Time Trialling

Time Trials are ridden as a test against the clock … and yourself (and hence the term ‘testers’ is often applied.) They can vary in distance (usually starting at 10 miles, but sometimes less) and with many different courses to choose from (particularly here at New Forest CC) the rider can expect some varied and undulating challenges.

New Forest CC encourages non-members to ‘come & try it’ and at £3 to compete you’ve lost nothing in dipping your toe into the sport.

For those already competing, it’s always worth getting clarification on the odd ‘nuance’ here and there .. and one common misunderstanding is the difference between a ‘Club’ event and an ‘Open’ event. In essence, anyone can ride a Club event and some of these events may form part of a wider club competition or series. An ‘Open’ event costs a little more to enter and requires an official entry form to be completed and submitted a couple of weeks in advance – and you must be a fully paid up member of a cycling club. Open events can be hosted by any club and New Forest CC host some too … taking place on 1 of our registered courses (P303, P311 etc)

If you need help in entering an Open event (because it can be a bit confusing first time) please ask a member of the club.

Finally … did you know .. the course numbers you race on actually mean something ..the 100’s are centred around Lyndhurst .. the 300’s around Ringwood .. and so on.

As a club, we encourage all riders to wear a helmet, although it is only compulsory for riders Under 18.   We also require all riders to use a rear light during our time trials.
