Time trialling is a very easy way to start racing. No special equipment is needed, just a roadworthy bike. Time trial races are run over set distances (and some over set times) with riders set off individually at one minute intervals. They are timed from start to finish and the times can be compared afterwards or a rider can compare times from week to week over the same course to see if they have improved or not.
Everyone is always welcome (subject to event rules and availability) and each event is a great opportunity to meet and get to know members of the club.
