CC Bexley Reliability Trial 2021

In aid of Demelza and Ellenor hospices

Reliability Trials are, like Audax events, not races, but rather long distance rides which emphasise fitness, self reliance and navigational skills – the difference being that Reliability Trials normally stipulate the completion of a given route (e.g. 100 miles) within a given time limit (e.g. 8 hours), whereas Audax is all about completing a route as close as possible to a set average speed.

Reliability Trials are most often run by Cycling Clubs and usually take place in the winter period, often used by regular racers and club riders to maintain winter fitness. Riders taking part in a Reliability Trial will be issued with a route card, detailing the course of the event, which usually needs to be signed or stamped at various control points throughout the route (some of which coincide with the refreshment stop).

Reliability Trials tend to be organised by not-for-profit cycling clubs rather than professional event organisers, and are therefore a great way to engage with your local club and find out more about club cycling.

Hot and Cold Refreshments available at the Event HQ plus a wide selection of homemade cakes, buns and rolls all served up with a smile by the lovely CCB Ladies.

Our Reliability Trial was held on a fairly mild dry day after a worryingly wet Saturday. It was rather windy and one of those days where it was hard to determine which way the wind was blowing. It seems you were always riding into it!

The host club won the event by one point. The full result is given below.
