Putah Creek Time Trial


This informal, community-run time trial is run every other week starting 12 March 2014 and ending 24 September 2014. Changes in the schedule and other announcements are typically made on the Community email list which is open to the public. To get regular news though, it is best to subscribe to the Putah Creek TT email list. Contact Davis Wheelworks for more information.

When

The Time Trial starts at 6:00 pm every other week during daylight savings time and is free of charge. Please arrive 20-30 min early to sign in. Positions are assigned first come first serve. Remember your assigned position number, because you will be responsible to call it out as you cross the finish line. If you miss your start time you will have to wait until all others have started and the starters will fit you in at the end.  2014 dates are 3/12, 3/26, 4/9, 4/23, 5/7, 5/21, 6/4, 6/11 (40 km), 6/18, 7/02, 7/16, 7/30, 8/6 (40 km), 8/13, 8/20 (40 km), 8/27, 9/10, 9/24.

Where

The start of the course is approximately 100m east from the intersection of Stevenson Bridge Road and Putah Creek Road. The course is flat, 5 miles out, 5 mies back. The turnaround is marked and a volunteer will be there to flag it. The 40km course uses the same course but it is extended.

Parking

Please park your car on Stevenson's Bridge Road as far onto the shoulder as possible. When parking on Stevenson's Bridge Road, park at least 100' away from any driveway. See the map for where to park — green is Ok for parking, red denotes no parking.

Format

Riders are sent off in 30 second intervals. Please stay to the far right of the road — the road is open to traffic. Be especially careful around corners. When waiting to start, or upon completion of the Time Trial, please stand off of the side of the road.
