Club Evening 10-mile Time Trial
GYCC run our Somerleyton 10-mile time trial from May to August. The TT starts at 18:30 in May and 19:00 June & July then back to 18:30 in August. Sign on is at HQ, the field next to Lound Village Hall from 40 to 60 minutes before the start. Please park in the field, not the car park of the hall as that’s used by other people. Village Hall is on Church Lane, Lound NR32 5LL
After registration, we proceed to the start that is just north of the centre of Lound. The route goes north up to the A143 roundabout heading west towards to Haddiscoe. Turn left at St Olaves onto Herringfleet Road through Somerleyton. The route continues all the way to Blundeston, where it finishes a short way along Church Road.
The route is shown below and on our routes page as a downloadable GPX file.
1) Please continue riding past the finish on Church Road and stop in the layby outside Blundeston school. Return to HQ should be through Blundeston village, rather than going back via Blundeston crossroads.
2) Only the major junctions on the course are signposted, please exercise caution when approaching minor entrances to the course.
There is a small fee for taking part. £4.50 for GYCC members, £5.00 for other club riders and £5.50 if not in a club affiliated to CTT
We run a Time Trial league (more here). There are prizes available for all levels. Experienced and Novice riders can all win cash prizes. Ask an event official about details/cost to sign up.
