Vehicle Parking

Scotch Corner Services

The car park we all tend to use at Scotch Corner in the far corner of the hotel car park no one ever uses is now being patrolled by the jobs worth employed by the site owners to hand out parking fines , he takes photos of vehicles left for long periods and then posts the fine to the address of the vehicle owner, a local trf er has just shown me his 50 quid fine .So be warned the car park is no longer FREE

Illegal Riders

The T.R.F. are now working with Police to try and combat illegal riders. The joint effort will help in prosecutions of illegal off road activity.

The coffee shop at Lockton on the route to Scarborough is open.

They have a Muddy room and a Clean room ,so all are welcome.

On the 16th & 17th of July 2011 the roman road from Bainbridge to Hawes had some repairs made to it. There was a small 400 metre section that needed ruts filling in. The Teesside & North Yorkshire TRF members attended to assist the National Park with the repair. Hopefully this will prevent the road from being closed due to a bad state of repair.

Permissive route lost.


TRF riders have now been told in no uncertain fashion that permission has now been withdrawn at the Gollingforth end of the Red Way. The final part of the lane has always been permissive.

Looking after Green Lanes means some graft. What better way to improve the image of the TRF than going out ,onto your favourite Lane, clearing out the drainage channels and doing a "bit a bit of Pruning".

Every little helps. You can do a lot in a couple of hours and meet the Public. Your chance to put something back and show other users that the TRF really do care.

Important Notice for 2014 Members


After discussion with the committee. Teesside and North Yorkshire TRF's next meeting WILL BE HELD AT THE RANCH HOUSE August 19th 2014.


Top of the agenda is of course the proposal to change the venue to the Three Tuns, Thirsk.

Apologies to those who have already voted on this proposal via E-mail and anticipated a decision from the July meeting. But due to the Ranch House being closed the meeting had to be cancelled. However, your views are important and your vote will still be counted.


To clarify matters further:

The only motion on the table is:

Should the TNYTRF meetings be held at The Three Tuns, Thirsk in future?


The reasons for this proposal have been circulated previously by e mail, but if anyone would like to see the full proposal again then please E-mail either Gerry or myself & we will happily sent it out again.



Who can vote? Fully paid up members of the Trail Riders Fellowship affiliated to TNYTRF can vote.

How can you vote?

As agreed at the June meeting, Votes will be accepted until midnight 18th August 2014 Emailed to myself or Gerry (Copies of all Email votes will be available for scrutiny at the August meeting). Or you can turn up at The Ranch House on August 19th and vote by sticking your paw in the air. Door open about 7.30. Meeting starting about 8.30, Voting at 9 pm on the dot.


As there are a handful of members who appear to be Luddites and therefore have no e mail, I will contact them via telephone to keep them up to date. There is one member that I am aware of who has no email or telephone, if that's you I will send a pigeon !


Respectful regards, Craig Layfield, Chair
