Congratulations to Derek Gee for breaking the course record tonight 2020-Sep-03. The temperature was about 22C and the air pressure optimally low at 100.3kPa, but the winds, which started at 20km/h gusting to 34km/h, were from the worst direction,namely the South. Derek's time was 17:46. This is 6 seconds faster than the previous record of 17:52 which was set by Aaron Fillion on 2012-Jun-07. So now we have two 15km time trials on this course which averaged faster than 50km/h!

Due to COVID-19, this was the first time trial of 2020. It was run a little differently to keep than usual in order to keep the riders and volunteers safe. In particular, only 30 pre-registered riders were allowed, there was no holder, and the riders left in order of expected decreasing speed to try to avoid any passing. By the way, though Environment Canada reported considerable wind at the airport, the winds were calm on the race course - virtually non-existent.

Cool temperatures, a diagonal headwind for the return leg, overcast skies, fading sunlight and subdued, while magnificent fall colours greeted the two riders who presented to the 15 km Almonte Area Time Trial course, Tuesday, September 24, 2019. Marshalling was again handled stoically by the pylon triplets and signage twins, who exerted sufficient effect on passing motorists to yield the riders ample lane room and clearance for the turn around. Celia McInnis registered another epic warmup ride in the 110+ km range. Extra clothing to counter the cool evening air is accepting responsibility for slower times compared to last week. Tonights ride was the last scheduled 15 km Almonte Area Time trial for the 2019 season. Timer Tom Kemp is willing to entertain requests for one additional 15 km time trial on the usual course during the afternoon daylight of Sunday, October 6th. An RSVP(s) will prompt setting a registration time. No RSVPs would equate to no time trial. Riders returning to the Union Hall following this evenings event were treated to a close encounter with a dusk lit dashing deer. Roadies and roasters be wary.

Pleasantly cool temperatures (21C), clear skies, a slight breeze that showed little favour, and humane traffic awaited the two riders who make the trek to the Union Hall at the corner of Wolf Grover Road and Tatlock Road this evening for the Almonte Tuesday time trial. Riders upped their involvement game by in addition to their riding, managing their starts, and following the well labeled course governed by the team of silent sibling marshals: the signage twins, and the pylon triplets. Tom Kemp oversaw the starts, finishes, timing and results, which are: Celia McInnis in 29:18 (displaying sparkling form together with amassing a tad lengthy warm-up ride of 100 Km upon arriving to the start line), preceded by: Tom Kemp in 25:54 (after humbly arriving to the start line following a bare bones minimum warm-up ride of 3+ Kms). The September Game On Almonte mini Time Trial series continues next Tuesday at the Union Hall for what is likely the final can kicking TT of the season (although never say never). Riders are asked to let Tom Kemp know ahead of time of their interest in participating. On site registration and signing in is from 5:45 to 6:00 PM. The first rider will head out about 6:12ish. Volunteers, riders, and cheer leaders are always welcomed! Please arrange to have a car ride back home, or sufficient lights and reflective clothing for after the time trial, as the early sunsets are now pretty much precluding riding home in daylight.

A cool cloudy morning made things tough for the eaarly starters and a northerly crosswind did not make for an easy return. Nonetheless this the final 40 of the season yielded a good crop of sub hour rides and a number of seasonal bests including that of the race leader, Aaron Fillion. Aaron finished over 3 minutes clear of second finisher, Mike Nash. Today's event was graced by the best female showing of the season, led by Jazmine Lavergne, who emerged over a minute clear of second placed Erika Revesz. The annual Awards Banquet will take place at Union Hall on Friday, October, 25th at 6pm Tickets will be available, closer to the date from Les Humphreys.

Warm temperatures and cloudy skies greeted the four riders who showed up to ride the penultimate event of the 2019 series. A nagging crosswind precluded any seasonal bests but all came close. However, after riding over 100 km to get to the start, Celia took a mark made by the highways dept for the turn, and came up short, resulting in a DNF. Final 40k of the season takes place this Sunday, September 8th at the Franktown Christian Academy. Registration takes place at 7:45 am with first rider off at 8:31.

A warm cloudy evening failed to deter the 3 riders who came to the line. A light southwest wind gave way to a calm finish, yielding seasonal bests for all three. Threatened rain failed to materialize and dry roads prevailed. For September, we meet at 6pm instead of 6:30 due to the shortening day.

Sunshine, warming temperatures and barely breath of wind greeted a field of 16 riders on this fourth 40 of the 2019 season. This time it was Rodrigo Diaz dominating the race, almost three minutes clear of second placed Graham Page. Sole female in contention, Celia McInnis posted a 77 minute ride, some 30 seconds behind her July performance. Scratchman Erwan Peres suffered a puncture at the turn and pedalled to the finish on a flat rear tyre. Last 40 of the season takes place Sunday, September 8th at Franktown.

This was not a particularly easy night with winds of 20-26km/h from the WNW, but with increasing fitness levels, 15 out of the 38 who had ridden an earlier OTT event in 2019 improved upon or equaled their previous season series best and ten improved upon their previous database best. Considerably more impressive though was the fact that there were three new category records tonight! Congratulations to Erika Revesz for 9.39% cube speed improvement in the Veteran D Women's Category, Jazmine Lavergne for 5.02% cube speed improvement in the Cadet Women's Category and to Laury Milette for 0.94% cube speed improvement in the Junior Women's Category. Note that last week, Jazmine had tied Katherine Maine's CAF record from 6 years ago, while Erika managed to take 1 second off of Mary Ajersch's record from 18 years ago. This week they took off 43 seconds and 22 seconds, respectively. Meanwhile Laury Milette took 4 seconds off of Katherine Maine's 4 year old JUF record.

Of the 49 finishers tonight, 45 had ridden an earlier 2019 OTT event, and of these 13 managed to improve and 5 to equal their previous season-series best. The remaining 27 of us were slower than our season series best, and if you look at the summary information just below the results after sorting by the "PerfRatio to" "PB Yr-Ser Pre", you will see that the average of these performance ratios is 0.9849. More interesting, if you look at "PerfRatio to" "CB Database Pre" we see one slight improvement (1.0021) in the previous All-time best for the VDF Category by Erika Revesz and a tie (1.0000) in the previous All-time best for the CAF category by Jazmine Lavergne! The previous setters of these category records were Mary Ajersch with one second slower at 24:20 for the VDF category on 2001-Aug-21 (despite crashing off of her bike 1km from the end!) and Katherine Maine on 2013-Jun-27 with the same 22:39 that Jazmine did tonight. Here's to more improvements from these talented and hard-working women!

For the remaining two, Mike was his own timekeeper .

Cold rain accompanied the four riders who braved the weather for the first 49k of the season. Still air afforded some compensation, however, rewarding Craig Burge with a sub hour ride and Dave Dickson with a personal best. The next 40 takes place Sunday, June 30th at Franktown.

Despite winds gusting up to 49km/h from the south and west that increased as the time trial proceeded, making the last kilometer particularly difficult, 20 out of the 29 who had ridden an earlier OTT event in 2019 improved upon their previous season series best. The justification for these improvements was that the air pressure was low at 100kPa abd the temperature, though still far from balmy, was the warmest of the season at 19.8°C. Five of the younger or more inexperienced riders even managed to improve upon their 15km previous database best. Here is a graph showing how those of tonight's riders who have at two OTT results thus far this season are doing, and here is a graph showing the results until now of the riders who improved upon their previous database best.

Tonight, a cool 12.5C with 20km/h winds out of the northeast, was the final 10km WTT event of 2019, and probably all of us who ventured out to ride any of the 10km events are hoping for better weather for the 15km events. We were about 9C colder than what is average for this time of year. Anyway, here is a graph showing the WTT results so far this season, and here is a listing showing the weather conditions and results on each of the nights so far.

The weather has been difficult this May, but at least it is improving! Tonight began with gusts of up to 45km/h off of the river, but it was sunny and 17°C, significantly warmer than the first two events. Six women rode tonight, and the two of us who had ventured out earlier in the series had cube speed improvements of more than 14 and 18 percent! Better yet, Faye Kofoed, our youngest rider who is in her second year of riding WTT events, improved upon her previous 10km database best by 6.11%! Congratulations Faye! Here is a graph showing the WTT results so far this season, and here is a listing showing the weather conditions and results on each of the nights so far. Next week is the final 10km WTT event of 2019. In June we switch to 15km events, so come on out next week if you are a woman (or boy up to the Cadet category) and want to do a 10km time trial.

Under sticky conditions 4 riders showed up for the 16th event of the Almonte 15k series. Ron Ross emerged the winner, some 20 seconds up on Mike Nash. For Mike this was just a warm up for his attempt on the hour record in Mexico City later this month. Lone female, Celia McInnis once again pedaled over 85k (after a tooth extraction) to get there and still finished in under 29 minutes, posting her season's fastest time on this course. She was the only person to improve. Here are the AATT BAR Rankings for those marked as OBC members. The season had been extended by one week to allow more riders to qualify for the BAR, but this one was the very last. BAR winners will be honoured at the Almonte TT Series banquet, to be held at Union Hall on Friday, October 26th. Tickets for the banquet will cost in the range of $30, contact leshum@magma.ca to reserve your spot.

The final event of the Almonte 40k series attracted a field of 24. In warm temperatures and under cloudy skies riders set off into a light westerly wind. Soon after the start, however, the showers began, enough for Michael Coldwell to turn back. The rest of the field continued on but after a lull in the wind it was without the benefit of the latter on their return. Aaron Fillion, after riding to the start from Kanata, turned out a long 52 minute ride, finishing almost a minute clear of Mike Nash. Angela Beauchamp finished first among three females with a 75 minute ride. This event came close but failed to match August's result. High air pressure (102kPa in Ottawa) and rain starting soon after the start made this time trial somewhat slow.

Participants had a great year to enjoy the WTT series - the weather was warm and usually sunny. In all, 34 different women finished a total of 159 races before the Invitational We gave out prize to all who completed at least 5 WTT events and here are the rankings in terms of category. The Ottawa Bicycle Club awarded Ainara Benavente-Babace an OBC jersey as the most improved rider, She improved significantly in each of the 5 rides that she did. A second OBC jersey, donated by Barbara Wilson, was awarded to Margaret King as the most consistent. We hope that everybody had fun and that even more people come out next year to do likewise. We'd like to thank all the businesses, organizations and individuals who donated prizes: Albert Optical, Bushtukah, Celia McInnis, Courtenay Dore (RMT), Eurosports, Full Cycle, Greg Christie's Ski and Sports, Joe Mammas, Kundstadt, Manny Agulnik OK Tours, Mary-Jo Weirweiss, Rebec and Kroes, The Cyclery, Barbara Wilson.

Les Humphreys commented: "Despite calm conditions the 13th event of the Almonte 15k series attracted a field of only 2. However, this was over 100% better than last week, when only the timekeeper showed up in the rain. This week, with support volunteers outnumbering riders by two to one, seasonal bests were recorded by the entire field." Registration for the 15 takes place next week hour earler, at Union Hall at 6:00 pm, with the first rider off at 6:30.

Tonight was a fast night for a time trial - warm (25C) with lowish air pressure (100.9kPa) and light diminishing winds dropping from 8km/h. Six of the nine riders improved upon their season-series best with this year's new riders also improving upon their previous 15km database best.

Thanks go to John Haysom for taking photos and to the volunteers who ran this event. Nice conditions (27C, wind about 10km/h from the west, air pressure 101.2kPa) allowed two to improve upon their season-series bests. Ainara Benavente-Babace​ broke the 40km/h barrier with her 22:40, a database best for her. Margaret King, with 23:33 was 5 seconds off of her previous database best of 23:28 set in 2015. The rest of us may not have improved, but we were there and first in our age categories!

Today's TT was very well attended, a light breeze to the turnaround. The sun really started to bake riders on the return leg. Note that every rider who had ridden a previous AATT this season improved upon their season series best, and that even includes improvements over the first time trial where most of our times were a recorded as about a minute faster than they really were!

Tonight was 27C with fairly high air pressure of 101.7kPa and diminishing light winds from the SSE. Nine women came out to ride. It was nice to have Joan Haysom back at the WTT after a 16 year absence and great that she brought along her Cadet daughter Alexandra Phaneuf. We also welcomed another new rider - Mary-Jo Weirweiss. For those who had ridden previous WTT events this season, Carrie McKinnon managed a 3.11% cube-speed improvement upon her database best, while Margaret King and Lucie Tremblay posted small season series improvements.

The threat of rain at the 8th event of the Almonte 15k series reduced the field to 2. A strong tailwind at the start promised a tough return but it had died down by the time riders got to the turn. Mike Nash nonetheless managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory when his electric shift left him with a chain riding between chainrings, thus depriving him of a seasonal best. Jim Tselemos, starting earlier, failed to gain advantage from the lull in the wind, finishing over 30 seconds off last week's result. Registration for the 15 takes place at Union Hall at 6:30 pm, with the first rider off at 7:11. For more information, contact leshum@magma.ca or call les at 613-256-2498.

Winds from the NNW gusting to 46km/h at the Ottawa airport, and maybe higher on our course, made it too dangerous for some of us to stay on our aero bars tonight. Eight women rode and only one, Dianne Marleau, improved upon her season-series best. Perhaps the lowish air pressure (100.7kPa) helped, here for a graph of how tonight's participants have done in the 15km WTT events so far this season.-->

There may be some corrections in these results. We did not have a birth year for Eileen Toner, there were some re-orderings on the start line, and all but one one A number calculation was inconsistent with what was on the sheets...

It was sunny, warm (33C), dry (humidity 29%) and the winds were moderate at about 14km/h from the west, but the high air pressure (102.4kPa) made most of us considerably slower than we have been riding recently. Congratulations go to Barbara Wilson, back from a trip out west, for improving upon her season-series best, and to Margaret King for having all four of her 15km WTT finishing times within 5 seconds of each other!

The 5th event of the Almonte 15k series attracted a field of 5. A light wind made for easy riding in both directions, resulting in improvements for Avery Burdett and a strong first ride for Tom Kemp. For Mike Nash, the evening was one of disappointment, due to a 1 min 59 sec late start which would have given him a new course record had he reached the start on time. For your interest, here are the top ten times so far in this series.

Tonight was a fine night for a time trial - warm (about 25°C), sunny and with relatively light, 11-14km/h, winds from the SouthWest. Eleven women came out to ride tonight, and all but one posted a season-series best tonight. Congratulations to Tamsin Douglas for having the biggest series-season improvement with her 32.77% cube-speed increase from her June 5 ride. Also exciting are the large neck-in-neck 8.16% and 8.15% cube speed improvements for our oldest and youngest riders tonight. Jean Cooper is within a few weeks of her 75th birthday, and it is remarkable that year after year, for close to 3 decades, her yearly bests have kept quite constant! On the other end of the age scale, Faye Kofoed, turned 13 just before the start of the season and is new at riding time trials. Tonight she was only 14 seconds shy of the 30km/h average speed mark! We will all cheer her on in the coming weeks to see her reach this level.

