This week's club time trial is on the Stony 11.4 mile course. If you are new to the course, please review the course description and risk assessment. Here is the course route - includes download links for GPS enabled computers.

Please note that owing to recently installed traffic-calming measures, we will be using a new start/finish point past the bend after the Calverton junction.  The course will therefore be shorter than previously used. With that exception, the course description and risk assessment remain the same.

Here is the amendment to the published course description. The course is shortened, so the risk assessment and detailed course route should be read with this amendment in mind.

We recommend the use of a rear light, especially in evening events such as this one. You need to be 12 or over to ride time trials. If you are under 18 you will need permission from a parent or guardian to take part (download a permission form in pdf format and in Word format). Each of our courses has a route description and a risk assessment. Make sure you have familiarised yourself with the course!

The event starts at 7.00pm, Wednesday 12th March, and entry is on the line at £3.00 (NBRC members), £5.00 (non-members). Maximum number of riders 30. The meeting point is in the car park by the river, on Calverton Road, near the start by Milford Avenue. 

Results

Rather a windy night, though the rain held off until I was riding home! Several of us had trouble at the turn with traffic on the A421 causing significant hold-ups. The new start point was not satisfactory, and seemed to annoy quite a few motorists, so we'll need to re-think this.
