Time trialling

On a bit of a whim, I’ve signed up for my club TT season. A tenner sees me get a number that allows me to enter the
weekly evening 10 miler, as well as occasional weekend 10’s and a few more events.

On Monday I attended a club night aimed at providing an intro to the world of time trials. There was lots of talk about bikes, helmets, skin suits, clip on bars and more, as well as information about the course (which is on a road I’ve ridden a couple of times) I’ll be using my normal road bike, helmet and clothing.

My only goal is to try and see if I can get below 30 minutes for a 10 mile TT, which of course means a 20mph average speed. I’m confident I will, if maybe not first time out. Time will tell if I get the bug, in which case I guess there will be yet more reason to get the credit card out…
