We have finally confirmed the 2021 open event programme for time trials on Teesside.
The updated programme is in the latest edition (amendment 4) of the 2021 Teesside District Cycling Time Trials Open Events & Competition Booklet.
The changes are :-
- We have an additional hill climb on Sunday 12th September 2021, to be organized by AIMS Cycling. This is the first event to be organized by this local sponsored club. More exciting, is that they have chosen to resurrect the previous Teesside Cycling Association Championship Hill, Kildale hill. This was used for decades, quite often the only hill climb in the district, and was last used circa late eighties. The climb takes you from just north of Kildale village up towards Gribdale Moor. The district’s thanks go to AIMS Cycling for stepping forward with this new event. With the addition of this new hill climb, Teesside now boasts 6 hill climbs in the district in 2021, something I do not think has been experienced before. Please support these events by either riding them (and qualifying for the Teesside District hill climb championship) or if restrictions permit, give the riders some support and encouragement.
- The VTTA (North) 15mile time trial scheduled for 12th September 2021 has been cancelled.
All event details have been updated on the Cycling Time Trials website.
It is hoped, if the current roadmap to the relaxing of Covid-19 restrictions go ahead as planned, there will not be too many difficulties experienced in the organizing of the programme of events. The only area of concern is whether village halls will be made available for use as headquarters, something recently experienced by the organizer of the forthcoming Stockton Wheelers SPOCO event & inaugural District Road Bike Championship.
On a positive note, lets all look forward to a full season of events and hopefully some better weather
Kindest Regards & Please Keep Safe
Teesside District Secretary
