Cycling Time Trials has confirmed that as things stand open and club events will both be able to take place in England

Time-trials are set to restart in England on 29th March, providing the easing of Covid-19 restrictions goes ahead as planned.

Following the publishing of the Government's strategy to gradually lift the lockdown, the national governing body for time-trials in Great Britain, Cycling Time Trials, confirmed that both open and club events will be able to go ahead from next month.

For everything to happen on time, tests on vaccines, infection rates and new variants need to be passed. If that goes as planned, organised outdoor sport compliant with the relevant governing body's guidance will be allowed to resume from Monday 29th March.

Any event being held will have to also meet the requirements of Cycling Time Trials's Covid-19 risk assessment

An announcement on restrictions in Wales is expected in around three weeks while it is not yet clear when organised sport in Scotland can resume despite the Scottish Government's announcement, with a further statement expected in mid-March.

So clean your bike, get your aero kit ready, say your last goodbyes to Zwift (until it rains) – normality awaits.
