Welcome to the Welsh Trail Riders Association (WTRA)For the 2016 Snowrun, BobP has been “remembering” tracks of old and taking on board the feed-back from last years event (like you think he listens !) and you will certainly be in a for a good ride this year with plenty of flowing trails and a revisit to the Glyn Saer forest as well as Crychan- you certainly will not be cold. Steve Plain will again be helping set out the Special TestEaster we will be running the Drover Enduro and this will incorporating test using Arwel’s Father’s land again. The test will be accessible for spectators to come and watch. The Snowrun Enduro and Drovers Enduro are again again part of the 2016 Welsh Enduro Championship.We are planning on running two 2 days rallys again this year with the Beacons Rally returning to its usual slot of mid August and the Cambrian Rally in October. The Cambrian is going to include some new routes and trails this year.Great news - the ACU has now introduced free Road Traffic Accident cover for all out events. As our events are all ACU sponsored, this cover is free to you all and included in your event entry.Illegal Riding in the Crychan, Glyn Saer and Halfway forestsLocal people living in the area, who have legitimate access, have reported a significant increase in illegal motorcycle off-road activity in these forests. There have also been a number of "near misses" between horse riders and local road legal cars accessing property within the forest and the illegal motorcyclists. As a consequence of this illegal riding, an accident is almost inevitable. Also some of the illegal motorcyclists have been offensive and abusive to both local people and forestry officials when challenged. Some have even tried to make out that they are authorised WTRA officials planning enduro and rally courses.As such the Crychan Forest Association have been in discussion with the Police, local Forestry Commission and Landmarc regarding ways of curtailing this illegal off-road riding activity. Members of the public living in the area will now be gathering evidence in the form of pictures and recording registration details of vehicles and bikes operating illegally within the area. Details of the illegal activities will then be passed onto the Police to investigate. WTRA will give further full support to these actions and pass on details to the ACU, the sport's governing body, to ensure action is taken against the culprits. The future of such classic events such as the Snow Run and Drovers Enduros and the Beacons and Cambrian Rallies is now under severe threat.If illegal riding continues there will be a significant impact on the ability of WTRA to run events on Forestry Commission land. Permission to run events will cease within these forests and popular enduro and rally events will no longer run. WTRA members are only allowed to ride in these forests on the date of the event and for set up purposes, when permits are issued to event officials only.
