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!

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.
