Add a new dimension to your cycling

Novice 10-mile Time Trials: Saturday 25 March & Wednesday 19 April 2023.

Taking part in a cycling time trial is a great way to improve your cycling fitness, boost your motivation and break up the routine of club riding.

There is nothing to be nervous about – you’re riding against yourself

In a Time Trial, it doesn’t matter whether you are the fastest or slowest person on the day. Nor does your fitness level, age or gender. It’s just you – against yourself.

All you need is a bike … any bike, and the curiosity to find out what you can achieve and whether you can improve next time. It’s all over in a flash. And when you get your breath back and your body is swimming with endorphins, you will have the satisfaction of having ridden at 100% of your capacity and learned where your limits are. Something to josh about with your fellow riders as you head towards the post-event cake table. It could add a whole new dimension to your cycling.

So, what are you waiting for?

Our 2023 season starts this month and we have a designated 10 mile ‘novice’ event on Saturday 25 March at 14.30. It’s a straight and relatively traffic-free course, so great for beginners. If you can’t make it, we have another beginners’ event on the evening of Wednesday 19 April at 18.30.

"I guess I was a little nervous before my first TT but I need not have worried. The marshals were all friendly faces and we were all smiling at the end. I entered a few events in 2022, it was a really good way to benchmark my cycling fitness but more than that I found my club cycling benefitted from those few faster rides. Give it a go! "
