Bonus Putah Creek Time Trial this Tuesday April 6th

Via Joe Santos :
We are testing a timing chip system and need some data before the next Wed night event. If you think you will make it to the Tuesday night event, shoot me a quick note back so we have an idea for numbers in attendance. Below is all the standard information for the TT.

Rules

The TT starts at 6:00pm. Try to show up by around 5:30 so you can sign up and warm up. If you cannot arrive until after the start, that is not a big deal, as we can fit you in at the end. The TT starts on Putah Creek Road, about 100m west of the intersection of Stevenson Bridge Rd and Putah Creek Rd. This is where we sign up riders as well. When waiting for your start time or after the race, please do not congregate on the road. There is plenty of room to stand off to the side where we will not block traffic. Additionally, since the road is not closed to traffic, please be sure to ride all the way to the right side of the road. Please avoid parking on Putah Creek Road and the section of Stevenson Bridge Road near the Putah Creek intersection. There is an attached map - try to park in the area marked with green.

Riders are sent off in 30 second intervals. At sign in, you will be assigned a number. As you come across the finish line, be sure to call out your number so we can record your time. You can get your results either after the event or wait for them to be e-mailed out.

And the final rule, especially for all you PCSD veterans...look around, and if you see someone you do not recognize introduce yourself and welcome them into your group. Bike racing has a crappy, unfriendly, unwelcoming - yet well deserved - reputation. It doesn't do anything to help our sport. The great majority of PCSD attendees have always been incredibly friendly and cordial to all riders, which I think has directly contributed to the event's success. Keep it up.

Course Description

The course is 5 miles out, has a 180 degree turnaround, and is 5 miles back. The turnaround is marked 100m ahead, and there is someone flagging riders at the turn so as not to miss it. Although deadpan flat, there is often times significant wind.
