Club Time Trial #4 – Wed Aug 20/14 – cancelled this week

The 4th and final TT of the season!

5:00pm update: After looking rather promising earlier this afternoon, the weather radar is now showing a heavy rainstorm directly over the TT course between 6:30 and 8:00pm. So the TT is CANCELLED this week.
We can try again next week, but I’m a bit busy Wednesday (it might work, but might not). How about Monday or Tuesday? Or maybe Wed at 6pm? Leave a comment below.

Time trials are a great way to test your fitness.  It is a race against yourself and the clock. Riders start at 1 minute intervals and the challenge is to try to catch the rider ahead of you and not to be caught by the rider behind you!  No drafting is allowed. 

We use the same course for each of the 4 TT events allowing you to measure your training progression throughout the season.

The course is a 17km long out-and-back route on the rolling hills of Fourth Line East just north of County Road 51 (road to Ariss)

TIPS 

  • maintain a steady power output and heart rate throughout the event
  • have a smooth, regular pedalling technique
  • position yourself to be extremely aerodynamic
  • discipline yourself to operate just below your anaerobic threshold until near the end of the course.

REMINDER 

  • please exercise caution during the TT, especially at the turn around, as the roads are open and vehicles can be expected
  • please remember that while waiting for your start to not obstruct traffic
  • please remember to bring your club membership card. 

Course Record:  Ryan Roth 21:30.39 – 47.43 km/hr  – August 21/13

Meeting Location:  Start Line – 4th Line East, just north of County Road 51 (road to Ariss)

Meeting Time:  Sign-in: 6:45pm, First rider start: 7:00pm

Tues. Hammerfest Aug. 12, 2014

5pm Update: Ride is on. The radar looks good – but forecast a little hairy, so we'll keep an eye on the skies and pull the plug if it looks ugly, as we'll be staying close to town anyways. 

Weather quite uncertain tomorrow, so if we get out, we can stay close to home with Guelph lake interval loops:
