UK Unicycle Trials Championships 2020

UK Unicycle Trials Championships

22nd-25th May 2020

STFU London smashed onto the scene three years ago with  the aim of reviving urban unicycling in the UK. We've hosted the UK Trials Championships for the last two years running and we're excited to be holding the event for a third year!

 

 

The UK Unicycle Trials Championships always attracts riders from all over Europe and has been described as one of the most relaxed events on the unicycle calendar. The venue is the amazing Radical Bikes Trials Park in Essex who have one of the best permanent trials courses in the UK. When competitions are not running, the course is open for free riding. Read the full details below or if you want to just jump straight in, hit the button and buy your tickets now!

Competitions

There will be various riding activities to join in with over the weekend with an emphasis on the three main competitions.

Venue

As always, the venue is the amazing Radical Bikes located near Chelmsford, Essex.

We used Radical Bikes for the last two years and they couldn't have been better. The staff at Radical bikes love unicycling and make us feel really welcome; Tom even competed last year! Rad has the biggest permanent trials course in the UK which gets moved around every year to keep things fresh. As well as the permanent obstacles, we'll be adding our own and modifying some of the course to make it extra challenging for unicycles. The course is graded according to the difficulty level of the obstacles, so don't worry if you've only just learnt to jump or have been riding trials for 20 years, there is something for everyone.
