The evening 10-mile time trial series is organised by local clubs on a voluntary basis. Thanks to all the helpers that invest their time and energy in making this happen. As with all cycling events, any offers to marshall will be much appreciated.
The “Come and Try” events are open to everybody.
The Evening Tens take place on the ‘Honiton Club Course‘.
The ‘Open’ on the 31st of May uses the slightly different S26/10R course, and can be entered via the Cycling Time Trials web page:
Please note that, as with all events conducted under national Cycling Time Trials rules, hard shell helmets plus front & rear bike lights are compulsory. Please also note that Time Trials are conducted on open roads, and as such you must obey the Highway Code when riding. Whilst there will be marshalls at the ‘turns’ they are not empowered to stop or direct traffic; riders are responsible for their own safety. Please note that in particular that there will now be no marshall at the T-Junction (A30 slip road approach Fenny Bridges) so make sure you give way to traffic coming from the right at this junction. The decision to remove a marshall at this point has been arrived at because riders were occasionally misinterpreting the marshall’s signals here and proceeding when it was not safe to do so.
HQ: Smiley’s café car park Honiton (opposite Aldi). Public toilets are close by. To get to the start (approx 0.6 miles from HQ) riders should turn left out of the car park, proceed uphill past the garage to the roundabout where turn right. Then turn left into Heathpark Industrial Estate, past Lidl’s, up to the T junction. Turn right and at the end of the road turn right again downhill. Go over the dual carriage way bridge and turn right to the start.
Start: On the old A30 just before the bridge over the dual carriageway outside Honiton, approx. 150 meters from the large lay-by on the right hand side of the old A30.
Course: Proceed up the old A30 towards Fenny Bridges until the T-junction (1.5 miles), turn right to go under the road and railway bridges, proceed through Fenny Bridges and past Patterson’s Cross, to turn left (3.5 miles) onto the road towards Fairmile and then turn immediately right around the green triangle retracing back through Fenny Bridges towards the start. Turn left again in layby (6.8 miles) shortly before the start line to retrace back through Fenny Bridges.
Finish: Small layby on the left after Paterson’s Cross, approx 50 metres past green triangle on Fairmile road. If you can remember to shout your race number to the timekeeper as you pass him or her that would be appreciated.
Registration time: from 6:15 pm on the day
Entry fee: £5 (cash)
First rider off: 7:01 pm
