Welcome to the website of the Scottish Veterans Time Trial Association.
is the Scottish group of the Veterans Time Trial Association, a
national body which exists to promote the sport of time trialling
amongst veteran cyclists.
Cyclists achieve veteran status in
the racing season in which their 40th. birthday falls, and many
continue to race as veterans for a further 40 years or more.

those cyclists who have retired from racing find an active role with
the SVTTA as, for example, SVTTA officials, event organisers,
timekeepers, race commissaires or marshals. The photo
shows Timetrial Secretary
Jim Harris (right) in his racing days.
The SVTTA promote Championships at the distances of 10, 15, 25, 30, 50 and
100 miles, plus a veteran & pacer 2-up and an Olympic (hilly)
event, all being run in conjunction with an open event.
Results are based upon the 'Standards' calculation, which produces a
target time based upon age, gender and event distance, with the winner
being the rider who beats his/her target time by the greatest margin.
Consequently the competition is very
fair and a good performance for your age and gender will always be
rewarded with a good result 'on standard'. Competing against your
standard brings a whole new aspect into racing so do come
and join us at
