Scottish Biketrial Club
was set up in late 2010 after running two fun trial events in late
2010. In 2011 we set up a seven championship trials in Kinlochleven ,
Ayrshire, East Lothian and Fort William areas. 2012 included some
training days and a new Scottish championship with new venues added.
In 2016 we'll be running some club events and a round of the
British Trials Cup.
trials are easily the most skillfull bike sport with
the riders needing balance and bike control to get themselves
and their bikes through the observed sections without
trials cater for all ages and abilities, so dads can
ride with their sons and mums with their daughters.
You can even share the bikes if you like!
trials consist of two or three laps of six to eight
sections, with different routes to cater for the different
classes. The rider is marked if they put their foot
down or fail to get through the section in the maximum
time, or fall off the bike. The rider with the lowest
score at the end of the day is the winner. The sections
are laid out to make sure that all riders can have a
good and safe attempt at each section and it is only
when you reach expert level that the parts of the sections
get huge, but by then you should know what you are doing!
trials have special bikes with very low weight and no
seat; they vary in wheel size from 20 inch, 24 inch
and 26 inch. It is down to rider preference what they
compete on. These bikes are available second hand for
only a few hundred pounds and from new from around three
hundred to a few thousand. Generally riders buy a cheaper
bike with a good frame and then modify them with lighter
bits as they progress. The riders are always happy to
let new riders have a go on their bikes to get a feel
for what they like.
