Our 25-mile Time Trial is an ‘Open’ event – this means you need to be a member of a cycling club affiliated to Cycling Time Trials (CTT) – if you want to enter the event but are not a member of a cycling club you could always join us! You could also give our ‘Come & Try It’ Summer Time Trial Series a go! If you just want to spectate and give vocal support you are more than welcome – please just turn up on the day. If you want to take photos for our club website or help marshal please contact our club event promoter.

What is a Time Trial?

It is a timed event over a measured course. Time Trials are usually held on flat courses over standard distances (10, 25, 50 miles). Riders are held at the start and set off at one-minute intervals – the aim is to give it your maximum lung-busting effort! The winner is the rider who records the shortest time – even if you finish many minutes behind the winner you’ll still have the satisfaction of recording a personal best time!

The course


Bike route 850239 – powered by Bikemap

Our course is well known and used by other cycling clubs for their own ‘Open’ event. It is a 16-mile loop encircling the Jodrell Bank Observatory – you do 1½ circuits to complete a standard 25-mile distance. There is less than 100 ft of climbing over the whole course so it is possible to do a fast time – anything under 1 hour is very quick!

Where is it?

The course is on the Cheshire Plains and the event venue is usually in Goostrey – it is one of the nearest flat courses but it is still a 30-mile drive or cycle from Glossop! There will be parking and toilet facilities available at the venue – please check the front page of our club website nearer the time for details. The start-line is near the Jodrell Bank Observatory – a 1.5-mile cycle from Goostrey – please study the course map for directions.

 

What do I need?

Your can use any type of bike but most riders use specific time trial bikes or standard/aero road bikes with or without tri-bars. You will need to wear a helmet and we recommend you use a rear light. You don’t need to worry about your fitness level – just give it your best effort and you’ll have a personal best time to aim for next time!

How do I enter?

Our event is usually held on a Saturday afternoon in April – check the front page of our club website nearer the time for details or visit the CTT website for information about other ‘Open’ and ‘Come & Try It’ events. You can also purchase the CTT handbook on-line – please visit http://cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/Shop/tabid/367/Default.aspx

Our event is designated J2/9 – this is an event code and a legacy from the time when Time Trials on public roads were done in secrecy. You will need to enter 2 weeks before the event date so don’t leave it too late to avoid disappointment – entries are not allowed on the day.

The cost in 2015 will be £8.00. You will be informed of your start-time before the event day – come along 60 minutes before to give yourself plenty of time to sign in, attach your number to the back of your jersey and right shirt sleeve, and cycle to the start-line. You need to be 12 or over to enter and if you are under 18 one of your parents will need to sign a consent form.

Extras!

Everyone congregates at the event venue to recover, have a chat and some refreshments. You will be told the official results by the time-keepers on the day – these will also be posted on our Yahoo Group, club website, CTT website and published in Cycling Weekly. There may also be photos available to download free of charge after the event! There will be prizes for the fastest senior, veteran and junior riders.

There will also be awards for the fastest club riders presented at our annual dinner!

Safety issues

There will be warning signs for motorists and marshals stationed at the start-line, road junctions, roundabouts and finish-line. Riders must exercise care at all times. All riders are responsible for their own safety and you must obey the Highway Code. You must be prepared to stop at road junctions and the entry to roundabouts if it is not safe to proceed. Do not cross the white line. A helmet and rear light is recommended. You must look ahead and don’t ride with your head down. You must not take pace or shelter from any other vehicle or competitor – more to the point, be prepared for lots of riders to pass you en route – it’s a fast course and attracts fast riders!
