We currently organise around 20 trials every year, with competitive classes for all types of  British manufactured machines, four strokes to 1965 and two stroke to 1970. Our trials feature eased clubman/rigid routes to suit all standards of rider where appropriate.

A further 'Gentle Route' was introduced for 2022 using white flags. The sections will be designed for beginners,senior, recovering riders and those looking for easier sections and a less taxing day's riding.

The Captain's Trial

Staged entirely on private land on the historic Castle Carr Estate, a former hunting estate with a faux castle and water gardens. The terrain offers a  superb mixture of steep wooded hill sides, rocky gullies and stream sections spread across a wide area. The event consists of 3 laps of 15 sections with catering and trade stands at the start. This events attracts the largest entry on our calendar. Places are limited and entries must be made by post before the event. Due to the nature of the terrain, no 'Gentle route' will be set.

Big Bike Trials

Run over a number of rounds where possible, the competitive classes are limited to pre-unit bikes and large capacity twins nominally over 345cc).  Other classes of bikes are welcome on a non-competitive basis, There is one medium/easy route. The Bob Barker Trophy goes to the rider losing the lowest total marks lost in all rounds.
