Cleves Time Trial Series Starts Next Week


originally posted to the QCW google group: The 2014 Cleves Time Trial Series will start next Tuesday, May the 6th, and continue through the last Tuesday in September, the 30th. This will be the 41st consecutive year the series has been held and for that matter held on the same road all of those years. This has allowed us to accumulate an amazing amount of information including the best times by everyone who has ever ridden the course to the best times for every year to most podium placements to the riders who have been least likely to call out his/her number at the finish. Visit our website to browse through and marvel at the stats. Thanks to Jonathan Spicker for having the patience to keep things in order and for having the sense to not trust me to do it. Some general rules and regulations are worth noting: We do not sell QCW memberships on site so please take care of this as noted on the website. The QCW membership is required to ride the event. Its quite a bargain when you prorate the $20 cost over 22 time trials. Please park at the finish line by the Wm Henry Harrison Tomb. We want to keep the neighborhood where we start open for the residents to park and it never hurts to spend some time in the presence of our 9th president who only spent a little over 30 days in office before falling ill and dying. There's something appropriate about him watching over us at the finish line each week. On-site registration for each Tuesday time trial will start around 6:30 pm at the start line. The first rider will go off around 7:00 pm and we go as close to "this-is-as-fast-as-I-can-go-so-cut-me-some-slack" (no one is actually slow) to "I-really-take-this-much-too-seriously-will-shaved arms-help" order as possible. Riders showing up after the start list has been announced may be placed at the end of the list or may be worked into the list. Depends where we are in the process and what kind of mood we're in. We will have a small group riding at 5:30. This is to allow the people manning the clocks at 7:00 the opportunity to still satisfy their compulsive need (ok, disorder) to ride the course. We do allow a few others to ride at that time (ideally slower so we can pass you) but we need to know ahead of time as we usually only have one person to hold and time and that person is usually riding at 7 so time is limited. Email me directly at if you would like to ride early on any given week. Otherwise its me chasing Dallman and Dallman holding me off. We'll review other rules at the start each Tuesday. Maps to the course along with elevation changes are on the website. Flags and smoke stacks in the area provide all we need to know about wind conditions. Hope to see many of you Tuesday and maybe even Saturday as we test the first 3.7 miles of the course. Peter A. Wimberg
