Time Trials 2020

Our time trial league is run in conjunction with Clifton Cycling Club.  It is a series of 18 events run on Thursday and Tuesday evenings at 7:30pm. Clifton Cycling Club organise the majority of the events as a club league under the rules and regulations of the CTT.

There are three new courses this year one hilly from Crayke to Yearsley and the other two on the A168 near Boroughbridge.

YCW organise two flat 10m events in Wheldrake, plus a further four events in August that are not included in the league.  British Cycling members of YCW are welcome to take part at all the events, as are members of  Clifton Cycling Club, York Triathlon and Malton Wheelers.  You simply turn up, put your name on the starting list and pay your £5.

There are a few rules we ask you to follow.  No drafting.  Obey the rules of the road - marshalls are only there to point you in the right direction.  Finally, save one last breath to SHOUT out your number as you cross the finish line - this greatly helps the timekeepers.

*** New CTT regulation - you will not be able to start without a working red rear light ***

What can you expect?

  • Marshalls at every junction
  • Timekeepers
  • Pusher offs
  • Riders go off at 1m intervals - it's you against the clock

This course is just short of 10 miles for safety reasons. It starts and ends at the layby at Sheriff Hutton Bridge (a mile south of Sheriff Hutton). The course is flat and fast. With left-hand turns only this is a relatively easy course to navigate but there are two T-junctions where visibility is not great if you are travelling at speed. Don't forget the marshalls are not there to tell you if it is safe, it is your responsibility to follow the rules of the road and give way if necessary.

Volunteering

We need people to organise events, time keep and help out on the night with marshalling, pushing off etc. It's not too early to volunteer - the events can't go ahead without you! Volunteer organisers will receive a £25 donation for each event organised. The timekeepers will receive a donation of £10 per event. Volunteers who have not officiated and who may be apprehensive will be supported by experienced organisers, marshals etc., who will act as "buddys". Getting involved is a great way to support the Club.

If you are willing to organise or assist at an event, please contact the shop or Clifton Cycling Club.
