This week's time trial will be on the Astwood course with the HQ based at the Bike Bus cafe on Wednesday 3rd May, starting at 7 am. We will use the BikeBus cafe for sign on and for refreshments after the event. Entry is £3.00 (members) and £5.00 (non-members).

All are welcome: make sure you turn up in time to sign on. You'll need a mechanically sound bike and a bike helmet. We recommend the use of a rear light. You need to be 12 or over to ride time trials; if you are over 12 but 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). The course has a route description and a risk assessment. Make sure you have familiarised yourself with the course, and remember that time trials are held on open roads - take care and be observant of other road users!

For riders new to time trialling, here's a brief introduction to time trials.  

Results

 

 What has happened to warm spring weather? Thirteen riders turned out on a blustery and cold evening for this time trial on the Astwood circuit. Actually, the quite a strong and gusty wind didn't seem too tough once out there on the course. We also reverted to the old start in Astwood.

Once again, Barry Connolly took the honours, with first NBRC rider being Tim Bailey.
