The 40 km time trial is the gold standard for any time trialist and managing to ride the distance in under an hour is a genuine challenge and significant achievement for all but the very talented rider. Sadly the opportunity to ride a 40 km time trial is a rare thing indeed.

However, all is not lost because Wellington Veterans Cycling Club holds a few 40 km time trials within a reasonable driving distance over the summer months. They are a friendly bunch and the club welcomes guests of all ages. If you are not a member there is a small entry fee of $5.00. A number of riders from the Manawatu ride these events each season.

The time trials programmed for this year are:

Sunday 20 February 2011: 40 km TT at Kahutara. Guests of all ages welcome.

Sunday 13 March 2011: 40 km TT at Masterton. Sorry, this is an open event for masters riders only.

Sunday 27 March 2011: 80 km TT around Lake Wairarapa. I know it is not a 40 km time trial, but you can think of it as 2 x 40km J This event is open to all ages.
