Hilly 21

Event Info:

The “Hilly 21” was originally held on the first Sunday after the clocks went forward in March and was traditionally the first time trial of the year in the North East.

Anyone who is a member of a CTT affiliated club above the age of 12 can enter on a CTT entry form and pay the entry fee. There are prizes for fastest riders, ladies, veterans, juniors and juveniles.

The race will be advertised as sponsored by the club sponsor Start Cycles.


Entries to be sent to Ian Bryan (ianpbryanprivate@live.co.uk): 63 Marine Terrace, Blyth, NE24 2LR. Please enclose a completed CTT entry form and a cheque for £8.50 made payable to Ian Bryan. Alternatively enter online. This is recommended for younger riders as it gives you the opportunity to download the necessary parental consent form which you must complete and bring with you on the day.

Closing date for postal entries is March 1st, but it is worth checking after that [with Ian Bryan] to see if there are any places unfilled up to the evening of the 8th. Be warned though, as an early season race on a popular course the event is expected to be over- subscribed.

Entry Forms are also available from the CTT website
