Bloomfield Time Trial Series

Join us on Thursday 13 August 2015 for our 4th monthly 20k Time Trial series with the first rider off at 6.30pm. Time Trials are a great way to improve your overall cycling fitness in an individual race against the clock. Riders will be set off at 1 minute intervals and will ride a 20k out and back course and with a monthly series you will be able to measure your fitness and speed improvements throughout the summer. This is a real crossover sport as it is perfect training for Triathletes who can pit their skills against pure cyclists. The aim of this series is to attract riders from all walks of like and all fitness levels, we want to be as inclusive as possible so please do not be intimidated if you are not familiar with this style of riding. Drafting is not permitted so it really is a solo effort against the clock so no need to worry about how other riders are performing.

Our course uses the 2 dead turns on Fraser Road and Centennial Road just outside Hampton with the start line being on the Fraser Road end. Here is a link to the exact course we will be using.
