Thanks to all those who responded to our appeal to object to the prejudiced actions of the Peak District National Park management in making every effort to ban motorcycling. Its just as much our park as theirs. Lets see what happens to Jacobs Ladder now.

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!

Venue:‘Watty’s’ off Sandhill Lane. Signs off A626 Maple Bridge - Glossop road approx. About 2 miles from Marple Bridge.

click here

Course probably: 10 sections and 4 laps. There will be 3 routes. The easy (white markers) route will have simple easy sections such as those on the hard route of a Dead Easy trial. The middle (yellow markers) route will have natural sections with some need for technical riding such as in a more traditional "club" trial. The hard route (red and blue markers) will be of a more technical and athletic nature requiring skills and effort as would be expected in a good "Centre" trial.

Free membership for riders and observers for 2019.
