With the Peak District as our back drop, we have an extensive arena to develop and hone all your cycling needs. Whilst we are surrounded by hills, we will build your confidence and endurance to climb even the toughest of inclines.
Winter Time Trial
Aka The Race of Truth….. The Winter Time Trial runs regularly on the 1st and 3rd Thursday night of the month, starting in October. Meet at the Tissington Trail Cycle Hire car park, Mapleton Road i.e. just through the tunnel… 18:45 for a 19:00 start.
Please check our Facebook page or ask at the swim session to ensure its happening when you want to have a go as the Winter Time Trial can be suspended in bad weather or for ice & snow.
The bike course runs up the trail (from just past the gated dip) to Thorpe, turn left up to The Dog and Partridge, left again, then after a flat section turn right downhill through Mappleton and back to the cycle hire car park to finish.

All you need is a bike suitable for the trail section, some lights & a helmet.
As well as being a bit of friendly competition, we’ll all get fitter just through doing regular time trials…
Come along, set yourself a time & then come back again the next time and try and beat it….
P.S. it’s free!
We are fortunate to have the regular use of the 1.4 mile track based at Darley Moor.
This is a great option for those that enjoy time-trials, as well as those that want to build their confidence with traffic free riding.
If you want to develop your duathlon skills, our training sessions here are a great option.
