£3 for Barnesbury Members, £4 for all other riders.

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.

Sign on usually open around 17:30 depending on how long it takes to set the course out, and will be open for an hour.

Riders must sign on for themselves and numbers are given on a 1st come, 1st served basis. Exceptions will be made for riders that volunteer to marshal (with a specific date), young riders (early teens) so that they aren't on the course too late, or in exceptional circumstances with agreement from the Event Sec.

Riders are reminded:

  •  Be considerate and respectful towards the local businesses and area, especially in regard to parking, littering, warming up. DO NOT BLOCK or HINDER access to the HTL Group premises (the one with the flags).
  •  Queue/chat/use rollers on the paths not on the road. Always ensure space is available for pedestrians to pass safely.
  •  You need to know, understand and adhere to the Highway Code. If you can't then you have no place racing on the road. If you feel the need to run after the event, use the paths and if you must run on the road, run on the right so you can see oncoming traffic.
  • If it's your 1st time riding feel free to let us know at sign on and we'll happily offfer any advice.

It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with the route. Turns are signposted or marshalled. Marshals are there for you safety, not to tell you it's safe to enter a roundabout - that's your job as a rider to determine(see Highway Code).

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 and a hardshell helmet.

Check out yours, your rivals, your mates and your Clubs times over the season(s) in the Club 10 Stato

Event Info

Despite the thunderstorms of the morning, the course dried out nicely and the weather was pretty much spot on by race time with 8mph Southerly winds, 20 deg C and light cloud.

A good turn out and it was nice to see the cars parked in a way that will keep the local businesses happy. No reports of dodgy riding came back from the marshals which makes for a happy organiser.

The words "float night" were overheard several times and judging from the PBs below, it was.

 J Young (00:22:44, -260 secs), M Jesset (00:23:18, -180 secs), D King (00:26:33, -60 secs), M Bradshaw (00:29:47, -57 secs), G Zoppi (00:22:34, -49 secs), N McCoy (00:28:00, -39 secs), D Stow (00:21:16, -37 secs), M Wells (00:24:16, -28 secs), G Armstrong (00:23:30, -23 secs), Z Kyffin (00:20:26, -22 secs), D Meggison (00:21:03, -20 secs - BCC Course Record), T Brown (00:21:41, -19 secs), R Hughes (00:22:33, -17 secs), K Thursby (00:20:54, -15 secs), K Spence (00:24:16, -13 secs), D Williamson (00:21:25, -11 secs), S Kennedy (00:21:42, -6 secs), N Cranston (00:24:13, -2 secs), J Routledge (00:21:42, -1 secs)

Special mention to Dan Meggieson who broke the BCC course record.

Many thanks to the marshals and helpers: Sharon, Dennis, Eric, Jane, David, Trevor, Jack & Geoff.

Remember - we need marshals for the rest of the season and if I manage to get the rota filled and I don't have to cover multiple jobs,  maybe the Event Sec may get a chance to ride…
