All riders are welcome to compete in these events if your club is affiliated to Cycling Time Trials.

If you are a new rider or not a member of an affiliated cycling club, you are also welcome to come along and have a go, however if you want to continue riding these events you will need to join a local CTT affiliated club.

Marshalling Rota

The Club 10's cannot run without marshalls and it is expected that all regular riders will marshall at least once in the season.

To ensure that we have the required number of marshalls at each event we have introduced a Queue Jumper system where if you volunteer to marshal on a specifc date then we will allow you to pre-book your start time for any 2 subsequent events (nb - this is subject to change depending on the popularity of the scheme). Given the popularity of the Club 10's this will be well worth doing.

You can register for this system either by asking at the sign on at the events or contacting us via the contact form on this site.

We strongly recommend (in all conditions) the use of a rear light.

Event Info

An eventful night on the M102B. Conditions were great with light cloud/a bit of sunshine, reasonably warn and although the forecast said that the winds were 8mph South Westerly, there was little movement from the flags at sign on.

3 riders managed not to finish due to a RTA at the crossing from East Hartford – the accident didn’t involve a cyclist other than the  riders who stopped to assist the pedestrian. Witnesses report that it may of been a little more complex than just a pedestrian being hit by a car, but whatever the reason behind it both carriageways were closed at one point.

Unlucky Ian Faulder who punctured on an early attempt, got back to SO, fixed the puncture, picked up a new number and got back to the start to try again, only to be stopped by the RTA. Eric who was taking photos at the spot where the accident happened found his battery had ran out at just the wrong moment, so no photos of what actually happened.

Just a reminder to all riders – supporting vehicles/supporter driving cars on the course are not welcome in these events. Supporters are very much welcome, but please ensure they do not distract the riders and in no circumstances park in the bus stop at the start.

Congrats to Kris Whitelaw who won tonight event with a PB (in the Club 10s) of 20:06, taking a minute off last years PB, and for those chancers (Dean, Gordon) who got caught up in the RTA - your claims of sub 20 times will be passed to the commissaire to be promptly dismissed for blatant blagging.
