4 Days, 4 R.A.C.E. Events left to go................
Friday, May 22nd - 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 - I 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: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Friday-Night-Cohasset-Uphill-Race
Saturday, May 23rd - Going to Folsom Criterium - No R.A.C.E. Events today. Sorry.
Sunday, May 24th - Lomo to Jonesville Time Trial (starts at Hwy. 32 at entrance to Butte Meadows; ends at the snowmobile parking lot in Jonesville) - This is the FINAL event in the Butte Hill Climb Time Trial Series! This 10.2 mile course climbs approximately 2,000 feet - starting at Lomo and finishing at the parking lot up in Jonesville. This is considered a Category 1 climb, and a map of this course can be found here: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Lomo-to-Jonesville-Time-Trial . And let me say this - it is amazingly beautiful up there!!! Registration will open at 8:30am at the corner of Hwy. 32 and the turn-off to Butte Meadows(look for me in the parking area across the Hwy.).......first rider will go off at 9:01am and we will go in 1-minute intervals. The trophy presentation is planned for later in the day - or possibly Monday night(since it's graduation weekend). Stay tuned for details. (FINAL EVENT in the Butte Hill Climb Time Trial Series!!)
