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 forms for SC events can be found at
SC has not issued a handbook for several years. So rules, course details etc have to be looked for on the website.
While entry to a CTT event is enabled by being a member of an affiliated club, entry to an SC event requires you to have a BC race licence or pay a day licence fee (typically £10). You do not have to be a member of an affiliated club. A day licence is not acceptable for SC championship events.
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.
Scotland Group of the VTTA (SVTTA)
SVTTA of the VTTA has a website www.svtta.org.uk which will give information about SVTTA championships and other events that our members enter, whether SC or CTT.
NB: Performances in SC open events will be recognised for VTTA awards.
