Time Trials

Due to roadworks on the A38 which directly affect U7B and indirectly affect UC184 the Committee have decided to cancel time trials until they are completed on 12 August. This means we cannot run our Club Time Trials as planned. The updated schedule is below. This will be updated if the situation changes.

If the Coronavirus situation changes Cycling Time Trials will update their own newsfeed here with their advice.

Since January 2020 CTT have made a working, red rear light mandatory for all entrants to time trials under their jurisdiction. No light, no ride.

Every year Dursley Road Club run a club time trial series. This is held every Thursday starting with a short course Prologue at the end of March/early April and running until late August/early September. The season is brought to a close with a couple of hill climbs.

The schedule and results are published below. Any queries can be directed to the Time Trials Secretary.

Details of Time Trial Routes

Route U7B sign-on is in the entrance to the road named Chapel Hill (see pin in map). The actual start-line is a quarter of a mile south on the A38 at the bus-stop. Route travels North to the Slimbridge roundabout and then back. Finish line is opposite the sign-on location. Total course 10 miles.

The short course version of U7B starts from the lay-by a little South from the Berkeley Heath Road turning on the A38. Same as U7B to the Slimbridge roundabout and back. Total course length 6.8 miles.

UC184 is a circuit route. It begins at Cattle Country in Berkeley and riders go down the B4066 towards the A38. Turn left and carry on until the left turn to Purton, Breadstone, and follow the road ahead. Take the next left onto Station Road (junction opposite The Salmon pub) and follow the road ahead to the roundabout. Take the first exit onto the Berkeley by-pass to the second roundabout. Then take the first exit back onto the B4066 back towards Cattle Country. Repeat this once more to complete the TT.
