Important Race Information
- Online race entries are required for time trail races for ALL RACERS (including members and juniors). All racers must enter this race by 8:00 PM the night before the race. Scroll down for race entry information.
- Start lists will be posted on this page by 10:00 PM the night before the race. Racers will be grouped by category and start times randomly assigned within each group. Special start time requests will not be granted – please don’t ask.
- Race numbers must be picked up at the race director’s table beginning at 5:00 PM. Please pick up your number at least 20 minutes prior to your start time to allow time to pin your number. You will keep your number for the entire season.
- Do not cut, trim, or fold your race numbers – it makes it difficult for the finish line volunteers to pick out your number from the various colors and logos on a fast moving jersey.
- Race numbers must be pinned to the right side of you torso so as to be readable from the side when you are bent over in a riding position
- Please arrive at the start queue at least 2 minutes prior to your start time.
- We will not have a bike holder at the start line. All racers must start from a full stop with one foot on the ground.
- Drafting is not allowed in time trial races and will result in a time penalty.
- Do not congregate on the road near the finish line and do not ask the finish crew for your time.
Course Description: The 2023 Aspen Cycling Club race season begins with the Lower River Road Time Trial. The first racer departs at 6:00 PM and racers start every 30 seconds. Racers begin just below the intersection of Gerbaz Way and Lower River Road, then ride northwest (down valley) on Lower River Road, turn around just before the bridge at Highway 82, then ride back toward the start. The finish line is approximately .85 miles northwest of the start line. The race is 8.8 miles in length.

Race Cancellation Policy: Please do not phone or text the race director for race cancellation information. In the event of inclement weather on race day, the Aspen Cycling Club Board of Directors will communicate with the Race Director to determine the Club’s ability to operate a race that is reasonably safe for competitors, and, for mountain bike races, preserves the integrity of local trails. All racers should assume that a final decision will be made at the start line by the race director. However, when possible, the Board of Directors will alert racers of a race cancellation prior to the start by emailing the Club email group, and posting on the website and the ACC Facebook page by 5.00 PM.
Refund Policy: Race entry fees are non-refundable
