The club has a very full Time Trials (TT) schedule in both open and club categories attracting riders from across the South East. Club events are open to all riders including non members, whilst open events are for riders from all CTT affiliated clubs.
Riding a TT is often a first step into competitive road cycling. Competitors (individuals or teams) set off at intervals and are timed over a fixed distance course. A time trial can be a test of a rider’s ability to beat earlier personal best whilst also being a race in which riders compare their performances to others. There are few tactics; in a time trial you ride against the watch – with no one to slipstream or set the pace. A special bike is not essential.
For club events you can just turn-up, pay your entry fee (£2 for members - £3 for non-members) and ride. Open events have to be booked in advance.

Holmes and Watson in hot pursuit
"The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist" was a Sherlock Holmes story set just six miles from Farnham in Surrey, and Holmes and Watson were spotted in "hot pursuit" in the same area this weekend!
Fifty riders took part in the annual Farnborough and Camberley Cycling Club (FCCC) Christmas Time Trial this Sunday. Riding 10 miles from Bentley and back in times from 21 to 45 minutes.
The winner was Justyn Cannon of the RAF Cycling Association who completed the course in 21 minutes and 43 seconds, but the fancy dress prize went to John Allen and David Eccles of Redmon CC who competed as Sherlock and Watson - and managed 2nd place in the Tandem class with a time of 26 minutes 45 seconds.
