I want to ride an evening event, what do I need to do ?
If you are new to time-trialling and want to ride an evening event the prep list below should help:
Check the club calendar for an event you want to ride.
Study the course map beforehand, or drive, or ride it, to ensure you know the route.
You can ride any bike within reason as long as it is roadworthy!
Turn up in plenty of time on the evening to sign on and prepare – sign-on is usually in a pre-arranged layby or car park – check beforehand!
Don’t worry about not having the latest kit or clothing, or that other riders are wearing it, everyone is welcome!
Course Maps can be found here: https://www.londonwestdc.co.uk/courses. Please see the calendar in the menu links for event details.

RCC Open Events
The club also promotes several Open Time Trials throughout the racing season. These are fully organised events with a race HQ and full marshalling. For Open events organised by any club, you need to complete a Cycling Time Trials entry form and submit it to the organiser with the entry fee (usually less than £10) normally 10 to 13 days prior to the event. You can find listed events and download a form from the CTT website: http://www.ctt.org.uk.
