As some of you may know I have relocated to the Natal North Coast that is the reason I did not ride the 2015 season. It's a pity I missed the season as the Intermediate class looked very competitive and my riding coming off the 2014 season had improved a lot.
I especially miss the classic Trials riding and always looked forward to riding the John Fulcher memorial trial in Constantia. Thinking about it now I have ridden the past 3 and each time on a different twin shock which I had partially restored.
I have bought a Beta 250 which I am really enjoying (ok Charles you can comment now about the number of bikes I have had in one season!! ) but....I am battling to find venues and even another Trials rider never mind a club.
I am thinking of starting a similar website to Cape Trials for Natal enthusiasts hoping to connect riders and venues together and eventually start a small informal club.
I have prepared a short brochure on Trials riding which I have given out to a few land owners...waiting on the response. Yesterday I found an area near Salt Rock with the help of a backactor I will be able to move some boulders, concrete pipes and a few large wooden cable reels I spotted nearby to make up some sections.
So this is an appeal to anybody in Natal, non-riders, riders or land owners to please PM me with your details.
To all Cape Trials riders you guys are really privileged to have a club with so many enthusiastic members as well as amazing venues.
