Fiesta Island Time Trials


Fiesta Island Time Trials is San Diego's original time trial series since 1998, sponsored by San Diego Bicycle Club. For 2016 series, our title sponsor UC Cyclery will provide onsite mechanical support, and prizes.  We'll continue to use for online registration, timing, and results to streamline the process. Racers and fans will be able to track results in real time on a mobile device. 

Top six finishers in each category will be eligible to earn points towards series competition. Prizes and awards will be given to series winners at the last race of the season in November. 

You may sign up each race individually, or sign up for the entire series to receive 15% discount. The registration fee for 20K is $33 for adults, and $17 for juniors. Fees for tandems and 40K are $45. All prices include processing fees. No other hidden charges.

Join all the competitors to see who can ride the quickest 20K, improve the most, or log your best PR. Single riders, tandems, and teams all compete for top honors and island records.

There are 150 riders maximum per day, and the event sells out very early. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. Sign up early on
