As part of Beacon member Ian Taylor’s fundraising activity for The Tour 21, we’re promoting a closed-roads time trial at the NEC on the evening of Friday 28 May. This is going to be a little bit different to most British time trials: there’s no windswept dual carriage way to slog up and down, there won’t be a dilapidated village hall to sign on at, and you won’t need to worry about traffic whizzing past you on course. You won’t need to park in a muddy field either, and you definitely won’t need to have a pre-race comfort break in a hedge, because there will be actual proper facilities!
The event will feature:
• A 10 mile closed-roads circuit
• Digital timing
• Road bike category
• Loads of car parking
• Great catering
• Amazing prizes – from Aerocoach, Huub and many others!
This event will raise money for Cure Leukaemia and every penny from entry fees (minus the £5 CTT levy), sponsorship or donations will be spent on bringing pioneering drug and transplant treatments to blood cancer patients across the UK.
Entry is now open – see the event page for links. Entries close on 14 May.
If time trialing isn’t your thing, please do consider volunteering to help out on the day. You can also donate to Ian’s fundraising effort via JustGiving.
