The Somerton British Bike Only Classic Trials Weekend 2017

If you have a trials bike and have always fancied having a go but not been quite sure, then this is the place to have a try! There are trials on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning with a choice of 3 routes with the ‘gentleman’s route’ being very easy.

The whole atmosphere is laid back and great fun and would provide a great introduction to trials or just to have a ride around. There will also be plenty of GRA members around to give advice or help with mechanical problems or any other issues. It really is a great weekend so why not come down, have a ride and a good laugh!
