REVIEW FOR 10K TIME TRIAL RACE BY THE HYDERABAD BICYCLING CLUB
The brighter side to this one is you get to set a personal record cycling. The downside is that you're the one who has to break it in future.
The Hyderabad Bucycling Club is conducting a time trial competition on 17th May, for a distance of 10 km. It will be all on road, with no major hills or other reasons to slow down, except for a few bumps.
An individual time trial (ITT) is a road bicycle race in which cyclists race alone against the clock (in French: 'contre la montre' - literally 'against the watch'). There are also track-based time trials where riders compete in velodromes, and team time trials (TTT). ITT's are also referred to as 'the race of truth', as winning depends only on each rider's strength, endurance and determination against the clock.
Riders are sent out in a sequence, one minute apart, and the time is measured at the end. The rider with the best time is the winner. There are no prizes/categories - this is just to enable riders to measure themselves, have fun, and to gauge their own progress.
Participants must gather at HCU at 6:30am, and the first rider will start from there at 7am. The last ride will finish at 8:30am, following which the results will be declared.
The event is open to all club members who RSVP for it. Riders without helmets will not be allowed to participate.
