Anyone interested in an individual time trial on Route 29 early on a Sat morning in August?

The idea is to ride 10 miles at aerobic threshold pace to determine your fitness and compare your time to others. No prizes but bragging rights are available. David Zipf This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

David,
My daughter in her racing years and I would do this every Thursday after school 20 years ago. We would ride to the start from Doylestown as a warm-up and then start at the 26-mile marker and ride North. We would carefully do a "U" turn at the 31-mile marker and ride down back to the 26. We went both directions and that would cancel out head and tail winds.

We didn't have the bike computers of today but the mile markers would be a target every three minutes for a nice average on a fixed gear.

Bringing back old memories. :-)

I used to time trial once a month w the Doylestown Wheelmen and achieved a time of about 26 minutes in the early 90s. I rode almost the same course last month in about 34 minutes after a 30 year break.

The course is scenic and cool in the morning.You can see people on the rail trail and tubers on the river to distract you from the effort of riding hard.

I'm in, are we doing this? If you start around 9, I will have time to ride from Doylestown. What are your thoughts on starting time and location? I will probably ride my fixie.
