>Getting Started ~ Trail bikes

This is non-competitive and offers you freedom to explore along legal trails through the countryside. The bikes tend to be a little bit more road than off-road orientated, but do feature high mudguards to stop mud clogging the tyres, knobblies and a torquey powerband which is useful for negotiating narrow, bumpy and slippery trails. They range in size from 125cc to 1000cc. If you're interested, we strongly recommend you joining the Trail Riders Fellowship (TRF), so you don't stray from the designated paths and give other trail riders a bad name!
