May 11, 2009 – Ride with Rendall is putting on a team time trial on May 17 that is sanctioned by the OCA. We are trying to bring back an event that has lost some interest over the past few years. Teams of four cyclists compete to see who can complete the distance in the fastest possible time.
All four team time trial members must start together and the time stops after the third team member crosses the finish line. A 20km loop course is situated in the west-end of Ottawa and runs parallel to the Ottawa River (north of Kanata). The course is run in a rural setting passing several farms and large estate homes.
This is a course that will test a team’s ability to work together. Several rolling climbs and two relatively tight turns add to the technical challenge; while one long eastbound straight stretch adds to the team speed.
