Time Trials

Club time trial series and club championships details here

The dates for the forthcoming time trial season in South Wales are available on the CTT South Wales District Website and information on the courses is available on there too.

The main local time trials are in the calendar above going from the PTW 2-up in March to the Triple Hill Climb in October. If there's any I've missed, or any you think other club members would be interested in riding, let me know and I'll add them to the calendar.

CTT Handbooks

These are essential for anyone even toying with the idea of entering some organsied events this season - it is difficult to get name s and addresses of organisers in other way, and the majority of events still rely on snail mail and cheques.
