Other Reminders

• Don’t forget your bike helmet, no riders will be allowed on the course without one.

• Body Markers will be available outside the transition area. Please make sure you get body marked on race morning.

• When starting out on the bike course, athletes must NOT mount their bikes until they cross the “mounting line”. There will be volunteers on the course letting you know where this is. Athletes must also dismount at this line and run their bikes into the transition area for safety purposes.

• Make sure to stay to the right side of the road on the bike course unless you are passing. Once you have passed (on the LEFT), move back to the right side of the road. Be LOUD on the bike course, let a rider know you will pass by saying, “On your left!” Be Safe!
