Note: We are forgoing the Tuesday Interval Night once per month to encourage riders to participate in the Time Trial series. There is no ride leaving from Arkell tonight!
The first TT of our 4 event time trial series is this week, with first rider starting at 7:00pm!
For 2019: We will be using the same course as last year, on 6th Line East.
Note the schedule for the other events in the series:
- June 11
- July 16
- August 20
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 16.7km long, an out-and-back route on the rolling hills of Sixth 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
