3RVS is hosting a Time Trials again this year. The TT’s will be held once a month on Old 24E just east of HWY 101 by Woodburn. We will ride to Antwerp, Ohio and turn around at the 2nd Antwerp sign. We will have a Police officer at the turn around to stop traffic. We tried this last year and it worked out very well.
This years TT’s will be on April 18, May 23, June 20, July 18, August 15, and September 19 26. First rider out at 6:30. Everyone must register by 6PM.
What is a time trial? It is a timed race against the clock. Just you and the clock. We will line up along the road and take off one by one every 30 seconds. If you catch the rider in front, you may NOT draft but must pass in a wide but safe manner.
The TT’s start east of HWY 101 about a 1/2 miles down on 424. You are to park west of HWY 101 on the north side. Please park as close to the car behind you. We have limited spacing. Arrive early to warm up. Sign in will be 5:45 to 6:15 Must pay your $1 at sign up.
The TT starts about 1/2 mile down 424 . VERY IMPORTANT: Stay on INSIDE of white line on the side of the road while waiting. Please remember the road is not closed to us and THERE WILL BE TRAFFIC. It is usually lightly traveled after 6:30 but it is traveled. Please use extreme caution when making a U-turn during warming up.
TT will start at 6:30 and riders will roll out every 30 seconds. The turn-around is the navy blue Antwerp sign. There will be marks on the road. A police officer will be there to stop traffic as you turn. The timer will be have moved to be on your side of the road. Yell your name as you cross the clock.
We will have 3 classes and men’s and women’s in each.
If you have aero bars on your road bike you will be timed with all the aerobar bikes. Road bike division can not have aero bars.
Please remember the road is not closed to us, it is usually lightly traveled after 6:30 but it is traveled. Please use extreme caution when making a U-turn during warming up.
The 3RVS TT’s are for all 3RVS members to set a base time then follow through monthly or maybe a few times a year to see their improvement.
