We run a Thursday evening time trial from the end of April to the end of August. We use the 11.2 mile Abbotsley circuit that runs through Abbotsley and skirts Gamlingay. We start at the T-Junction to Croxton 1/2 mile east of Abbotsley.
A time trial is a timed ride where you are competing against yourself as well as other riders. Riders are started at one minute intervals and you basically ride as fast as you can round the course, on your own, without drafting other riders.
There is no need to enter in advance - you can just turn up and ride. You don't need a special TT bike - any road bike will do. Entry for club members is £2 per event and the entry fee for members of other clubs is £4. If you’re new to time trialling and just fancy a go, feel free to come along and we’ll run you through the basics. If you don't belong to a cycling club, you can ride one sample time trial, called "Come and Try", but you must join a club to ride more.
It's an excellent addition to your training and overall cycling enjoyment.
