If you would like a FREE ride out to see if trail riding is for you then please contact us. After this you can then decide if you would like to become a TRF member.
If you're a new member or are thinking about joining us, please initially contact John Heal on 01626 366860. Alternatively please JOIN THE DTRF Forum for any local ride outs .
We have an informal monthly meeting which members or non-members can attend. During this meeting we briefly discuss Devon TRF business, introduce new members, arrange rides and generally talk about bikes.
HOW TO JOIN NATIONAL TRF
When joining the National TRF (which you must do to become a member of a local Group), simply specify that you'd like to join the Devon Group. There is no additional charge for this. Once your details are received locally, you will be sent a pack to welcome you to the Devon Group, which sets out all you need to know to start riding with us.
The National TRF's website can be found here. The online registration process can be completed in a matter of minutes and payments can also be made online (if you prefer, you can choose to pay by cheque).
Once you're a member of the National TRF you will receive issues of the TRF's "Trail" magazine containing useful information, letters, articles, ride reports, equipment tests, competitions, features and stories, classified sales, and useful contacts.
We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Devon Group!

What you get when you register with the Devon Group
Mapping of over 1,100 legal green lanes in Devon. This is probably the most important item we can give you*. We produce Memory Map overlays (you will need to buy Memory Map software to view these) and Google Earth Overlays (Google Earth is a free download) which you can, as a Devon Member of the TRF, request to be e-mailed to you. These are updated frequently and will show you where the legal-to-use routes are in Devon.
The opportunity to go out trail riding with experienced riders - we have frequent runs in all areas of Devon and sometimes we venture into neighbouring counties.
Technical assistance - whether it's for your bike or your computer we have the breadth of knowledge within our existing membership to help you.
