About This Activity

Find your Critical Power!  The Time Trial will be held in our 13 Person Computrainer studio using a TT Route created on mapmyride.

Each rider will be on their own bike and will be competing against the clock on a course that will mimic riding the course outdoors as to speed, watts, distance, grade and gearing.

It is 7.5 mile course on rolling terrain with grades to 3%.  Riders race on their own bikes on 13 laboratory matched CompuTrainers.  The riders feel exactly the same loads they would feel on the road at the same speed, grade and gear.
If you've never raced a bike, this is a good opportunity to see what it's like. If you are a bike racer it will be excellent indicator of your winter fitness level.
In an indoor time trial the riders line up side by side facing a large screen showing the course profile, each rider's position on the course, and each rider's race data including distance, elapsed time, and instantaneous/average/peak speed and power.
