You can see footgae of MCN's intrepid MCN Live editor Dave Rawlings and reporter Rob Hull tackling a new trials school aimed at novices.

The school has been introduced by the same people who introduced the 'I want to wheelie' school. A maximum of six pupils take part in one session, which is located in woodland near Milton Keynes.

Organisers Paul and Darren began by teaching balance, wheelies over logs and hill climbing. And Rawlings was impressed:

"The highlight is climbing the widow maker. Well, i tried to climb it, but stalled and nearly chucked the bike back down the hill. I'd only ever gone off-road by taking a corner too fast, but this course was great fun, and also taught me about balance and handling of road bikes as well as off-road. I've well and truly caught the off-road bug, and I'm looking for second-hand trials bikes"

The Novice Trials school coss £135. Contact: 07786-635796 or 07791 180539.
