We Roll Real Fast...
Every spring here in Austin, Tx Raul Najera and the folks at RunFar Racing Services are kind enough to set up some timing mats down on S. Mopac, hand out some timing chips and let the speed obsessed cyclists in the area see how fast they roll. Everyone is welcome and the results are posted on the web later in the evening. Depending on who you ask the course is somewhere just over 8 miles (13 kilometers) long and "mostly" flat. I say "mostly" because this is Austin and "flat" is a pretty rare description for the local terrain.
The time trials are free providing you supply your own chip, or costs $5.00 to borrow one. The RunFar Time Trials are held twice monthly on Tuesdays starting at 6:00 PM and go on through September.
If you aren't inspired yet, here are some pictures. Because I don't know about you but I'm thinking "It's GO time!"
