NEW YEAR’S DAY TIME TRIAL. Written By pakamac on December 30, 2011 Serious Coffee, Chase River Re. parking for this event: park in the Country Grocer car park as Serious Coffee is OPEN. A nice place to relax and swap excuses after the time trial. Besides, riding up the hill to the start is a good warm-up. For real wimps, there is parking along the hard shoulder before the start. BTW, if this event is as successful as we think it will be, the organiser is exploring the possibility of holding further events on the Duke Point Highway after the ferries start running again. The ships arrive and leave every two hours and there is about a one hour plus window between sailing times when there is very little traffic. Further information to follow.
