Road Bike Series 10 Mile Club TT
Date: Sunday 3 Mar 2019
Sign on in School Road near Fawley Infants School just off the B3053.
This is a “club” event which means it is open to anyone. Sotonia members ride for free and are given priority when signing on. For everyone else the entry fee is £4.
The starting time is 10:00 am but make sure you arrive at the HQ in plenty of time to sign on and collect your number.
If you are thinking about taking part in a time trial for the first time you may find Time Trialling for Beginners a useful guide.
Competitors are strongly advised to wear a helmet that meets an international safety standard during this event. All riders under the age of 18 must wear a properly affixed helmet which must be of hard/soft shell construction and should conform to a recognised standard.
Your bike must be fitted with a working rear light either flashing or constant.
This is a road bike time trial. You can ride the event on a TT bike, but although you will be given a time you will not be given a ranking in the event. Road Bike rules are very simple – no aero or tri bars, no tri spokes or disc wheel, no aero helmet. Basically you need to ride the same equipment as if you are in a road race. Deep section wheels, skin suits, shoe covers and that sort of thing are all fine.
