Barnsley Trials Club (Adult & Youth Moto-Trials)

Barnsley Trials Club Welcomes Adult & Youth Riders From Beginners To Expert. 

We are a great club for biking enthusiasts, we have members who are both young and young at heart - someone who hadn't taken part in a trial for over 30 years joined us earlier this month and was amazed by how welcome he was made to feel and how much of a blast we had.

Some things to consider before you join us.

  • You might fall off
  • You will get 'mucky'
  • You will be made to feel welcome
  • You will make friends for life.

We hold regular year round trials and events. Join our Facebook group to see what we've been up to and where 

If you didnt know; The Trial Event is split into sections where a competitor rides through an obstacle course while attempting to avoid touching the ground with their feet. The obstacles in the course may be of natural or constructed elements. In all sections, regardless of content, the designated route is carefully contrived to test the skill of the rider.

In many local observed trials events, the sections are divided into separate courses to accommodate the different skill level of riders, who compete in skill-rated classes. Barnsley Trials Club operates the following routes:

  • White Beginner
  • Yellow Easy 
  • Green Medium
  • Red/Blue Hard

In every section, the competitor is scored by an observer (hence the sport's name) who counts how many times the competitor touches the ground with the foot or any other part of the body! Each time a competitor touches the ground with a foot (commonly called "dabs" or "prods"), the penalty is one point.

No ACU license required as we run under the AMCA, £15 entry for adults, £10 Youth A/B and £5 Youth C/D.

Observers required, anyone riding on the day that brings an observer will receive a free ride, please try and help if you can as we have been struggling for observers on the last few trials.

We meet at various locations throughout Barnsley and Beyond, so just give us a ring, bring yourself, bring your dirt bike and get ready to get muddy!

Hope to see you soon.
