Wednesday July 21th is bike time trial night again! We're using the same sign in and safety / traffic flow measures as earlier in the season so read on for an update/reminder...
We will be meeting at Southlands Elementary School at 5351 Camosun (the south end of Camosun just before SW Marine@ 38th Ave). There is ample parking on the streets in the area. Please keep your bikes off the road when not riding as the road is narrow. Please review the time trial course AND meeting location on the LETC venues link. To help reduce congestion at the time trial start.
When you arrive at the school, check in with the coaches or LETC time trial official with an estimated 16 km time trial time. Have a realistic 16 km time in mind so we can seed you for the start; slower riders first@ two riders every 15 sec and faster riders last individually at 30 sec intervals. You will be given a start time when you check in.
After check in, you can warm up on your own or small groups- a suggested warm up will be posted at check in. Please return to the school 5 minutes before your start time. From there, an LETC time trial official will direct you to the start line on SW Marine Dr in small groups to ensure we do no block the bike lane for other cyclists. When on SW Marine Drive heading to the start line, stay as far to the right as possible. Once on the time trial course, please ride responsibly and obey all traffic regulations.
