Temple - League#12 (8th September 2015)

After a cloudy summer it was a bonus to finish the TT season with some blue sky happiness.

Dave Lonnen found himself stuck in a senior moment when he turned up at Carryduff to an empty layby. However Lonnen escaped the large gravitational pull of Carryduff and made it down to Temple just in time to start last. So, not much different from any other week.

After the TT McHenry was heard lecturing Preshaw on road safety. Apparently it turns out it's not worth risking your life over a few TT seconds. Life advice we do well to remember!

Thanks to everyone for showing up all season, having a good attitude, and helping out with marshalling. Hopefully as many as possible can make the prize giving.

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.
