Norfolk Time Trial Series Starts May 20

Norfolk-Race-Series-featured-size-300x166[1]The Norfolk Time Trial Series makes its return after a brief hiatus with three events for 2014.

This is an excellent chance to get out and ride a set distance for time to test yourself. Use it to measure your fitness as it progresses over the summer or as a bragging tool with your friends. Either way – come out and join in the fun.

Races will be held on May 20, June 17 and July 15.

As always, the Norfolk TT series is free and, while times are calculated with winners declared, no prizes are awarded.


The course is a rolling 10 mile out-and-back course on an open course. The first rider is sent off at 7PM sharp, with successive riders given the “Go” at one minute intervals. A rider’s meeting precedes each night’s racing at 6:45PM.

In years past, there were divisions for beginners and seasoned racers divided into categories. This format will be adopted again this year based on participants.
