New Canewdon 10 Time Trial Course

Sunday 26th March @ 9:00hrs - Ride the new Canewdon 10 Time Trial Course (this is not a tt event)

NEW 10 MILE TIME-TRIAL COURSE

The club committee are pleased to announce that a new, local 10 mile time trial (TT) course has been approved for the Wednesday Evening TT League and also for any events the club may wish to run on Sundays and Bank Holidays. The new course, known as E36/10, starts just a short distance from Canewdon Village Hall, and proceeds eastwards towards Wallasea Island. Turning at the entrance to Essex Marina, it then proceeds westwards, following the route of the existing "Saturday 7" course. Going past the Shepherd & Dog public house, it continues westwards to turn at the roundabout near the Ashingdon end of Brays Lane. It then retraces the same roads eastwards, again passing the Shepherd & Dog, to finish in Creeksea Ferry Road, a few hundred metres short of the "7" finish. A link to the official course description on the CTT website is given below.

If anyone would like to acquaint themselves with the course prior to the first event of this new, Centenary-year season, I will be leading a group ride around it on Sunday 26th March. If there is enough interest there will be several different groups, hopefully lead by regular ride leaders, giving you the opportunity to make this a part of a normal Sunday ride if you wish to carry on afterwards.

We will meet at 9am in the car-park at Canewdon Village Hall, which it is hoped will be the HQ for the Wednesday 10s, but that is yet to be confirmed.

If you have never ridden a time-trial before, this is an ideal opportunity to meet up with some regular club time-triallists and ask all those questions you wouldn't normally get the chance to ask at an event because they'd be too engrossed in preparing for the start.

Please note that to ride a time-trial you do not need a special TT bike or special equipment, nor do you have to wear anything other than what you would normally wear for cycling. The only stipulations are that in order to comply with the rules of the CTT, the regulatory body, you must wear a crash helmet and have a functioning front and rear light. - Terry Butcher
