The club has organised two Open time trials in recent years, a mid season 25 and an early season hilly or 10. Details of this year’s events and winners in past years can be found here.
Burton & District Cycling Alliance
The BDCA is a loose grouping of around 30 clubs, including Derby Mercury, centred on Burton and covering the region from roughly Walsall up to Matlock. The BDCA runs several events of its own including a 2-up and a hill climb. The biggest competition though is an Open BAR run along the same lines as the club’s own Senior BAR. The one difference though is that only designated events count and that at least one counting ride must be a BDCA event.
The 2014 BAR counting events are listed below…
The BDCA also award the Woodhouse and Westminster trophies for the fastest individual rider and team of 5 riders in a designated event.
Leicestershire Time Trial Series
This series has been running for several seasons now and is based upon a rider’s best 5 results from 8 designated events. The 5 rides must include a 25. A link to the series standings can be found on Leicester Forest CCs website. There are series awards and prizes for under and over 50 categories and also clubs with 3 riders counting in each event. The counting riders can differ between events.
