Time trialing is the simplest of the competitive forms of cycling: a race against the clock, with riders starting a minute apart. It’s known as the ‘Race of Truth’ because there’s nowhere to hide, no one to draft behind; just you and the bike and the thumping of your heart. Oh, and a clock ticking. Find out more about time trialing…

*** Please note: A new rule has come into force stating all bikes must be fitted with and have a working FRONT as well as REAR light.  Plus all riders must wear an approved helmet ***

All of the club events listed below are run as ‘Come and Give it a Go’ events which means that anyone can turn up and ride so long as their bike is roadworthy and safe, and wear a helmet. Minimum age is 12 years and riders under 18 must bring with them a signed parental consent form LINK . For the fee of £5.00  you can attend any of the club events listed below, come along and give it a go, you may get hooked.  SRC riders will get one free for every 5 they ride.
