    We bumped into some bloke who is quite good at trials at Bainbridge hill climb and he was genuinely interested in how my lad was getting on. The Lampkin family were there riding BSA’s up the hill for a laugh.
    It’s a great event with a really friendly atmosphere.

    Brilliant... fantastic father/son time
    Can’t wait to get my 1 year old on two wheels, he’s got a trike for now but will be on a balance bike in a couple of months.

    Balance bikes are awesome, our eldest was on one early, picked it up really quickly and transitioned to a pedal back with no stabilisers or accidents (touch wood) from first attempt onwards.... just not sure when to start the motorbike bit as we dont have a garden big enough and not sure where i can safely take him on it

    Brilliant sport to get a young one interested in, will meet a lot of like minded nice people as he progresses.
    There were quite a few Hamilton Yams down here as Pete Stewart ran the Stocksbridge Club and sponsored at lot of the Hillsborough club riders and Paul Rose of course. I always liked the engine in these but they were a bit of a disaster after the wholesale success of the TY250R, nothing like as agile as the Spanish and Italian offerings.

    My TYZ has been extensively 'modded' and rides quite well (turns as well as a modern bike, as headstock has been altered) and of course the engine is so creamy, yet powerful too............plus I just love the 'induction roar'

    Quite a different ride, compared to my 4RT

    First trial on the petrol bike at Cogden with Richmond motor club and a lot more to think about from the twist and go Oset. Couple of little hiccups but getting used to the clutch and gears. Said he enjoyed it so onwards and upwards !

    Excellent, Richmond is a good club for kids. Guisborough were always good, you also get a key for the practice ground near Slapwath when you join the club.

    We live in Richmond so going to join the Croft club and use their practice area. It’s £75 for the boy but I’m getting the bug so might get a father and son membership !

    Before you join
    Go have a look on foot first
    It can be greasy as it doesn't dry out and not much there
    I much prefer Scarborough's Low North Park as it is more varied and much larger - 10 to 15 times bigger and only costs £95 for the year

    Further to go, but worth it and make a day of it
