TIme Trial Tuesday 16 December

On Tuesday its the third time trial on the roads around the Town Fields.  Meet on Town Moor Avenue opposite Hampton Road at just after 6pm.

Please fetch your number to make things easier (a list of everyone’s numbers is below), you can make a new one if you have lost yours or I will make one on the night for you.  Please display your number on the front of your top.  If you have not registered you can do this on the night.