This result differs from the times announced verbally last week as they failed to include a 25 second delay caused by your timekseeper punching the wrong button. All times other than that of first rider home, Mike Nash are so affected. Registration for the 15 takes place at Union Hall at 6:30 pm, with the first rider off at 7:11.

The first event of the Almonte 40k series attracted a field of sixteen. A westerly breeze afforded light resistance on the outward leg. At the head of the pack it was a close contest between Ron Amos and Mike Nash,while, among the ladies it was a closely fought battle between Dianne Marleau and Kody McDonald. These are the corrected times (after some problems with the clock were understood).

It was cold tonight, 13-14C and although our volunteers on the course kept dry, the riders were hit with localized rain showers on the return leg. Luckily the air pressure was low (100.5kPa) and the winds, which assisted us on the way out, dropped on the way back. Needless to say four out of the six of us were quicker in this first 15km WTT of 2018 than we were in any of the earlier 10km events. Good riding all!

The temperature was cool at less than 15C and there was some light rain on the way to the time trial, but fortunately it dried up before the race began. Nine competitors and two dads, who were pulled along by their youngsters, did the event. Six riders bettered their season series best and congratulations go to Prapti Jensen for leading this group with an 11.68% improvement in her cube speed. It was great to have Lucie Tremblay back after a two season absence. You may see a graph of all of the results so far in the 2018 WTT series by clicking here.

It was cool with gusty winds mostly from the North, but it was bright and sunny. Many riders who were out the last couple of weeks said they found tonight to be slow. You can see those with season-series bests and get an idea of how much they improved by looking at the by looking at the Performance Ratio column.

Les Humphreys commented: "Perfect conditions prevailed for the record turn out of 10 riders who who showed up to start the last 15 k of the season on Tuesday September 12th." Celia McInnis added: It was my intention to ride this final time trial of 2017 faster than last week, but alas due to having a flat en route, the wrong size spare tire (my TT bike has 650 tires and my spare was 700!), and a crash when the now unglued (after the attempted flat tire change) rolled off of the rim, my speed was closer to that of the turtle! My left ankle was badly swollen and painful (an xray a few days later showed that I had broken it!!!), and there were abrasions and pain in various other parts (especially a rib or two) on the left side of my body where I hit the ground. Oh well, thanks go to Fred Guerer for lending me a bike to at least ride the event. Ouch!!! Half of tonight's riders improved upon their season series best, and Dave Dickson had the distinction of setting a database personal best with his 23:56. Here is a graph showing all of the performances in the AATT 15km and 40km time trials this year, and here is one showing the best 15km and best 40km AATT of this year's participants ordered by the average of the average speeds. Good riding everybody, and many thanks to the volunteers who made this series happen! We are hopeful that someone will take on the organization of this excellent series e=next year. I will gladly look after the results.

This was the final event of the 2017 WTT series. Participation this year was very low, probably largely due to the abysmal weather conditions through much of the series. It started off with a temperature of 5.6C, continued on with winds gusting to 53km/h, to rain and often more rain. We had two cancellations due to warnings of severe thunder storms and even tornados! Next year will be the 30th anniversary and, whether or not the weather cooperates, we're hoping to increase the participation! Thanks to all the volunteers and riders who were sturdy enough to ride this year. Here is a graph showing how people did in the pre-Invitational, and Here are the rankings for those who managed to do at least 5 WTT events this year with at least 4 of them being 15km WTT events.

The winds were calm enough to allow 3 of the 7 riders to improve upon or tie their season-series best. To see how everyone has done so far in the 2017 WTT series, click here. Next week is a regular WTT, but the following week, Tuesday August 29, is the annual WTT Invitational in which OCA insured men may ride as well, as long as they are on a team containing a woman. Generally people add to the fun by making up a name for their team. You can see team names which have been used in the past by clicking here. If you plan to ride, you can ?subject=[WTT Invitational] '>pre-register your team and team name and indicate whether you plan to come over to Grace O'Malley's afterwards for the WTT awards banquet.

Five women and 2 PEEWEE boys (tugging along their dads) rode today's time trial under sunny skies, diminishing winds, a temperature of 23C and air pressure of 101.5kPa. I (Celia McInnis) was the only one to have a season-series or season best tonight - likely due to the end of the chamber music festivals which left time for a much needed massage by my excellent Chinese doctor! Here is a graph showing how we have done so far in the WTT series this season, and here, especially for the benefit of the boys, is a graph showing how tonight's participants did so far in either the WTT or OTT series.

Thanks go to the brave photographer, Rob Sullivan, for daring to be close enough to us at the turn-around to catch our facial expressions. Luckily everyone had good enough control over their twitchy TT bikes to not collide with him!

Anne-Marie Carter-McAuslan comments: Cool temperatures did not deter 22 riders for the third OBC 40 km time trial of the season. A variable WSW wind with skies, a temperatures in the 12 to 19 C range. All riders finished including Jacques Morvan who flatted at 100 meters from the finish but managed to do a Froome finish running to set a reasonable time. Donald MacDonald, Mark Sherboneau, Gabriel Song, Mark LeBlanc attempting the course for the first time. Again, despite the wind and cool conditions 2 course bests, and 1 season best time on the day. I have used Celia McInnis' database to make these conclusions. The next 15km time trial will be on the Clayton Road course August 8th, 2017 with sign in at 6:00pm at Union Hall and the watch starting about 630 pm. The next 40km time trial on the Perth road course will be held on September 3rd, 2017 with sign in starting at 7:45am. Volunteers needed for this TT. Please respond to this email.

The time trial was held under overall good conditions with a clear sky, temperature of 21C, and calm air. Five riders started and finished. Dave Dickson continues to get used to his bike and got a personal best time. Karen Byskov, Mark Miller, and Scott Smithson achieved season best times. The next 15km time trial will be August 1. Please note that sign in and the watch starting will be one half hour earlier than last week. Sign in will start at 6:00pm with the watch starting at 6:30pm. Also note that if Tatlock Road remains unpaved and still under re-construction between Union Hall and Clayton Road, then the sign in will be at the time trial start location on Clayton Road. The next 40km time trial will be held August 6, sign in at 7:45am in the Calvary Christian Heritage School parking lot just south of Franktown on Hwy. 15. The watch will start at 8:15am. Please let me know if you plan on riding this event before Saturday August 5 so we have a rough idea of how many to expect. Volunteers are needed for this 40km event so let me know if you can help out.

It looks as if the memory card which I gave to Morley Dore for photos of the WTT failed, so I'll have to get him to send me the pictures from his camera's memory. Meanwhile, here are some pictures which ended up in the memory of my camera earlier in the day.

High air pressure (more than 102 kPa) should have, but didn't slow all of us down, perhaps because at lease we had brilliant sunshine and light winds! We were pleased to have one new rider, Cheryl Bush, out tonight, and we'd love to have many more out to enjoy this series!

Torrential rain fell at 15:00, leaving big puddles en route to the time trial. Four women felt lucky enough to show up, but when rain began to fall just after the clocks were started, one withdrew, leaving just the stubbornest three. Rain gear likely slowed Karen as much as "Music & Beyond" slowed me. Jean on the other hand had a season-series best. Jean is exceptional in the consistency of her 15km yearly best WTT results over the past 28 years.

Anne-Marie comments: Promise of better conditions than during the June event brought out 19 riders for the second 40km time trial of the season. Indeed conditions were better with mostly clear skies, a temperature in the low 20s, and gentle westerly winds. Eighteen riders finished. Chris Mullington, attempting the course for the first time, unfortunately punctured and could not finish. There must have been something in the air as there were 8 personal best times, 2 course bests, and 1 season best time on the day. I have used Celia McInnis' database to make these conclusions. There will be a 15km time trial on the Clayton Road course July 11, 2017 with sign in at 6:30pm at Union Hall and the watch starting about 7:00pm. The next 40km time trial on the Perth road course will be held on August 6, 2017 with sign in starting at 7:45am.

There were considerable gusts of wind from the SSW tonight which seemed quite difficult, at least when riding a hybrid bike! Forty-three of the fifty-seven participants who had ridden earlier in the series this year were slower than their season-series best, and the average Performance Ratio relative to previous season-series cube speeds was .9482.

Nine women came out to ride tonight's WTT event. The air pressure was higher at close to 102kPa, but it was sunny, warm enough (25C) and calm enough with diminishing winds from the Northwest to allow all but one of tonight's riders to improve upon their 2017 15km best.

It was cool at 15C and the dark sky showed rain in neighbouring areas, but we were fortunate to have virtually no wind and absolutely no rain during the time trial. Only four women showed up to ride, but the two of us who had already done a WTT 15km event this season both improved upon our season-series best. Fastest of the evening was MINIME (turn 13-14 years in 2017) rider Jazmine Lavergne at 25:52. This was just her fourth 15km time trial ever, the first two as part of a team with her sister Stephanie Sothcott, and she has improved significantly each time. Good riding, and great help from our volunteers who did everything from photographing to emergency bicycle repairs in addition to more normal time trial assistance duties.

Yet another tough Tuesday time trial with winds gusting from the WSW at about 40kph. Nine women rode the event, and four actually managed to equal or improve upon their previous season-series best - probably benefiting from the lowish air pressure and taking full advantage of the wind speed on the outward leg of the course. Here is a graph showing ho w tonignt's participants have done so far this season. There was a fair amount of motor traffic tonight which delayed several riders at the turn-around - Dianne Marleau being the most inconvenienced. More worrisome this season has been the number of men that have started riding in close proximity to WTT participants during the event. This interferes with our race. We don't really want to waste air during the time trial asking these men not to draft off of us, or worse yet to give us a draft off of them, especially when such a communication is not even heard by a rider who is plugged into some motivational fortissimo piece of music!

Apart from the 30+km/h gusts from the South (side winds!), it was a nice morning for a 40km time trial - warm and low air pressure, The wind were the most difficult for us on the way out with several riders indicating that their return speed was five to ten times faster than their E RESth first leg. The results shown below, are not official, It was difficult to dcipherpher the penmanship, so there may be some updates.

The weather forecast was "iffy" (predictions of thunderstorms), but 46 people showed up to ride tonight's TT. The wind was from the ENE gusting to 32km/h, so the return trip was quick. Fastest man of the night was Derek Gee at 18:44 - even without all his aero gear! - and fastest woman was Karol-Ann Canuel with 19:46 which was good for 4th overall. Of the 37 participants who had completed an earlier 15km TT this year in this series, 18 (almost half) improved upon their previous season-series best. As well, 8 people improved upon their 15km previous database best! Special congratulations go to Carson Miles and John Vincent Corpuz. Carson Miles is in his first year as a junior, and his times have come down precipitously in his five seasons of riding - from 27:39 in his 13th year to tonight's 19:21. John Vincent Corpuz only began doing time trials last year, and tonight was the first time that he broke through the 40km/h barrier. Way to go!

Nine women came out to ride under sunny skies. The wind, mostly from the north, slowed us down virtually every where, but the temperature (24-25C) was about double what we had last week, and this allowed the three of us who also rode last week to go faster.

A nice evening - sunny, warm enough (25°C) and not too windy (less than 15km/h) drew out 65 riders. The fastest woman of the night was Karol-Ann Canuel with an impressive 19:33 (46.036km/h). She was just 8 seconds off of the women's course best of 19:25 which she set last June 16 under slightly more difficult conditions. Only Derek Gee was faster tonight with his time of 18:50 (47.788km/h). He was farther off of his database best of 18:07 which was set on 2016-Aug-18, but he had the energy to go out for another lap of the course afterwards! Thirty-one of the forty-four who had already participated in this series this season improved upon their previous season-series best, while fifteen out of the sixty riders who had done a previous 15km time trial managed to improve upon their previous 15km database best. Congratulations, and welcome to the five riders who enjoyed their first OBC 15km time trial!

The first 15km TT of the 2017 WTT season was tonight. Much of the day was accompanied by rain showers, but magically the skies dried just in time for our time trial. Thank goodness, because it was pretty chilly at 12°C. Likely this is why nobody improved upon their best speed of the season. Here is a graph showing how tonight's riders have done so far in the 2017 WTT season. We're hoping for warmer, sunnier conditio ns to draw out more women. Detais are at http://ottawabicycleclub.ca/wtt, if you are interested.

The big change from last year is that for 2017 the Lanark County time trial series is now part of the OBC time trial program. The first in this series for 2017 was held June 6 on the Clayton Road course. Details of the scheduling of the Lanark series can be found in the calendar on the OBC website (ottawabicycleclub.ca). Seven riders started and finished. Despite cool conditions (10C) with gusty easterlies prior to the start, it was calm on the course with clearing skies during the event. Fastest on the night was Mike Nash. Young rider Chad Dempsey has returned to do time trials for a second year. Three riders, Pamela Ross, Ron Ross, and Brendon Gorman did the course for the first time. Scott Smithson was welcomed back to time trialling after an 8 year hiatus. The next Time Trial will be on June 13 starting at 7:00 pm with sign in starting at 6:30pm. The first 40 km Time Trial is on June 18th, meeting at Franktown at the Christian Academy School Parking lot at 7:45am for sign-in with the watch starting at 8:15am. Please contact Les Humphreys (613 256 2498 or leshum@magma.ca ) before the 18th if you intend to ride this time trial.

It may have been a little windy, not to mention 7°C cooler than average for the first day of June, but the rain elsewhere in the region kept off of the time trial course tonight. These optimal-enough conditions drew out 40 people - two and two-thirds times the number (15) who endured last week's wet, windy cool conditions. Nine of those who played last week's challenging game might still be recovering, but the six of us who came back for more all were faster this evening. In fact, tonight's average performanceratio for riders relative to their previous season-series best was 1.0147, despite whatever mishap caused Dan Markel to be about seven and a half minutes slower than his Good Friday TT. Here is a graph showing how all of tonight's riders have done this year in this series.

Of the thirteen women who rode tonight's time trial, 5 were doing their first WTT event of the season. Conditions were a little slower than last Tuesday - season-series improvements were only had by those who only rode in one of the first two hellish WTT events. Here is a graph showing how we have done thus far in the series.

