CTT National 25 mile TT, L2529 (A66 Keswick Cockermouth Course) – Sunday 8th August 2021

Mike Smith, Asst Open Event Sec for the North District has on behalf of the North District agreed to organise the National 25 mile TT which this year will be held on the A66 west of Keswick, course L2529.  The event, starting at 7:00am on Sunday August 8th, will be split into 3 sections, Men, Women and Junior/Juvenile.

As usual this event needs the support of volunteers willing to be marshals. We anticipate approximately 12 peoples would be adequate.  Please let me know if you wish to volunteer to marshal and if so whether you have a preference for any section and I will forward this to Mike Smith.

If you wish to apply to enter the event the closing date is before 14th July 2021 and can be entered online at the links above.

On behalf of Border City Wheelers,

Protocol for BCW Club Events 2021

The BCW Protocol has been posted on the Club Time Trials page and this must be followed when attending club events this year, either as a competitor or official.
These measures are necessary to comply with the CTT (Cycle Time Trials) COVID risk assessment.
It’s not exactly a return to normal but a new normal for the time being, which is a start at getting back to our sport.
