Time Trial

 The Mids have a great number of members who take part in Time Trials at both National and Local Level in various distances up to 100 miles and  long distance endurance events over 12 and 24 Hours.

2019 Club Evening 10 Mile Time Trial Competitions

The competitions for the Points Shield and The Hare and Hounds Trophy for the fastest Mids rider will be held on Friday evenings on the Queen’s Head to Gobowen course and Oswestry Paragon have kindly allowed us to run our competitions within their events. The trophies will continue to be for MSW members, the agreement being that we may need to help with marshalling on some evenings when required.
  • The first Oswestry event is 3rd May and the last event is 23rd August. All events are 7.00pm start.
  • Could junior and youth riders please bring a completed parental consent form with them for their first ride. Entry fee for juniors is £3, others £4.
  • The Mids 2up 10 Mile TT which is part of the Coaching Revolutions 2-up series will still take place on the Westbury course. 6th August 2019.

2019 Reliability Rides

Shropshire Cycling Clubs take turns to run a series of Reliability Rides, these are group rides that traditionally bridge the transition between winter training and racing. They are not races, although some will be going quickly, and are open to all. Generally riders are grouped in ability with the fast group going off first with a a few minutes gap between groups of 20 riders to ensure there are not huge groups out on the road. Entry is normally just a few pounds and GPX files are published for your GPS.
