We host a number of events throughout the year. For the 2021 season our events will be:

The BNECC Hilly 22 is an annual 22 mile time trial held every year on Good Friday. This year the event returns to the Broxton D22/1 Course, a sporting course involving almost constant rolling terrain. This year the event HQ will be at Carden Park Hotel and Spa. The event organiser is David Simmons. This year, the event will make up the third round of the WCTTCA League and the First Round of the RTTC Classic Series.

The event successfully took place on Good Friday. Race reports from CyclingTimeTrials can be found here, and here.

The Jackie Mac Memorial Time Trial is an annual 25 mile Time Trial held each year in memory of BNE member, Jackie MacAllister. For 2021 the event will be held on the D25/8e course at Prees. The event organiser is John Owens.

The event will take place on Sunday 27th June, with the first rider off at 7am. Entries close on 15th June 2021. The link to our Facebook event can be found here, and full details and entry can be found on the CTT website here.

 

The Club also usually co-hosts a series of midweek 10 Mile Time Trials along with Birkenhead Victoria CC, Chester Road Club and Port Sunlight Wheelers. Unfortunately, Birkenhead North End WILL NOT be hosting any club 10s in 2021. However, our friends at Pirate Juice CC have agreed to pick up our event slots this year, with Graham Weigh Racing taking over PSW’s slots. Details for these events can be found via the 4 host clubs, and the WCTTCA Facebook Group.

The series will once again run every Thursday from late April until the end of August (except 6th and 20th May).

The events are all held under CTT regulations for ‘Club’ events with entry for all events being first come first served on the night. Remember, as of 1st January 2020 that means ALL riders will be required to have a working rear red light attached to their bike in order to participate.

The club will once again be hosting our annual series of 5 mile Time Trials on the Wirral, now held in memory of Club Member Carol Boardman, who ran the events for many years alongside her husband Keith. In 2021, these events will take place on the first 4 Tuesday evenings of August (3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th) near Willaston. More details around the events will be released via our social channels nearer to the events.
