Each year we hold a 17.4-km time trial every Tuesday evening from May to August, rain or shine – the riders decide whether it’s too wet to race. Open to all ages of cyclists and paracyclists, in aerodynamic and non-aerodynamic (Merckx) categories.
Date: Cancelled for 2022 due to highway construction.
Time: Racing at 7 PM
Location: Start/finish on Lochside Drive at the McTavish Road Interchange (at the east end of pedestrian/bicycle overpass over Highway 17) in North Saanich near Sidney, B.C.
Registration: On-line registration only.
Parking: Time trial participant and spectator parking is in the BC Transit Park and Ride lot on the west side of Highway 17 at the east end of McTavish Road (2095 McTavish Road, North Saanich). Please park in the southernmost part of the lot. Access to the start/finish is via the pedestrian/bicycle overpass across Highway 17. Please do not park at the south end of Lochside Frontage Road at the McTavish Interchange; those few spots are needed for our equipment, first aid, and volunteer vehicles.
A minimum of 3 time trial times per season are required to win a category.
Insurance: Every rider MUST have insurance – a Cycling BC Ride for All or Race License, or an UCI Race Licence. If you don’t have one of these, you must buy one at www.cyclingbc.net. We no longer sell licences at the time trial.
