What are the TT Rules?

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.”

What are the communications if a ride is cancelled?

In the event of a cancellation communications will be posted on the public and members Facebook page and sent by e-mail to all entrants.

What is the route?

The route is officially called HCC234. The route is not signed, so we would advise memorising or loading it on your GPS device.

You can also download the route from the CTT webpage and see the course records, HERE

What is the gender split?

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:
