Last Gasp, Rave 40km ITT - Postponed

From Lorie:

It looks like there is going to be snow and -4c tomorrow. The cold snap is suppose to end mid next week. I am going to post pone the ITT on the Ring Road until next weekend. I will keep you posted.

Although Monday looks a lot colder than it originally did (0c & sunny) Lorie is still hosting the Rave ITT. We will start at noon on Monday letting riders go. Here is what we worked out:
1.) Riders will be at 1 minute intervals.
2.) Darryl Parry is volunteering on the stop watches.
3.) 52nd street is the only live street that currently crosses Stoney Trail so we will have to make sure when we cross when traffic is clear (just like any other stop sign you come to in the city)
4.) We will basically be starting at the same spot we did for the Provincial ITT but we will be going to 17th street SE and turning around and coming back (20km out and back). (Lorie will have a cone at the turn around) We will use one carriage way just for convenience. (this gives us 40 km exactly)
5.) There will be some crews out here doing punch list stuff so don't be to surprised if you come on a vehicle. However, they will be minimal and they are aware their will be bikes on the road.

Race takes place at noon. So get there with enough time to warm up and hit it.

Directions:
Take country hills boulevard east of Deer Foot turn north on barlow trail. Drive right through our no admittance signs onto Stoney Trail. Follow Stoney Trail east to Metis Trail Overpass and park.

Alternate Directions:
Take Country Hills Boulevard to 52 st NE turn north on 52 st. When it crosses Stoney Trail turn south on Stoney Trail come to Metis Trail Overpass.

NOTE: The highway is completely finished now. They are only working on spec reports and landscaping.
KEEP AN EYE ON THIS WEBSITE UNTIL SUNDAY NIGHT FOR ANY UPDATES.
ANY ABA MEMBER WELCOME. THIS IS NOT JUST FOR OUR CLUB.
