Aims of the series

 

 

The aims of the Midlands Women’s Time Trial Series are:

  • To create more opportunities for women cyclists in the Midlands to race against each other in local time trials.
  • To provide a season-long competition for women taking part in time trials.
  • To provide women cyclists in the Midlands with opportunities to meet informally, to make contacts and to initiate friendships.

We hope that the Series will appeal to:

  • Novices - who can try out cycle racing with little pressure or formality. No prior experience is needed.
  • Experienced riders - who all too often find themselves competing against only men or very few other women.
  • Triathletes - who can use the events for training, to gauge their cycling fitness or to practise pacing themselves for the bike leg in a triathlon.
