Welcome to the
Wiltshire Trail Riders Fellowship
"Conserving Green Roads for the enjoyment of everyone"
Wiltshire TRF are all members of the National TRF, the UK's largest organisation for Trail Riding.
Trail Riding is the riding of road legal motorbikes that are suitable for use on the "unsealed" roads or "Byways Open to All Traffic" (BOATs) and "Unclassified County Roads" (UCRs) referred to as Green Lanes or Trails.
There are only 6,000 miles of BOATs in England and Wales compared to the 115,000 miles of footpaths, bridleways and restricted byways and 208,000 miles of road. The TRF exists to help preserve access to these historic BOATs, as well as helping new and existing members learn where they can and can’t ride (and why) through our network of experienced riders, promoting a confident and responsible code of conduct that ensures all countryside users are able to enjoy our diverse landscape well into the future.
If you want to find out more about the National TRF please go to the website www.trf.org.uk where you can find details on the following:
Wiltshire TRF are a friendly enthusiastic group that have a vast knowledge and experience of responsible riding on the trails within Wiltshire and the surrounding counties. We use all manner of motorcycles, kit and riding gear and would like nothing better than to provide advice and share our knowledge with you. We always ride with consideration to other countryside users and follow the TRF Code of Conduct www.trf.org.uk/portfolio-item/what-about-other-countryside-users/
We meet every month where we discuss recent ride outs, future ride outs, rights of way as well as planning the support we provide to horse and mountain biking events. If your a new TRF member or are just considering joining, please come along to one of our meetings where you'll be given a warm welcome and get to know more about what the TRF does and what it could offer you. We normally have a rideout on the first weekend after the monthly meeting to give potential new TRF members the opportunity and experience to get out on the trails with experienced riders who can provide advice on where you can ride, the kit you need and the types of bikes to suit the style of trail riding your interested in.
Our next TRF meeting is on:
8pm Tuesday 3rd October 2017 at "The Fox and Hounds",
Meetings start at 8pm in the function room/skittle alley, get there early for a drink and a chat beforehand.
We also have a monthly social get together. The social is held each month in a nominated location around the county(s), and on a different day to the formal TRF meeting, to give members and non members the opportunity for a drink and a chat if they are unable to make the formal TRF meeting in Devizes.
The next social is to be confirmed.
We have an "open" Facebook page at the link below.
We also have a closed Facebook page for TRF members at the link below:
This is used for organising rideouts and general motorbike chat.
