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…

Stafford RC is hosting a smaller calendar of events this year, but all will have a category for road bikes alongside the traditional time trial bikes. Please remember that we can only run such a large number of events thanks to the support of its members, family and friends who come along to volunteer. So please make yourself available for one or two events this year Volunteers List – LINK
