4/25 Short Time Trial

4:10--Rain is in the forecast with cooler temps, so ride is off for today.  We'll try again next week for the Short Time Trial...

Come out and stretch the legs!

This is an individual time trial (no drafting), and riders will go off in 30 second intervals, ordered roughly from slower to faster. Points are given in descending order (if there are 10 riders, 1st place gets 10 points, 2nd place gets 9 points, etc.) Points go to your season tally.

Course: The relatively flat ~9.4 mile course runs from the South Station Road/Rt 3 intersection in Woodstock down to Campton. The finish line will be the big Thornton Auto Repair sign on the right (just after the bridge) as you ride south. We'll be collecting times at the finish, so bring a way to time yourself. 

Course Records:  M: Jeff Litchfield, 20:55, 8/25/13  W: Jen Marts, 23:55, 5/31/16  T: John Jurczysnki & Ann Rasmussen, 20:45, 7/12/16

The time trial starts at 6pm* at Rt 3/South Station Road. If the forecast is questionable, check back here for day-of ride confirmation by 4pm.

Hope to see you there/let us know if you have any questions (comment here or email at mightypemiATgmail).

4/18 Stinson Lake Road Hillclimb

Since it's a hillclimb, we'll have a group start and drafting is allowed. Points are given in descending order (if there are 10 riders, 1st place gets 10 points, 2nd place gets 9 points, etc.) Points go to your season tally.

Course: Starting from the green on Main Street in Rumney, the course rises haltingly 800 feet over ~4.3 miles. Up top, the road levels off and runs along the lake for another mile or so, making the entire course ~5.5 miles. Finish will be the Rumney/Ellsworth town line. We'll collect times at the end, so bring a way to time  yourself.

Course Records:  M: Tom Sampson--17:205/14/14    W: Ann Rasmussen--22:207/8/14  T: John Jurczynski & Ann Rasmussen--20:36, 8/30/16

4/11 River Road Time Trial

Tuesday should be a great day to kick off the '17 Series...

This is an individual time trial (no drafting); riders will go off in 30 second intervals, ordered roughly from slower to faster. Points are given in descending order (if there are 10 riders, 1st place gets 10 points, 2nd place gets 9 points, etc.) Points go to your season tally.

Course: This 8.7 mile time trial starts out fast, then winds itself north along the Pemi with some good dips, straights, and small hills. The course will start at the Newfound Road/River Road intersection and finish at a pair of marked metal stakes (37 River Road).  We'll be collecting times at the finish, so bring a way to time yourself. 

Course Records:  This is a new time trial for the Series--the first records will be set Tuesday!

The time trial starts at 6pm* at the Newfound Rd/River Rd intersection. If the forecast is questionable, check back here for day-of ride confirmation by 4pm.

Hope to see you there/let us know if you have any questions (comment here or email at mightypemiATgmail).

*We'll ride out to the start from Rhino at 5:00 (meet behind the bike shop).  Feel free to join us on the way over or we'll see you there at 6.

2017 Series

Hey all,

Here's hoping this finds you ready for spring, or, more suitably, that this finds spring ready for you.

We've posted the season course schedule and hope we can get as many rides in as possible.  You'll see that the first time trial up this Tuesday is new for the Series.  Last year, after River Road was paved,  the course seemed to call for it and some riders suggested trying the route.  The winding road should be fun to test out (details/info. for the first TT to follow).

With that River Road Time Trial, we've got eight courses (four TTs and four HCs):

River Road TT          Halls Brook Hillclimb
Short TT                    Ellsworth Hill Road Hillclimb
Route 49 TT              North Groton Road Hillclimb
Long TT                    Stinson Lake Road Hillclimb

As always, we're open to suggestions for changes/additions.  Our goal has been to take advantage of safe courses that are within reasonable riding distance of Plymouth, so if you've got an idea, let us know.

We'll be keeping track of riders' times, points, and all course records as we go along, which can be interesting reference for your season whether you're into it for training or fun.  Bragging rights and hopefully some prizes will be awarded to winners, so come out and ride!

8/30 Stinson Lake Rd Hillclimb results

Great night for a finale climb up the slopes of Stinson Lake.  We had PRs and new-to-the-Series riders (welcome Peter!), so the ride was about as good a way to close the season out as possible.

Andy Havey got up there fastest, followed by Carl Ring and John & Ann closing in.  Aboard the tandem, John & Ann have repeatedly bested themselves throughout the season, including this last PR/CR effort--keep it going!  And congrats to Carl, who remains the points champ for the Series and takes bragging rights into cyclocross season and beyond.  Kudos to Ryanne, women's points champ with bragging rights who also PRed on Stinson and likewise rode stronger and stronger through the Series.  Thanks for coming out everyone.

1) Andy Havey  20:28 5 points
2) Carl Ring  20:36 4 points
3) John Jurczynski & Ann Rasmussen  20:36 (pr + 1)
3) Jordan Greenberg  22:45  3 points
