The Centre has arranged for some ground works to be carried out at Alvanley Trials ground in July.  In order to achieve the target of clearing out over grown parts of the venue and improving other areas, we are looking for volunteers to help out with clearing brash, brambles, branches etc.

The dates for the work parties are:

2nd & 3rd July
9th & 10th July

Just turn up from 10am onwards. See bottom of Trials venues page. Closest post code WA6 9HA

All that is required are some bodies, armed with gloves, and gardening implements - loppers, saws, scythes and one or two responsible adults with a chainsaw and appropriate safety equipment.

Please note that no motorcycles will be allowed.

Great turn out for Ron Hulme funeral on Tuesday 14th June. Ron was one of Manchester 17s hardest working members for several decades at the end of the last century before his diabetes stole his fitness and his ability to continue with his lifelong love of off road motorcycling. He left a great legacy in 2 Sons, John and Alan who remain probably the best trials riders the club has known. Hell be missed but his work laid a great foundation for me personally and us all. Ken Roberts. President

All land belongs to someone and riding on it requires the owners permission - simple

Practising at ANY C&NW Trials venue, with the exception of Hawks Nest & Alvanley Trials Ground (by prior arrangement) is not allowed

If you're caught by the land owner, or if they find there have been riders practising we will lose the use of the venue completely. NO LAND = NO TRIALS!

Man 17 Hawks Nest Trial for the Councillor J D Robinson Trophy

Adults and youths

No Easy Route- sorry

The course is wholly on private ground and will probably consist of:

About 10 sections and 4 laps. The sections will have 2 routes and a 50/50 route - the Normal (yellow/white flags) will have natural sections and little need for technical riding such as in a more traditional "club" trial. The Hard route (red and blue flags) will be of a more technical and athletic nature requiring skills and effort as would be expected in a good "Centre" trial. There will be a 50/50 route with a mix of the hard and yellow/white flag sections.

Signs off A53 Buxton Leek road about 3 miles from Buxton.

2PM Saturday 30 July Man 17 Dead Easy Trial

Adults and youths all classes

The course is wholly on private ground.

The sections will have 2 routes the "Dead Easy" course will be such that an experienced Novice would expect to finish on not more than 5 marks. The harder route on the "Dead Easy" course will have sections where an Expert should finish clean and an experienced Novice should expect to finish on less than 20 marks. By way of the Dead Easy route there should be no need for a Conducted Course but those with electric machines should bring spare batteries if possible.
