Tempo Cyclery Rides Every Thursday


It's that time of year again! The Tempo & Timmy Time Trials start in March. If you have never been to these events, they are a blast. Ten miles against the clock in one of the most rider friendly neighborhoods in Sarasota. The group parks at the Tempo Cyclery bike shop at 5140 Palmer Plaza Blvd, Sarasota. From there it is a short ride to the race start at the corner of Palmer Ranch Parkway and Honore.

The Individual Time Trials begins at 6pm. You might want to arrive a little early so you can sign the insurance waiver and get a numbered sticker for your helmet so they can track your speed. Then you simply line up and go. After the race, riders return to Tempo for the all important after race beers.


The Tempo & Timmy Time Trials will now be held on the last Thursday of each month.
The dates are as follows (Weather permitting):

* March 27th
* April 24th
* May 29th
* June 26th
* July 31st
* August 28th

The races will take place in cases of rain but will be cancelled when lightning is present.
Results will be posted on the Tempo & Timmy Time Trial Facebook Page.


So, now you've got plans for the last Thursday of each month but what do you do with the rest of your Thursdays? Luckily there are more rides available. The Tempo & Beery's Gulfgate rides will be on the 1st through the 3rd Thursday of each month, starting March 13th.

The ride starts from Mr. Beerys and goes down to Casey Key and back up the Legacy Trail for a total of 28ish miles. There are A, B and C speed groups. Get some fresh air with friends at your pace and then enjoy a few craft brews at one of Sarasota's favorite pubs.

So there you have it. Your Thursdays are now all booked throughout the spring and summer. Be sure to check the various Facebook pages for updates and have a great year!
