Change of Signing-On Location for Evening TT's - 3rd July and 7th August at Gilmorton.
In order to improve our Evening Time Trial Events, which have increased in popularity this year, the Club has made arrangements to move the 'signing-'on' and parking from the roadside, to the Gilmorton ( Sports ) Pavilion car park on Kimcote Road, Gilmorton. LE17 5PL.
This will apply to the events on the 3rd of July and 7th of August.
Events on the 5th of June and 31st of July will stay as planned, at Walton Village Hall.
This means that all of the remaining events for 2013 will have their signing-on, HQ and parking 'off road' at either Gilmorton or Walton.
Check each event in the 'upcoming events' for the information you require.
Please Note - Error in 2013 CTT Handbook - Time of Ratae Open 25 mile - 28th September 2013
The Open 25m. Time Trial on the A25/20 is at 2.00pm, as in previous years, and NOT at 10.00am as shown in the CTT Handbook and on their website.
Our Next Cycling Event - Evening 10m TT - Gilmorton - Wednesday 3rd July
