Welcome to the website of the Scottish Veterans Time Trial Association.


The SVTTA 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.

Even 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 the SVTTA.
