We are proud and pleased to announce that the Queen City Wheels Spring Time Trial Series has been re-invented for 2016! 

The purpose of the Spring 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 a gap back to the peloton.

However, do NOT be intimidated into thinking this event is only for serious, experienced racers.  The vast majority of participants (ages 16-65) have never competed in a mass start road race nor do they wish to do so.  They simply use this event to measure improvement in their overall fitness level.  They are competing against their own best efforts!

Events will be held on the 3rd Saturday of the month from March through June.  As in the past, the series will include four events.  However, each Time Trial will now be held on a different course of between 20-30 miles, an out-and-back route on open roads with generally light to very light traffic.  There are no traffic lights and only one stop sign (Bromley course) which will be kept clear by one of our volunteers.  

March 19th – North Bend, OH
April 16th – Melbourne, KY
May 21st – Oldenburg, IN
June 18th – Bromley, KY
