Told some of you guys about this tonight on the pretzel ride. I think this info is right. Double-checked with the guy who told me about it, so....

its not really a competition, its more of a way to become faster at time trialing. the guy who does it has a laptop and measures your time over the course of the year to track your progress.

i dont see why you'd be upstaging roadies since they are probably faster than you are anyway

Right on, thanks for the correction.
Upstaging roadies? Nah. I doubt it. Faster than me? Sure. Lots of people are faster than me.
Should still be fun, though.

If I didn't have a wedding to go to, I'd like to try this. Only I would do it on my fully loaded touring bike, ha!

Do you need to commit to it, or can you just show up? Does it cost anything?
