This month’s Time Trial was a race against the storm and every rider won. We skedaddled as the last rider came in just ahead of the rain and lightning. Gotta hand it to junior Justin Hizer who raced with two borrowed wheels, flatting both just before race start. Kent Woermann and Mark Thomas came to the rescue with the bottom half of a bike on a few minutes notice.
Thank you to Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com for being our holder, USAC Official Jeff Englert for supplying the race safety signs, and Roger Harrison of Lanterne Rouge Racing for the bib numbers and a DOZEN CANS of spray chalk to decorate the course.

We lucked out and escaped the thunderstorm for the final Time Trial of 2015. After results were announced, racers received a mini-clinic on the start sprint, cadence, and bike fitting. There was also a random drawing for prizes.
Many thanks to the racers throughout the season for your hard work, support, and involvement. This season has been especially focused on sharing knowledge and learning from each other.

Once again I will be attending the National Bicycle Summit, hosted by the League of American Bicyclists. Joining me are fellow KanBikeWalk board members Jeff Koenig and Barry Carroll, and Alan Apel of Kaw Valley Bicycle Club. Advocates from all 50 states will descend on Washington, DC March 3-6.
Our primary charge this year will be asking our U.S. Senators and Representatives to support the Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Act which requires the U.S. Department of Transportation to set aside a specific performance measure for non-motorized safety as well as motorized safety. Once USDOT sets the measure, states will set their own targets for motorized and non-motorized safety.
The League of American Bicyclists represents bicyclists to create safer roads, stronger communities, and a bicycle-friendly America working through information, advocacy, and promotion. To learn more or join, visit the LAB at BikeLeague.org.
