In another change to the scheduled event (thanks to roadworks again!), the next GDW Time Trial of 2023 takes place on Wednesday (9th August) on the Gillingham 10 mile course. Sign on is from 6:30 pm at the Bublshop, Mere Road, Gillingham SP8 4EU, with the first rider starting at 7:00 pm. Full details of the course can be found on the club website. We are still short of 1 marshal if anyone is available to help?
This season the “non-aero” category is being changed to “road bike” in line with Cycling Time Trial’s definition of a road bike, with the main notable change being that deeper wheels are now allowed – “The road bike can possess drop or straight handlebars; no tri-bars, clip-on bars or Spinacci bars are allowed; no disc wheels; both front & rear wheels must have at least 12 spokes each; the maximum rim depth allowed is 90mm“.
*NOTE* – It is now a CTT regulation that all riders must have (and use) working front and rear lights and wear helmets – NO LIGHTS AND HELMET, NO START! Riders must also obey the Highway Code at all times.
Entry fees are: £4.00 for GDW members, £3.50 for GDW members aged 16 & under, £5.00 for non-members.
Entry fees must be paid by card or by phone – no cash! Once you have signed on you should leave the sign on area to undertake your warm up.
