    I entered my first club TT last night, and it was a friendly match-up with one of the other local clubs. 19.4mph average over a 9 mile course, not too bad for a first go and first day back on the bike after having a dodgy knee for most of the week. Plus, I wasn't anything resembling aero... I'll give it a go again at the next one in a couple of week's time and see if I can get above 20mph.

    Nice job for your first TT and not being aero. Back in the early 90's I was doing two different club TT a week and always love the race against the clock.

    How did it go last year and did you break evens?

    I too love time trials. Never been fast, but always gives me an incentive to get the bike out on those cold days.

    Have got to the start line this year?

    I did a second TT later in the year (a 3 up), and our average was 19.9mph over 20 miles. Haven't made it to one yet this year due to not being available for the first 2 club TTs. Will endeavor to make the June TT (on holiday for the May TT)

    Have a good holiday and a good TT in June.
    I am lucky that our clubs runs a weekly evening 10 series through the summer months, every Tuesday, so never have long to wait for the next one.

    And 20.1 on the same course with a headwind. Also still recovering from Saturday's 208 mile ride across the country. I think I'm stronger than last year
