ROAD RECORDS ASSOCIATION RECORDS

The Road Records Association (RRA) was founded in 1888 to certify the genuineness of claims to best performances on record by cyclists on the road. Single Tricycle and Tandem Tricycle records ratified by the RRA are listed here. Records rounded to the next minute are shown without ‘seconds’, these records have to be beaten by at least one minute. The 1000 miles will continue to be rounded to the next minute. The Men’s Tandem Tricycle 24 must be beaten by at least one quarter of a mile. Fixed time records are rounded down to next tenth of a mile. (See RRA Rules 11.04 and 11.05) The Women’s Road Record Association (WRRA) was formed in 1934 to carry out the same function for women. In 1989 both bodies merged as the Road Records Association, which continues to ratify records in a similar way to over 100 years ago.
