Closed Road Time Trial, 28th May, the NEC

Post by IanT » 27 Mar 2021 14:46

Come and ride a closed roads time trial at the NEC on 28th May!

As part of my fundraising activity for https://www.thetour21.co.uk/ the Beacon RCC is promoting a time trial at the NEC on the 28th May and I can promise you it’s going to be a little bit different. There’s no windswept dual carriage way to slog up and down. There won’t be a dilapidated village hall to sign on at and you won’t need to worry about traffic whizzing past you on course. You won’t need to park in a muddy field. And you definitely won’t need to have a pre-race, ahem, comfort break, in a hedge because there will be actual proper facilities!

On the 28th May 2021, you have the chance to experience time trialling as it should be:

• 10 mile closed roads circuit.
• Digital timing.
• Road bike category.
• Loads of car parking.
• Great catering.
• Amazing prizes - from Aerocoach, Huub and many others!

Did I mention the closed roads? I should also mention that the course is entirely flat. What’s not to like?

This event is raising money for http://cureleukaemia.co.uk/ and every penny from entry fees, sponsorship or donations will be spent on bringing pioneering drug and transplant treatments to blood cancer patients across the UK.

You can register via https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/race-details/22884 and it would be great to see loads of Beacon RCC colours at this event. If you’re not able to ride on 28th May but want to help the cause, you can donate via https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/geoff-GT15 or if you're able to volunteer to help during the event that would of course be an enormous help.

I hope to see you all at the NEC on 28th May!

Cheers - Ian

Looks interesting Ian.
Is the course a few laps up and down the NEC roads?

It's 2 laps of a a 5 mile circuit, the course map should be up on the CTT website within the next couple of days.

Well, it's all for a very good cause but if you're concerned about value for money, feel free to turn up a couple of hours early and you can ride as many laps as you want :wink:

Hi Ian - looks great.

What % goes to the charity/your fundraising? I've been meaning/waiting to make a donation and be good to know what the split is. This looks like a good way to enter an event and make a donation in one.

Is the entry the same price for juniors/juveniles?

Other than £5 that has to go to CTT as the levy, the remainder of the entry fee goes to the charity - so effectively a £30 donation per entry. There are some running costs but we've been able to cover those from a little bit of sponsorship and people volunteering their time. The entry price is the same for each category.

Hope to see you there!

Sounds great, Ian. I plan to make this the MKM's annual outing... just slightly concerned that I might not get in ('vintage' 10s being the only ones on my entry form).

You'd be very welcome George, even if you're the only one in the vintage category (meaning the bike, not you of course!)
