About trials cycling
Biketrial is a cycling discipline where the goal is to cycle up, over, between and down various obstacles. The obstacles can be anything from a wall edge in the city to a pile of stones in the forest.
In a competition, one must cycle several obstacle courses, where the aim is to finish without touching the ground or the obstacles with anything other than the tires of the bicycle.
Biketrial can be considered a lifestyle sport, and many do it completely outside of competitions and organized forms.
