  • Safety is Paramount. Extra marshals have been added, if any parents want to help out please contact Bob Latchem (
  • The minimum age for competitors, solo machine on public highway is 12 years.
  • Signing is at the bottom car park near the public toilets. Competitors must sign the official Signing – on Sheet. Clothing can be left at the finish at Two Tree Road just off the main road (second road right)
  • Competitors under the age of 18 years may only compete with the written consent of their parent or guardian given on the form(s), signed by parent or guardian to confirm such consent must be given to the event secretary or their representative when signing – on.  Parental Consent Forms can be down loaded from Cycling Time Trials website:
  • Helmets.  All competitors under 18, must wear a properly affixed Helmets and should conform to a recognised Standard ( see Cycling Time Trials website).
  • Bikes:  It is recommended that a working rear light, either flashing or constant, is fitted to the machine in a position clearly visible to following road users and is active whilst the machine is in use.
  • The minimum age for competitors is 12 years. This is in the interest of safety as most time trials are conducted on open public highways and it is not practicable to try and supervise all minors throughout the event. It is therefore essential that young competitors know the Highway Code and are competent to ride the roads alone, and have the authorisation of their parents to compete (if under 18 years of age). Competitors must ride entirely alone and  unassisted and not ride in the company or take shelter ( commonly known as drafting ) from riders or vehicles.
  • After competitors pass over the finish line, they should turn left at Two Trees junction into the Blagdon Road and any competitor making a U Turn on the B3134 after the finish will be disqualified. For safety all juniors riders will be held in the Blagdon Road until the event is over. At which point they can be marshalled out onto the B3134 and back down Burrington Combe.
  • Competitors can sign – on from 8.45 am to 9.45 am.    Senior riders will go first, junior riders will follow.

After the event we can have cake and tea at the Burrington Inn.
