Club Time Trial #1 – Wednesday May 21/14

The first of our 4 event time trial series!

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 a 17km long out-and-back route on the rolling hills of Fourth 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
  • please remember to bring your club membership card.

The 2014 club TT series got off to a great start this evening, as 6 riders tested themselves against the clock. The questionable weather that has been typical of recent club rides was nowhere to be seen, instead replaced with clear skies, comfortable temperature, and a light wind. Everyone gave strong performances, with two Personal Best times being set and the others being within a few seconds of their times from last year.

  1. Ryan Roth                 22:36.51        45.12 km/hr
  2. Robert Gutgesell        23.23.93        43.59 km/hr    PB
  3. Andy Mill                   24:48.26        41.12 km/hr
  4. Gabhan Chalmers      25:26.01        40.10 km/hr
