TTs for the remainder of the season

Following our meeting at the mid summer barbecue, some riders felt that the Carryduff TT was becoming more busy and less safe. For now, we have dropped it from the calendar and will review again for next year.

There are a couple of changes therefore to the original schedule - all the sates and venues are listed below.

Schedule for the remainder of the season

24th July - Temple
31st July - Harbour Estate
7th August - Killinchy
14th August - Killynure
21st August - Temple
28th August - Killinchy
4th September - Drumbo

Conor P has volunteered for the race at Temple on Tuesday.

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.



27 - Titanic (Head to head final)

3 - Drumbo Hill Climb
