Charlbury Open Time Trial
Our first open event of the season is the Charlbury TT, and this year’s event will be on Sunday 7th April 2019. The race is on a 36 mile course taking in two laps of a rolling circuit in the Cotswolds countryside.
The event offers something very different to the pan flat, out-and-back courses that are the staple of the TT calendar. Its rolling nature means that its well suited to tackling on an ordinary road bike, and this year we will be incorporating a road bike division (with prizes!) within the main event.
Even if you’ve never ridden a TT before, this is a great opportunity to pin a number on your back and take part in a race.
Road bike rules
To qualify for the road bike division, please follow these rules:
- No aero bars (not even those funny little triathlon ones)
- No disc or tri-spoke wheels
- Maximum 60mm for deep section wheels
- TT helmets are not permitted (nothing with a visor or a pointy bit at the back)
- Aero road helmets are permitted.
If in doubt, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is an open time trial so pre-entry is required. You can enter via the CTT website. Entries will close on 26th March.
If you want a taster of the course, we are running a club event on one lap of the same course on Sunday 24th March. You can find more information on entering our club events on our time trial page.