With a temperature that was 14°C warmer than last week's chilly 5°C, and winds that were 46km/h calmer than the season-opener's 50km/h gusts, 57% more women rode tonight's time trial. Those who had weathered the earlier WTT challenges this year had an average performance ratio of 1.3012 relative to their earlier WTT races! That is saying that if conditions were identical, tonight's speeds would correspond to about a 30% higher power output, or alternatively tonight was about 30% easier! Yes, the conditions were pretty awful the previous two weeks!!! I had the distinction of being the most improved with a ratio of 1.4671! Here is a graph showing how people have done so far. If you are a woman, we'd love to see you out riding in this series. The great thing about time trials is that it doesn't matter how fast or how slow you are. It's a race of you against the clock, with the added incentives of trying to catch the slower riders who start ahead of you, or to not be caught by the faster riders who start behind you. The environment is supportive and fun. Information is available at http://ottawabicycleclub.ca/wtt. Note that young males (who turn 16 or less this year), and people of both genders with disabilities are also welcome to ride.

With virtually no wind and absolutely no rain, conditions were practically ideal for those who like it cool - in this case 11°C. This was reflected in the cube-speed (power-related: air resistance goes up with the square of the speed and rolling resistance like the speed) improvements relative to previous season-season personal bests. Only 3 of us did not improve upon our previous season-series best, and the average improvement was 7.36%. Congratulations to the fourteen people who improved upon their previous 15km database bests! There were a considerable number of constructions signs near the start of the time trial, and I'm not at all sure what was meant by the peculiar one that read "DANGER DUE TO DROWNING"!

Last week was cool(12C) and windy (gusting to 50km/h) but with favourably low air pressure (99.8kPa). This week was colder (less than 6C) and with higher air pressure (101.8kPa) but virtually no wind. Again 7 women were tough enough to ride. Of the four who rode both events, three improved and the fourth was only 5 seconds slower. Congratulations to Barbara Wilson for being the most improved (a cube-speed improvement of 27.70%!), and to the rest of us for showing up and riding under the chilly conditions. Here is a graph showing how we have done so far this season. Lets hope for hospitable conditions in all regards next week - How about sunny and hot with low air pressure and no wind?

With the endless predictions of rain, I brought the waterproof little Nikon camera tonight. It did a great job for the still-life photos, and perhaps even better for high speed finish-line pictures, if you favour impressionistic looking art shots! Maybe you can recognize yourselves, evaluate your form, accept congratulations for your awesome speeds, and as always, have a good chuckle!

It wasn't cold enough (10-11°C) or windy enough (gusting to 40-50km/h) to scare away seven riders and an equal number of others who either volunteered or watched. The chilly southerly gusts of wind were tricky, but thankfully the cold showers only started after the event! To get some idea of the event difficulty, we can look at how unimpressive the cube speed ratios are for riders between tonight and their database-best speed (on average .5313), or a little less severely, relative to their best WTT speed last year (on average .6619). We probably only did as well a we did because of the optimally low air pressure of 99.8kPa! Yet the two of us who also rode this years high-pressure (103.2kPa) low-wind (0-10km/h) Good Friday Time Trial were slower today - the fact that I was "close" was only a byproduct of stripping the flowers and bunnies off of my bike and helmet!

Many thanks to Jade Lavergne for taking pictures during the event.

Fifty-two riders came out to enjoy the 2017 Good Friday season opener under sunny skies, calm winds and temperatures near 12°C by race end - great conditions apart from the very high air pressure of 103.2kPa! Remarkably, there were two improvements upon previous database bests - Congratulations to Martin Skody and Alex Martins for this honour. Even more impressive was MINIME Jazmine Lavergne's first solo time trial. She had previously ridden in the 2014 and 2015 Good Friday Time Trials with her sister Stephanie Sothcott, and has improved by more than 3 minutes each time! The fastest men of the event, Rod Diaz (20:32), Joel Katz (20:42) and Craig Burge (21:41) were happy with being able to sustain high power outputs throughout the event. Joel, who had the highest cube speed ratio of the three relative to his 2016 best at 92.02% actually surpassed his maximum power output from last year. This shows the effect of the high air pressure, as does the average performance ratio of .8375 for riders' results today relative to their best last year. For the women, the average performance ratio was a little lower at .8096, but the flowers and bunnies on my bike likely accounted for all of this difference, as can be seen by looking at the average (below the results) of .8366 when I have been filtered out of the results. The fastest three women, Robyn Hardage (23:35), Layla Prieur (23:54) and Lisa Meyer (24:14) rode at 80.63-86.06% of their 2016 cube speed best.

On September 20th, 2016, 7 riders started and finished the 19th and final time trial of the season. Weather Conditions at the start were sunny, 24C and with winds of 20km/h from the West-SouthWest adding to the difficulty of the return leg. The fastest rider was Joel Katz, out for his first ride on this course, and the first ABC rider was Mark Miller. Martin Deschamps not only improved upon his seaon-series best from last week's event (in which he lost time with a derailed chain at the start), but he also posted a personal course best. The rest of tonight's Clayton-experienced riders were well off of their bests, but Chad Dempsey might have been less so if he had not crashed at the turn-around with his new clip-in pedals. Next year we'll look forward to significant improvements for him. For your interest, here is a graph showing how today's participants have done in the 2016 Clayton Road time trials so far, whereas here is a graph showing all of the Clayton Road times so far in 2016. Congratulations to Michael Coldwell and Anne-Marie Carter McAuslan for topping the 2016 ABC BAR Rankings which are based upon best times for one ABC 40km time trial and three ABC 15km time trials. As well, here's a graph showing the consistency of ABC riders 15km and 40km results for the ABC BAR. It's especially interesting that Les and Anne-Marie had faster speeds in their best ABC 40km time trial than in their best 15km ABC time trial! Way to go!!! Many thanks to all of the volunteers who helped run this series! Please note that the Awards Dinner will be on Friday, October 28 2016 at Union Hall. Details to follow.

On September 6th, 2016, 8 riders started and finished the 17th time trial of the season. Weather Conditions at the start were sunny, 29C and calm, ideal for a September time trial. The fastest rider was Mike Nash. The first ABC rider was Michael Coldwell with a time of 25:09. Chad Dempsey rode on his own and posted a Course Best despite having to stop for a car at the turn. Mark Miller did manage to get to the start on time despite tire tube issues, seemingly a continuation of the streak of valve-faulty tubes from the previous week. Celia adds: The last column indicates how those of tonight's riders who have already ridden a Clayton Road TT in 2016 did relative to their previous season-series best. The EvtFactor shown in the header line of the results gives an idea of how people did, on average, relative to their season-series best.

The fourth 40km ABC time trial of the season on Perth Road was completed on September 4th, 2016. Twenty-one riders started and 20 finished. Conditions were good for the time of year; sunny, temperature rising throughout the event to 18C at the end, and calm air. Aaron Fillion was the fastest overall rider with a time of 51:39. The fastest ABC rider was Michael Coldwell. Celia McInnis was the fastest female rider. Using databases kept by Celia McInnis and John Warren, there were three personal bests and one course best. One rider did not finish due to a flat on the return leg. Welcome to Andrew Gustyn who completed his first 40km time trial. Thank you to all riders and volunteers who made this a successful 40 km time trial season. The next 15km time Trial will be held at Union Hall ( corner of Tatlock and Wolf Grove Roads) on September 6th with the watch starting at 6:00 pm and sign in from 5:30 pm. NOTE THAT THIS IS ONE HALF HOUR EARLIER THAN IN AUGUST.

Thanks to John Cooper for taking pictures while I was time trialling with our usual paparazzo Morley Dore. Thanks as well to all of the other volunteers who make this event a pleasure to participate in regardless of any weather challenges!

Tonight we had cloudy skies with 13km/h winds from the south-southwest, a temperature of 23.5C and air pressure of 101.5kPa. Rain was predicted, but fortunately did not materialize. This was the final time trial of the Women's Time Trial series, and people with OCA insurance were invited, or could invite themselves to ride on a team so long as there was at least one woman on the team. The rider turnout was small - 14 people spread over 8 teams, perhaps because of the prediction of rain to start during the time trial. Fortunately no rain materialized, letting participants and volunteers enjoy the event and arrive at the awards dinner afterwards dry. Here are the links for the 2016 WTT rankings and category rankings (which are also always listed at the bottom of the weekly result pages). Note that the "most improved" rider this year was determined to be Penny Carmichael. Since the prize for the most improved is substantial (an OBC kit), we put some effort into making a good choice. First of all, look at the following graph showing all of the results, sorted by date, for the women who are eligible for WTT awards (namely those who rode at least 4 WTT events with at least 3 being 15km WTT events). A number of factors lead to first limiting the most improved down to two women: Margaret King and Penny Carmichael: a string of successive improvements as the season proceeded (a longest string of 4 successive improvements for Margaret and a longest string of 5 successive improvements for Penny). the first attempt was quite a bit slower than the last attempt (34.351km/h to 38.190km/h for Margaret and 30.201km/h to 33.687km/h for Penny). whether all-time PBs were set - Both Margaret and Penny set personal database bests for 10km while just Penny also set a 15km personal database best. the span of time over which the improvements occurred. Margaret's large improvement between her 10km rides and her 15km rides was less surprising when we consider that there was more than a month between them, whereas Penny rode multiple WTTs betweem May 3 and July 12. However the graph doesn't give sufficient information to really determine who was the "most improved", because we had some VERY difficult evenings where nobody improved. I do measure "Event Factors" which can help to give some more information. See this chart which is sorted by the "Event Factor" for each rider. Noting that a higher event factor means a "slower" night, we see that Penny's second ride was on a more difficult night than Margaret's second ride, and hence Penny did not improve for her second ride whereas Margaret had a substantial improvement on a much easier night, thus artificially inflating her average performance ratio. Because of points 1, 3, 4 and 5, I would say that the numbers favour Penny Carmichael as the "most improved".

On August 23, after a two week break due to inclement weather, 8 riders started and finished the 15th time trial of the season. Conditions at the start were sunny, 26C, with 10 to 15 km/hr SW winds which seemed to abate somewhat during the event and which may have contributed to some excellent results. The fastest rider was Mike Nash, who despite a car being an impediment at the turn, posted a almost season's best and was the fastest on the night. The fastest ABC rider was Mike Coldwell with a course best. Of note is Bill's excellent time for his first TT since an accident took him out of the time trial schedule for a month. We will also like to acknowledge the PB of Luc Angers. Sadly for us Luc will be leaving next week and will not be around for a year to do local time trials. He will be off to university, first to McGill then to Denmark. Good luck to him in his studies. Celia adds: Note that Luc Angers has improved with each attempt (in 2015 and 2016) on the Clayton Road course, with a phenomenal improvement of 32.19% in his cube speed this week! A huge congratulations to you Luc!!! Meanwhile, here is a graph showing how all of today's riders have done in the 15km ATTs thus far for the 2016 season and here is a graph showing all of the 15km ATTs so far this season. As well, here are the current ABC BAR rankings and a graph showing the ABC rider consistency for their BAR results.

Tonight we had cloudy skies with strong (up to 33km/h) southwest gusty winds from the southwest, a temperature of 26.4C and air pressure of 102.0kPa. This resulted in their being no season-series bests for any of the 10 participants tonight, though half of us attained more than 93% of our best cube speed of the season and series. For your interest, here is a graph showing all results so far this season. Check out the category rankings for those who have done at least 5 WTT events, at most one of which can be a 10km result and the category rankings for those who have done at least 4 WTT events, at most one of which can be a 10km result. A decision will be made on how many WTT events must be ridden in order to qualify for prizes. Now all that remains is the WTT Invitational on Tuesday Aug 30 2016 at 18:00 (with an awards dinner afterwards if you are interested). Anybody (male/female/other) with OCA insurance may participate on a team as long as there is at least one woman on their team, It's a lot of fun, especially if you give a fun name for your team! To see some of the past team names, have a look at these entries. Note that there is an awards dinner afterwards for the WTT series if you are interested in attending.

Tonight we had sunshine with strong (up to 33km/h) gusty side winds mostly from the south, a temperature of 32C and air pressure of 101.8kPa. Thirteen women rode tonight's time trial and five improved upon their previous 2016 WTT best 15km. For your interest, here is a graph showing how all of today's riders have done in the WTTs thus far for the 2016 season. Congratulations to Marie Claire Brisbois (new this year to the WTT series and trying out a skin suit for the first time!) and especially to Candace Anderson, in her fifth year of WTT participation, for also improving upon their previous database best for 15km. For your further interest, here is a graph showing all results so far this season. Check out the category rankings for those who have done at least 5 WTT events, at most one of which can be a 10km result and the category rankings for those who have done at least 4 WTT events, at most one of which can be a 10km result. It has not yet been determined how many WTT events you need to ride in order to qualify for the prizes, so it might be good to aim for doing at least 5 WTTs including at most one one 10km WTT event.

Twenty-two participants rode and finished today, and there were many noteworthy performances. All but one (with a really good excuse) who had already ridden a 2016 ABC time trial improved upon their previous season-series best, while 11 out of 14 improved upon their previous database course best and 11 out of 17 improved upon their previous 40km database best over all courses! For your interest, here are graphs showing how today's participants have done in the 2016 Franktown-Perth-Franktown time trials so far, in all of the Franktown-Perth_Franktown time trials to date and all 40km time trials in my database so far. The ABC BAR rankings require three Clayton Road 15km time trials and one Franktown to Perth 40km time trial. The total time taken (i.e., the average speed for the 85km total) is used for the ranking - and here are the ABC BAR results. Finally, it is interesting to look at the consistency of people's ABC best three 15km speeds and best 40km speed.

Seven women rode tonight's time trial and two liked the Easterly breeze enough to have slight improvements upon their previous season-series best. Nobody improved upon their previous 15km database best, but congratulations to Linda Lafrance for tying her best from two years ago. This was Linda's fourth time trial ever, and she has done two at 26:00 and two at 26:02 - How's that for consistency! Look at the low standard deviation of her average speed given below the graph! For your interest, here is a graph showing how all of today's riders have done in the WTTs thus far for the 2016 season and here is a graph showing all results so far this season.

On August 2nd, 10 riders started and finished the 13th time trial of the season. Conditions at the start were sunny, 28C, with a light easterly wind. The fastest rider was Mike Nash with a season's best and the fastest ABC rider was Michael Coldwell. There were two course bests by Larry Burge and Luc Angers. For Larry, his time tonight is only 8 seconds slower than his database best time ever which was set in 1999 on the easier OBC Rockliffe Parkway course! The Club would like to welcome Dave Dickson, of Pakenham, for his first ever 15 k time trial. Thank you to Les Humphreys for shadowing Chad Dempsey who because of bike issues started late. His unoffical time was 30:20. Please note, that next 15km Time Trial will be on August 9th with the watch starting at 6:30pm and with sign in starting at 6:00.

