Anyone in northern Ohio ride trials?

Like the tittle says, just seeing if anyone up here rides trials. I understand that trialsinc is the main club for the area but with schedule and kids I don't have that kind of time to drive to southern Ohio.

Check the Trials Inc. website. Bound to be plenty of Ohio trials riders, they just don't hang out here.

Looks like you have a two hour drive to find trials, I saw that and did not respond. I was raised in little bitty Haskins, but what 1350 miles now.

Yeah, for competitions it seems like southern Ohio s really it. I was just hoping for someone local to ride with. Meh, maybe I'll just join Trials Inc.

Wow, I lived in Waterville, well, just across the river in wood county. Never met any one actually from there. That was 2500 miles and 25 years ago.

But that's about right. Here in WA, I drive 2 to 3 hrs for meets, in California 2 to 4 from the Bay Area. Going to meets you meet more people who know people, who know people.

Also meets are great for mentoring. And no worries about being shy about your abilities. I cleaned 2 sections last weekend, the rest were 5 and 3s (new bike, couldn't get the speed or turning right). Trust me, I got plenty of mentoring, and soaked up every bit of it. Great bunch of folks, these trials people.

Sorry, No one in Ohio rides trials.
At least not well.

I remember 50 years ago sledding just across the river beside the bridge.

I am in the Akron area and would like to give trials riding a shot. I don't have a trials bike yet but will when I can find something decent used. If you guys figure somewhere to ride relatively close please send me a PM. As for dirt riding I head to PA, MI or places like Crow Canyon and Bear Creek a little to the south of me.
