Issuing an http request to distant server from a timer handler

I'm writing a module that needs to periodically request a distant HTTP server. I've setup an event handler through ngx_add_timer so that the handler is called every N seconds.
Is there a simple way to make this HTTP request from the handler ? I've looked at ngx_http_named_location but this needs a request as argument and I don't have such in my event handler.
Can I just create/allocate a new request and pass it to ngx_http_named_location ?
Thanks for your help,
