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.
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).
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 – 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.
Sign up begins at 9:30 and ends at 9:45. The first rider will go off at 10 am.
Sunday Time Trial Dates for 2016:
- June 12 (combined with OMCA)
- July 17

Inclement Weather: The time trial will be cancelled if there is solid rain (causing rooster tails off your back wheel) or lightning between 6-8 pm, if the temperature is below 0 C, or if there are sustained winds greater than 40 kph. If the ride is going to be cancelled, a tweet will be sent from @WaterlooCC (see right side of home page).
