BIKE: The 12 mile mountain bike portion of the race will consist of a little park road to get to and from the mountain bike trails, and then the East Fork Mountain Bike trails will be used for the remainder of the bike leg. The course will start out of transition at the beach, go up the hill and turn right onto park road 2. Enter the trails at the Tech Trail, do the Advanced loop and the beginner loop, and then return to the parking lot via the Tech Trail.
