The Sidcup & District Motor Cycle Club has been running trials since the club’s inception in 1928.
We run a busy schedule of trials events at our Canada Heights venue.  The trials we currently run are|:

The Sidcup Sixty Trial is on the third Sunday of each January.  Adult and Youth riders of all ages and in all classes can enter on ‘modern’ trials bikes.  The first Sidcup Sixty was in 1931.

Practice trials for Beginners and ‘Wobblers’ are held on Sundays in April and October.  Riders who are new to the sport can ride sections designed for beginners.  Riders on enduro and trail bikes can enter to get practice for Long Distance Trials sections.  There is no advance entering – just turn up, enter and ‘wobble away’.

Wednesday Evening Practice Trials are held in June and July.  These are similar to Wobblers Trials by having no observers or results.  Riders turn up from 5:00pm, enter and enjoy trials on a summer evening until dark!

The annual Timber Woods Long Distance Trial is held in July.  Road-Registered trail and enduro bikes use a Roadbook to follow a 90-mile course of roads and Byways in Kent.  We either start and finish at Canada Heights or at another venue in east Kent.

The Dick Dickenson Trial for the Simmons Cup is run in early November each year.  It is our North Kent Trials Combine (NKTC) trial, for adult and youth solo riders.  The Simmons Cup was Sidcup’s first ‘open’ trial, inaugurated in 1929.

The Jack Thompson Classic Bike Trial is run in early December.  Bikes are British and European solos, originally built before 1967 (although most have many more recent ‘bits’ added!).

In addition there are Sidcup Club members’ trails practices at the August Bank Holiday 2-day event. 

Dick Dickenson Trial

The Simmons Cup Trial was the first ‘open’ run by the Sidcup Club in 1929.  It has been held every year since except the years of World War 2.  In 2015, the name of the trial was changed to “The Dick Dickenson Trial for the Simmons Cup”.  Dick Dickenson was the Sidcup Club’s Trials Secretary …

Jack Thompson Trial

Jack Thompson was a Bexleyheath Club member who was a master at building, rebuilding and maintaining British 4-stroke trials bikes of the 1960s.  After he died in 1990, the Sidcup Club decided to name a British Bikes Trial to be held at Canada Heights in his honour.  The trial has taken place each year since …

Sidcup Sixty Trial

We believe that the trial was called the Sidcup Sixty from the days of old when the bikes were road legal and went between sections on road, and you guessed it, the route was 60 miles long.  However, this cannot be verified now as there is nobody in the Sidcup Club left from the 1930’s …
