*What are time trials?
time trial is a road bicycle event in which cyclists compete alone against the
clock. Time trials are NOT a competition between riders but are used by an
individual to compare their times and measure progress. Great for
training, Time trials are also referred to as "the race of truth", as
performance depends only on each rider's strength and endurance, and not on
the help provided by team-mates and others riding ahead creating a
slipstream for drafting. These are excellent tools for
beginning cyclists as you can compare times to mark improvement.
Starting times are at equal intervals, usually one or two minutes apart.
There is no pre-registration, just show up!
