Tram Road Challenge

There are so many people at the tram road challenge that it is impossible to find anybody in the crowd.

We could make it easy if we all agree to a specific way to find one another.

We could meet at a certain place at a certain time, (for example, the right side of the road right at the starting line 15 minutes before the race starts).

Or, we could wear a certain identifiable piece of clothing - I have a Tigger baseball cap and an embarrassing neon pink Loma Linda Lopers t-shirt).

Any ol' trick will do, as long as we know in advance how to find each other.

The race is still over a month away, but it sounds like a few folks here might be at the race. That'd be fun.

Does anyone know if the bike ride up the tram road is a mass group start, or individual/small group starts 15-30 seconds apart? It would be great to do, but not as a mass start for that short of a ride.

Hi,
Did the brick last year, very tough. The bikes are launcehed every 30 seconds I think it was, maybe 2 at a time.
I do recommend training on the road with you bike if possible, as there's nothing quite like it around, Relentless.
My stratagy is to start slow and taper-off, seriosly, don't go out hard, many a runner,or biker will come back to you if you pace.
It's cool at the top, 2,600 ft finish, bring dry clothes.
The last 400 yrds are the worst, a bit like Skyline!
