When is it too late to get into trials? As many of us age and start looking back to our youth,we are picking back up a lot of the sports that were left behind, trial biking included. Recently a member joined up to ask this very question.




39 years old and coming from mountain biking, one of our newest members wanted to make sure it wasn't to late to start into trials.

With all the advice presented by the experts it's clear, you're never to old to start.

Stop by this thread and weigh in on this topic. When did you start, how old are you now, and how much further are you going to take this?

Turning 60 next month, been riding bike trials for about 8 years or so and am still loving it and still gaining skills and finesse. It's tied with riding enduro on my 525 KTM exc motorcycle for being my favorite recreational activity.

38yo, started when I was 18. It's not as relevant to TGS, but it still feels good to stick a clean line.

I started when I was 45 and am 60 now.
Not quite as adventurous as I was, but still having fun.

I just turned 53 and my first trials bike should be in my hands tomorrow. I've ridden motorcycle trials and intend to do so again, I'm intending to improve my balance, technique and fitness on the bicycle. I certainly don't expect to be doing anything big, but if I can get to the point of precisely moving the bike around and hopefully hopping on the rear then I'll be happy. I think I can practice my developing skills almost anywhere. Good to see other older riders are out there..
