Bank Holiday TT-Trouble Event Bank Holiday Weekend 28-31st May

Take part in our virtual Time Trial! 

Train, Complete and Enjoy

Join our TT-Trouble and train with a purpose!  Join Team TCC in completing your chosen race distance with a free training plan, free email support and assistance from our coaches and best of all, on completion of your event receive a medal and a race goodie bag straight to your home! The aim of this event is to post your fastest time to complete the distance, you will then score points the closer you get to the current national record for your age group. The closer you are the more points you score!

This is built to complement your training and does not need to be a race!  Complete the distances to gain your medals, your choice if you want to race it or take on the challenge and get the distance done.

More importantly, we will again be making a donation to our local food banks with a proportion of the profits, to ensure families who are really struggling can get some much-needed help!


20 KM Junior Event (Under 14)


Complete the race in whatever format you can!  Be that all on the road, on the treadmill and turbo (via an online training platform such as Zwift).  You have a full weekend to complete the distance and can have as many attempts as you wish.

If you don't want to ride the distance you can walk or run it and as a treat, we will give you from Monday 24th May - Monday 31st May to get it all completed. 



Adult Event (Over 14+)

Very similar to the juniors, complete the race in whatever format you can!  Be that all on the road or turbo (via an online training platform such as Zwift).  You have a full weekend to complete the distance, however, you must record them and upload them to Strava or email to qualify.

If you don't want to ride the distance you can walk or run it and as a treat, we will give you from Monday 24th May - Monday 31st May to get it all completed.
