Events marked Beginners / non members/open to all riders are for anyone including non TRF and TRF members. All Beginners rides are free to non members unless clearly stated otherwise.
Regarding tyre choice, conditions can vary but beginners rides are achievable on road/dual use tyres with care and the route is selected with this in mind, however knobblies are always advised (take into consideration the weather).
Ride fees & the Fighting Fund
Current Members – No ride fee for any TRF member on our area.
Non /Prospective TRF members
