About The Scottish Six Days Trial
- Hits: 720
The Scottish Six Days Trial itself always runs from Monday to Saturday, starting on the first Monday in May, which is always the May Day Bank Holiday in the UK. If you know the date of the May Bank Holiday then you know when the SSDT is!
However there's loads more to see and do before that. The Trials action kicks off in Lochaber on the Friday before the SSDT with the two-day Pre '65 trial taking place, based in the small town of Kinlochleven near to Fort William. Then there is the buzz of the SSDT paddock on Sunday with the annual "weigh-in" of the competitor's bikes before the traditional parade of riders down Fort William High Street in the afternoon. If you want to get away from Trials for a while or you have family with other interests, there are all sorts of other things to do and see in the area!
