Also back for 2021!
The bike race designed
for social distancing!
Join our Strava Club. Race our favorite segment, the 10 mile out & back CRANDIC Time Trial along beautiful Sutliff Rd.
Race it whenever, alone or with racers you live with. (Be safe out there!) Race it as often as you'd like. You can even race more than one category. While you're out there get a selfie we can post with results.
Each month - May, June, July, and August - your best times will be culled from the leaderboards for each race category.
If you can't make it to the live race series, or if you aren't ready for a public event yet, you can still race the CRANDIC Social Distancing Time Trial Series!
It's fast, free, and a lot of fun.
Come race your bike!

More About the Time Trial Series
First off, you're own your own out there. Follow traffic laws, be courteous to all, and practice safe social distancing. Take a mask with you just in case.
Familiarize yourself with the CRANDIC TT course. (More details below.)
You are responsible for operating Strava, but as long as it's on your performance on the segment itself will be recorded automatically.
Most TT rules apply -- no drafting, no mechanical assist, etc. One big change this year is that it's okay to make a running start as there's no grumpy USAC official there to stop you (and it makes it more certain that Strava will record the segment).
The course begins and ends at the intersection of Sutliff Rd NE and 140th St NE. Start and finish are marked with double orange lines. At the start you are heading east. Get a running start at it, and go!
Four and a half miles later you'll see the first of two markings: "1/2 mile to turn." The second is "1/4 mile to turn." Those will give you time to check for traffic ahead and behind you. This is very important as there is no marshal there to warn you of approaching vehicles.
The turnaround itself is also marked in orange. Now just back the way you came.
Consider parking at the Cedar River Landing area just east of Sutliff Bridge. That's right in the middle of the TT course, so if you flat or have a mechanical you'll never be more than 2.5 miles from your car.
