What is biketrial?
Sussing out the river section!
Even JEEP trust us to ride bikes over their brand new vehicles!
Charlie Rolls at Hook Woods, already a titled winner and a star of the future.  Charlie started his competitions at Crowthorne Cycle Trials Club and at TykeTrial Club.
Adam Morewood, a regular attendee at BIU World events and world titles. Adam started trials at the TykeTrial Club on his 6th birthday!
Sam Shepherd at Bob Macgregor, a winner for the future?

BikeTrial is the art and skill of riding your bike over and between obstacles, showing balance and fitness. Ideally not touching the 'section' with anything except the bike's tyres!

Some people ride special 20" wheeled bikes, or even smaller for the younger children. Other people ride 26" mountain bikes, others ride the newish 24" bikes. It really doesn't matter which. The aim is to ride your bike, learn new skills, make new friends and to enjoy yourself!

Come along to a competition, classes at clubs start with Beginners, Novice, Intermediate, Expert and Elite ~ self-graded on ability.

Give competitions a go in 2016, you don't need to be the best, classes are available for all riding abilities, just come along, meet new people, learn new skills in a great atmosphere, and have a good time!        

All the riders pictured started trials in club and British national competitions, they weren't all as good to start as you see them in photos now ... you could be one of them in the future - just give it a go!

In 2015 the awards were presented to the winners by Danny Macaskill, Alistair Clarkson and Duncan Shaw of the video and Rock'n'roll fame ... All three were regular attendees of British Trials in their youth!  Well done on a successful career guys!  Even now they sometimes appear at a Scottish Biketrial Club event!

Andrei Burton at Hook Woods, a well-known player at UCI World Cups and trials demos started his training at Essex Biketrial Club.
