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.

2016 05 19 Thursday Club Time Trial
The course for this time trial is not currently usable due to road works with traffic control lights. It certainly looks as if they will be in place for a considerable period of time.
The weather forecast for the event is not brilliant either.
This week's TT is therefore cancelled.
Next week we are on HCC255b.
