Fast Women
Fast Brevet Times by BC Women
Data from Cheryl Lynch

Shawn Wenger's fast 200 km at the Interior 200 last weekend got people wondering if it might be a record. Database manager Cheryl Lynch looked into it. This is from an e mail message from a few days ago to Shawn and others:

6:50 is fast! Wow.

Re: record club 200 time for woman, here are the times under 7 hours. Shawn is definitely closing in on a record time. Too bad about the ferry wait! When I did 6:41 I didn't know what the fastest time was either.

F  200  6:35  Bonga  Anna    --/--/1991
F  200  6:35  Bonga  Anna    --/--/1992
F  200  6:41  Lynch  Cheryl  09/24/2006
F  200  6:56  Barr   Susan   09/18/2005
F  200  6:57  Lynch  Cheryl  09/12/2004

The fastest 300 is10:43 by Anna Bonga. Susan Barr did 11:45, Deirdre did 11:55 and I broke 12 (11:59) once. Shawn already has ridden 12:02, so we know she can break 12, but breaking 11 is a bit tougher.

Fastest 400 is 15:08 by Susan Barr. Anna did 15:50 and 16:30, and I've done 16:36. Nobody else under 17h.

So far my 26:10 600 in 1997 is still fastest 600. Anna did 26:57, 27:58 and 30:51. Nobody else under 30.

In case anyone is interested, the fastest 1000, again by Anna, is 61:31.

It's harder to do fast times with more and more traffic and longer lights. Ferries don't help either :)

Happy (fast) riding!!
