Weather looks like it will clear up for afternoon so this evening should be perfect for a ride. Starting next week the rides will switch back to an 6:00PM start so we can grab a bit more light. Don’t forget your tail lights!!
The final TT of our 4 event time trial series is this week, with first rider starting at 7:00pm! This is a great opportunity to get some last minute TT practice in before the Provincial Championships this weekend.
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)
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.
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.

Another great evening to wrap up a very successful 2015 Club Time Trial Series. Although turnout was slightly down tonight it didn’t stop the streak of outstanding performances. Three Personal Best times were set, including Ryan shaving 3 seconds off his best time to set a new course record! In total, 28 PBs were set this year! Congratulations to all 2015 TT riders.