Nine women rode tonight's time trial and two improved upon their season-series best despite the best efforts of the northwest winds to slow us on the return leg. Here is how tonight's riders fared relative to their previous 15km database best. Here is a graph showing how all of today's riders have done in the WTTs thus far for the 2016 season and here is a graph showing all results so far this season. We welcomed one new rider, Marie Claire Brisbois. She managed to come in first overall with 23:48, fully recovered from a couple of years of hamstring injuries. When asked if she injured her hamstrings in the usual way from running, she joked that the injury was more a byproduct of finishing off her PhD - too much time sitting still doing her research while trying to maintain her former cycling fitness!

This was a tough night with gusty, southerly side winds, so congratulations to the 16 people who managed to improve upon their season series best. It was exciting to see a side by side sprint to the line by the fastest woman Karol-Ann Canuel and the fastest man Marc Brazeau who has started 30 seconds behind. They received the same elapsed time. Marc was first overall in the time trial with 19:16 (3 seconds off of his best) while Karol-Ann was tied with Glen Rendall for second overall with 19:46 (19 seconds off of her women's course record of 19:25). Good riding!

Only eight women showed up to ride tonight's time trial. Nobody improved upon their season-series best though three of us had exellent excuses for not doing so! Linda Lafrance and Margaret King missed their starts and hence got no official time whereas Jim Glover brought my TT bike but forgot my shoes. I tried riding my TT bike with my sandals, but found the little SPD pedals far too slippery, and so decided it would probably be faster and safer, not to mention more fun (and a heck of a lot more work!) to ride my Yuba Mundo cargo bike. My legs were pretty dead after averaging a bit more than 25km/h for the TT! There was one new rider, Tesia Bryski, who enjoyed this event a few hours after purchasing a brand new bicycle. She was 3rd overall at 26:15, behind 2nd place rider Sandra Bender with 24:14 and 1st place Lisa Meyer who did 22:37.

Warm and sunny conditions drew 13 women out to today's time trial, but diminishing winds from the SSE hindered most of us more on the way out than they helped on the way back - only two out of nine riders managed slight improvements upon their previous season-series best. Congratulations to Kory McDonald Ibarra and Ellen Pazdzior for attaining this distinction! Kory achieved a 1.88% cube-speed improvement while Ellen had a 0.42% improvement despite still sounding rather congested following a severe cold.

Nice and warm (30+°C) with low air pressure (100.5kPa) allowed 4 of us to improve upon our previous season-series best, but the West wind made the return trip considerably slower than the first half. By midnight the winds were non-existent, and the night owl wonders how people might have done if the race was started then!

Anne-Marie Carter-McAuslan comments: On July 5th 10 riders started and finished the ninth time trial of the season. Conditions at the start were hot, 30 degrees C. and humid, with variable wind especially felt on the return leg of the course. The fastest rider was Mike Nash and the fastest ABC rider was Michael Coldwell. Credit to Anne-Marie Carter-McAuslan, Les Humphreys and Michael Coldwell for season's bests on not the easiest of nights. We welcomed new rider Jeff de Jonge who had a credible time despite using flat pedals without clips. Also, Chad Dempsey continues to improve his time with a 4 minute improvement. Thank you to Mark Miller who shadowed Chad for the ride giving Mr. Humphreys a chance to ride. Celia adds: There were 5 riders who improved upon their season-series best and two who improved upon their previous database best. The next 15km Time Trial will be on July 12th starting at 7:00pm with sign in starting at 6:30. The third 40 km Time Trial is Sunday, August 7th meeting in Franktown at the Calvary Christian Academy Parking lot from 7:30am with the watch starting at 8:15am.

Thanks to Emily Jansen, Dave McAuslan, Sandy Solojew and Mark Miller for running this time trial. Thanks also to Mark Miller for taking photos while volunteering at the turn-around. Anne-Marie Carter-McAuslan commented: "The second ABC 40km Time on Perth road was completed on July 3, 2016. Twenty-three riders started and 22 finished. Conditions were near ideal; sunny, temperature 17c at the start, and SW winds encouraging the riders to the finish. Tijmen Moltmaker did a course best and was the fastest overall with a time of 55:12. Hopefully Tijmen will be around for the next time trial. The fastest ABC rider was Michael Coldwell with a season's best time. Roger Kinsman of ABC and Vello Mijal completed their first time trials ever. In all there were, using Celia McInnis' records and john Warren's spread sheets, 8 personal best times! Anne-Marie Carter-McAuslan stopped to assist a fallen rider for about 10 minutes, time which is included in her result listed here." Celia adds: All six of us who rode the first wet, chilly, windy first ABC TT of the 2016 season improved significantly upon our season-series best and nine riders posted new personal bests on this course. In fact eight of these improved upon their previous database best on any course. Here is graph showing how all of today's riders have ever ridden on this course.

Tonight was apparently a night for the youngest and oldest - Oldest rider, Veteran E (70-79 years old) Jean Cooper managed to tie her season-series best while Peewee (10-12 years old) rider Ruby Kofoed actually managed to post a 3.34% cube speed improvement. The rest of us reported finding the night sluggish, but we were all glad to be out there getting a good workout. For your interest, have a look at the result after applying the OBC age-handicaping algorithm and an VTTA-inspired age/gender handicap algorithm. The first of the algorithms could be considerably more generous for riders of Ruby's or Jean's ages, whereas the 2nd makes no improvement at the young end of the spectrum, and, in the eyes of the British inventors, is perhaps too generous at high ages and not generous enough for gender. It would be great to have access to a large amount of good quality aerobic/power age/gender scientific data to establish some better handicaps.

It was another blustery TT night - at least blustery until after the TT! The air pressure was quite low, though, and all but one of us (myself) had season-series bests. In fact maybe all of us had season-series bests if you consider the extra sideways distance I did resulting from the strong gusts off of the river - So congratulations to us all, but especially to Ingrid Coney, Nancy Luitwieler and Karen Byskov who all managed a cube speed improvement of more than 10%(!) and to Penny Carmichael who achieved a new database 15km PB of 26:41, 20 seconds faster than her previous best. She was the only person to improve upon her previous database best. Also, welcome to new participant Elizabeth Ashby from British Columbia who is in Ottawa for the next 6 months.

On June 21st 8 riders started and finished the seventh time trial of the season. Conditions were sunny, warm (23C), and a helping wind on the outbound leg and hardly any wind on the return leg. As a result there were five season's bests and one course best. All riders finished. The fastest rider was Mike Nash with a seasons best and the fastest ABC rider was Mark Miller also with a season's best. One new timetrialist rode today, Jeff Clark from Cobourg and a soon to be Carleton Place resident, joined the group for a decent first ride of our time trial course. The next Time Trial will be on June 28th starting at 7:00pm with sign in starting at 6:30.

Nice and warm but with some pretty good gusts from the North East - and lots of car traffic (which impeded many at the turnaround). There was a new women's course record set tonight by Karol-Ann Canuel - 19:25! - good for 3rd place overall behind a first place tie of Marc Brazeau and Warren MacDonald at 19:16.

Fairly strong wind from the West and North made the last kilometer quite challenging, but it was sunny and nice to have some warmth again! It's not surprising that the two of us who also rode in last week's cooler and wetter than predicted conditions improved upon our season-series best. Fastest of the evening was Calah Wright with a new personal database best of 20:42. She has been training for the Nationals which occur in a couple of weeks, and looking at her continued small improvements, the training is clearly going well!

Strong winds from the northwest gave tonight's riders a good challenge. The fastest overall was a woman - Karol-Ann Canuel - in 19:46, a new personal database best for her on this course. Karol-Ann was the Canadian National Women's Time Trial Champion in 2015, and she is now a professional cyclist with the Boels-Dolman cycling team. Note that Karol-Ann's time tonight is currently the second of the fastest female 15km times in my database - second and only 6 seconds slower to Sue Schlatter's mark (in her late 40's) of 19:40. About half of the riders improved upon previous season-series bests and 11 improved upon their previous 15km database best. Congratulations!

Thanks go to Kevin Moon for taking most of these photos.

This was the scariest time trial yet this season with strong gusts of wind from multiple directions - surely higher than the 38km/h measured at the Ottawa airport. Many of us abandoned our aero bars and held on for dear life! My rear wheel even shimmied at several points! At the air pressure was reasonable at 101.2kPa, the temperature was okay and we were spared the severe thunderstorm that was predicted.

Thanks to Ingrid Coney for taking photos at the start and finish lines, and thanks to the other volunteers who helped to run this event.

Turn-around volunteer Jackie MacDonald managed to entice 6 riders to do an extra 200 meters tonight, but the rest of us, having had enough of the cold, gusty winds from the north and west, took the normal turn around point. I have adjusted the times appropriately for Carol, Ellen and Robyn. Let me know if you're one of the other three people who turned where Jackie had set up shop so that I can correct your time as well. Meanwhile, only 2 women improved upon their season-series best, and they also improved upon their 10km database best. Congratulations to Penny Carmichael and Margaret King for this distinction! Today was the last 10km WTT event of 2016 and here is a graph of all of the 10km results this year. We move up to 15km next week.

Tonight had the best conditions yet this year for the WTT series - sunny and warm at nearly 29°C; with a light breeze from the north-west (the optimal direction for many of us). Seventeen women did the race, and nine of the ten who had ridden earlier in the series this year improved upon their previous season series best. So far in 2016 there have been a total of 54 WTT races done by 32 women ranging in age from 12 to almost 73 years of age. Next week is the final 10km of this series this year, so come on out if you're a woman who'd like to do one (membership in the OBC or ABC gives you the necessary insurance and lets you then ride for no further charges) or one more! In June we move up to 15km.

Thanks to Barbara Wilson for taking photos at the start/finish when she wasn't busy helping with other things, and thanks to the other volunteers who helped to run this event.

It was cold (10 degrees down south at the airport and likely a few degrees cooler up north here by the Ottawa River), blustery with strong gusts from the North-North-West, and there was detrimentally high air pressure exceeding 102 Kpa, but, hey at least it wasn't raining, hailing or snowing! Six volunteers were there to encourage the eight women who rode this WTT 10km event. The only riders tonight who did not achieve new personal season-series worsts were those who were making their first appearance of the season. Congratulations to them and to the rest of us for not improving but still having fun!

Comments by Anne-Marie Carter McAuslan: The second time trial of the season occurred last night with four riders starting. There was a northeast breeze which did not seem as helpful as it should have been on the way back and the temperature was a cool 12 to 10 degrees. Riders found it to be "hard" night. The fastest was Mark Miller. The next Time Trial will be on May 24 starting at 7:00pm with sign-in starting at 6:30pm. The road clean up of part of Tatlock Road is on May 18 at 6:00pm meeting at Union Hall. This should only take an hour depending on the number of volunteers. Please confirm with Bob Woods at bacwoods@storm.ca that you will be volunteering. The next official ABC ride is on May 21, meeting at 9am at the Almonte Arena with a destination of Perth. You must be a club member to participate. Please email mcauslan@rogers.com or leshum@magma.ca if you intend to participate in this ride.

Thanks to Morley Dore for photographing the action at the turn around, and thanks to the other volunteers who help.

Seventeen women came out to ride tonight's time trial under conditions which were not too cold and not too windy but with a detrimentally high air pressure of 102.1kPa. Regardless, five of the seven repeat offenders managed to improve upon their time from last week and the other two of us were close! There was also a new women's 10km database category record for the Veteran D category (60-69 years old). Congratulations Ingrid Coney for taking 27 seconds off of the mark that you set last May under similar weather conditions! Congratulations also to peewee (10-12 years old) Ruby Kofoed for completing your first time trial. It looked as if you were enjoying the dirt at the turn-around, perhaps getting ready for Cyclocross in the fall! ed to run this event.

Thanks to Morley Dore for photographing the action at the turn around, and thanks to the other volunteers who helped to run this event.

Twelve women came out to ride this first WTT event of 2016. The weather was a little cool, but the sunshine helped and the wind made the return leg quite fun. Two riders, Stephanie Sothcott (2nd overall with 17:55) and Claire Menzel (18:25 for 6th place) managed to improve upon their previous 10km database best. This was despite the facts that Stephanie was riding "a la Merckx" and that Claire had to wait for a considerable number of motor vehicles at the turnaround.

Thanks to Emily Jansen for taking pictures while also helping at the start and finish line - and many thanks to John Warren and Sherry Warren for running this and a huge number of other time trials since 1992! John Warren comments: "Seven riders arrived at the start line to ideal conditions: sunny, a 20C temperature, and little wind; all finished. The fastest this evening was Larry Burge (OBC) in a time of 22:33 a Season Best time. Fastest from ABC was Michael Coldwell in a time of 24:04 also a Season Best time. Fastest female was Celia McInnis (ABC) in a time of 27:24 another Season Best time. This marks the end of the ABC time trial series for 2015, thank you to all of the many volunteers who helped as timekeepers and as turn marshalls. And thanks to all of the riders who participated, we couldn't do this without you! This was my and Sherry's last timetrial as official timekeeper and turn marshall; we will be available to fill in if need be, but the reins will be handed to some one, to be announced." Celia adds: First of all - Huge thanks to John and Sherry for your years of time trial service - They were well run and, most importantly a whole lot of fun! I enjoyed so many evenings of "ideal conditions" and loved the "Wet Floor" cone used. I hope that the two of you are out frequently next year, maybe even riding a time trial if you're not needed as helpers! Note that in addition to the three season series bests mentioned above for tonight, there were also 2 database personal bests for this course - Congratulations to Larry Burge and Michael Coldwell for this distinction! For your interest, this year (2015) there were 101 finishes on the Clayton Road 15km course and 72 finishes on the Franktown to Perth 40km course. Of these finishes, there were 66 Clayton Road 15km finishes for ABC members and 20 Franktown to Perth 40km finishes fof ABC members. The ABC BAR rankings require three Clayton Road 15km time trials and one Franktown to Perth 40km time trial. The total time taken (i.e., the average speed for the 85km total) is used for the ranking - and here are the ABC BAR results. Finally, it is interesting to look at the consistency of people's ABC best three 15km speeds and best 40km speed. The ABC annual dinner will take place at the Union Hall on Sat. Oct. 30, please contact Dave and Anne Marie at 6132530290 or mcauslan@rogers.com

Thanks to Anne Marie Carter-McAuslan for taking pictures while I was busy with the hills! :-) - And many thanks to John Warren, Sherry Warren and Bob Woods for running this always challenging event! John Warren comments: "Seven riders arrived at the start line to ideal conditions: sunny, a 26C temperature, and little wind; all finished.

