Trials Training



An introduction to Trials Riding

BUMPY is now able to offer Trials training to adults who would like to have a taster of Trials riding without having to buy their own bike or for people who have their own bike and would like to improve their riding . Riders can be at any level but previous riding experience (e.g. road riding) would be an advantage. Assessment will be carried out to BUMPY’s own in house Award scheme which includes BUMPY Bronze Parts 1 to 4, BUMPY Silver and BUMPY Gold.

Outline syllabus
