The trials of miles…
Hey kids, put yourselves to the test! The FDC TT series kicks off this week. We’re going to aim for 5 dates this year: the last Tuesday of each month. Aplogies for the late notice, it’s been a three day bender around here. I’ve never been so thankful for a Monday!
Yup, this puts us to the last week of October – have to keep that fitness up till winter! I can’t bring myself to try to remember what time the sun sets in October – so you’ll have to stay tuned-in for time updates once the days start to get shorter.
The official dates for 2012 are:
Tuesday, June 26th
Tuesday, July 24th
Tuesday, August 28th
Tuesday, September 26th
Tuesday, October 25th
Write those down. Here’s the lowdown:
1. Time trials start at 6:30 sharp, so be warmed up and ready to go.
2. Riders will start from the top of the Cedar Island ‘overpass’ on 1 minute centres.
3. Official distance is 24.8km . The turnaround is the CREW winery driveway – this is on your honour – get your entire bike to the grass on the other side.
4. Ride safe. Don’t be dumb. Respect your fellow riders, drivers & the pedestrians we share the road with. My mum doesn’t let me play with kids who don’t wear helmets.
5. No drafting.