Celia adds: There were also two new personal database best times - Congratulations Greg Calnan and Martin Skody - We all hope that, rather than resting on your laurels, you come out next week and try to do it again! The next and last 15km time trial is on September 22, 2015. Sign in will be at 5:30pm and the watch will start at 6:00pm. Please try to attend and make this a memorable swansong for our 2015 season. There has been a change; Our ABC adopt-a-road clean up will take place on Wed Sept. 23. Volunteers are needed to get our 2km cleanup completed in 1 hour. Meet at Union Hall at 6 pm.

Thanks very much to Pedro Ibarra for taking most of these pictures - until I had to rush off with my camera to an orchestra rehearsal. Many thanks as well to all of the volunteers who run this event with such care! On my way to tonight's time trial, I came across OBC President Peter Tregunno sweeping a considerable amount of glass off the road at the 1km to go mark. Impressive service! Fifty-four people (15 women and 39 men) came out to ride this final OBC Open Time Trial and nineteen improved upon earlier season-series bests. Better yet, fourteen people improved upon their previous 15km database best, and Sue Schlatter, though 38 seconds off of her all-time best of 19:40 (the Female Vet B record) reset the Vet C women's record by a few more seconds with her 20:18 time, good for 5th place overall! Aside from Sue, prominent in the top Vet C women's times is Robyn Angeles, who reset the VCF record a few times this year, and who was among the people with new 15km PBs. Also noteworthy in the Vet C women is Dianne Marleau's first entrance into the 40km/h+ club! Last but certainly not least amongst the night's strong women's results was Calah Wright's first sub 21 minute PB. Hot off of a bronze medal for the time trial (18.6km) in the 19-34 year old category at the world chamionships in Denmarck, Calah did 20:52 (43.131km/h) tonight. Way to go women. Amongst the men, first overall tonight was Joachim Toelke with 19:41 (45.724km/h), a new PB by 14 seconds. Way to go! These results were first posted on the OBC web site circa 11:00 on 2015-Sep-19 with me in first place at 09:57, that is 90.45km/h - WOW! Alas the results were fixed by 15:00 on 2015-Sep-20 and are available here for your added pleasure and analysis. Awaiting the posting of the official results...-->

The fastest this evening was Ian Austen (OBC) in a time of 24:53 a Season Best time. Fastest from ABC was Dianne Marleau in a time of 24:54. There were 6 season best times this evening." Celia adds: John neglected to mention the rain storm which started just prior to the start and which kept on for about half of the event. Ideal conditions for ducks, perhaps, but a little less so for most of us and our bikes - It was quite dark on the way out and I was wishing that I had mounted some of my lights on my TT bike! The next 15km time trial is on September 15, 2015. Sign in will be at 5:30pm and the watch will start at 6:00pm. Our ABC adopt-a-road cleanup will take place on Wed Sept. 16.

Thanks to Michelle Payne for taking pictures while I was busy. My apologies for somehow leaving the camera in a mode that was best for catching those of us who were moving closer to the speed of the foliage! Some of the later pictures are less blurry, but all help to see our form on the bike. Thanks as well to the volunteers who make this event happen! Some great new category records tonight from Sue Schlatter (20:21 or 44.226km/h) in the Female Veteran Category (50-59 years old) and Derek Gee (18:33 or 48.518km/h)in the Male Junior category (17-18 years old)! Derek was the fastest of the night and Sue was 9th overall. Congratulations - It was not an easy night with winds from the north and west pushing 20km/h. As it was 13 riders improved upon their previous season-series best and 5 improved upon their previous database best. Four of tonight's time trialists did not finish. They stopped to assist a (non-time trialist) cyclist who had crashed and lost consciousness after hitting the wheel of another cyclist in his group. These results were first posted on the OBC web site circa 10:30 on 2015-Aug-31 and are available here for your added pleasure and analysis. Awaiting the posting of the official results...-->

Thanks to Mike MacKay for photographing the action at the start and finish (link and thumbnails to be provided when they are available), and thanks to the other volunteers who helped to run this event. Tonight was the WTT Invitational - the last WTT time trial of the 2015 season. Men were allowed to ride as long as they had a female team mate. In all, we had 10 teams and 5 individual riders. Fastest of the night was the "XXXCM" team of Kory MacDonald and Lisa Meyer in 22:42, followed by individual "All By Myself" rider Sophie Matte in 22:50 for second, and team "Half Wired, Half Dark" of Ben Basu and Kathy Morin with 23:29 - good for third place. Special congratulations go to Sandra Bender who won the most improved award for her progress in 2015 up until last week. She was also the only one of tonight's entrants (individual or team) to improve upon their previous database best! Way to go - a substantial 5.1% improvement in her cube speed with her new PB of 23:55 (37.631km/h)! If she picks out an OBC skinsuit for her prize, she'll be even faster next year!!! At the banquet, awards were given in each category for those who rode at least 4 WTT events, at lease 3 of which has to be 15km events. It was also really nice that Mike MacKay gave each woman a picture that he took of them in WTT events that he attended. Thanks so much Mike for doing this, and many thanks also to the regular volunteers - Don Wilson, Jim Glover, Nick Dery, Morley Dore and Anna Delaney who came out week after week to make this event happen. Thanks also to the shops and individuals that donated prizes - the Cyclery, Bushtukah, Greg Christie's Ski and Cycle Works, Full Cycle, Orleans Cycle, Rebec and Kroes, ...

Thanks to Bruce Blair for taking start and finish line pictures. Thanks as well to the volunteers who make this event happen! One para tandem team, 3 women and 15 men arrived in South Gower on this nice morning to dothis 40km time trial. The course turned out to be about .4 km longer than advdtised, so you can calculate what you might really have done at http://www.timetrial.ca/cgi-bin/ttcalc.pl - Just type in a distance of 40.4, the time you got and hit the "Calculate" button to find your average speed. Then change the distance to 40.4, remove the time and hit the"Calculate" button to see what you would have gotten to 40km with that average speed. The fastest ride of the day, tat of the Para Tandem team of David Blair (stoker) and Jeffrey Dunbrack (captain) were timed at 56:05 for the 40.4 km, but would have done about 55:32 for 40km, more than half a minute faster. Slower riders would have saved even more time. Awaiting the posting of the official results.--> These results were first posted on the OBC web site circa 09:30 on 2015-Aug-28 and are available here for your added pleasure and analysis.

Thanks to Morley Dore for photographing the action at the turn around and the finish, and thanks to the other volunteers who helped to run this event. Mike MacKay also took pictures at the start and finish and we will provide a link. It was soothingly warm (29°C), and not too breezy when we started, but the wind picked up against us on the way back. Of the thirteen women who ride tonight, 3 improved upon and 2 equaled their previous season series 15km best, but nobdy improved upon their previous database best for 15km. Congratulations to new rider, Linda Kennedy, in the 60-69 year old Veteran C category, for doing 26:08 (34.439km/h), nearly 4 minutes faster than her prediction of 30:00. Here is a graph of all of the rides for the season. In all, 204 time trials were ridden by 46 women and two Minime 13-14 years old) boys. Here is the fastest speed of each rider in the 2015 WTT series. Here are the category rankings for those who did at least 5 WTT events in 2015 with at least 4 of them being 15km time trials.

Thanks to Morley Dore for photographing the action at the turn around and the finish, and thanks to the other volunteers who helped to run this event. Oh - and here are some more great pictures that Mike MacKay took at the start and finish - Thanks Mike! Dark clouds and threats of rain and thunder storms probably discouraged some from coming tonight, but the nine who rode enjoyed quite low air pressure and light winds. Four of the riders improved upon their season-series best, and two of those, Alexandra Bouchard and Marian MacKay posted improvements in their previous 15km database bests. Congratulations to these and all who dared to show up. The rain didn't get me until the ride home from dinner.

Clicking on any of the above thumbnails will bring you to Darlene Yee's facebook album of this time trial. Great pictures, Darlene! There were some great times today. For your interest, you can see all previous TTs on this course for today's riders by clicking here. Dave McAuslan comments: "Eighteen riders arrived at Franktown Christian Academy parking lot to 16 - 19C temperatures, only light northeasterly breezes, and sunny conditions. All 18 riders finished. Eight riders completed the course in less than one hour. The fastest overall was Aaron Fillion in a time of 50:57, a new course record by 3 seconds better than his 2013 time. Fastest female was Calah Wright (Eurosport) in a time of 57:42 for a season best and new course record for females. Kelly Knowles previously held this record with a time of 59:35 set in 2013. Fastest male from ABC was Denis Mahoney in a time of 58:12, a time which includes re-installing a contact lens at the turn! In all there were 4 season best times and 7 course best times. Details are given below. Good paved shoulders in both directions are now complete on this course. Because the marking at the turnaround was obliterated by the new paving, a new turnaround was marked using GPS with an attempt to hit a 40km distance on the head (many know that the version of the course used in May and June was 40.4km long). Paul Datars reported an odometer measured distance of 40.17km. Paul probably has his wheel circumference set correctly! The difference between Datars' measurement and the gps measurement could reflect the fact that, on curves in the road, the wheel measures the true curve circumference whereas gps approximates circumference with straight line segments. Next 15k TT; meet at Union Hall, Tues., August 11 at 6:15 pm for a 6:30 pm start. Our next 40k TT: Sunday, September 6; meet at Franktown Christian Academy parking lot; registration at 7:45 am with start at 8:15 am on CR 10 (Perth Road). Please call John Warren at 613 256 3195 or jsherry231@gmail.com before 6 pm Sat., September 5, to indicate intention to ride."

With winds from the west and north tonight, it was slower coming back than going out for most of tonight's 65 riders. Of the fifteen who equaled or bettered their season-series best, only three have done more than five OBC open time trials this year, and each of them equaled or bettered their previous 15km personal best. Congratulations go to Veteran D Blanche Drapeau (26:35 33.856km/h), Junior Antoine Massie (20:56 42.994km/h) and Veteran C Brian Robitaille (20:45 43.373km/h) in this regard, and to the other five people who bettered or equaled their previous database personal best. Kudos to Emily Flynn who has been riding since she was a cadet in 2009. Tonight she matched her previous best of 22:14 (40.179km/h) which she first set on 2014-Jun-12.

Thanks to Morley Dore for photographing the action, and thanks to the other volunteers who helped to run this event. Yet another windy Tuesday, and to prove or at least substantiate this, none of us improved upon our season series best! Congratulations go to Nicole MacDonald for managing to do 99.32% of her WTT 15km best cube speed. Congratulations also go to new WTT rider, Jessica Dempsey, who improved upon her database 15km personal best by 13.34%. Note that her only other attempt was in the OBC Open Series on 2015-Jul-09, a virtually wind-free night, so she is certain to post substantial improvements in the future.

Many thanks to Doug, who just arrived from down under, for taking these photos. Thanks as well to the volunteers who make this event happen! The WSW winds, which were gusting to about 40km/h, made the overpass scary and most of the return trip more laboured than usual. Only five of the 41 who had ridden an earlier OTT in 2015 improved upon their season-series best. Kudos to Joachim Toelke and Caroline Boileau who set new personal bests for 15km by small margins. Joachim did 19:55 (45.188km/h) tonight, three seconds better than his first sub-20 time trial set on 2015-Jul-16, a much easier night. He was the fastest man tonight. Caroline did 22:49 (39.445km/h), a mere 1 second faster than her race on 2015-Jul-09, a night with only a light breeze. Caroline was the second fastest woman. Probably the most noteworthy performance was the quickest woman Sue Schlatter's 21:31, good for ninth overall. This tied the Vet C Female record which was set by Robyn Angeles on 2015-Jun-11. Note that nobody else came close to the database 15km best for their category, and as well, Sue was riding her road bike without aero bars or other helpful aero equipment!

My camera is mostly back in commission after last week's drowning. All it took was a few days sitting in a bag of kitty litter - clean, unused kitty litter! Thanks to Morley Dore for using it to photograph the action, and thanks to the other volunteers who helped to run this event. It was nice and hot tonight (33°C) and 11 women came to ride the time trial. Only two people improved upon their season-series best, though more of us might have done so if we had started an hour later and benefited from the change of direction in the wind. I know that I was happy to be blown to the second half of a Chamberfest concert! Here is a graph showing how tonight's participants have progressed in the WTT 15km events. Congratulations to Tricia Spooner (21:50 which is 41.221km/h) for doing the fastest 15km time thus far this year in the WTT series.

If there has to be wind, WNW is probably the best direction, and even more so if it diminishes as the event proceeds! That is what happened tonight, and about half the pack improved upon their season-series best, with eight upping their cube speed by more than 10%! Some of these were among the 17 people who bettered or equaled their previous database best. Noteworthy database improvers are the first sub 23 minute time of Nicolas Déry and the first sub-20 minute times of Rodrigo Diaz and Ben Andrew. Congratulations as well to first place male Dennis Cottreau (19:24 46.392km/h) and first place female Sue Schlatter who managed 21:47 (41.346km/h) on a road bike without aero bars and other aero equipment rather than on a TT bike!

My camera drowned in this morning's monsoon so we have no pictures of tonight's riders. Thanks to the fine volunteers who make this event happen! We were back to gusty wind conditions again today, for at least the sixth time thus far in the 2015 WTT series! The air pressure. however, was favourably low at 100.2kPa, which helped Dianne Marleau (23:11 for 38.821 km/h) improve upon her 2015 WTT best. Two other riders who had not yet ridden in the WTT series this year, managed to improve upon their previous 15km personal best - Emily McKenzie-Picot and Olivia Garay who posted times o 25:27 (35.363km/h) and 25:37 (35.133km/h), respectively. Congratulations to you and to all that came out to ride. Luckily the wind dropped by the time I headed home from the post race meal so that my three cats didn't have to wait too long for their chicken!

Many thanks to Michael Coiré for taking start and some finish line pictures from the vantage point of the dandelions at the side of the road. I couldn't help but chuckle. Thanks as well to the volunteers who make this event happen! The air pressure was a little higher than last week, and the breeze a little more, but it was still a very fine time trial night for the 71 entrants. Thirty-Six of the sixty-seven with earlier OTT results in 2015 improved upon their season-series best and fifteen improved upon their previous 15km database personal best. Special congratulations to para hand cyclist Tim Williams for again improving with his incredible 31:44 - that is 28.361 km/h. To do this sort of time using only one's arms is incredible. Also it was great to have Joachim Toelke crack the 20 minute barrier after a number of near misses! He managed 19:58 (45.075km/h). As well, congratulations to Calah Wright for improving in her last 4 finishes and getting a new PB of 21:11 (42.486km/h). She will almost certainly go sub 21 this season. She was first amongst the women tonght while Aaron Fillion (18:31 for 48.605 km/h), his best thus far this season. Finally, the para tandem team of Emma Foy and Laura Thompson finished 2nd overall tonight with another speedy time of 19:38 (45.84km/h). Awaiting the posting of the official results...--> These results were first posted on the OBC web site circa 23:00 on 2015-Jul-16 and are available here for your added pleasure and analysis.-->

John Warren comments: The threat of heavy rain did not deter 5 riders, all finished. The fastest this evening was Denis Mahoney (ABC) in a time of 20:55. A newcomer to our TT is Martin Deschamps. Dave McAuslan was the only rider to take advantage of ideal conditions and the adrenalin rush from thunder in the distance, with a SB time of 26:07. The heavens opened up 5 mins. after the last rider finished. Next 15k TT is Tues. 21 July, meet at Union Hall at 6:45 for a 7:00 pm start.

