Rhos-on-Sea Cycling Club hosts a series of Time Trials every year. Our Time Trials are designed to encourage novices and seasoned riders and are open to all clubs to race in the series.

Time Trials are a great way of improving your cycling speed and the friendly, competitive atmosphere really makes it a lot of fun too. All rules & sign-on locations are listed below the time trials list.

New in 2024!   We have a new North Wales TT league (HCC, Egni, ACG & Rhos). The schedule is still being planned, but the current thinking is that all participating Clubs offer four events for the league. This is likely to run from April through to early July. In any given week, there will be a League event. Standard Rhos events will start in July once the league is over.

The League and additional Rhos on Sea Cycling Club Time Trial events for 2024 will be listed below as soon as the schedule is agreed.  Payment is at sign-on, correct cash please.  The Rhos fee is unlikely to change from 2023, though the fees across the league events are still being discussed.

Due to the 20 mph speed limit, we have lost the 15 mile course, which is a great disappointment for many. This is one of the reasons for pulling together the North Wales League, as many other clubs have lost courses too. In addition to the league events, Rhos will continue to put on the Nebo Road Hill Climb and A470 valley 10 course, on any non-league week Thursday evening.  Club Champs for these two courses will be run as usual.

Updates on all of events will be provided on the Rhos Facebook page, for example if there are roadworks that prevent the event from being run as planned.

The stats and facts about the fantastic 2023 TT season will be available after the Rhos AGM on 19 February 2024.

We are keen to provide events that encourage women and juniors into TTs.   Want to contribute? We’d love to hear your ideas. Email post@rhoscycling.com or Message Toto on Facebook.

Non-club members are welcome to join our TT events. You can test and try twice as our Guest, after which CTT rules require that you are a member of a CTT affiliated Club. We do hope you decide to join Rhos!

Rhos on Sea CC  are committed to inclusion and diversity.  The club encourages participation by all groups in competitive and social events. All Club events recognise and distribute rewards equitably between competitors.

Please note: It is now a CTT rule for all competitors to wear a helmet (regulation 15), and to have working bright front light (reg. 14j) and rear lights (reg 14i).  Please click on the link below for the CTT regulations https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/articles/view/11

  • There are no COVID restrictions at the time of writing (January 2024). If needed, updates will be posted here and on Facebook.  Please always be considerate of others, and if you are not feeling well for any reason, best not to come along for your sake and that of others.

  • Open to the North Wales participating clubs (HCC, Egni, ACG, Rhos)
  • There are separate leagues for males and females, and for juniors, and road bikes.
  • League Point rules are being worked up – probably the best 4 events.
Marshals & Timekeepers
  • Marshalling  and timekeeping can be a great way of getting involved in the Club. If you have never done it before, do come and try, you can shadow a marshal, and guidance and training will be provided.
  • If we end up being short of a marshal,  all rider numbers will go into a hat and the rider that is chosen to marshal will ride for free at their next Time Trial. If there are no marshals, then there’s no race!  so please be prepared to help out.
  • All our marshals and timekeepers are volunteers. Please be considerate.
  • A very useful Timekeeper re-fresher PDF has been compiled and can be downloaded at the following link: TT_Presentation PDF
  • A clear guide on how to use stop watches during the Time Trials can be downloaded at the following link: StopWatch_Instructions
  • The Rota can be viewed at the link below. Please contact Toto if you’d like to volunteer for a time trial marshaling/timekeeper duty:

The 2024 Marshal & Timekeeper Rota will be on a google spreadsheet, and will be kept up to date – check here or on facebook for links – this will be prepared once the league and other dates are confirmed, and by end of March 2024 at latest. You can cheer on the riders, as well as marshal, and you get to join in the end of TT season dinner too.
