Annual Time Trial Series
See also our Time Trial Facebook group for further details.
All of our time trial events benefit charities. A substantial portion of your entry fee is donated to one or more of the following charities:
Cure on Wheels
Harvest Field Ministries
Amateur Athlete Assistance
Ride Across America (Hope for the Warriors)
The Sean Ashman Foundation
Osceola Sheriff’s Adventure Camp
The percentage varies, but it is at least 50% of what is left after the event expenses are paid. The remainder (if any) goes to the club fund which is used for other club expenses.
2015 CFL Time Trials Holiday Monday Series
Along with our new partners at Kyle’s Bike Shop we are holding a six race series on Deer Park Road in St. Cloud. Course length is 40K (24.8 miles) with options for 10K for juniors and 15K for Masters 60+ and Parariders. This is the venue for the Florida State Time Trial being held in May (we’ll also be working on that one.) We had a few events there last year to get comfortable with the course.
The dates are the following Holiday Mondays:
Jan 19: Martin Luther King Day
Feb 16: President’s Day (first attempt at Team TT)
May 25: Memorial Day
Jul 6: Independence Day
Sep 7: Labor Day (FBRA BAR/BAT series points race – with Team TT)
Oct 12: Columbus Day
We are pleased to announce that our Labor Day race, the Fourth Annual Cowbell Classic, has been chosen as a points race in the FBRA BAR/BAT competition. This is quite an honor, especially for a club as young as ours.

Club Invitational Events
These are private, invitational only events that are often held on holidays, such as Black Friday and between Christmas and New Years. Others may be held at various times.
Some of these races are free, but we will have optional raffle tickets (via donation). All may race but to be eligible for prizes, the minimum donation is $20. Riders also get an additional ticket for each rider they beat in their class. This gives all riders a chance to win a prize, weighted based upon their performance.
Invitations to closed events are sent via our Time Trial Facebook group. If you or your group are interested in an invitation to any of these events, please join the group or Contact Us with information about you or your group.

Past Event News
2014 Black Friday KOM Time Trial Championship
The Second Annual Black Friday KOM TT (Central Florida Time Trial KOM Championship) was on November 28th. This 8.8 mile event was held in Clermont, starting and finishing in front of Fenstad’s at 20449 Sugarloaf Mountain Road. This hilly course features a final climb up Sugarloaf Mountain Road, which for Florida, is pretty tough, rising 200′ in about a half mile.
