For the 2017 season we're working with Clifton CC to run the Thursday Evening Time Trial Series. The series comprises of 11 events spread across Thursday evenings through the summer. These events are open to all Clifton CC club members are well as members of invited clubs and are promoted and run under the Rules & Regulations of Cycling Time Trials (CTT).
The Time Trials will all start at 7.30pm with entry on the line only, so allow yourself plenty of time to arrive, get signed on, warm up etc. Each event will be £5 for seniors and £2 for under 18's. As the series is only open to Clifton CC members and other invited clubs, you may be asked to show your membership club when signing on. Under 18's must complete a Parental Consent Form before the start of their first event but that will last for the entire series.
All enquiries about the events should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org

Just one or two other bits...
We recommend that all riders wear a helmet but under 18's MUST wear a helmet in all CTT events and the minimum age is 12 (under 13's must be accompanied to the event).
Riders are encouraged to display a red rear light, we suggest the Bontrager Flare R, during events. These weigh very little but greatly improve your safety.
All of these events are run on sporting courses (Spoco's) and some feature some technical elements. These can be steep descents, right turns, sharp corners and poor road surfaces. We suggest that you try and familiarise yourself with the course before racing on it. Similarly, these events are run on public highways and all the normal rules of the roads apply.
Race marshal's are only in place to make sure you go the right way. They CANNOT stop, warn or direct traffic for you. You must ensure that it is safe to proceed and, if needs be, stop at a junction. Don't take risks!
Competitors must ride entirely alone and unassisted. You cannot take shelter in another riders slipstream. If you catch a rider, you must carefully overtake making sure that you do not ride in their slipstream at any point. Likewise, if you are overtaken, even if that means dropping back a little.
Awareness of your surroundings: the 'tuck' or 'head down' riding position is band are are earphones/headphones/audio equipment during the race (except hearing aids). You must be able to see the road in front of you at all times.
You can ride type of bike except recumbent as long as it is roadworthy.
