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.

New Handicap Competition Latest News - (mid April 2014 report)
In the April Monthly Handicap competition, Matthew Charlton is currently leading by virtue of having completed 3 races. But with 2 races still to go, his position is likely to be challenged by a few others who have not yet completed their 3 qualifying races. Dave Triska, as well as doing some very fast times, has shown a good improvement rating, while Helen Wiles (F) has shown a big improvement in her second race. Below that, Simon Hunt, Kelly Miller and Nigel Rigby have shown good early season improvement. Vernon Schutte has shown a big improvement over his first race in the Winter. Giles Short had a good first race, but a disappointing second race.
In the April Monthly Full Points competition, Matthew Charlton has an unassailable lead, by winning all his 3 races. Several are in contention for minor places.
Summer-Season news reports will be added in May.
