there is quite a few places near you, i cant remember any though (everytime i come up to queensbury, i want to bring my bike) its basicly the same as motocross, your not alowed to ride most places, but as the bikes are not as loud, we tend not to get any hassle

im not sure if you can go any where to learn, best option is to just go and buy a bike,


your local club http://www.bradfordtrials.btinternet.co.uk/


you can pick up a tidyish bike for about ƒ‚‚£500, colin appleyard and jk hirst are close to you,

or even beta uk (dougie lampkins uncle) in silsden,

down here quite a few farmers will let you ride on there farms, (normaly charge a fiver)


theres a few places down south that do trials weekends, but i think you need to take your own bike?



just phoned my cousin, he said ''the flappit'' on the keighley/ halifax road nr denholme


or try here,
