The WCC TT events are open to all members and other invited local clubs. In fact we’d love to see anyone, who is new to time trialling, come along and give it a go. It doesn’t matter what your speed is, you can test yourself against the clock and try to improve your times during the season. See "How do I sign up" section below.
If you wish to keep your time secret, e-mail
email@example.com when you enter. You will still receive your official time, but it will not be published anywhere.
In Cycling Time Trials safety is paramount: “When time trial courses are designed, safety is a major consideration. However, a competitor’s safety remains entirely his or her own responsibility. Events are held on open roads, and competitors must obey the relevant laws and the Highway Code before, during and after a race. Competitors must avoid creating situations that are unsafe for other road users.”
All participants (members and non-members) in the WCC TTs will need to sign up for a WCC Time Trial Membership. This is free. Sign up here (If this link doesn't work for you, go directly into TeamUp to sign up):
Please note that the TT events will not appear in your TeamUp calendar if you do not have TT membership.
Once you have your TT membership you can sign up to each event by clicking on the event date at the top of this page. The cost is £3.50 per event. Events open 14 days, and close 24 hours, before the event start time.
If you wish to enter in the tandem category, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of your co-rider.
If you wish to enter in the two-up category, both riders will need to sign up and pay, then one will need to e-mail email@example.com to ask us to link you.
If you are unable to attend any TT that you have entered, please cancel your place. No refund will be given.
The system can only hold one bike category per rider. If you want to ride in more than one category, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
In the event of a cancellation communications will be posted on the Wokingham Cycling Club website; on the public and members Facebook page; sent by e-mail to all entrants.
The route is officially called HCC234. The route is not signed, so we would advise memorising or loading it on your GPS device.

There will be competitions held for each individual event and across the series. All competitions, with the exception of most improved rider, will be split based into female and male. Transgender athletes are welcome as per the CTT Transgender Policy:
To encourage inclusivity, “Merckx” rules is for standard road bikes and equipment not specifically made for time trials. Therefore, none of the following is permitted in “Merckx” rules:
The “Aero” category.
For anyone in pursuit of a personal best wishing to make aero gains!
Each Time Trial will have a winner based on the shortest elapsed time in the Merckx and Aero categories by gender.
There are two series competitions.
This will be measured as the improvement between the first and subsequent times of a rider of either gender in the same category.
*The Time Trial team reserve the right to review and exclude times to remove the effect of any ‘mechanicals’ such as punctures.
These will be the rider with the fastest time, by category and gender.
