Want to join in with TREC but have no transport? Work weekends? Can’t get childcare? Now you can! Build one (or more!) of the courses below at home, get someone to film you riding it, and upload your video anywhere it can be shared eg facebook, dropbox, youtube. Send me the link to firstname.lastname@example.org or facebook messenger, and I’ll reply with payment details when I’ve checked that I can see the video. I will send your score & feedback within 7 days of payment. Submitting your video is confirming you agree with the rules.

All courses will remain open for submissions permanently – if you want to get together a group of friends, or set challenges for yourself, however you want to do it you can send videos to Evie for feedback & scores.
All entries submitted up to 30 April 2018 (extended due to the awful March weather) will go into a league, with the three best scores for each combination being added together to find an overall winter winner, as well as prizes being awarded for the best scores on each course (subject to entries). Rosettes & prizes will be posted out to the top combinations.
