The Hampshire Road Club organises a comprehensive season of racing during the summer months (beginning in early April, ending in late August) which revolves mostly around the ‘Evening 10s’ – a series of 10 mile time trials on the back roads to Chichester. There are also 3 ‘Hilly 20s’ on a gruelling circuit via Harting Hill. We also take part in the Clonmore Trophy (a 25 mile team time trial) and the Annual Hill Climb in November. A trophy is awarded to the Road Club member with the highest points score at the end of the season and there is a handicap competition which is based on rider times on P841 and P843. This leads to friendly competition throughout the year and a considerable amount of banter, some of it good-humoured. The club time trials are open to allcomers – sign up & see how fast you can complete the course!
In addition, there are club runs on a Sunday morning in the off season, a 50 mile open time trial, Sporting races in the Portsdown Time Trial League and an Open 10 mile time trial in May.
Paul Whitehead organises Audax rides throughout the season.
