Today seemed to be a day when a certain time-of-day strategy might have gained or lost you a few seconds. I rode around 2 pm and had a pretty decent northerly breeze to contend with. Later in the day, it seemed that it became calmer. Maybe not? Also, the Strava segment time difference was around 16 seconds quicker but since nobody sent me just their Strava time, I didn’t have to add this to anyone’s time. All this training of you folks is paying off!

I did get a report about someone riding the course in a rather dangerous manner (riding past other riders into oncoming traffic) – not good!  Let’s not have this happen again please. The center line rule of road racing applies to our little TT’s as well as other common sense and common courtesies.

I’m kind of loving this new format. Aside from not interacting with most of you in person, I like riding each course at my own pace and at a time of my own choosing. I’ll be curious to get your feedback as well. Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to getting back someday and doing this together.

Here is a link to the series so far:
