About us

Passionate about racing

...a3crg was formed in October 2000. We are a non-profit making organisation whose main aims are:

  To promote Cycle Racing in the vicinity of the A3 between Liphook and Petersfield, Hampshire.

  To ensure each promotion is an "Event" for the riders, rather than just a "Ride".

  To operate as a premier level time trial team for men & women of any ability.

  Fast and hilly TT courses created by us!

Although timetrialling is its core discipline, the team encourages all forms of cycling including road cycling and mountainbiking. The team have regular social events including training camps, club runs and winter turbo sessions.
