Starting on 17th April 2019 and every Wednesday evening until 28th August (weather permitting) Wigan Wheelers and St. Helens CRC host a 10 mile time trial on the D10/1 course based on the Rainford Bypass (A570).
Sign on is from 6:00pm in Ormskirk road (WA11 7TA) which is the layby that runs in front of the Holdi restaurant. First rider starts at 7:01pm except for the first two events in April which start at 6:46pm and the last event in August which starts at 6:31pm.
We do not want to gather in front of the houses and be a nuisance to people who live next to the layby, we are better to keep to the North end of the layby:
PLEASE PARK AWAY FROM THE BUNGALOWS
The entry fee is £3 for members of Wigan Wheelers and St. Helens CRC and £4.50 for others.
Never done time trialling before? This is a good event to do in a welcoming and supportive environment! Let the organiser know that it is your first time so we can help you.
Also feel free to spectate, the best spot is on the roundabout by Holdi Rainford.
We also organise open time trials throughout the racing season. If you do not want to ride, perhaps you could help marshall the events, please let Amanda or Nigel know if you can assist.
For the 2019 season the Wigan Wheelers will be running the following events (see facebook event for more info):
We are affilated with British Cycling, CTT (Cycling Time Trials under the North and Manchester Districts) and the Cyclocross Association.
