It’s official, it’s definitive, and it’s extremely disappointing that we will not host a live 10K Time Trial this year. We plan to resume the series in 2021. Thank you all for your support throughout this Covid-19 insanity. Ride your bikes, stay safe, and as Bill and Ted so eloquently stated, “Be excellent to each […]
Planning for the 10K TT series this year has been interesting to say the least. In conversations with USA Cycling, early summer racing is unlikely. As in my previous post, we’re still hopeful we’ll race at some point. Once we have the permit we can head to Gardner. I’ll keep you posted here. Also follow […]

Thank you to Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com for setting up the race permit, Roger Harrison of Lanterne Rouge Racing for supplying the bib numbers, and especially to all of […]

Tonight’s 10K TT produced some nice results thanks to 5-7 mph breeze rather than the usual 17+ with gusts. A very good test for our racers.
