Time Trials

Since December 2021 CTT has made a working front light and helmet mandatory for all participants in Time Trials. This is in addition to a working rear light which was mandated in January 2020. If you do not have these on your bike or person at the start of the TT you cannot ride.

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

Please note we no longer accept cash payments. Please be prepared to pay with a contactless card or with PayPal. Fees are £3.50 for DRC members, £5 for CTT-affilliated clubs members, and £6 for no CTT affilliation (temporary membership fee included.)

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