Sunday 4th August & Sunday 11th August, start time 2pm Woodseaves, Stafford.
Stafford Road Club is again hosting a Come & Give It A Go Time Trials aimed at encouraging new as well more experienced riders into the sport of cycling and Time Trialing. These event have been run for 5 years now and have grown in popularity each year. The course runs between Woodseaves and Great Bridgeford and is 7.9km or 5 miles long and is slightly down hill!
Like the TTs at the Tour De France, riders will set off at 1 minute intervals with time keepers at the start and finish. But do not worry if you are not a member of a cycling club or have never ridden a time trial before, both these event are open to all and can be ridden on any style of bike (mountain, road or hybrid); these events are geared to cater for complete novices to more experienced riders.
So if you want to follow in the footsteps of Chris Froome or Laura Trott this where it all starts. Entry is on the day (£3 per rider) but as these events have in the past proved to be very popular we are taking provisional bookings from anyone who is interested in riding and this helps the organisers know how many riders to cater for.
Signing on will be from 12.30pm in the HQ which is in Great Bridgeford Village Hall. The first rider starts at 2pm but please allow up to 30 minutes to ride from the HQ to the start. The minimum age for entrants is 12 and any rider under the age of 18 must bring with them a signed parental consent form. Refreshments will be available before and after the event in the HQ.
For more information on these two events please contact Alastair on 01785 253 691 and if you would like to make a provisional booking please register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
