The VTTA is the National body for time trialling for the over forties, administered through sixteen regional groups. The groups are managed by their own elected committees, each responsible for providing a programme of time trials, social events and help and support for riders.

Each group has their own competitions and records, and members can gain medals for achieving and improving on their standard plus for the various distances.

The VTTA is affiliated to the Cycling Time Trials (CTT) and governed by its regulations.

If you are interested in time trialling and live in the North Midlands, please join us!

Annual prizegiving lunch

This year’s prizegiving lunch is on Sunday 24th November at The Carlton Park Hotel, Rotherham.

Whether you are a competitive cyclist, VTTA (NM) Member, or have an award to collect, please come along and join us. It doesn't matter if you aren't a member - if you are over 40 and wanting to take part in time trialling, or currently competing, why not join The Veteran Time Trial Association (North Midlands) and you could win an award if you beat your Standard Time for your age category. Membership forms will be also available on the day for the 2020 season.

Tickets cost £20, and are available from our Social Secretary Ala Whitehead, payable by cash, cheque or PayPal, by no later than Saturday 10th November 2019.

The lunch will be 3 courses, with a choice of 5 options per course (view menu). We also have a raffle, as well as the main awards presentation.


Our Membership and Communications Secretary Chris Lea has been doing a brilliant job this year with his regular race reports emailed to members. The website still contains up to date group records but we don't post any news any more, although we will post details of the annual lunch and the 2019 prizewinners.

2019 age records - 13th May

We will continue to update the age records pages throughout the year. If you think you have achieved one please contact Chris Lea on
