Straightforward route heading up the back side of the ‘berg and Col de Watson, then coming back on Victoria to Maltby. Aiming to average ~28kph, and we’ll keep it all together. Head to the club’s monthly time trial tonight if you feel like pushing your limits!
The third TT of our 4 event time trial series is this week, with first rider starting at 7:00pm!
Note the schedule for the final event in the series: August 19
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.
