2017 Time Trial Courses:
Note the dates that each course will be used.
River Road (10 km):
One of the perennial favourite courses. Winds along the river. Slightly uphill going out and slightly down coming back.
Highway 130 (20 km)
Start at Whitewater GC entrance and takes Hwy 130 south down to the grass airstrip just before it meets Hwy 61. Good course but can get windy. Pavement has a few cracks and traffic can be busy some nights. Be careful at the turnpoint.
Government Road (10 km) not used at this time
Probably the most popular of all TT courses. Usually quite fast. The road is narrow so watch for cars coming out of driveways. This is the course for personal records.
Hwy 61 to Gillespie (17 km)
New course in 2014. You will probably get your fastest time here since there is more downhill than uphill. Road surface is rough on Candy Mt. Road. Neutral ride out from the Neebing hotel.
Oliver Road (Murillo 15km)
Starts on the outskirts of Murillo and heads west to just after the downhill and the bend where the road heads south. The road can get quite busy so be very careful at the turnaround point.
Hill Climb (Moose Hill 3.4 km)
The consumate hill climb. Although short at a just over 3 km you will red line your heart rate on this one. Enjoy the ride back down to the start line. Course was resurfaced last year. We will need to inspect in the spring to see if it is suitable.
Mapleward Road (7.5 km)
New course in 2014. You can park at either the N Mcintyre Centre, Vanderweese Garden Centre or at the vacant parking lot by Leppanen's store. Neutral ride to the start about 2 km from Dawson where the pavement improves at the base of the hill. Most of the climbing is in the first 5 km.
Candy Mtn. not used at this time
New course added in 2014. We will try to arrange parking again at Belluz Farms. Very short but tough climb.
Lakeshore Drive (32 km)
Traditional long course on Lakeshore Drive. We park at the Bare Point Road and head out and back to the Firehall at the end of Lakeshore. Great paved shoulder but some of the motorists can be troublesome.
