well … thinking of re-joining the TRF .. 8-) :D



local rideouts dont seem to be happening, or are done in secret, :(
and when I advertise rideouts, there is no or little response, or excuses. :oops:

So thought I might as well re join
as at least there are rides, and I know a lot of the members,
one even suggested I return :o


tbh honest the trf seems to be the only organisation about

Yeah, there was that alternative started (Trail Riders Association) but they never seemed to expand beyond the single group in Yorkshire, shame really.

I'm ok riding alone, but I can see how people who like group rides might be tempted to follow the dark side :D

Just to give you an update regarding our last discussion regarding the TRF and you suggesting that I needed to move on.
I have contacted my local TRF (Hampshire) by email and have tried calling. I am still waiting for a reply. Nearly a month on.

PM me your mobile numbers then if either of you are up for ride I will let you know when and where I am off. Can't do much due to family commitments but anything is better than nothing

Our local Gloucestershire TRF group is very pro active with ride outs , seem like a decent bunch of guys , I believe that a bunch of riders are coming to the ABR rally from Glos TRF , I haven't been out with them yet as I prefer to ride alone or with max two other riders , I would certainly say that anyone wanting regular ride outs Glos TRF would be a good shout.

Irrespective of internal politics, with the very honourable exception of Hugh, the TRF are the only ones I know of providing substantial defence of trail riding.

I do not agree with some of their methods and the spin but feel coughing up the subs does at least help court defences of TROs.

Sussex group are pretty active but it does seem a minefield getting into contact with some groups.
Too much fragmentation and loss of the original forum because certain directors didn’t like it were detrimental in my humble opinion.

The riding group we have could survive on it’s own but we do all stay within the TRF.

The TRF would function better if the national forum were reinstated rather than the message board which replaced it which seems to only get a couple of posts a day .
