TUESDAY TIME TRIALS (APR - AUG)
Meet 18:30 for the routes marked on the calendar below.
A Cycling Time Trial is simply a test of yourself against the stopwatch, and is often called 'the race of truth'.
Riders set off on their own, usually at minute intervals, counted down by a timekeeper.
Your aim is to ride the set course in the fastest time you can, trying to pace your efforts over the distance.You may find yourself overtaken, similarly you may overtake others. You mustn't shelter in a competitor's slipstream & risk disqualification.
Time trials are a great way to measure fitness improvement, as you do more and more.Anyone can participate in time trials, young/ old, fast/ slow, experienced or new to the sport. Any roadworthy bike is suitable, road bikes are common. You do not need a specific Time Trial bike to participate, but being aerodynamic is part of it.
First and foremost, you're racing against yourself so it doesn't matter what time anyone else got.
