For the second week of the NCC Zwift Fall Hill Climb/Time Trial series, we rode the Park Perimeter Loop in New York City.

The TT course was 6.1 miles with 413 feet of climbing.

All seven riders participated in the group ride. We chatted on Discord before and after the TT.

Charlie, Chris, Dan, Kevin, Melissa, and Zinj earned Strava PRs during the TT lap. Melissa also improved her NCC QOM for the route.

It was great having Chris join the Zwift HC/TT for the first time.

Here are today’s results:

1. Weinman, Kevin; Time: 14:11*; 25.7 mph; 10 points
