  • FAQ
  • During the summer months we hold a series of Time Trials at various locations around the area.
  • The time trials vary in length from 10 miles ( the popular Locheil 10) right up to 25 miles ( The Glenfinnan 25)
  • Sign on is at 6.45 on Tuesdays and they start at 7.00.
  • Participants must be 12 years of age and over.
  • All riders need to wear bright clothing and attach a flashing rear light to their bike.
  • It is very important to note that these are "club confined time trials" and as such for our 3rd party insurance to be valid we need to adhere to the following rules;                                                                                                                        "There should be no more than 25 riders, the distance covered should be no more than 25 miles and only club members plus any invitees who are not members of any cycling club and who have been invited to participate with a view to joining the Wheelers may take part."
  • A rider may only participate in "club confined time trials" of only one club in any calendar year

I am a member of another club, can I still just join the Wheelers and take part?

Theoretically  - yes! However, to do this you must be a member of British Cycling and have named the Wheelers as your first club. It is also important to note the fact that a rider may only participate in "club confined time trials" of only one club in any calendar year. This does not of course stop you from participating in time trials at other clubs which are not " club confined"

What sort of bike do I need?

A road bike is ideal, however, the trials have been done in the past on other types of bikes ranging from gravel bikes to hardtails to full suspension bikes. Basically, whatever bike you have just come along and challenge yourself and enjoy some stunning scenery and a bit of craic?