Thanks to Morley Dore for taking photos as we registered, turned and finished. Thanks also to Mike MacKay for taking pictures of our starts and finishes - His photos can be seen at http://www.mikemackay.ca/set_browse.php?set=285. Thanks as well to the rest of the fine volunteers who make this event happen! With a starting temperature of 25°C, no wind and air pressure of 100kPa, formidable volunteer timekeeper and coach Jim Glover declared the conditions to be ideal for PBs, and indeed eight of the 15 women out today improved upon their previous database best for 15km. The most improved in this regard (14.78% in terms of cube speed) was 16 year old Alexandra Bouchard, but equally impressive in a different way were the improvments of Sandra Bender (6.09%) and Christa Ramonat (1.55%) who have been riding time trials for 15 and 18 years, respectively! In terms of season-series improvements, 13 of the 14 who had ridden a previous 15km WTT event improved upon their previous best 15km WTT of 2015. Congratulations! For your interest, here are the category rankings of those who have done at least five WTTs in 2015 with at least 4 of them being 15km events. If you're not yet on this list, come out and ride some more WTT events!

Many thanks to Michael Coiré for taking start and finish line pictures. Thanks as well to the volunteers who make this event happen! Ninety people came out to ride this time trial, and fifty of the seventy-two who had ridden earlier in this series this season took advantage of the virtually windless conditions improve upon their season-series best! In fact 27 people equaled or bettered their previous 15km database best. Congratulations especially to our para visitors from New Zealand who rode tonight and last week. Para hand cyclist Tim Williams posted a 38.39% cube speed improvement with his incredible time of 32:38 (27.579km/h) - Wow!!! The para tandem women's team of Emma Foy and Laura Thompson were equally inspiring with their 5th place overall time of 19:37 (45.879km/h), a 13.57% cube speed improvement. Note that they were the only people to improve upon a previous database category best, 44 seconds faster than the previous best tandem mark which was set by a male para tandem team of Craig DeBeers and Richard Marsolais back on 2001-Jul-10. We hope to see these athletes ride our course a number of more times before the Para Pan Am games in Toronto in August.

The weather was nice and warm (27°C), and the air pressure was low enough at 100.8 kPa at the air port, but only nine women came out tonight to work the strong southwesterlies. Congratulations to the three, Margaret King, Kelsey Hunter and Sandra Bender, who managed to post new personal database bests for 15km! None of the rest of us posted even season-series bests, but we were out there getting a great workout.

Thanks to Mike MacKay for taking pictures at the start and finish. Thanks as well to the volunteers who make this event happen! Today had the best weather conditions that any of us had ever experienced the Franktown-Perth-Franktown course, and it didn't hurt that the final third of the course had smooth new pavement (now only the middle third remains to be done)! All of those who dared to do the cold (6°C), drizzly first ABC 40km of the season on 2015-May-31 improved significantly (from 7.85 to 47.67 percent in their cube speed ratios!). In fact seven of us improved upon our previous best on this course, and better yet, seven even improved upon their previous 40km Database best on any course we have results for. Fastest male was Rod Diaz with a new personal best of 55:52. Second overall was ABC member Denis Mahoney with a new couse record for ABC members of 56:40. Fastest female was Calah Wright at 1:00:07, who will return to break the hour. Congratulations to all, and many thanks to the volunteers.

Thanks to Morley Dore for fighting with my increasingly tempermental camera to get these shots! Thanks as well to the rest of the fine volunteers who make this event happen! The evening started out looking and feeling a lot worse than it ended up being. The sky was quite dark, and as well there was a fair amount of wind from the SouthEast, but we were spared the rain and the wind dropped as the event proceeded. It was also helpful that the air pressure was edging its way down to 101kPa. Of the nine women who showed up to ride, four - Dianne Marleau (23:26), Celia McInnis (25:51), Barbara Wilson (29:32) and Laura Johnson (33:46) - improved upon their season-series bests and one, Marian MacKay (30:19) improved upon her previous 15km database best done on the tougher Almonte Clayton Road 15km course by almost 4 minutes! Even better, Marian's 15km average speed on tonight's course was faster than her three 10km time trials done on this course a decade ago. Congratulations. Note as well that you can check how you're doing in the WTT awards ranking my clicking the links in the long pink box containing "WTT Rankings for All Participants" underneath the results.

Thanks to Carla Canning for taking pictures while I was busy. Thanks as well to the volunteers who make this event happen! It was nice to not have to contend with gale force winds tonight, and with the breeze shifting from the NW to ENE during the event, some may have even had a little assistance on both the outward and return legs! Thirty-nine of tonight's forty-eight entrants had ridden at least one OBC Open Time Trial earlier this year, and eighteen of these improved upon their season-series best. The most improved of these, with a 31.05% cube speed improvement, was tonight's first place finisher, junior rider Connor Byway at 19:35 (45.879km/h). We hope that this means that he has recovered from the respiratory illness that he had prior to his first TT attempt this season. Congratulations to John Balint who in his 72nd year matched his previous database best of 24:45 which was first set more than 15 years ago on 2000-Jun-01! High Fives to the 10 younger people who bettered their previous database best. The improvements of Cadet rider Carson Miles over the last few years - 21:00 tonight (42.857km/h) have been exciting to watch, and we will cheer when Joachim Toelke, second tonight with a new PB of 20:01, takes another couple of seconds of to go sub 20 minutes. Good riding all! These results were first posted on the OBC web site circa 23:00 on 2015-Jun-25 and are available here for your added pleasure and analysis.

Thanks to Morley Dore for fighting with my tempermental camera to get these shots! Thanks as well to the rest of the fine volunteers who make this event happen! The air pressure was nice and low this evening at 100.7 kPa, but the same could not be said about the wind speed. It was gusting from the West and North to above 40 km/h, giving some of us a rather good upper body workout in stabilizing our bikes. Ten came out for the time trial, and three improved upon their season-series best. One of these, Sandra Bender (24:52), managed a one second improvement upon her previous personal database best from about a dozen years earlier on 2003-Jul-22.

Only 51 people turned up to ride tonight, probably as a result of the weather watch for heavy rainfall and thunderstorms. The wind was gusty from the SSW, picking up as the event proceeded, and some of us got back before the rain started to fall. Low air pressure (100.8kPa at the air port) is always helpful (except when it's in your tires (mine!)), as are warm temperatures (26°C) for most of us. Fastest of the night was a woman, Karol-Ann Canuel, with an impressive time of 20:01 (44.96km/h)! She has improved in each of the four events that she has ridden. Her time tonight is currently the eighth fastest female time in my database, only bettered by Sue Schlatter. Note that Sue was in her late forties when setting her best times, and it is interesting to compare the top riders using the OBC Age Handicaps of 2003 and with the Age/Gender Handicaps generated from the British VTTA standards. For the rest of us, nineteen riders improved upon their previous season-series best, and ten bettered their previous database best. Congratulations to Cadet male Clay Moon (24:29) for being the most improved in this regard (26.56% cube speed improvement), taking 2 minutes off of his first attempt. For fun, we can also look at how each of us did tonight relative to the OBC 2003 Age Handicaps and the Handicaps arising from the British VTTA standards.

Thanks to Morley Dore for capturing us on photo at the turnaround and as we pushed towards the finish line. Thanks as well to the rest of the fine volunteers who make this event happen! Note that most of the riders were not sent off at their seed time. We think that we have corrected everybody's result properly, but please let celia@drmath.ca know if we haven't got it right! Only ten riders came out tonight, possibly because the skies looked looked so ready to dump an hour earlier. By 18:00, though, it was sunny, and our only challenge was the gusty wind from the north. Three of the 10 riders were out for their first 15km WTT event, three of us managed to improve and 4 were slower than their season-series best. Congratulations to Lisa Sachsalber and Alexandra Bouchard who set new PBs Here are the season's 15km WTT results, thus far, for all of tonight's riders.

It was great fun on the way out with a gusty tail wind, and 33 people improved upon or equalled their previous season-series best. Better yet, 21 people bettered or equalled their previous database best. Even more impressive is the fact that two new category records were set - Congratulations to Robyn Angeles (21:31) for achieving a 5.2% cube speed improvement in Erika Revesz's previous Female Vet C (50-59 years old) record of 21:53 (2008-Aug-21 and again on 2008-Sep-04), and to Ron Amos (19:02) for his 4.8% improvement in the previous Male Vet C record (which he set last year on 2014-Jul-17). Robyn and Ron were both second overall tonight in their gender. Fantastic riding from fastest woman Karol-Ann Canuel who did 20:12 (44.554km/h) who was 8th overall, and to fastest man Aaron Fillion at 18:47 (47.915km /h).

Thanks to turn-around guy Morley Dore for getting one photo before my camera ran into trouble, and thanks to the rest of the volunteers who make this event happen !

Thanks to Hélène for taking photos while I was busy! It was nice to have sunshine and some warmth again (25°C) and relatively low winds (less than 15km/h). The high air pressure (pushing 102 kPa) and wind direction (SSW) were not optimal, but all in all the conditions were good enough to allow 28 people to improve upon their season series best and 16 to improve upon their previous personal database best for 15km. Congratulations especially to tonight's second place woman, Robyn Angeles for her new PB of 21:58. This is only 5 seconds slower than Erika Revesz's Vet C (50-59 years old) record of 21:53, reached twice in 2008. Congratulations also to Junior (17-18 years old) rider Derek Gee, who still had the energy to pull off first place tonight after his impressive win last weekend at the Grand Prix Charlevoix Race (in which he left the whole field several minutes behind)!

Thanks to speedy Morley Dore for being everywhere taking these photos, and thanks to the rest of the volunteers who make this event happen ! Tonight was the first 15km event of the 2015 WTT series, and 18 women and one young man came out to ride. Despite a 50% increase in distance, 13 out of the 16 of us who had finished an earlier 2015 WTT event rode faster! Congratulations to these riders and especially to Caroline Boileau who also managed to improve upon her previous 15km database best. It was great to have 4 women do their first 15km time trial, and amongst them was tonight's fastest finisher in 22:16 (40.42 km/h) - Robyn Hardage.Robyn is an experienced (and quick) runner and triathlete. These results were posted on the OBC site circa 23:15 on 2015-Jun-02 and are available here for your added pleasure and analysis.

Thanks to Carla Canning for taking photos while I was busy!. Air pressure above 102kPa and NW winds of around 20kph weren't ideal, but that didn't keep 37 riders from improving upon their season series best. Congratulations to them and especially to the 11 people who bettered or equalled their previous database best! It was nice to see Aaron Fillion, with his incredibly aero-dynamic position, out for the first time this season. He was first with a time of 18:38. Congratulations to the fastest woman, Calah Wright whose 21:34 was a 7.85% cube-speed improvement in her previous database best!

This was a nice warm evening (27°C) with SSW winds gusting only to 38km/h. By this time, we had all heard of the death of long time WTT participant Nicole LaViolette. Before giving out the numbers, we observed a minute of silence in Nicole's honour and then a number of people gave tributes to her. Nicole had started time trialling when the WTT series began in 1989, and she continued to ride them through her first year of treatment for ovarian cancer. She was a fine competitor with an individual 15km best of 22:30 (40km/h). We will miss you, Nicole, but your spirit will remain with us and continue to inspire us.

While the low air pressure tonight was helpful, the gusty southwest winds were not. Regardless, pro bike racer Alex Cataford was in town and he managed to do 18:11 for 49.5km/h! We hope that he gets back here on a nicer night sometime this summer. Alex was the only person who managed to keep above (just barely above) 40km/h on the open south bound stretch approaching the Queensway overpass. The second fastest of the evening, Matt Surch who did the 15km time trial in 19:29 (46.2km/h) said that he could only manage about 35km/h on that part of the course, though it would be interesting to see how much faster he could go on a TT bike that was well-adjusted to him rather than one that he just borrowed from friend.

Thanks again to Morley Dore for taking these photos! Most of us got a bit of a surprise when we left work/school/home to come to tonight's WTT. Environment Canada had advertised temperatures remaining balmy until midnight, but instead the cold front moved through at about 17:00 with the gusty winds changing from the SouthWest to the NorthWest. Well at least tonight's NWN winds are more advantageous on this course than the WSW ones we had last week, and this is seen in the results for those who rode both of these windy weeks. Still (or not!), the gusts were scarier this week than last, with some of us even unclipping from our pedals when we were hit by unsettling blasts of air from the side. Here is a graph showing how tonight's riders have done thus far in the 2015 WTT series. Alexandra wins the prize for sharing the road with the most cars at the turn-around - a string of nine behind her!

Thanks to Suzanne Harrison for taking most of these pictures. Though the air pressure was high and it was a little windy on the return trip, this was not a bad TT night - It was sunny and close to 20°C. It was good enough so that 34 of the 44 people who had already ridden an OBC Open time trial earlier in 2015 equalled or improved upon their previous season-series best. It was even more exciting to see that 15 riders improved upon their previous database best! Remarkably, four of the fastest five riders set new PBs for 15km! Congratulations especially to first place David Gazsi (18:32) back 55 seconds faster after a five year absence.

Many thanks to Morley Dore for being everywhere taking photos! It was more than a little Brrrrrhhhhheeeeezy tonight with temperatures falling from 15C and winds gusting to above 50km/hr, but hey, the air pressure was low and the dark skies didn't rain on the 5 women and two young men who dared to ride the time trial. There were no improvements in season-series bests tonight, unless we allow extra distance for the amounts we were blown sideways! In the TT calculator you can type in last week's speed and this week's time to see how much longer tonight might have been, or at least felt! It was about 658m longer for me! Anyway, here is a graph showing how tonight's riders have done thus far in the 2015 WTT series. Here's hoping for warmer and calmer conditions next week!

