This week's time trial will be a 20 mile event covering two laps of the Astwood course, starting at 7.15pm. 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!

Download the latest Course Description and Risk Assessment (pdf) - please note we will be using the version of the course starting and finishing in Astwood village itself (meeting point near the junction of Astwood High St and the A422) - apart from this, the course description and risk assessment are correct.

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

Results

 

A lovely summer's evening with a light breeze saw 18 riders take on the two laps of Astwood for this evening event. For my part, it was good to help out with the start - and especially enjoyable to see others work hard. Congratulations to Leigh for the win, and to Nathan and Andy for the tied 8th place for first placed NBRC rider! 

Commiserations to our p******e victim this evening.
