Jerseys and jackets

2015 is just around the corner and just because there’e snow on the ground doesn’t mean we’re not preparing for it.

We want to take the time to invite anyone who is interested in cycling, triathlon, or the occasional run to give Elkhorn Valley Cycling Club (EVCC) consideration. EVCC organizes and/or participates in local group rides on and off the road, organized tours, trail maintenance, and races both casual and serious.

In 2015 we are planning Saturday morning (instead of weeknight) time trials alternating with some group 5k runs, followed by breakfast at a local eatery.

July 15 Norfolk TIme Trial

Periodically, things just go awry. Tonight was one of those times. One person (Richard – but who’s keeping track) thought the race started at 6:30 and when no one was there he went ahead and rode the course on his own. Then he rode it again when he got back and realized what happened.

Once everyone was on the road, Gabe missed a turn and ended up somewhere off course.

Dennis set his fastest time ever though and Richard rode his second TT faster than his first one.

By popular demand, we added another time trial to finish out the year on August 19.

  1. Richard Hake      0:28:17      21.21
  2. Dennis Smith     0:29:20      20.45

Norfolk Time Trial Series Starts May 20

Norfolk-Race-Series-featured-size-300x166[1]The Norfolk Time Trial Series makes its return after a brief hiatus with three events for 2014.

This is an excellent chance to get out and ride a set distance for time to test yourself. Use it to measure your fitness as it progresses over the summer or as a bragging tool with your friends. Either way – come out and join in the fun.

Races will be held on May 20, June 17 and July 15.

As always, the Norfolk TT series is free and, while times are calculated with winners declared, no prizes are awarded.

HELMETS MANDATORY. 

The course is a rolling 10 mile out-and-back course on an open course. The first rider is sent off at 7PM sharp, with successive riders given the “Go” at one minute intervals. A rider’s meeting precedes each night’s racing at 6:45PM.

In years past, there were divisions for beginners and seasoned racers divided into categories. This format will be adopted again this year based on participants.
