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-19 UPDATE: Time Trials are now back on, with some restrictions

Cycling Time Trials (CTT) advised Welsh Clubs on the 18th July that we could now start time trials, subject to some modifications and a comprehensive Covid Risk Assessment.  We are limited to a max of 30 people at the event, including timekeepers, marshals and riders: this means 25 riders max.  Strict social distancing must operate at the carpark, start, during the ride and at the end, for riders, timekeepers and marshals.  Booking will be in advance, first come first serve. A comprehensive set of rules based on the CTT RA and guidance has been compiled for Rhos.  Riders should be ‘self contained’ in case of any mechanical problems, and are strongly recommended to carry a mobile phone. Please read the Rhos on Sea Cycling Club TT-covid-guidelines.

The remaining events are Valley 10 miles D10/16, meeting at Bodnant Food Centre lower carpark. The last event  is Llanrwst Hill Climb 24/0, meeting at Glasdir carpark in Llanrwst.

A new regulation was voted in at last year’s Cycling Time Trials National Council and it is now compulsory for all competitors to fix a working rear red light to their machine in all CTT events, both open and club. In addition, Rhos strongly recommends a working bright front light.

Please click on the link below to read Guidance Note 24 for further information on this matter.  https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/documents/index/guidance

Liverpool District have produced 2 new Local Regulations for 2020.
The first local regulation gives the Time Keeper the ability to disqualify riders who are seen to make a U Turn in the vicinity of the start area,  as reported by the starting steward or other official. https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/get-file/153-local-regulations.  

The second regulation allows the Club to enforce the wearing of arm numbers. Rhos on Sea CC does not use arm numbers at any Club or Open events, but riders should be prepared to do so if asked at other non-Rhos local TTs.

Open TT events effectively cannot be held in Wales, due to the Covid restriction of a HQ not being allowed, and the limit of 30 people at any organised event.

Latest information and Covid update
Open Leagues
  • 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:
