Time Trials Start
May 7th, 6:15 PM!

Again this year we will be running Time Trials from the fireplug east of Holt Road in Webster Park out Lake Road to the Ontario on the Lake road, precisely 5 miles away, and then precisely 5 miles back. (It seems longer, but it isn’t.)

Why? It’s a great incentive to get into better shape, and you can track your progress quite accurately. F’rinstance, my best time back in the early 70’s was almost 3 minutes faster than last summer’s best time, so I’ve lost 10% over the last 30 years! Oops, that’s regress, isn’t it! Oh well.

I’ll take your start & finish times and attempt to subtract the former from the latter, and keep the results, so you can track your progress, and after the ride there’s an informal excuse exchange and Q&A session on technique and other topics of interest. I learned something last summer about how to pedal I’d never understood!

This isn’t just an activity for the would - be racers in the club. The better shape you’re in, the more rides you can do, and the more you will enjoy all the rides you do. Give it a try - it feels great when you stop!
