Club Time Trial #3 – Wed. July 8/15

UPDATE: Results now posted below.

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)

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.

Tuesday A July 7th ride | 6:30pm

RIDE IS ON. Looks like the clouds are clearing nicely, but there’s a small risk of some light rain en route, definitely some wet roads. Bring your blinkies just in case.

Best of luck as well to those club members racing the Pan Am triathlon this weekend! Women on Saturday, men on Sunday, both 8:30am. Smash it!
