Cycling Time Trials (CTT) is the authoritative body for time trialling in the UK. It has a highly active and forward-looking membership, and this is reflected in its informative and up-to-date website. A handful of events allow online entry; you can filter for these on the main CTT website, or go to the Online Event Entry portal to sign up and enter. (Note that payment is by credit or debit card, and there's a 70p surcharge as a result.)
We have some pictures of the Lotus Bike, a time-trialling dream designed and crafted by Norfolk's Mike Burrows.
There is also a small section on how to position yourself optimally on the bike.
During my time at the University of East Anglia Cycling Club I collected various results and press clippings, which might still be of interest to someone. A good friend and fellow cyclist, Andy Tyler, also wrote a cracking piece about pushing yourself to the limits in a time trial.
He has also put together some Handy Hints to improve your athletic ability.
This map shows the start points of selected time trial courses. It isn't complete! Please contact me if you'd like to add some in your own region, or if I've made any mistakes.
