Time Trials

Traditionally this was the main focus of the adult section of the club and it still forms an important part. Regular time trials are run on Tuesday nights through Summer as well as open events through the year. Open to youth riders aged 12 and above to adults, this is where you13415615_1108211899251447_9063422755502960704_o-copy race against yourself.

We are also part of the Corsa Rosa TT League. This is a local inter-club TT league where you can only use road bikes, no specialist bikes or helmets etc.
