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!

Date Club Event Details
11AM Tuesday 26 Dec 2017 Man17 Boxing Day Madness Trial

Youth ride free at Manchester 17

Enter at start - stop allowed observing

‘Watty’s’ off Sandhill Lane. Signs off A626 Maple Bridge - Glossop road approx. About 2 miles from Marple Bridge. Close post code SK6 5NP. OS grid ref: SJ 994 908. Lat 53.413564 Long -2.0107535

The course is wholly on private ground and will probably consist of about 10 sections and 4 laps. There will be 3 routes. The easy (white markers) route will have simple easy sections such as those on the hard route of a Dead Easy trial. The middle (yellow markers) route will have natural sections with some need for technical riding such as in a more traditional "club" trial. The hard route (red and blue markers) will be of a more technical and athletic nature requiring skills and effort as would be expected in a good "Centre" trial.
