Building on the heritage of the European mid week time trial where since time in memorial cyclists have convened on quiet country roads or busy urban by-passes to pit the strength in their legs against the clock we now bring you the Hardy Mid Week Time Trial.
This event is absolutely FREE
For your entrance fee you DONT get:
National ranking points
Medical back up
What you DO get is:
Serious kudos from your fellow bikers
A cracking technical single track course
The chance to gauge your training progress week on week
A chance to get KOM/QOM on Strava….
The route starts from the TamFeeds/CharDust junction on the Embulbul to Ongata Rongai road. As the rains are here the route goes out on Forest Edge Road (see Google Maps) and then takes a sharp left into the Ololua Forest following the “Route of the Skull” for the locals or “Forest lane road – forest run – mostly downhill” if you are on Strava.
The route is very technical and winds through trees so please watch the video Mark Davies sent out a week or so ago about cornering!!!
The inaugural event kicks off on Thursday 2nd April so a great way to start the Easter weekend.
Riders will set off at intervals starting at 17:15 for the early guys with last rider off 17:50/18:00 depending on light.
