Leg 3 - Biking

Description

Upon leaving the Exchange area, please proceed out of the West Village Parking lot towards downtown Bend for 22 miles. No drafting allowed. There will be car traffic between the Bike Start and the Sunriver Junction and after the 7th Mountain Resort to Colorado Avenue. There will be Race Volunteers to assist with Traffic Control at all intersections. Please remember to check speed at the round-abouts before turning onto Colorado and please be AWARE of vehicles. The course is primarily downhill with one uphill climb after the Sunriver Junction. Parents may not ride with their children on bike course. ONLY those competitors who are doing the Bike Leg are to be riding on the course (extra riders impede safety). Remember to have your Bib# visible as you approach the Bike Finish for the volunteers to call your number for your teammate or support crew to be ready.

The Bike Leg is a beautiful ride into Bend along scenic Century Drive for 22 miles - the majority being a descent, except the one uphill stretch after the Sunriver junction. The biker then proceeds to Colorado Avenue for the next exchange point. Helmets are required and drafting is not allowed.

The third stage is a beautiful ride into Bend along scenic Century Drive for 35 km-the majority being a descent, except one uphill stretch after the Sunriver junction. The cyclist then proceeds to Colorado Ave. for the next exchange point. Helmets required and drafting is not allowed.
