Reliability Rides

We run two reliability trials on consecutive Sundays in March.

 

These are an organised ride which challenges a cyclist to complete a set course, within a preset time limit. We have two events; 40 miles in four hours on the first event, and a choice of either 100km in six hours or 100 miles in 8 hours on the second event. Please see the TT Calendar within the TT Series page for the dates.

These are not races, and we will always have someone to hand to ride at anyones ability, as long as they are up to the challenge.

Both Sundays we set off from Barton Market Place at 09:00, with the rides being guided for those unfamiliar with the courses.

Please see below for descriptions of the courses.
