MMC sponsors a time trial once a month for cyclists. The course for 2018 has been changed due to bridge construction on Hwy 423. The new route will begin at the intersection of McKenzie Medical Center Drive and Hwy 22.
– Head South down Hwy 22 towards Huntingdon
– Turn Right onto Thompson Road (at approx. 5 miles, just past Chandler Music) —-if you end up in Huntingdon you’ve gone too far (RR tracks approx 1.5 miles down this road, will try to cover with mats)
– Turn Right onto Connie Allen Road (at approx. 11 miles) —-if you end up a the red light in McKenzie you’ve gone too far (RR tracks on this road, too, but are straight on so probably will NOT be covered)
– Finish at Tri County Animal Clinic (13.3 miles) – just before Hwy 22
Of note, it is a little over 2 miles from the TT finish back to MMC. If you prefer to park at the Animal Clinic and drive back that is an option – this will give you a 2 mile warmup to the start . . . Roads have nice pavement other than a few rough spots on Connie Allen – as always keep your head up, ride on the right hand side of the road, and keep safety first. Total distance approx 13.3 miles (be thankful VW found this route because Kirsten found a GREAT one that was more like 17 miles . . . )
Cyclists are lined up based on their speed and started every 15 seconds. The event starts promptly at 6:00 p.m. A timer will record times and they will be presented after the event in the MMC break room. Food and refreshments are provided while the results are presented.
The Proposed Dates for 2018 are:
