We're bringing back an old classic - The Cohasset DOWNHILL Time Trial!!!
This Downhill Time Trial starts just below the "Narrows" on Cohasset Road - look for me at the registration table at the top of the hill. The "Narrows" is where Cohasset Road goes from a fairly wide section of road down to a narrow section of road. We will be Starting just before the road narrows. The Finish for this Time Trial is at the 1st Rock Creek Road on the way down the hill. An approximation of the course can be found at Bikely.com here and the map on this page:
This course is approximately 3.95 miles in length and drops approximately 1,600 feet!! Top speeds on this descent have reached 50+ miles per hour. Registration for this event will start at 8:30am at the top of the hill(near the Narrows). The 1st rider will go off at 9:01am, and we will go in 1-minute intervals. Yes, Tandems are welcome!
