Correction: An earlier version of the story stated the Eaglecrest Time Trial is this Friday. The time trial is Friday, July 13. The article has been updated to reflect the change.

Three dozen cyclists competed in the Eagle Beach Bike Relay Race on Saturday. It was the first year the Juneau Freewheelers hosted the race, which was topped off with a potluck at the end.

The relay was broken up into four legs between 10-20 miles in length, each of which started and ended at Eagle Beach. The majority of the competitors rode in four-person teams, but the race also featured solo teams and two-person teams.

“The basic idea was to try and combine a fun ride and a race,” Juneau Freewheelers member Rob Welton said. “We also just added a social element to it so that we have a little BBQ here at the finish line to allow people to hang out with each other.”

Welton and teammate Lowell Fair won the men’s two-person team division and turned in the third fastest time overall (2 hours, 53 minutes, 19 seconds).

Will Coleman won first overall and first in the men’s solo division with a time of 2:37:56. Janice Sheufelt also biked solo and was the fastest woman to the finish line with a time of 3:18:11.

The Freewheelers host the Eaglecrest Time Trial on Friday, July 13, at 6:15 p.m. The Tour of Juneau is scheduled for Aug. 17-19.
