Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has got any recommendations for trials venues that involve rocky streams etc instead of the usual mud and slop that we have to ride though down here in the south, looking at traveling a bit further a field once things are back to normal! 

 

Cheers, Daniel

Yorkshire, it's all huge great rocks and natural streams

Or Devon, on Dartmoor

Peak district would be closer for you

Scotland is also very rocky

Take plenty of tools with you because when you drop the bike it will most likely get swamped and try to drink loads of sparkling river/stream water. You will need the tools to extract water. You probably carry some tools any way. If you should happen to ‘lose it’ if you can hit the kill button or yank the lanyard to stop the engine running and trying to turn itself into a water pump, so much the better. If you are riding in an organised trial....(unlikely at the moment).... the water sections should not be too deep but rocks will either be smooth or have weed or lichen like growth that will be very slippery. To ride the rock or rocks aim to place the bike as squarely as you can to the rock, lifting the front wheel in plenty of time to touch down on the top of the rock, then throw your body weight forward and use the throttle gingerly to pull the bike over the rock.  When its a collection of rocks try to pick a route that allows you to face each obstacle squarely, with rocks you shouldn’t really approach off angle as the rock will deflect the front wheel off your line.....potentially a bike drop problem.
