Drumbo Hill Climb (4th Sep 2012)

The TT series finished on a high - probably about 200m high at the top of the Drumbo Road.  The weather was unusually warm and not one cow (of the moo-ing variety) was blocking the road this year.

The Phoenix TT league also just happened to be using the Drumbo route tonight. This of course put the triathletes on best behaviour and anxious to impress the 'proper' cyclists. [Note to myself: remember to remove tongue fom cheek.] It was decided to unaminous relief that the hill only needed to be conquered once rather than twice.

Peter Morrison provided these sharp and colour balanced photos. Peter should give up being a fulltime athlete and take up sports photography.

That's it for the Tuesday nights this year. Thanks to everyone for taking part, trying hard and helping out. There will be a prize giving night some time in October. Details will be posted here soon.

Next year is the 5th year of the TTs and the organisers will be looking to share the work out and freshen things up with some new blood taking over the reigns. Have a think on new ideas and consider volunteering yourself.

Finally good luck to Desi in Las Vegas this weekend. Instruction for Desi: "no naked billiards", no matter what.

TT Training 2019

2019 Rules

You must have a TI licence (a training licence is sufficient), be a member of a triathlon club and have working front AND rear lights on your bike. Cycling helmets are also mandatory. For events marked (ATH) - this means it is an athletes TT, meaning that no TT equipment should be used, such as TT bikes, TT bars, aero helmets etc. You can of course turn up with TT equipment, however, you should be prepared for general teasing and mickey taking as the penalty for doing so!

As we are riding on public roads, the rules of the roads apply. The committee have notified the PSNI of our plans for the season; being seen and riding safely are of paramount importance - these events are very enjoyable and will improve your time trialling, but we should all stay safe when participating in them and we all have a responsibility to ensure that this happens.
