Shetland Wheelers Club Time Trials

2017 timetrials will be similar to in 2016, with events on Tuesday evenings and Sunday mornings and each event time contributing to the standings in a season long series.
.
Sunday mornings (9:30 start) are generally for a choice of a 10 or 25 mile TT.
Sunday TTs will run from 2nd April to 28th October 2017.

Tuesday evenings (6:30 start) are generally for a "hilly" 12 mile TT on the Laxfirth loop.

There is some flexibility to do a 10 or 25 on Tuesday night, or a Laxfirth loop on Sunday morning if needed, but it is preferred to have folk doing the same thing on the same day as far as we can. 

There is more information on TTs in general and the Tingwall one particularly on the "Shetland TTs" page in Hints and Tips.

Shetland Wheelers Training Rides


Various club rides, training loops and training APRs will be held April to September, starting from the Tingwall Hall. Times, dates and formats are usually arranged on the Wheelers Facebook page to suit riders schedules and the weather. Anybody is welcome to suggest any rides too, and gather up a group that way.

For 2017 we hope to have a more regular schedule of Thursday evening APRs and Sunday morning social rides starting from April and with more details on the club's Facebook group.