A warm evening of 26°C with winds from the south and west drew out a mob of 86 riders. Eighteen of us were on our second OTT of 2015, with all but two bettering their Good Friday time. The most improved, myself, credits her huge 89.26% cube speed improvement to the Easter rabbits, or more specifically, the lack thereof. The next two most improved were only doing their second OBC time trial ever - Gia Rinaldi improved 79.16% and Stephen Chapman posted a 65.32% improvement. Congratulations to the eight people who improved upon their previous database best for 15km. Special kudos to Junior rider Katherine Maine and Vete ran C rider Robyn Angeles who also finished in first and second place for the women tonight.

Many thanks to Morley Dore for taking these great photos The air pressure was sub-optimally high at more than 102 kPa, and it may have been a touch windy on the return, but dry conditions and a temperature of 20°C drew out 20 women and two Minime (13-14 years old) boys to this first WTT event of 2015. Kudos go to the youngest rider, Dylan Anton, in his first year as a Minime, for being the only person to improve upon his databased previous best speed, and his cube-speed improvement was a huge 35.65%! Dylan had only done one previous OBC time trial - the WTT Invitational last year, so we will expect many more improvements from him. Six of tonight's riders were doing their first 10km time trial ever and three of the remaining riders posted new database bests for 10km. Congratulations of Alexandra Bouchard, who just turned 16, for her incredible 53.70% improvement over her 10km results last year. Six of us also did Good Friday, and four of us improved. I get the prize for being the most improved in that regard (74.08% cube speed improvement), but must admit that I "cheated" in leaving the collection of Easter bunnies off of my bike and especially off of my helmet! We hope to see all and more out for next Tuesday's event! It's lots of fun for people of all speeds!

OBC Open TT Series - 2015-Apr-03 (Good Friday) - 15km (Rockliffe Pkwy) (evtfactor = 0.7518)

Ottawa Weather (11:00): Mainly Sunny. Temperature: 9C, Humidity: 74%, DewPoint: 5C, Wind: SSW 22 gust 34km/h, Pressure: 100.9kPa, Visibility: 24km.
Ottawa Weather (12:00): Mainly Sunny. Temperature: 11C, Humidity: 67%, DewPoint: 5C, Wind: SSW 18km/h, Pressure: 100.8kPa, Visibility: 24km.
Ottawa Weather (13:00): Partly Cloudy. Temperature: 13C, Humidity: 59%, DewPoint: 5C, Wind: SW 16km/h, Pressure: 100.8kPa, Visibility: 24km.

After one of the coldest winters on record, we finally got a nice day, and 49 individuals and one team of two came out to do this first OBC time trial of the 2015 season. The race started out a little cool at about 9°C and with strong gusts of wind from the South-Southwest, but the temperature rose a couple of degrees for the later finishers. Two entrants managed to better their previous database best for 15km. Derek Follon improved upon his previous database best by 1.08%, but the cube speed improvement of the team of Stephanie Sothcott and her little sister Jazmine Lavergne was a whopping 30.45%! Stephanie indicated that she is looking forward to getting some great hand-me-downs from Jazmine, who has just surpassed Stephanie's height. For each of us who rode today and in at least one earlier GFTT, here is a graph showing how each of us did in the GFTTs. These results were first posted on the OBC web site circa 22:30 on 2015-Apr-06 and are available here for your added pleasure and analysis. Awaiting the posting of the official results...-->

ABC Open TT Series - 2014-Sep-23 - 15km (Clayton Rd.) (evtfactor = 0.9186)

Ottawa Weather (18:00): Mostly Cloudy. Temperature: 16C, Humidity: 83%, DewPoint: 13C, Wind: SSW 5km/h, Pressure: 102.6kPa, Visibility: 24km.

Thanks to Greg Calnan for taking these photos before doing his time trial, First of all, many thanks to the volunteers who show up to make this series happen - especially to John Warren who runs the series and enjoys telling us how ideal the weather conditions are even when they aren't, Sherry Warren who enjoys our attempts to do good turn arounds, Bob Woods who holds us at the start and lets us go and David McAuslan who took great turn-around photos even when his arm was in a sling! Also much gratitude to the other volunteers such as Les Humphreys, Anne-Marie Carter-McAuslan, Patricia Sullivan, Leona Gray, Fred Geuer, Giorgio Imbrognio, Colleen Janusauskas, Al Watson, Sandy Solojew, and Bob Giles, who helped when needed. Tonight was the last ABC time trial of 2014, and seven riders turned up for another go at the challenging Clayton Road course. For the second week in a row, the women outnumbered the men, this time by an even wider margin of five to two! Emily Jansen (26:09) took first overall while Les Humphrey (26:44) led the men. The conditions were entirely reasonable for early fall - cloudy but not raining, cool (16°C) but not too cool, and there was only a slight breeze from the South and West. The high air pressure (102.6 kPa and rising at the Ottawa airport) was probably the best excuse for nobody improving upon their season-series personal best, but Les Humphreys was only 7 seconds off of his 2014 PB, and very well might have improved for a sixth consecutive time had he not been left with only one gear for the ride. Here is a graph showing how tonight's riders have done thus far in the ABC 15km events of 2014, and here are other ones showing how all participants have done in the 2014 ABC 15km series and all participants have done in the 2014 ABC 40km series. Also of interest is this chart of the ABC BAR results and this graph which shows how consistent their four ABC results for the BAR (best single ABC 40km and best three ABC 15km results of 2014).

Thanks to David McAuslan (still with his arm in a sling) for the great photos! It was cool tonight, around 13°C, with a slight headwind on the return stretch for tonight's collection of eleven time trialists. Interestingly enough, the women outnumbered the men 6 to 5, and Dianne Marleau was thriled to be second overall in a season-series personal best time of 24:47. Larry Burge was first in 23:36, 31 seconds slower than his season-series best on the warmer and windier 2014-Jul-22. Actually only 2 people improved upon their season-series best tonight, Dianne Marleau and Les Humphreys (26:37). A third rider, Martin Skody (27:40), not only tied his season series best, but he also tied his 15km database personal best! He is pretty happy with his new Time Trial Bike (AKA Joel Katz's old Time Trial Bike). Here is a graph showing how tonight's riders have done thus far in the ABC 15km events of 2014. There's just one more ABC time trial next Tuesday, and the weather is supposed to be good, so we hope to have a lot of riders out. Next and last 15k TT; meet at Union Hall, Tues., Sept. 23, at 5:30 pm. for a 6:00 pm start.

These results were first posted on the OBC web site circa 22:00 on 2014-Sep-07 and are available here for your added pleasure and analysis. --> Awaiting the posting of the official results... First of all - Many thanks to the stalwart volunteers (especially the regulars - Stephanie Rees, Alex McKnight, Peter Tregunno, Jess Raymond, Michel Bernier, Leona Gray) who survived the season without being blown away or drowned! Better yet, thanks for your good cheer which made the events fun week after week. Tonight was the last OBC time trial of 2014, and it was not an easy one. It was cold (13-14 °C) and very blustery with winds, though at least from the best direction (west and north), gusting to 46km/h at race start and still pushing 40km/h when the last participants finished. Regardless, five riders (Ian Austen, Joachim Toelke, Craig Burge, Chris Reid and Jeffrey Dunbrack) actually managed to achieve a season series personal best and two of those (Joachim Toelcke and Jeffrey Dunbrack) set new database personal bests! Way to go!!! You can see some pretty good improvements in these graphs. Here is a graph showing the progress of all riders who did at least 5 OBC Open Time Trials in 2013, with the riders sorted by the descending average of their average speed, whereas here is one with just the best 5 results shown for each of the people. There are various links at the bottom of the daily result pages that you may be interested in seeing, such as Best 3, BAR, Age Handicapped, etc. - Enjoy, but note that I an not filtering for OBC membership!

Thanks to Dave McAuslan for some great turn-around shots No rain and a reasonably warm temperature of 21°C attracted ten riders out to Clayton Road tonight. Better yet, with virtually no wind, eight of the ten of us improved upon our previous season series best. This was in spite of high air pressure (102kPa at the Ottawa airport) various wild turkeys crossing the road to get to the other side an incredibly slow motorist obstructing Michael Coldwell's turn malfunctioning gears on Les Humphreys' bike lots of creaking from Celia McInnis' weather worn vehicle a broken rear derailleur cable on Linda Wallace's bike Fastest of the night was Neil Farish (ABC) in a time of 23:36, while the fastest woman of the night was Dianne Marleau (ABC) in a time of 24:55. Both Neil and Dianne were among the eight season-series besters. Here is a graph showing how tonight's riders have done thus far throughout the season on Clayton Road. Next 15k TT; meet at Union Hall, Tues., Sept. 16, at 6:00 pm. for a 6:30 pm start. Our fall county Road 9 (Tatlock Rd) cleanup will be done on Wednesday September 17 starting just before 6:00 pm, with enough help this only takes 1 hour. Meet at Union Hall. Contact Bob Woods at 6132561874 or bacwoods@storm.ca if you can help. The schedule says the 25th of October, but the ABC annual dinner will be held on Friday, October 24, at Union Hall, 6:30 pm.

p Dave McAuslan commented: "14 riders arrived at Franktown Christian Academy parking lot to sunny cool temperatures, high air pressure, and a noticable wind in the face on the way back. It appears that the Polar Front has returned to the Ottawa Valley. All riders finished. The fastest overall was Joachim Toelke (OBC) in a time of 57:14. Fastest female was Kelly Knowles (OBC) in a time of 61:32. Fastest male from ABC was Neil Farish in a time of 63:05. Fastest female from ABC was Diane Marleau in a time of 69:17, an improvement of 36 seconds over her July time. Most improved on the day was Martin Skody who took 3:45 off his July time." Celia adds: When handing out the numbers beforehand, there was no wind, and the ever-optimistic organizer John Warren indicated "ideal conditions". Four of us continued to believe in him, despite the high air pressure and ever increasing winds, and attained season series bests. Martin Skody was out on a new bike and posted a huge cube speed improvement of 15.30%, while Celia McInnnis credited her 14.72% improvement to no more lilac smells and the excellent work on her very tight hips by Chinese practitioner Dr Sun and ART chiropractor Dr Colin Campbell (not the rider). Dianne Marleau and Ian Austen posted smaller improvements of 2.62% and 1.45% through hard work. Here is a graph showing how today's riders did throughout the 2014 ABC 40km series and here are the results of all participants throughout the 2014 ABC 40km series. Many thanks to the ABC volunteers who make this series happen. Next 15k TT; meet at Union Hall, Tues., September 9 at 6:00pm for a 6:30 pm start. The Almonte Bicycle Club annual dinner will be held October 24, 2014 at Union Hall. Note that this is a Friday evening event. A more formal notice will be coming out shortly.

Thanks to Les Humphreys for taking pictures of the ordeal. Your experiments made me look as if I was moving fast! John Warren comments: "One rider braved the inclement weather conditions; 25 C, rain, cloudy. Fastest and fastest woman from ABC was Celia McInnis in a time of 28:25." Celia adds: "The first shall be last and the last shall be first... It wasn't so bad once the shivering stopped a kilometer or so into the time trial. In fact it was kind of fun. Well I got in 141.56km today and quite a bit more mud on my bike. I was on the Trans Canada Trail when the rain began... Thanks John, Sherry, Dave, Anne Marie, Bob and Les. Next 15k TT; meet at Union Hall, Tues., Sept. 9, at 6:00 pm. for a 6:30 pm start.

With fairly high air pressure (101.7 kPa at the MacDonald-Cartier Airport), cool temperatures of around 17°C and NW winds which were strong and particularly gusty for the early riders, this was not an easy night. Sixteen out of 52 riders managed to improve upon their previous season series best, but many of these had excellent excuses such as having ridden few time trials this year, or having new equipment, or being young and on the way up. Better yet, eight of these actually bettered or equalled their previous personal database bests. Congratulation to all of these riders. The 11.40% cube speed improvement of Minime female Julia Gibson (24:06) and 9.71% improvement of Veteran A male Ryan Phelps (20:42) are very noteworthy, but the best ride of the evening has to be Derek Gee's 2nd place finish in 19:01. Despite having only just turned 17 years old, Derek is in his eight year of riding time trials, and it is interesting to see that he has improved every time out this year despite no equipment upgrades in the last couple of years. Congratulations Derek and coach Don Moxley for this excellent addition to the list of high quality Junior times!

Many thanks to paparazzo Morley Dore for taking photos - and a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Morley and Anna on this day - their 2nd WEDDING ANNIVERSARY!!! We were happy to share it with you! This was the last event of the 2014 WTT series - the Invitational in which women could invite men along to ride with them on a team. It was a rather breezy evening with strong side winds from the south, so team work would have been especially advantageous tonight, and yet the number of single entrants (nine) outnumbered the number of teams (eight). This has never happened before, and I surmise that the reason is not so much that we've become less social, but rather more that after how nasty our Tuesdays have tended to be this year, many of us were looking to improve upon our personal bests for the year! Too bad this wasn't the night for it - For the eight of us who rode alone, only Candace Anderson managed an improvement on her previous season-series best - in fact a huge cube-speed improvement of 13.35%! Way to go Candace. Better yet, she set a new database personal best along with the "Patty n Peter Putt Putt" team of Patricia Slaunwhite and Peter Verheyden. The fastest two teams of the night were the new teams of David Hall & Lisa Meyer ("Lisa n Dave" 22:51) and Detlef Hess and Heather Tkalec ("Cobbled to Heather" 23:14), while the third place team of Ingrid Coney and Paul Young ("Naturino Zoom Zoom" 24:24) completed their most difficult and slowest of three tries. Note that we had one new rider tonight - Peewee male Dylan Anton who just moved here from Toronto yesterday (How's that for keen!) - Congratulations Dylan for going faster than 30km/h on this difficult night! Following the time trial, there was the WTT awards dinner. There were prizes for all of the women who rode at least 5 time trials, at most one of which could be a 10km event. As well, cadet rider Alexandra Bouchard received an award for being the most improved. Prizes were also given to our most frequent volunteers and those at the dinner received draw prizes. It was a lovely evening celebrating a wonderful series. Thanks go to all who share their good spirit.

The 17:00 monsoon likely scared away most riders, but twenty people showed up to ride. Two flat tires to one of the riders in the leadoff team left eighteen of us to ride and finish this windy time trial. It was pretty difficult going out, but quick on the return leg. Five of the eighteen riders managed to improve upon their previous season series best. The most improved of these with ahuge 13.19% cube speed ratio was Ryan Phelps (21:21) was the only rider to post a new database personal best at 54 seconds faster than his previous best! It was great to have professional rider Alex Cataford here tonight. He seems to have recovered from the terrible mishap he had back in January when he was hit by a motorist in Tuczon and left with a shattered jaw, 10 fewer teeth, a broken vertebra in his neck and a concussion. He tied for first place tonight with Glen Rendall at 19:35. Second fastest timed Joel Katz (20:27), healed from his broken pelvis in June, was just 4 seconds off of the season's best he set last week, while Craig Burge (20:59) posted a season series best and the third fastest time on Ryder Hejedahl's former bike. For the women, there were only three of us. Junior rider Katherine Maine was first with 22:31, 91.80% of her previous season series best of 21:53. Dianne Marleau was second with 24:13, 5.46% faster than her previous season series best of 24:39 way back on 2014-Jun-05. Celia McInnis (26:00) managed to pull off third merely by showing up, depite the pools of water in her shoes! She was a minute and 4 seconds off of her season's best set on Tuesday in the WTT.

