EQUINOX RELIABILITY TRIAL

Although the recent weather conditions would certainly indicate otherwise, spring shortly. With that seasonal change comes the Club's annual Equinox Reliability Trial. This is an event that dates back further than any records I currently have. My first participation was in 1978. Unfortunately, I long ago surrendered to the landfill any memorabilia I had from that early event. In past decades Equinox was a timed event, and the finishing time of each rider was recorded and then listed in the Dirty Derailleur Newsletter. The oldest Equinox results I have are from 1989, and at that time the Club actually generated some revenue from the event.
Click here to see the first page of those Equinox results (it's worth admiring the handwritten treasurer's report that was added to the newsletter!). Click here to see the second page listing the results of each participant.
This year's course should be identical to last year's route, unless there are some road conditions that change between now and the event. The course is not yet marked, so check back about a week before the event for updates on the course and any special road conditions.
