There are two governing bodies for time trials in Scotland: Scottish Cycling (SC), which is part of British Cycling, and Cycling Time Trials (CTT). The purpose of this section is to make members aware of points arising from this that are not covered elsewhere on the website.
Events that VTTA members might want to ride in Scotland could be organised within SC or CTT.
These are listed in a section of the British Cycling website
SC events will also be shown in a section of the printed British Cycling Race Calendar, which is usually issued three times a year.
Entry to SC events is by the online system or on the day.
Entry to a Scottish Cycling event requires you to have a British Cycling membership of Silver or above or you can pay a day licence fee (£5-10). You do not have to be a member of an affiliated club. For all Scottish Cycling Championships, a day licence is not accepted.
SC has its own Technical Regulations, with important differences concerning clothing and bike dimensions. These can be found at
CTT events in Scotland operate on the same basis and with the same entry arrangements as in England & Wales. The CTT has made specific provision for identifying users of the online system who are VTTA members. SC does not have such a system.
If you ride a Scottish Cycling event and want to include the result for the assessment of your standards awards or National VTTA Season Long Competitions, please send details to the Scotland Group Recorder. Forms for submitting SC results will shortly be made available on the VTTA website.
If you wish to participate in any of the Scotland VTTA BAR Championships, then you must complete a form containing your results achieved on Scottish courses and send it to the Scotland Group Recorder by 1st November each year. Forms for submitting SVTTA BAR Championship results will shortly be made available on the VTTA website.
Scotland Group allows its members to claim standards awards in SC Club events and CTT Type B events. Such events must be run on Type A classified courses and satisfy the Type A timekeeping and recording requirements. Results from such events are not eligible for Season Long Competitions and Records (see regulation 3.2.2).
