The bike section will be along public highways which will be on open roads so make sure to adhere to the highway code. Please ride carefully for your safety and the safety of the others on the course.
Finally, you will head back to the transition to tackle the scenic run route again, with Super Sprint athletes taking on a slightly shorter out and back route.
