My Time Trial Season – 2018

I finally got myself into time trials in 2017 after years of putting it off due to knowing I’d have to invest in a whole set of new kit and a fancy new bike. I started with some club TTs and some of the Open TTs that were easy to get to from my then home of Birmingham. I put off doing time trials longer...

Women’s Time Trialling for Novices – My First Year

The first club time trial My first time trial took place on a cold and murky New Year’s Day 2018. It was the K7/5 between Stafford and Cannock that promised to be ‘downhill overall’ – there’s a lot of this in time trialling. A course promises to be downhill, but it’s invariably the most uphill way to get downhill! A splash of tinsel on the...

VTTA Open TT April 2018 – K48/10

The third Open TT of my 2018 season took place last weekend. Hosted by the VTTA, it used the K48/10 circuit which I’d raced on a year ago in another Open TT.

Stratford Open TT April 2018 – K33/10D

Having had chance to set the seat to something close to the right height and riding a course that I rode last year on my...

Coalville Wheelers Open TT Feb 2018 – A10/34

  After starting my time trial season on New Year’s Day in Stafford this was my next opportunity to whet my time trial appetite. For the first time I’ve now got a proper time trial bike, a disc wheel, decent skinsuit, a non-second hand helmet and was looking forward to getting out there and seeing what difference they made. Coalville’s A10/34 Time Trial Circuit The first...

Stafford Road Club New Year Time Trial

Happy new year! On the first day of 2018, Stafford Road Club ran their annual New Year’s Day club time trial. I’ve recently moved up that way and after all the snow and ice, I’ve not really been out with my new club that much. Having a blast in a time trial seemed a good way to get my face known! It was also a...
