This website might be a good place to look. Shows many "official" time trial courses. The sort you're looking for are mainly east of Sheffield over towards Retford.

Why do you need 25mm tyres to do that? i've regularly ridden them on 23's and even on 22mm tubs and have done since they were opened.

Don't think it would be much use to the OP anyway - too much other 'traffic' on them to safely get on the tri bars and get your nose down! :roll:
Convention? what's that then?
Airnimal Chameleon touring, Orbit Pro hack, Orbit Photon audax, Focus Mares AX tour, Peugeot Carbon sportive, Owen Blower vintage race - all running Tulio's finest!

The road out from Goole towards Scunthorpe following the rivers over the Isle of Axholme is about as flat a road as I can think of round there. Lightly trafficked, and with only a few corners to negotiate.
