TT Courses

We run weekly 10 mile time trials every Thursday evening throughout the summer. These are inclusive events with women's and men's categories, along with categories for TT bikes and road bikes. Additionally, the club sometimes runs two-up time trial evenings. We encourage everyone of all abilities to give it a go. To provide a fair and fun competition, we place riders into different groups with prizes available for each group. 

10 mile course (UC706)

The main club course which we use for virtually all our events runs between Teddington and Toddington. The course has been in continuous use since the 1960s. It is on a generally quiet, gently rolling B road in a rural location. The surface is very good and free of pot holes.

The first half of the course heads west to east, with a gentle 0.5% gradient most of the way and 1.5% in the last meters to the turn.  After a U turn around the roundabout at Teddington, it is very fast downhill run back to the finish.  There are faster courses than this, but it is a good ‘honest’ venue which can be quick once you get the pacing right. Most riders gain 30-60 seconds after a couple of attempts at it.
