Time trialling is an ideal introduction to competitive cycling. It’s just you, your bike, and the stopwatch. It’s the branch of cycle racing in which Sir Bradley Wiggins won his gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics and his World Championship Gold Medal.


Time trialling is the simplest of competitive formats: a race against the clock, with riders starting a minute apart. It’s known as ‘The Race of Truth’ because there’s nowhere to hide, no one to draft behind; just you and the bike and the thumping of your heart. Oh, and a clock ticking.


Most events are a fixed distance of 10, 25, 50 or 100 miles. As well as fixed distance there are also some fixed time events such as 12 hour and 24 hour where you ride to complete the most mileage as you can. Most time trials are on public roads using 'out and back' courses.
