Time trialling is often the first and easiest way into racing bikes on the road in the UK.
Benefits of time trialling include a big improvement in your fitness, an introduction to com-petition for less confident riders, and a way to measure your absolute ability against both other riders and yourself. As they say, it's the 'race of truth', with nowhere to hide!
The discipline has a long and often obscure history, which means that some of the rules and regulations it's held under often seem impenetrable and frustrating for novices. To help overcome that, a more detailed explanation of time trialling may be found in our downloadable 'Time Trialling for Beginners'; document. As a section of cycling sport it does not market itself well, so if youre new to it, please persevere it'll be worth it in the long run!
We regularly hold local events for members of our Club and members of other Clubs that are affiliated to the Road Time Trials Council, the national organisation behind this aspect of cycling. Our Racing Calendar, which may also be downloaded, shows all of the information that you will need to find any of our events. Our racing courses are also displayed here.
