Time trials have ended.

Sorry! I know that some were planning a pedal till ya’ puke all out effort for the last TT of the year.

Due to lack of sunlight and some construction, it has been decided to end this year’s time trial season.

Good work to all. Some have new Personal records. Some have moved up in class. Some have seen major improvement from season start. 

It has been a great season. The weather was only messed up once. 

I am sure we can look back with a smile, and hopefully sore legs and lungs. 

Thursday Night Group/Tempo/whatever it is ride.

The CCC Thursday night group ride will soon be winding down. This week the sun sets at 7:27 pm. That really only leaves time for a ride of 1 hr ride leaving 15 minutes  +/-  leeway time. 

Tonight would be a great night to test the waters if you haven’t been out on a Thursday ride. A group of people who more or less know each other going out for a spirited ride for an hour. It is nowhere close to as hard as your brain is telling you. Not once have I heard of someone being dropped…. OK maybe up the hills or on a well-known segment but the group always waits at the next corner or hill-top.

Come on out enjoy a short ride with your friends. Smiles are pretty much a guarantee.

6pm Meet at the Mass parking lot at the Diamond Head Industrial building at 210 Willmott St. 

Tuesday night TT

This could be out last TT of the year. Hurricane Florence (or what is left of her) will have a hard time to make it this far north but she may still influence next weeks weather.
Daylight is also in short supply. The ride home may be on the dark(ish) side.

Bruce is out of commission for a couple of weeks. This is a good chance for the big guns to close the gap. Racin’ is racin’.

Come on out and set your mark. Spend some time with the club.