Many thanks to paparazzo Morley Dore for taking photos. Fewer thanks to Celia McInnis for leaving the camera in a mode which alas would be much better for photographing fireworks! We have had more than our share of difficult weather for this year's WTT series, so it was nice to have a dry night with not much wind and not too high air pressure. This allowed four out of a dozen of us to do our best 15km WTT of the season. For your interest, here are the category rankings of those who have done at least five WTTs with at least 4 of them being 15km events, and here are the rankings when one fewer WTT is required. More interesting, here are the graphs sorted by date of the performances of all riders who have done at least 5 WTT events with at least 4 of them being 15km WTTs that give some idea of people's consistency or improvements. It is slightly more informative to look at this information in tablular form sorted by name for those of us who show up on the really difficult days, since you can see how our performance ratios compared to the day's event factor. If we have a bigger ratio than the event factor, we can essentially view the day's result as good even if it is slower than our other rides!

This was the second OBC 40km time trial of 2014, and it was about 5°C cooler, 10km/h windier and with 1.2kPa lower air pressure today than at the first one. Anything gained from the tail wind on the way out this morning was more than lost on the way back, but lower air pressure is always beneficial and some like cooler temperatures. This allowed 4 of the 6 riders who had done both time trials to improve - Good riding to Robert DeVidi (the most improved 1.0740), Martin Skody, Joel Katz (the fastest of the morning with 56:39), and Craig Burge. Congratulations to Ian Austen and Ryan Phelps for setting new personal bests for the Heckston course. Kudos also to Mark Douglas for sticking it out on his fixed gear bicycle - It was not an easy return into the wind without the aid of some lower gears! Way to go to the rest of the riders for showing up to place in the top fourteen, and of course thanks to Stephanie Rees and Alex McKnight for running this event.

Brrrrhhh! With temperatures of 12-13°C, it felt like fall, but at least the rain stopped for tonight's time trial. Most of us were in podium positions for our categories and all of us placed in the top fifteen overall, since only fifteen of us showed up to ride! Despite the cool temperature and southwest winds, one rider, Hugh Graham (24:31) set a new database personal best. He had the excellent excuses of being young (Minime: 13-14 years old this year) and inexperienced (just 3 time trials so far). Hugh and three others managed to set new season-series bests. Hugh Grant was the most improved with a 4.76% cube-speed ratio and the excuses already given. The second most improved (3.23%) was Joel Katz, tonight's fastest rider at 20:23. He justified his improvement with his recovery from a broken (in early June) pelvis, and I guess that Mauro and Craig just like cool weather. Anyway, good going for all who came out to ride, and big thanks to the volunteers for running this event.

Fourteen riders got up bright and early (actually it was still dark when I headed off to my pickup point!) for this third ABC 40km time trial of 2014 and it was the best of the 40km TTs so far. The first 40km of the season was an abysmally slow high air pressure day with everybody being well off of their 2013 best ABC 40km. The second was better with every person who had ridden both the first and second improving, but it was painfully windy on the way out. Today's 40km had quite high air pressure but virtually no wind, so again, every person who had ridden an earlier ABC 40km time trial in 2014 improved! This has never happened before in any series recorded in my database, and it would be fantastic if the trend continued to the final 40km time trial in September - Let's hope for a warm one with no wind, no rain and low air pressure! Meanwhile congratulations to Joachim Toelke and Paul Comeau for improving upon their personal database bests for 40km. Here is a graph of the results for all participants in the ABC series thus far in 2014. Many thanks to John and Sherry Warren, Bob Woods and Leona Gray for running this time trial and to Dave McAuslan and Anne-Marie Carter-McAuslan for having a barbeque for us at their Carleton Place home afterwards. Cook Dave did a great job despite the broken collar bone which he sustained 4 days earlier. This is the second time that Dave has had problems with the plant life on the Trans Canada Trail. A couple of years back he broke his hip when a grape vine threw him to the ground. Last Wednesday he ran over a stick which got wedged under his fender causing him to fall and break his clavicle. Heal soon Dave, and beware the plants!

With gusty NNW winds and fairly high air pressure, this was perhaps a better night for a concert (in particular all six of J. S. Bach's Brandenburg Concerti) than a time trial. Regardless, of the 69 who rode, 18 managed to improve upon their season-series best and 9 posted improvements in their database personal bests. Good riding!

Many thanks to paparazzo Paul Menzel for taking photos. There was a substantial wind from the NNW but that didn't seem to impede some of the riders. In particular our youngest two riders achieved cube-speed improvements of more than 10% over their previous database bests! Big congratulations go to Cadet Alexandra Bouchard (29:12) for taking more than a minute off of her previous database best in averaging more than 30km/h for the first time, and to Junior Claire Menzel (26:08) for improving almost as much. Kudos also to the other five riders who improved upon their season series bests, and as well to the rest of us who at the very least showed up!

This was a slow night with only eight out of 60 riders equalling or improving upon their season-series best. The two most improved of these, Veteran C rider David Hall (22:42, a 9.54% improvement) and Minime Carson Miles (23:18, a 5.91% improvement) also achieved new database PBs for 15km. We expect many more improvements from Carson who is just 14 years old and has only done 7 time trials so far. On the otherhand, David Hall is in his fifties and has decades of experience in riding many time trials, so his 9.54% cube speed improvement over his previous database best on a day when more than 85% of the riders were slower than their season-series best is phenomenal!

Many thanks to paparazzo Morley Dore for catching the excitement tonight in photos - especially at the busy finish line! We welcomed one new rider, Jaqueline Szeto tonight with a great first time of 25:51. We will look forward to many improvements as she gets more experienced and better equipped with aerodynamic gear. Congratulations to the three people who improved upon their previous database bests. The most improved of these was Cadet Alexandra Bouchard with 30:17, a 7.27% cube speed improvement from her previous best of 31:00. It was nice to see her riding on the drops of her handebars for a more aerodynamic position, and it was fun catching her within the last 100 meters and challenging her to a sprint to the finish. She won this by a fraction of a centimeter depite my best attempt. Lots of fun! The second most improved was the fastest lady, Tricia Spooner with a 1.92% improvement for 21:01. This is close enough to the 20-somethings that she can't retire from the sport yet! The third database improver was Minime male Bryce Guitor with a 1% improvement for 25:02. I like the picture of Tricia glancing over at him as she passes near the finish line. Bryce is just 13 years old. It will be interesting to see how many years it takes for Bryce to get strong enough to ride faster than Tricia. Note that tonight was a slightly better than average night than what we have had so far - No rain, not too much wind and not too high air pressure let 7 of us improve upon our previous season-series best and put the average of the performance ratios greater than one at 1.0086 (see the 2nd line below the table of entries). We hope to see more riders out next week! Here are the current category speed rankings for the WTT awards if 5 events (with at least 4 15km) were required, and here are the current category speed rankings if 4 events (with at least 3 15km) are required. There are 3 more Tuesdays before the banquet to reach the required number of WTT events. These results were posted on the OBC site circa 02:00 on 2014-Jul-30 and are available here for your added pleasure and analysis.

Many thanks to paparazzo Morley Dore for taking photos almost everywhere! A number of riders commented on how much slower they felt they were this year than last. It seems that so far either we have had rain or lots of wind for the WTT 15km events. Tonight it was gusty winds from the south and west - but at least it was warm enough (29°C) and dry enough to draw out 20 women. Congratulations to the two who achieved season-series improvements tonight - =2014-Jun-01&Q_series=WTT'>Mary Ajersch (27:21) with a 5.21% cube speed improvement (in her 74th year!) and Tamsin Douglas (27:35) for a 1.46% improvement in her 50th year. There were no new PBs for any rider. Generally prizes are given out at the Invitational Banquet on the last Tuesday in May in each category for those who have ridden enough WTT events - generally five, at least 4 of which must be 15km events. Some years, only 4 events (at least 3 of which must be 15km) are needed. With Canada Day having cancelled one 15km event, and thunder storms eliminating one 10km event,the odds are that only 4 events will be required, but anyway, here are the current category speed rankings if 5 events (with at least 4 15km) were required, and here are the current category speed rankings if 4 events (with at least 3 15km) are required. There are 4 more Tuesdays before the banquet to reach the required number of WTT events. Even a brand new rider can reach the requisite number if only 4 events are required, whereas any of the 45 participants who has done at least one WTT in 2014 can qualify by riding the remaining events before the last Tuesday in August. These results were posted on the OBC site circa 01:30 on 2014-Jul-15 and are available here for your added pleasure and analysis.

Some great riding tonight with a new Category Best set by Veteran C Ron Amos!Here are the current top Veteran C Male databased results. Ron Amos (19:20), in his 50th year, had a season-series improvement of 4.47%. He did not exceed his database best time of 19:04 set on a difficult, gusty 2010-Jul-08 on which only 4 people posted season series improvements, but he has improved every time he has been out this year, and with the motivation of being in a new age category, it will be interesting to see what more he can do this year. Way to go to the 30 riders who equalled or bettered their previous season-series best and a special congratulations to the sixteen people who improved upon or tied their previous database best! It was also great to see 86 year old Geoffry Wright out there stoking a tandem that Ron Phillips was the captain of. Unfortunately they were stopped at the turn around getting assistance from turn-around volunteer Mike Bernier when I approached. Hopefully it was just a minor mechanical problem with the bike and they will be back for another go at it next week!

Many thanks to paparazzo Ellen Pazdzior for these photos of the women and other wildlife at this event! The weather people had forecast rain (that is yet more rain!) for this evening, and nobody was complaining that they were wrong! We have had rain for the past three WTT events, and even those of us who are not deterred by inclement weather were pleased to have others out riding tonight who are. The conditions were good - light winds from the south east and fairly low air pressure (100.5kPa at the MacDonald Cartier air port). Of the eleven riders tonight, seven had already ridden at least one WTT 15km event this year. Within those seven, three (Mary Ajersch, Sandra Bender and Christa Ramonat) posted improvements while the other four had cube speeds which were more than 93.97% of their 2014 WTT 15km best.

With air pressure above 102kPa and significant wind at race start, this was not a particularly fast night, but regardless half of those with earlier results in this series this season improved upon or tied their season series best. Better yet, ten riders improved upon their previous 15km Database Best. The most improved of these was Caroline Boileau (23:35) with a huge 22.5% cube speed from her previous best of 25:14. A much smaller, but very noteworthy ride was Junior male rider (first overall tonight) Connor Byway's 19:03, only a 2.91% improvement of his previous best time of 19:14, but 98.44% of the cube speed or merely 6 second's off of the Current Junior Male Record which was set by Alex Cataford on 2011-Jun-16, a warmer, lower air pressure day in which Alex was the 4th of 4 riders to break 19 minutes! Thus far the weather conditions have been tougher this year than in 2011. For your curiosity here are the weather conditions and gender bests for 2011 and 2014.

Thanks to Morley Dore for taking photos on this rather wet night! Thanks also to Anna, Nic, Jim, Tricia and Don for running the event in spite of the rain! Yet another wet and dirty one! Water was spraying off of my wheel into my face - but at least I know when to keep my mouth shut! ☺ Kory McDonald had a new 15km PB with a 20.42% cube speed improvement in her previous best. She was very happy with the new wheels that she was trying out! Lucie Tremblay and her daughter Alexandra Bouchard also had significant improvements in their previous 15km database bests. Tamsin Douglas, Nancy Luitwieler and Celia McInnis were well off any personal database or season-series bests, but at least we were all successful at finishing our rides before the thunderstorms hit! Lots of fun! By the way, I did not time trial on the heavily flagged bike shown in the pictures - That was merely my transport vehicle to and from the "Music and Beyond" Festival.

The wind seemed much more than the 16-20km/h reported at the Ottawa MacDonal-Cartier International Airport with some of us coming back more than 10km/h faster than we went out! Despite our slow outgoing speeds, the five of us who did both this and the first ABC 40km TT all improved. Some of the reasons for this might have been: --> lower air pressure. warmer temperature. not being impeded by a tandem truck by as much as a minute (Larry Burge). not having the pungent lilac blossoms in full bloom. new equipment being fitter being more experienced The most improved, with an 18.52% improvement was Larry Burge who had excuse number 3, and maybe number 5 in that he was happy with some new aero bars. The two improved, but least so - Paul Comeau and Mark Miller - had the added distinction of posting new 40km personal bests! Good riding!

There were only 44 riders tonight, possibly because of the rain in some parts of town, but at least it was dry on the Rocklffe Parkway throughout. With NNW side winds of about 20km/h and fairly high air pressure of 101.5kPa at the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport, it wasn't a particularly easy night, but that didn't stop 17 people from attaining new Season-Series bests and ten from setting new personal database bests! The most improved was Minime (turns 13 to 14 years old this year) male rider Carson Miles with an incredible 17.81% improvement in his cube-speed for 23:45. He was out with aero bars and an aero helmet for the first time - much enjoyed birthday gifts! Almost as much improved was Veteran A (turns 30-39 years old this year) Andrew Deak with a 16.90% improvement for 20:54. This was only his 3rd OBC time trial, and I'm not sure what other excuses he had for turning out such a great improvement! Another very noteworthy new PB was Minime female rider Nia Byway whose 23:32 sets a new Female Minime All Time Best. These results were first posted on the OBC web site circa 23:30 on 2014-Jul-03 and are available here for your added pleasure and analysis. Awaiting the posting of the official results... -->

Thanks to John Byway for taking pictures while I was busy! Weather conditions that were sunny and warm with moderate winds allowed about two thirds of tonight's riders to tie or improved upon their previous season-series best. Better yet, twenty of tonight's riders set new 15km database personal bests. This included first place finisher Andrew Buzzell with a 2.13% cube speed improvement putting him below 19 minutes for the first time with 18:54 and second place finisher Derek Gee with a 2.13% improvement for 19:14, putting him currently as the second fastest Junior. Mind you tonight's third place finisher, Connor Byway, practicing for the nationals next week, continued on to do a second 15km at virtually the same speed. It is interesting to note that Connor and Derek now ha
