Clubs in the area hold a season long series of open time trials run under the rules of Cycling Time Trials, in which club members can participate. The Cycling Time Trials website has an Events Page that you can use to find full information on up coming events in the area.
In previous years the club has organised a number of Time Trial events. In May 2018 we hosted a 10 mile event on the M101 course and also an 18 mile event on the M18 course in September. Unfortunately we will not be hosting any events in 2019, but this will be reviewed for 2020.
We are fortunate that another local club, Barnesbury CC, run a series of 10 miles time trials between April and July a Wednesday evening using the M102B course which starts close to the Cramlington Ford garage.
The event is very friendly and is suitable for absolute novices who have never time trialled before, up to experience riders who wish to challenge themselves. You don’t need a specialist time trial event or other equipment – just turn up with your standard road bike.
The event is open to Cramlington CC members, with registration opening at about 6:30, with a charge of £4 per race.
If you attend regularly then you will be expected to help out and occasionally marshall.
The details of the 2019 series has not been published yet, but you can find details of the Barnesbury 10 Mile TT 2018 series on the Barnesbury website.
