The latest challenge

Highlands Ranch cycling club is hosting a time trial up Deer Creek.

On Wednesday, this week, at 6PM, they will be riding from the parking lot by the Lockheed Martin sign (just after the uphill starts) up to the Phillipsburg area. It's basically half a Deer Creek run, but it will be timed. They expect only about 10 people or so to race, and apparently you don't have to be a member. So, any of our tough guys ready?

Also, Fabio's personal race mechanic (yeah, he was hired for other reasons...) told us that his team has yellow start and finish lines on Deer Creek. I couldn't find them, but apparently they ride between the lines in 29 minutes. I started from the downhill end of the Lockheed Martin parking lot and stopped the clock just past the yellow sign at the top in 32:28. I don't think I've ever ridden Deer Creek faster, never seeing less than 10mph until the steep area, and keeping it at 9 or above there.

Anyway, the challenge is on. I say we go out and put down a Banshee marker at the top and bottom and start our own timing.

If (and it's a big if) Stacey can be home for soccer practice, I will go. But it doesn't look very good.
