Why pay £56.50 when I can go out and ride green lanes without being a member of the TRF?

That’s a fair question and one that does get asked year in year out. The simplest, easiest, can’t be topped reason is that your £56.50 contributes to the ‘fighting fund’, a critical pot of money that the TRF uses to mount legal challenges to proposed lane closures. The sustainability of trail riding is one of the TRF’s core principles. You undertake to do what you can to use ride responsibly and protect Green Lanes from undue damage and TRF will protect your rights to use them, now and into the future. Our Rights of way teams, Lawyers and General Counsel will fight on your behalf to make sure you have access to the land you love riding now and long into the future. So, if you do in fact hold a law degree, and enjoy riding green lanes, and don’t mind taking your local council to court then great, no need to join. However if you don’t, for the price of a new tyre you really owe it to yourself to become a member.

Improve your riding

Most of us can remember the first time we ventured out on a trail bike. Perhaps you were lucky enough to be born and raised on two wheels, but for the rest of us it is more likely that the trails were a way of rediscovering motorcycling, a new way of riding away from the high speed thrills of the open road. Until you own a trail bike, the idea of your pride and joy being anything other than upright is disastrous, yet for most newbies this is exactly what lies ahead. Riding slow speed on technical routes, learning how to control your bike, how to fall off and how to get going again is all part of the enjoyment of trail riding. You could do it on your own, but learning within the camaraderie and banter of the TRF is a far richer experience!

About Us

The TRF is the National, voluntary and non-competitive body formed in 1970 by people who enjoyed exploring 'Green Roads' by motorcycle. Our aim is to conserve our heritage of Green Roads for everyone to enjoy. The Trail Riders fellowship is the only body representing trail riders that is recognized by Government and Local Authorities as being the Authoritative and Responsible face of Trail Riding.
