The Mission of the Empire Tryal Club (E.T.C.) continues to be: Provide every Trial Rider the opportunity to get the most enjoyment and fulfillment possible, while pursuing their own individual interests and goals for Riding, Wrenching, and Socializing.
*Ride here whenever your schedule permits- day (or night) as long as we are here. And we’re here nearly 24/7
*Ride on our scheduled Practice days/nights- Every Saturday and Wednesday (even in winter- ‘cuz we’re crazy like that)
*Ride our 2018 Adventure Ride (in the woods)- Location/Date TBA
*Ride our Scheduled HalfMoon (part day/part night) Events- dates below.Note: For two years now the HalfMoon Events are with no sign-up fee and we were very pleased many members brought a dish to pass for the snack table.We really like the feel of that, and will continue it this season. These events will start late in the day with a loop in the daylight and the rest under the lights.(Non-members are also welcomed to ride these events for a $10 sign-up fee)
The Property:Our 10 groomed areas (with Night Lighting) have a variety of terrain options: Hills, Off-Camber Turns, Logs of Various Sizes, Rock Climbs, Steps, and Ledges. There are challenges for every skill-level rider.Our sections are purposely built for honing specific techniques-- & riding advice is always available from our Experts- Aaron & Mike. (One-on-One Specialized Riding Instruction and Lesson Packages are also available -please see the Website or give us a call)
The Shop is open to members to work on their bike repairs or their routine bike maintenance (please bring your own hand tools).Free tech advice is always available while you’re working (or we can do the shop work if you prefer).
Socializing and Fun:
Because of our unique set-up here, we are completely family-friendly and spectator-friendly.All sections can be easily watched.The loop is short for those on foot, and sitting by the pond in our beautiful setting or swinging on the swing are widely encouraged. We have Food and Drinks in the Shop, Wi-Fi, Shop Bathroom, A four-legged friend that loves hands-on, and lots and lots of chairs if you want to chat and chill.
