Why are the TRF doing this?
The membership that make up the new TRF is fast changing and the TRF Directors are leading a programme to assist newer young riders that are interested in trail riding to join the TRF and learn about responsible trail riding.
We get many enquiries from young riders who are interested in trail riding and we, the TRF Membership, need to make it clear to young riders who go trail riding, that the first step is to attend a CBT course.
"Off the Kerb Trail riding" whose directors are long term existing TRF members, have been in discussion over CBT and young riders since last year. They also have great relationship with Fantic and run a fleet of learner legal trail bikes. More recently the TRF was invited a meeting at Mick Extance Experience Centre to discuss Safety training and met with East Midlands TRF member Paul Nunn of Shire motorcycle training who handle the bookings for Mick Extance Experience. Paul has an amazing team of trainers including young lady instructors with strong trail riding skills. He also has a fleet of Kawasaki KLX 125 for CBT use. From the TRF’s perspective it became clear that training on safe, legal and courteous riding starts with the CBT, rather than leaving it till later.
Off the Kerb and Shires have offered to look after the first step the CBT, and we are looking for young riders ideally 16 for moped and 17 for 125cc in need of a CBT
