I'm a hopeless addict of them. There's always a 'never again' moment at about 3 a.m. but this tends to get forgotten when the entry forms for the next event come out.

The overnight ones referred to in the link are technically quite straightforward but due to the endurance factor (weather, time, distance) and scoring system it's quite easy to turn an award winning ride into a 'nice day/night out'.

Great thing about them is you can use just about any bike with some off-tarmac capability - see the entry list for the Edinburgh Trial I just did.

There's also lots of more technically challenging long distance trials with entries full of small dual-sports - link to the site of an active LDT club.
