Lots of our members take part in Cycling Time Trials. More details on certain events are available via our calendar app which is provided on joining us.
The club is affiliated to the CTT, some members will never have raced a Time Trial so here is how to enter: Go to the website : http://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/
On the Events drop down, go to Events list
Here you need to filter by district, we are in the Manchester suffix J
There are open and club events to enter, most open events have to be entered 2 weeks prior, club events can be pay on the night. Note most open events are weekend, most club events are evening.
Races are generally 10/25/50/100M events, a lot of the 10/25events are run from the Chelford area.
You will see the courses are coded, this harks back to the days when TT’s were secret and hidden from the police. If we take J2/3 as an example, click on the course and it will tell you the HQ and the route, a google search of J2/3 will show you the course : http://www.mapmyride.com/sc/victoria-english-river/j2-3-10-mile-tt-course-route-5688191
There is an excellent Beginners dropdown on the CTT website: http://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/Beginners
Manchester CTT website is here: http://www.manchesterctt.org.uk/
Like the GoTri series there are also ‘Come & Try it’ events available.
