How to Start Time Trialing
TT'ing is an easy way to get into racing. No bunch to keep up with, and no danger of being dropped! The beauty of time trialling is that the rider sets their own standard and then measures their effort over the course on the given day.
To get started, you don't need a fancy bike - just turn up on your normal road bike to one of our regular Thursday evening club events during the summer where you can enter.. You'll be given a number, told your start time and then all you have to do is ride round the course in the shortest time you can!
Yes there will be people dressed up with their aero bikes, helmets and equipment but remember each person is competing against their own standards and expectations.
Sign-up for the TT's must be before 6:25 pm for the shorter events (5, 10, 15, 20km) and before 6:15 pm for the 40km events. Road marshals should also be there by 6:15pm. This will ensure that the events start on time. All riders must attend at least one of the “Safety briefings” and sign the briefing waiver (Participant Sign-off Form) to acknowledge that they understand the rules and are prepared to adhere to the rules. Each rider will confirm that they understand the “Safety Talk” prior to starting. These safety briefing will be given to all new participants prior to every race.

Your placement will be based the average speed for your best 100 kms. Awards will be based on the lowest cumulative times for male and female in each category.
We have been unable to find an appropriate 40 km course this year. The 40 Over 40 Race is a time handicapped event over 40 kms. Riders of all ages may participate. Those riders over the age of 40 receive time bonuses of 2 seconds per month and prizes will be awarded based on those adjusted times. Unadjusted times from this event may be used as a 32 km TT.
