We are pleased to announce that the QCW Spring Time Trial Series will return to Cleves again in 2013. 

  The purpose of the 33k Time Trial Series is to give our members an opportunity for training at a distance which is greater than what is typically available in this area.  It more closely replicates the distances that you might expect at the District or National Time Trial Championships.  This event is also great experience for road racers who want to improve their skills at breakaways or bridging the gap back to the peloton after being dropped (should that ever happen to any of us!).

In past years, the series was held on the second Saturday of each month from March through June.  PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT, FOR 2013, QCW WILL ONLY BE SPONSORING EVENTS FROM APRIL THROUGH JUNE.

For your information, Colavita will be using the Cleves course for their first scheduled Time Trial Series event on March 9, 2013.  Please visit their website for additional details and cost information. (Please note the information on their webiste refering to their event as being "The Midwest's Best! The Midwest's Largest!" to be a total fabrication on their part, as we all know this claim belongs to the Cleves Tuesday Night Time Trial Series , now in its 40th year.) 

The QCW 33k TT Series will be held at 10:00 AM on the second Saturday of each month as follows:

  1. Saturday, April 13
  2. Saturday, May 11
  3. Saturday, June 8

    William Henry Harrison Tomb State Memorial
    North Bend, OH

This is a simple out and back course which utilizes the same roads as the popular summer Cleves Tuesday Night Time Trial series.  In fact, the start/finish line is the same as the finish line for the Summer Cleves TT series.  There are no traffic signals or stop signs and no possibility of straying off course.  Traffic is very light with speed limits no greater than 35 mph.  This is a flat to moderately rolling course with a maximum gradient of 3-4%.
