KETTERING CC OFF ROAD TIME TRIALS
| Yes Time
Trailing like our Road Friends but without the Traffic.
The dates at Weekly Glebe playing fields starting on :- Wednesday 28th April and every other week afterwards for a total of 10 events.
Start time for Seniors is 7:00pm juniors will start earlier 6:30pm, with further skills and speed tests for the under 16`s.
Be there early to sign on. , all levels welcome, last year they had a 5 year old competing, think you can beat him? Changing rooms, showers and refreshments available. Great -no pressure-no mass start racing,
Open to anyone to come and try, on a very relaxed basis, bring the kids but don't be surprised if they beat you.
Ride any bike you like, but tyres with some grip are recommended if it is at all wet. (tubs and slicks not recommended but hey we they all like a laugh!) Enter solo or with a partner, or in family groups.
Starting at minute intervals, it's you against the clock over rough terrain (OK so its mainly grass but its a lot safer than the roads) the emphasis will be on fun and the events will be very low key. Distance approx 2 mile laps, and usually 3 laps for seniors, 2 for juniors or just do what you like and try to improve the next time.
