The Race of Truth

For 2016 the Waterloo Cycling Club will have two Time Trial series:

  • Our traditional 14 km Thursday Evening event on Crowsfoot Road
  • A new 40 km Sunday morning Time Trial

Thursday Time Trial

The Thursday Night Time Trial (TT) series is held every four weeks starting on Thursday May 5 and ending with a championship night September 1.  There will be two divisions: no aero-equipment and anything goes.

It is a race against yourself and the challenge is to improve on your own personal time week by week. 

WHERE

The course (on Crowsfoot road) is known as the “THE MARYHILL SPEEDWAY”   It is 13.86 km; roughly 7 km out and 7 km back.  This is a very fast flat course (other than a little downhill ramp at the start to get you going and to challenge you at the finish).

WHEN

Sign up begins at 6:15 and ends promptly at 6:30 when the first rider starts.

Arriving after 6:30 means you will have to wait until the next time trial – so please be on time.

Thursday Time Trial Dates 2016:

  • May 5
  • June 2
  • July 7
  • August 4
  • September 1 – Championship Night

Sunday Time Trial

The Sunday Morning Time Trial (TT) series will be held on the middle weekend of the summer months. There will be two divisions: no aero-equipment and anything goes.

The 40 km course, 20 km out and back, just west of Monkton is exceedingly flat and smooth. The start / finish line is on county road 55 just west of 23. There is room to park on the side of the road near the start.
