2020 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. Riders are usually grouped by ability with the fast group going off first with 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 most clubs publish GPX files for your GPS.

IMPORTANT: CTT New Regulation for 2020 – Compulsory Use of Red Rear Light
From 2020 it is now compulsory for every rider to use a red rear red light in CTT events. You will not be allowed to start any CTT time trial if you do not have a working rear red light, either flashing or constant, that is illuminated and in a position that is clearly visible to other road users.

Standard Time Trial Times and Distances

Time Trials are a test of rider and machine against the course and the conditions on the day. To reward Mid Shropshire Wheelers members the club offers “standard medals” at all distances when standard times are beaten. Riders need to claim their standard at the end of the season from the Time Trial Secretary and medals are presented at the Annual Prize Presentation.
