Time trials are an excellent way of sharpening up your cycling and developing your bike power - it's just you and the road, no drafting, and no worrying about running off the bike. We are members of the West London Combine, which is a series of club-run time trials over 10, 25 and 50 miles, all over the same course near Great Missenden in Bucks, with the target for the top guns always being to beat 24mins/ 1 hour/ 2 hours respectively.
While the racing is hard, the organisation is very laid back - tell Phil you're going to race, turn up in time to sign your name, pin on a number, warm up, then off you go... as quick as you can. Then there's tea & cake waiting at the finish. All for only £2 entry fee!
There are also usually 3 time trials organised by London Dynamo in Richmond Park in the summer over 10.5 miles, which again are a great way of charting fitness & speed over the season or year on year. Watch the forum for news of dates.
We will announce details of any other interesting/ convenient TTs that could appeal to members so if you are entering any and want company, let Phil know or put it on the forum.
