Medium Gear 10 mile Time Trial Series

The club will run a series of medium gear 10-mile time trials on Saturdays in February / March. They will run on quiet country lanes, starting opposite the Lime Kiln public house at Cropwell Bishop - Course profile shown below.

Dates and times can be found on the Club Events listing page.  Results will be published in the Classified Results section of the Forum.


The 10 mile Medium Gear Championship is the first competition of the year and is a true test of early season fitness, technique and finesse. They are held on the quiet lanes of the club "sporting" course, starting at the Lime Kiln Inn, Cropwell Bishop. The best three times win the Club trophy.

A medium gear TT is ridden in a 72inch gear (or lower), with no changing allowed. However, you don't have to ride the events as Medium Gear and can use all of your gears if you like but if you do, remember to inform the timekeeper and your time will be recorded as a private time and won't be counted towards the Championship. It's good fun, social and great training for the season ahead. 

£4 per ride.

Results will be published in the forum classified results section here
