Come & Try It Time Trial
Come and Try it - 10 mile Time Trial - 29th July 2015 - Helpston.
Well unfortunately we had to make do with a reduced course of around 7 miles once again this week, due to the ongoing roadworks. It was great to see plenty of new faces come along and try a time trial, despite the heavy shower that was in store for most of the riders. The hilltop finish is also quite a challenge, even if its not quite Alpe D'Huez, its still hard enough at the end of a time trial. So well done to all riders, especially the newcomers, hopefullly you might fancy trying one another week, it would be great to see you all again. At the front of the field it was a first win for Tom Stokes in 16.22 to edge out Steve Kaye by just two seconds.
We are once again organising a come & try it time trial to encourage newcomers to come along and test themselves over our ten mile course around Helpston. This is open to all cyclists aged 12 or over, with non-members very welcome, so if you are up for the challenge get along and be part of it.
If you have any questions please contact either Steve or Malc via the contacts page.
The course will be signed and marshalled.
