Vmps Time Trial Training Series

Vmps Time Trial Training Series--Millbury/Sutton, MA

Looking for a fun way to get faster on the bike? Then join us for the Vmps Time Trial Training Series.

Known as the ‘Race of Truth’, the time trial is you against the clock. Riders are sent off one at a time with no drafting allowed. A weekly time trial is a great way to gauge your cycling fitness. Plus it is rewarding to watch your times drop as the season progresses. This training series is appropriate for all levels of cyclists from beginners to elite.

Our 9.2 mile course starts in Millbury, goes around Lake Singletary in Sutton, and returns to Millbury. There is a climb near the start of the route, some flat and false flat riding, a descent, and then gently rolling terrain to the finish line.
