We hold a 17.4-km time trial every Tuesday evening from late April through mid 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: Every Tuesday evening from May 3 through August 16 in 2022
Time: Sign-on at 6 PM, Racing at 7 PM
Location: Registration/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.
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 registration/start/finish is via the pedestrian/bicycle overpass across Highway 17. Please do not park on 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 show proof of insurance – a Cycling for All or Race License, or an UCI Race Licence. If you don’t have one of these, you must buy one at cyclingbc.net and bring it to the time trial. We no longer sell licences at the time trial. Riders without proof of insurance cannot ride the time trial.
