The Buxton Mountain Time Trial is organised by Buxton Cycling Club on behalf of Cycling Time Trials and is held annually on Good Friday each year. It is a RTTC Classic Series event and an event in the NW SpoCo TT Series.
The course is a circuit of 11 miles starting and finishing in Longnor which is completed three times by the Men and twice by the Veterans, Women, Paracyclists and Juniors. There are 390 metres of climbing per lap which, along with the variable weather, makes this one of the hardest time trial events in the country. It’s set in the heart of the Peak District National Park and so takes place amidst beautiful scenery and so it’s a great day out if you come to watch by bike or by car. Many family members, supporters and fans congregate in Longnor, where the race starts and finishes, to watch the riders pass through each lap and, if they fancy a break, there are plenty of pubs and cafés as well as the event HQ to keep them occupied.
The 2016 event will take place on Good Friday, 25th March. Queries about the event and those volunteering to marshal or otherwise help out should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
