The bike course will consist of two laps equaling 56 miles. Once you exit the swim, you will need to get your bike and run/ride about 100 yards before reaching the paved road. Please use caution on this section since the transition area consists of loose gravel/rock. Once on the road, you will make a right hand turn and proceed west for 3.2 miles before reaching a turnaround which will require you to cross the Steese highway and then proceed east. Traffic will not be stopped for participants therefore it is up to the racers to follow the road rules and proceed with caution. After heading east for 13.6 miles you will come up to the next turnaround point. Using the pull off on the north side of the road, racers will be able to access the aid station. Racers will then continue back to the 1st turnaround and complete their 1st loop. Racers will need to complete this loop for a 2nd time and then re-enter the transition area. The course is mostly flat with some rolling hills near the far turnaround point. Please use caution when attempt to pass. The Steese Highway is popular for weekend use so camper traffic tends to be a little heavy. Make sure you carry extra tubes in case of a flat. Prior to mounting your bike your helmet MUST BE BUCKLED.
