How fast can you go?! Velo Club Monterey is hosting a time trial in Ft. Ord on Saturday, September 9th and we’re inviting all members to come join us, with a chance to win prizes for best times.
VCM is not a racing club so most members can only guess how they rank against each other. Here’s your chance to measure yourself against the clock with a 6.8 mile time trial in Ft. Ord.
The course will start at 8th and Gigling and circle counter-clockwise down the 8th Ave Extension, left at Parker Flats cutoff, left at Eucalyptus, left to climb Hennekens Ranch Rd., left on Gigling and back to the finish line. You’ll be riding the course by yourself with 3 minute intervals between each rider.
Participants must be Velo Club members (our insurance requires this). There is no fee, although we suggest that participants make a $10 donation to the club to help defray the costs of both the permits and prizes. Non-members can join the club in order to participate paying only 50% ($17.50) of the annual dues to cover membership through the end of 2017.
Prizes will be awarded for the overall fastest time for both men and women, and there will also be age group prizes. Age groups will be determined by number of participants and their ages. Prizes include:
Overall Best Time (winners in both Women’s and Men’s Divisions):
– Winner’s Medal
– New light from Light & Motion
– Bottle of Zabala Wine
– $50 bike shop gift certificate
Age Group Prizes (both Women’s & Men’s Divisions):
– $25 Gift Certificate from Local Bike shop
We also need a few Course Marshalls to help monitor riders on the corners of the route. If you don’t want to ride, we hope you will volunteer to be a Course Marshall.
