UPDATE (17/3/17, 5pm): We note cones were placed at two of the roundabouts on this course earlier this week. We have inspected the course on Friday afternoon and it appears to be clear: we will of course check the situation before the event starts, but at this time we are confident the event will go ahead as planned. Keep an eye on this website and Facebook page for updates.

This morning's event is our first in the 2017 TT League to be held on the Stoke Hammond 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 many GPS enabled computers.

All are welcome at our club time trials: 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, especially in evening events. 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 9.00am, and entry is on the line at £3.00 (NBRC members), £5.00 (non-members).

This is the provisional calendar of NBRC club TTs for 2017. 

We expect to have the Astwood and Stagsden courses available again this year, after last year's disruption due to the weak bridge [update 10-Jan-17 - bridge repair has been completed].

A column for sign placers for each event has been added. This will be populated by volunteers or conscripts. Those placing signs should review the CTT Guidance Note on Sign Placement, and take all sensible precautions and wear hi-vis jackets. Course Descriptions and Risk Assessments can be seen via the Course Description page (these documents will also be linked from each event notification page). Risk Assessments list required locations for warning signs.
