Had one of the most fun days ever last Sunday doing the above with the Launceston and North Cornwall Motor Club. 75 miles and 21 observed section of lovely Devon and Cornwall countryside with the final sections in sight and smell of the sea on the North Cornwall coast. Everyone friendly, no one taking it too seriously and every kind of bike you could imagine from old British pre-unit singles to modern trail bikes, and a Honda C90!

One or two bods on Freerides...but more would be welcome next year!

Pretty much anything could do it...just needs to be legal, reasonably quiet, and (if you want to be in the results) have non 'super sticky' trials tyres on. A guy got around clean on a BSA 250 C15T last year. TBH trials tyres are as good as anything for Devon & Cornwall trails anyway, and don't cut up the ground as much as enduro tyres.

Gas Gas Pampera 250 Mk III...pretty much the best bike for the job, not that it made up for my ineptitude!

Bookmarked for if & when someone will lend me wheels
16 October this year.

There's also a 'short-distance trial' on 30 March. LDT-style sections, but all in one plot of private woodland.

And a 'testing trial' (wobbling around cones in a wet field sprinkled with cow pats) on 21 August. You can do that with virtually any motorbike or car. There was a 6 year old girl competitor on a bike with a strimmer engine last year...who was really upset when she found it was a whole year to go before the next one! There was also someone on a Triumph Tiger triple, and someone in a rally car. It's as funny as hell.

Just don't take any of the events too seriously.
