Thurs TTT

Post by JohnT » Mon Feb 10, 2020 9:39 am

I just sent this to a UVic project manager. There will be lane closures on the Ring Road this Thursday. The meno I received says they'll get started at 7 AM.

Dear David,

I am a BIOL prof, and also a cyclist. The club I belong to, Tripleshot Cycling, uses the Ring Road on Thursdays for Team Time Trial practise.
We're done by 7 am, but I thought I'd let you know that if you arrive Thursday morning to find the road 'littered' with cyclists, we'll be leaving just as you get started. These practises involve groups of 4 to 6 running in a line (we don't take up much space).

I will let everyone know that they should pay extra care this Thursday.

Cheers,

John

A reply:

Morning Dr Taylor,

Thanks for the heads up, I will let the contractors know you will be out there. Please also let the club know that we will have steel plates down for a while, ultimately in three locations around Ring Road (not all at the same time).

Cheers

TTT updates

1. Steel plates are now in place on Ring Road. They are thick and they didn't have 'mini-ramps' yesterday afternoon.

2. TTT tentatively included in 2020 VCL racing calendar (July 12th).

I will have another look at the Ring Road today, but maybe we need an alternative for a while - major reconstruction at UVic for the next many months (new residence buildings going up). The box would be an easy switch. Another option is a 1/2 Ring Road loop - A little like the Wednesday Hills 'connector' between Sinclair and Mt. Tomlie... I believe that would miss the construction zone.

The July TTT isn't meant only for keener collecting VCL points...... everyone that does Thursdays (and others) should consider entering.
