What is Biketrial?

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 2009, you don't need to be the best, classes are available for all riding abilities, just come along, meet new people in a great atmosphere, and have a good time!
