Perhaps Santa Barbara's longest running cycling event, the Monday Night Time Trial happens the second Monday evening of each month during Daylight Savings Time.
THIS IS AN OPEN COURSE! MNTT is not sanctioned by any club, team, website, person or entity.
Be safe and obey all traffic laws!
Departing at one minute intervals, you'll ride an approximately ten-mile course (open roads, obey traffic laws and be safe) on familiar roads, starting at the Railroad Museum at Stow Grove and finishing at Dos Pueblos High School. Times are self-recorded and reported at the finish.
You'll see riders decked out in all their wind cheating glory, equipped to the max with full aero, and others will be on their road bikes without aero gear at all.
How fast can you ride ten miles on a rolling course? Can you do it faster next month than today? That's the real question. You're probably not competing against Brandon Baker or John Echeveste or Robert Krohn; you're racing against the clock - and yourself.
It's more or less a half hour of all out suffering followed by hanging out at the finish line and bragging or commiserating then home for dinner. And that's pretty much what bike racing is all about, usually followed with beer and this time without having to drive for hours. Sound good? See you there!
