Thanks for the info. I was making the incorrect assumption that it would be more roadies doing the crit for training; same for Wells AVE.
What's the pace like? I went out there early yesterday afternoon to test myself. The stopwatch on my phone failed me, but I think I did fifteen laps in about 40 or 45 minutes (~22 mph). (That approximation could be off, but I think it's close.) Stupidly, I rode with my full messenger bag on (u-lock, spare clothes, tools, other junk), so I'd like to think I'd be a bit quicker without it. It also didn't help that I ate a full breakfast right before that. Around lap 8 I started to feel thirsty and I was feeling a little sluggish around lap 10, but I powered through it.
The wind on the Drydock AVE stretch was kind of tough. Is it usually like that? I was riding clockwise, out toward the end of the pier on Drydock and then back toward Summer ST on Black Falcon AVE. Does the race go clockwise or counter-clockwise?
