If you are worried about easy ingress and egress of your vehicle park on the flatter area towards the eastern side of the start/finish area.

Safety:

The park will not be closed to vehicular traffic. Marshals do not have the authority to force vehicles to stop. Keep your head up at all times. It is the rider’s responsibility to ensure it is safe to proceed.

Please keep the side of the road clear. Riders will be constantly racing by before and after your ride.

Helmets are mandatory. Riders are required to wear a hard-shell ANSI or SNELL approved helmet while racing, warming up, and cooling down.

Park so your bumper is well off the side of the road. Park only on the inside side of the loop, not the outside.

Do not mill around on the road before or after your race. It is a traffic hazard and discourteous to riders still racing and other park users.

  • Special time trial equipment is not needed.
  • All bikes welcome. Traditional road bikes will meet UCI guidelines. Some triathlon bikes and old school time trial specific bikes may not and will be ranked separately.
