The Willow Time Trial is held at Willow MetroPark, located near Romulus Michigan, east of I-275 off of South Huron Road (exit 11), six miles south of I-94. A park entrance permit is required. One day permits are available at the park entrance. The Willow Time Trial once again offers a season-opening opportunity to test your off-season base-building. Returning this year are the popular first-timer and Fat Bike categories. Racing is fun, and shouldn’t be intimidating, so if this is your first time, we have a category for you to see what this is all about. And yes, you read that right. We will have a Fat Bike/MTB Bike category. These are such fun and versatile machines that we couldn’t resist the chance to put them to the test on the road, in a time trial.

NEW FOR 2023 – Team Time Trial Categories We will have Male Open, Female Open and Mixed Open Team categories. Teams will consist of 4 riders with the time taken when the 3rd rider crosses the line. Teams must register together at one time (sorry, that’s the way bikereg requires) and pay at one time. For the mixed category, there must be 2 males and 2 females. There are no restrictions on bikes or equipment. TT, Road and any other type of bike is allowed. Get 3 of your fastest friends together and see if you have what it takes to be the fastest team in the state!

REDUCED FEES and DISTANCES for Juniors for 2023! Juniors will be the first category racing in the morning this year.
