Thurs., Fri., Weekend events!..................

A few more little events this week!

Thursday, March 26th - River Road 10-Mile Time Trial - Registration opens at 5:40pm, with the first rider going off at 6:01pm. We will go in 1-minute intervals for this 5-miles out, 5-miles back, all-flat Time Trial. This classic Chico Time Trial course has been used for the last 29+ years. Come on out after work and give this one a shot! An extremely rough draft of this course can be found here - (yes, the course is really 10 miles, not 9.9). And if you look at the Elevation might tell you why coming back always seems a bit tougher than going out! (Final Stage of the March Rodneyum!)

Friday, March 27th - Cohasset Narrows Mini-Road Race - Registration will open at 5:45pm on Ryan Avenue on the north end of the airport - just to the west of the Fifth Sun parking lot(look for me on Ryan Avenue with the clipboard). Ride leaves at 6:00pm and will climb to just past the "Road Narrows" & "Share The Road" sign at the top of the "good" road - just go your own pace. The ride itself is only about 7 miles in length, but includes about 1,500 feet of climbing. I will be there with the sag vehicle if you run into a problem - and will be at the finish line to score you - will have water too. This is a great little after-work ride to stretch the legs a bit for the weekend! An approximate map of the course can be found here:

Saturday, March 28th - Early Saturday Morning Chico Airport Criterium - Registration will open at 7:40AM on Convair avenue at the Airport - with the event starting at 8:00AM. (Sorry it is so early - I gotta get things rolling for tomorrow's Tour of the Unknown Valley North on Saturday, so 8AM was the only time I could do it. Sorry about that.) We'll be using our standard Tuesday Night course starting/finishing at Convair Avenue - . Must sign in and wear a helmet in order to compete!! AND - Yes, the points in this Criterium ALSO count towards the Tuesday Night Airport Crit Series.

Sunday, March 29th - Chico Velo's Tour of the Unknown Valley North - Please visit for more information on this great 72-Mile ride taking place out of Orland, CA!!
