The Individual Time Trial is an annual event that we do every year. We have one early in the season and one towards the end. It gives you, and us, a baseline to see how fast you can be over 10 km.
One of the lessons that we've learned over the years with Spoke n'Hot is that there are quite a few of you who are faster than you think you are. The Individual Time Trial is the perfect opportunity to find out just what you are capable of.
We line everybody up, and set you off on a measured 10 km course. All you have to do is ride as hard as you can for the distance. There are no winners or losers, it's just a reference for you.
So the plan for tomorrow is pretty simple, we'll ride out to Pinkie road and go up it about 3 km. Then we'll all turn around, line up and ride! Last year we had 87 riders come out for the Time Trial, that's a huge number and something we are very proud of. We'll meet at 6 pm at the Harbour Landing parking lot by Party City. Riding by 6:30.
I'm reposting this from last week as it seems pointless to do it all over. The weather looks great tomorrow so I'm looking forward to seeing you all.
We all learn when we push ourselves so, please, plan on coming out. You might be surprised at just what you can do!!
I tend to be the noisy one, Theresa and the Ride Leaders are the real story.
