Time Trials

Time trialling is the simplest of competitive formats: a race against the clock, with riders starting a minute apart. It’s known as the ‘race of truth’ because there’s nowhere to hide, no one to draft behind; just you and the bike and the thumping of your heart. Oh, and a clock ticking.

Most events are fixed distance, being 10, 25, 50 or 100 miles. There are also fixed time events -12 and 24 hours -with the objective being to ride the furthest you can. Our Events are held on the cycle circuit at the Northern Gateway Sports Park and on the public roads around North Essex and are either ‘out and back’, using a roundabout to turn halfway, or circuits with consecutive left turns. You can take part on any roadworthy bike except a recumbent.

Normally you need to be a member of a Cycling Time Trials-affiliated cycling club, but all Rovers events will be designated as Come and Try It events. and we welcome guests along to see what its all about and experience riding against the clock.
