Social Stuff:  :: We should say that there are other things being organised that don't appear here but you will find out about them if you come to Club Meetings!  :: Trail Ride reports can be found on our Articles page  :: Some of our riders also help Local Charities whilst out riding some tough events. And some of our helpers organise cakes and teas for donations to some of our favourite charities too so please dig deep. (Of course, some of us have first hand experience of the good work they do.)  :: More about Social Events on the Social Events page.  ::


Rights of Way: You are all aware of the major changes that have happened, but making sense of it all is a bit daunting. The best bit of info on the web at present is at LARA's pages. Here is our own RoW Page.


We now have an index for previous events and other club's events we've been out to... If it is not linked from there then it probably will be if you look on the Events calendar against the date the event was held.


Wilf Parker 1961 ISDT Shot - Julie & Ken FaullHistory: We've always had a good range of riders in the club capable of riding challenging Endurance events. Way back at the formation of this club Enduros were classed as Reliability Trials. Here is a shot of a founder member Wilf Parker at the Ultimate Reliability Trial - the International Six Days Trial event of 1961. And now you can see the original programme for 1961 thanks to ex-Wyegate rider Bill Kershaw (We lost Bill in 2018), who also rode that year, on the excellent SpeedTrackTales website. Bill sadly retired but our local hero Wilf Kept his 250 Greeves going for all 6 days earning a Bronze medal. Read the report and results in the Motor Cycle.
Our main History page will give more links to club history.
