Time trialling is often referred to as the “race of truth”, as it involves cycling by yourself (or in a team) on a road circuit where the start and finish are near to each other. There is no advantage to be had from competitors, and environmental factors such as wind are mostly evened out.
The club is relatively new to the time trialling scene, but has had some success this season with a number of individual and team wins. We also have a very high participation level in the local club events; for these you just need to turn up with your bike, put your name down and for a small fee you get your ride and an official time.
Time trialling is an optimisation game. You can get started with just your road bike, and over time can improve your position, training, mentality and equipment; it just how much time, will-power and money you have! Even if you’re not that fast to start with, you can get a lot of satisfaction from small improvements over the course of a season, and there is a lot of experience within the Iceni Velo for you to tap into!
