All land belongs to someone and riding on it requires the owners permission - simple

Practising at ANY C&NW Trials venue, with the exception of Hawks Nest & Alvanley Trials Ground (by prior arrangement) is not allowed

If you're caught by the land owner, or if they find there have been riders practising we will lose the use of the venue completely. NO LAND = NO TRIALS!
