Time Trials

 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.

2024 MSW Evening 10 Mile Time Trial Competition

The competitions for the Points Shield and The Hare and Hounds Trophy for the fastest Mids rider are held on Friday evenings using the Queen’s Head to Gobowen course. Oswestry Paragon CC 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 events run weekly from May until late August. 7.00pm start, enter on the night.
  • Riders under 18 years old must bring a completed parental consent form with them for their first ride. Entry fee for U18 is £3, others £5.
  • The MSW 2-up 10 Mile TTT is a round of the Mower Mec 2-up series (see below).
  • The MSW hill climb will be at The Stiperstones Inn on 27 August.


IMPORTANT: New CTT Regulations for 2022 – Compulsory Front & Rear Lights, Compulsory Helmets. These rules apply to ALL COMPETITORS.
You will not be allowed to start any CTT time trial if you do not have separate working front and rear lights that are 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.
