Our next trial is at a great new venue on the 19th February, and we are really excited about riding there! The trial starts at 10:30am with three routes for all adult solos and youth A, B & C.
We have managed to get permission to use this land that we used to use 20 years ago. At the landowners request, there is to be no riding on this land except for organised events, doing so risks losing this land again!
Our final Oset trial of this series was held on Saturday at Eadons Field. Again there were lots of kids who came along to ride their first trial which was lovely to see.
