Ride and Glide June 17th Time Trial Report
By Steve Thatcher
June 18, 2003
As the name indicates the Ride and Glide Bike and Ski Club
concentrates on cycling in the Summer months. Tuesday night
rides leave from Ramsey Beach in White Bear Lake from May
through Labor Day. Roller skiing takes over after Labor Day
until the snow flies. Once a month a Time Trial is held that
leaves from the Withrow School in Washington County. This
last Tuesday, June 17, was the second edition of the event.
Under sunny skies and mid 80 temperatures and calm winds Jay
Guthrie blistered the 13.6 mile course in 31 minutes and 24
seconds averaging 26 miles per hour to set the new course
record. About 20 people participated in this month's event
with speeds ranging from 19 to 26 mph. Full results and pictures
can be found on the club website at www.rideandglide.bizland.com.
These events are open to anyone. For information on the
weekly rides and the Timetrial schedules see the website.
