Strava Club Time Trial and Hill Climb Series

You must join our strava club to participate - you can fine more info on our website about the Strava Club.  The races schedule and locations are listed on our Events Calendar

• This is a Time Trial and Hill Climb Series

• Time Trial and Hill Climb will alternate each week for a total of four weeks starting October 10, 2016

• The Series schedule will be posted on our events calendar (Bicycles East website and google calendar). • We plan to announce the “race” segment the week before the “challenge” will be held.  This announcement will be on our Strava club page

• The race is in not-real time.  In other words, you race over the segment on your own time during the schedule week.

• You can race over the segment as many times as you would like…your best time will show up on the Leader Board

• We will filter the Leader board for Club Members only as well as by the date period raced.  We can also separate men and women.
