South Canal Time Trial

This is a FREE event!

What is the SCTT?
Next season of South Canal Time Trial Series starts Tuesday, March 12th, 2013.
Time trial is a race of truth and an opportunity for cyclists to compare their fitness with fellow cyclists. Sacramento, California is blessed with a stretch of road next to a river canal that is free of traffic which is an ideal place for a time trial. Cyclists can try out their aero toys and have fun in a friendly competition. In 2013, Folsom Bike will be running this event every OTHER TUESDAY night starting March 12th on a completely volunteer basis. How great is that! There are no fees, no registration, no waivers, no lawyers and no prizes. This is just a simple race of truth for 10 miles among friendly cyclists for FUN. If you are in the area, go try out your time trial skills. It’s a blast.

Course is a 10 miles out and back on a totally traffic free road that parallels the river canal. There are 1 small riser within first mile and 2 overpasses within 2 miles of the start. The turn around is marked with an arrow painted on the road exactly 5 miles from the start on top of a very small riser. If you run into a major street, then you’ve gone too far.

Finally, if you plan to attend this event regularly, do consider (expect) to volunteer. The volunteer job is very easy and involves taking time of finished racers.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
