Trail bikes

The term ‘trail bike’ refers to a type of agile, easy-to-handle multi-purpose motorcycle that allows you to travel over unpaved terrain like paths, tracks and forest trails, although they can also be ridden on the road. Trail bikes have single-cylinder or twin-cylinder V- engines, a cylinder capacity of between 350 and 750 cubic centimetres, almost no aerodynamic fairing and a fairly high seat, around 880 millimetres. It measures two and a half metres in length. An all-terrain motorcycle means you can travel over a wide range of different mountain terrains at fairly high speeds. Unlike motocross, trail biking competitions are held on open tracks and are very long, often lasting several days. There are two different types. Enduro is a speciality recognised by the International Motorcycling Federation. These races take place over one or two days and cover close to 200 kilometres. In contrast a rally is a long race over a long distance, where drivers need to combine speed and navigation skills. Club Ris-Ras Enduro (in the district of Santa Oliva, Tarragona) has a permanent track in Albornar where a competition is held each year. It also organises courses for individuals of all ages and skill levels.
