Westerley Cycling club runs a series of time trial events at Hillingdon cycle circuit. These time trials are 10.35 miles in distance (11 laps) on a car free outdoor circuit. It is open to anybody but we usually encourage people to enter online before the event to avoid any disappointment. We use an electronic timing system which will give you very accurate times, also other data such as lap time, lap speed, fastest lap.
Most previous entrants have found that this is the best environment to get into time trialling as it is car free and safe. You don’t need any special equipment to take part.
We run two separate categories Time Trial Bike and Road Bike events which run alongside each other.
Time Trial Bike Event (No drafting allowed) £9.00 Adults £5.00 Juniors
You are allowed use of any equipment, time trial/triathlon bike, full aero helmet, deep section wheels inc. disc wheels etc.
Road Bike Event (No drafting allowed) £9.00 Adults £5.00 Juniors
You can use a mountain bike or road bike but we don’t allow any aero clip on bars / time trial / triathlon bars. No pointy aero helmets, no disc wheels. Wheels should be no deeper than 60mm. if you want to use any of these you should sign up for the time trial bike event.
Online entry can be found here.
The easiest way to avoid any disappointment is to enter online. Entry to an event will open 28 days before the event is scheduled to be run, it will then close entries on the Sunday before the event.
Westerley members can enter via the online spreadsheet, and either transfer money to Westerley’s account using the usual details (please email Chris Parrott to let him know what the money is for if you do though!), or simply pay cash on the night.
We allow some places for our club riders, however these do not always fill up. We will allow entry on the line providing there is space. (For example club entries have not sold out or a rider fails to show up). You’re welcome to come along to try to enter on the line but we cannot guarantee any places and any spaces available will be on a first come first serve basis.
Please turn up by 7pm (6.45pm on our first and last events) to give you enough time to get your electronic transponder and get sorted. Westerley helpers will be there at 6pm. From this time up until the first rider goes off you are able to warm up using the track. No one will be allowed to use the track unless racing once the event starts. Riders will be set off at thirty second intervals.
You must keep track of your own laps, the event is 11 laps in total and is equal to10.35 miles.
Results will be published (either on here or Facebook) the night of the event or following day. It will show the most important information and will be accompanied by a lap breakdown file.
