Time trialling

Pit yourself against the clock! Time trialling is a great way to compare your own improvement and see how fast you can go. Known as the race of truth because it's just you, your bike and your effort.

There is no need for special kit* - just turn up and ride with your normal bike (although silly hats and batman-esque bikes will also be welcomed if you are lucky enough to own one). We have a calendar of events throughout 2020 (event listing is here), and we'll even be offering prizes - which will be geared towards specific themes on the night. Experienced Time Triallists and everyone in-between are also very welcome.

Entry is on the night and is £4 for members and £5 for non-members, you can even pay by contactless payment on the night if cashless is your preferred method.

* AT THE END OF LAST SEASON CTT (Cycling Time Trials) PASSED AN AMENDMENT THAT REQUIRES ALL PARTICIPANTS TO HAVE A WORKING REAR LIGHT WHEN TAKING PART IN TIME TRIALS. NO LIGHT. NO RIDE.
But, we do have some lovely lights that we can loan out should any of you forget on the night.

Road racing

As Newbury Velo grows, we are hoping to be able to get strong road, track and cyclocross teams competing in local and national leagues and championships. There will be plenty of opportunities to try racing if you've never done it before, and there are plenty of members already signed up who have many centuries-worth of racing knowledge to pass on to those who'd like to know more. Newbury Velo are already hosting the British Masters Cycle Racing Championships in 2020, and we are hoping to promote some league and one-off cyclocross events as well.
