Snippets

We tried a change last year and switched venues for our Boxing Day Trial and the Sept Stony Green. The concensus of opinion appeared to be Stony is too tough in the winter. (Haha. As if Bixhead isn't tough too!) So we are back to 'normal'.

We initially feared for all future events on Forestry land as we were informed they would have to use a normal public Forestry car park and therefore be potentially parking miles away, crossing public roads and causing disruption to other car park users. Thanks to our organising team working with local Forestry officials a solution has been found to address the specific requirements of the venue for safety and minimising disruption.

Gaining permission to use the land is even more pleasing when you know there is a Police and Forestry operation underway in the Forest of Dean area to stop illegal and anti-social use of off-road bikes. The organising team appreciate that the Forestry and other Forest users all know there is a big difference between anti-social riding and an official ACU organised Trial, rather than the unfortunately held view that 'They are all illegal scramblers'! It is a shame that the Police name of the operation is 'Operation Endurance', which could be construed as a reference to Enduro bikes and tarring Enduro events with the same brush! Clearly, any type of bike can be used for illegal and anti-social riding and all the press reports from Operation Endurance when run in other parts of the county seem to show the expected stolen mopeds and scoooters (Don't let your genuine off-road bike be stolen and get trashed by the yob element!). Here is the official police report from the Cheltenham area.
