The Tuesday Night Race is a handicap pursuit race. Two or three groups, called the ‘A’ and ‘B’ groups, depart on timed intervals depending on turnout and ability levels. The last group tries to catch everyone before the finish. A great way to get in a hard workout, hone your group riding skills and race tactics in a fast and competitive group.
For the beginner riders, we have a group that leaves after the racing groups; this is the ‘C’ group (If there enough riders… 2 riders is not a group). This group is not about winning the evening, but rather to get your feet wet learning the basics of group riding skills (and perhaps some race tactics).
Start time for the West course is 6:30. Start time for the North course (to give extra time to get to the course) is 6:40. A group leaves for both course from the Back Alley of Bike Doctor at 6:00.
Points are awarded 1st thru 5th place towards points series. At the end of the season, there is a wind-up social with Pizza and prizes… always a good time!
There is a mailing list for the Tuesday Night Race info, email Christian – firstname.lastname@example.org – if you want to be added to the list. This is the main way that crucial info and updates are broadcast, and races can be moved or cancelled depending on weather and road work, so we recommend you join the list.
We will offer a follow vehicle. Cycledelia members, please email Christian with the Tuesday that you are volunteering.
*Note: East (aka PCA Mine) Course is not being used until further notice.
