The Trials Club of Canberra is located at Fairbairn Trials Park (Google Maps Link).
The park caters for all skill levels from juniors as young as 5 years old through to A grade riders. There is parking and an unloading area just inside the gate, with toilet facilities located adjacent about 300m away.
Access to the park is only accessible during one of the organised club training, social or event day. Please check the calendar for dates and times.
Expatriate Welshman and local motorcycle identity Taffy Williams was the driving force behind the Motor Cycle Club of Canberra’s decision to promote Trials in 1970. Their first Open Trial was conducted in 1971 at Whiterocks just outside Queanbeyan.
Rounds of the NSW Trials Championships were run in 1976, and then every year from 1978 to 2009, and again in 2011. The Club also ran an extremely successful Australian Observed Trials Championship in 1979 in Stromlo Forest.
The entire Trials membership of the MCC of Canberra decided to form a specialist Trials club and on the 1st July 1984 the Trials Club of Canberra Inc. assumed the mantle of Observed Trials promoter in the Canberra region.
TCC was affiliated with Motorcycling NSW / Motorcycling Australia until December 2020.
From January 2021 until December 2022 we were aligned with the Automobile and Motorcycle Association (AMA).
From January 2023 we have Affiliated with Motorcycling NSW / Motorcycling Australia.
TCC currently runs 6 Trials and a Two Day Fun Trial during a season running from February through to November. The venues range from Murringo, near Young, to Top Naas near Tharwa, and are provided through the generosity of local landholders. TCC also has an area within Fairbairn Park in Pialligo Avenue, Majura, that is a legal permanent practice area.
We also promoted the Masters Shield at one Trial each year since 1999. The name was formally changed to the Howard Wallace Masters Shield to honour the memory of club stalwart Howard Wallace after his passing as a result of Moto Neurone Disease.
Riders from the Trials Club of Canberra have competed at every Australian Trials Championship since 1984.
TCC has always been very much a family orientated club with a strong Junior contingent. This is reflected in the ten NSW Junior Trials Championship victories since 1984.
TCC members have represented Australia in both Mens and Womens TdN Teams, as well as the Australian Team in the Oceania Trial previously known as the Trans Tasman Shield.
