Rhos-on-Sea Cycling Club hosts a series of Time Trials every year. Our Time Trials are designed to encourage novices and seasoned riders and are open to all clubs to race in the series.
Time Trials are a great way of improving your cycling speed and the friendly, competitive atmosphere really makes it a lot of fun too. All rules & sign-on locations are listed below the time trials list.
Rhos also participates in inter-club TT events such as the Gwynedd Cycling Association
Covid restrictions have relaxed slightly. We are now allowed up to 50 people at a ‘gathering’ so that will usually be up to 48 riders and 2 x timekeepers. Riders can turn up and sign on. We still operate within Covid guidelines: Appropriate social distancing at all times; no pusher; numbers are washed between events. PLEASE NOTE: THE SIGN-ON VENUE for the VALLEY 10 HAS CHANGED, and is now Bodnant Gardens National Trust car park, LL28 5RE. Location for the 15 mile course is as before, in Llanrwst.
The Rhos on Sea CC TT events for 2021 are listed in the table below. Payment is at sign-on, using contactless card (mobile signal permitting) or the correct cash. Further updates will be provided here on the webpage and on Facebook.
We are working to provide events for women, designed by women. Want to contribute? We’d love to hear your ideas. Email email@example.com or Message me on Facebook.
Non-club members are welcome to join our TT events too. You can test and try twice, after which you need to make sure you become a member of Rhos, or a member of any other CTT affiliated Club. We hope you consider joining the club.
Rhos on Sea CC are committed to inclusion and diversity. The club encourages participation by all groups in competitive and social events. All Club events recognise and distribute rewards equally between competitors.
Please note: It is now a CTT rule for all competitors to have a working rear red light. Rhos also strongly recommends a working bright front light. Please click on the link below to read Guidance Note 24 for further information. https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/documents/index/guidance

Latest information and Covid update
- Open to all clubs, no entry fee to the leagues.
- There are two leagues consisting of a TT bike league and a non-TT bike league. So the only rule to determine which league you are in is; if you have TT bars on your bike, you are in the TT bike league.
- ✓ = League Points available. Where points are unavailable, it may be because the event clashes with an Open event.
- The series of Time Trials are run over the season and it’s your best 14 scores plus 1 marshalling duty which you get average points for. Please note, that only 1 marshalling duty point goes towards the average, regardless of how many times you choose to marshal during a season.
- 50 points awarded for 1st place and decreasing in increments of 1 point per place. (49 points for 2nd, 48 points for 3rd etc).
Marshals & Timekeepers
- All our marshals and timekeepers are experienced in hosting time trials, but please be considerate as they are volunteers.
- If a marshal position is a no show, all rider numbers will go into a hat and the rider that is chosen to marshal will ride for free at their next Time Trial. If there are no marshals, then there’s no race so please be prepared to help out.
- A very useful Timekeeper re-fresher PDF has been compiled and can be downloaded at the following link: TT_Presentation PDF
- A clear guide on how to use stop watches during the Time Trials can be downloaded at the following link: StopWatch_Instructions
- The Rota can be viewed at the link below. Please contact Toto if you’d like to volunteer for a time trial marshaling/timekeeper duty:
The Marshal & Timekeeper Rota is on a google docs site, and is kept up to date.
