SOPS Wales is an unincorporated non-profit making Welsh organisation run entirely by volunteers.

It is a member of PDGLA, YDGLA and GLEAM.



SOPS is a Welsh Lobby Group dedicated to protecting our green lanes & countryside. An explosion in off-roader numbers has rendered many such public rights of way  unsuitable/ unsafe for other users.

Since June 2014, MPs and AMs have recognised that this anti-social activity/ behaviour requires legislation to control.

By raising awareness & gathering evidence SOPS helps move the process forward.
