This form calculates the opening and closing times for RUSA-sanctioned permanents. (March 2018) The closing times for controls at less than 60km from the start have been relaxed in accordance with the ACP calculations. A discussion of the specifics maybe be found here. The minimum and maximum speeds for permanents are constant for the duration of the ride. These are defined by the following table:
|Event Distance (km)||Minimum speed||Maximum speed|
|100 - 699||15 km/hr||30 km/hr|
|700 - 1299||13.3 km/hr|
|1300 - 1899||12 km/hr|
|1900 - 2499||10 km/hr|
|2500 and up||200 km/day|
STEP 1: Indicate the permanent distance, starting date, and starting time.
- If preparing a sample control card for approval, times are shown as Dd,Hh,Mm, where D, H, and M are the number of days, hours, and minutes of elapsed time from the start. Otherwise, times are shown in a 24-hour format; for example, 2:00 AM is shown as 02:00 and 5:45 PM is shown as 17:45.
- It is assumed that all checkpoints are located within the same time zone.
- The output is displayed as simple text for easy cutting and pasting.
