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.
