About

 

This year’s club confined Time Trial Series is being organised jointly by Emily Holl and Brenda Callander. They are posting up early so as to make sure that everyone who wants to ride gets an opportunity to ‘save the date’.

Dates for your diaries are:

Round 1: Wed 24th April - 5 mile TT. Start at the Kippen roundabout. The finish line is on the A811 just after the Touch Road junction.

First rider off at 7.01 pm on all rounds.

Entry is free and open to all club members aged 12 and over. No upper age limit!  No experience is required and members are encouraged to give it a go! More details will be posted in the run up to each event. Points are awarded for placings in each event  and then added up at the end of the series to determine the overall winner. 10 points for a win, down to 1 point for 10th. There are eight categories: Senior male and female, junior male and female. THIS YEAR WE ARE TRIALLING RUNNING BOTH A NON AERO AND AN AERO SERIES in tandem ( tandems welcome btw) with points allocated separate to the non-aero series, hence the eight categories.

Due to a change of insurance from British Cycling to Cycle Time Trials WE ARE ABLE TO OFFER THE OPPORTUNITY FOR BOTH FIRST AND SECOND CLAIM CLUB MEMBERS TO JOIN IN FOR THE FIRST TIME. Depending on the level of interest, the club may support this again. The insurance is more expensive so come along all second claim club members and make it count

To encourage members into Time Trialing, rules and equipment for rounds 1 through 4 are :-

No TT bikes - Road bikes only

No Clip-on aero bars

No disc wheels (deep section up to 60mm are allowed)

No pointy hats (aero road helmets are allowed)
