The bike has 4 major right hand turns in the 18.62 mile route. Before each turn there will be white flour onthe road, plus a big red cone with arrows on it after each turn. Major turns, when you are looking at the pavement, you will see the words DU, THAT MEANS Duathlon and you are going the right way.
There will be White arrows, 3 foot red cones with Blue arrows on the cone and the Letters DU on the asphalt reassuring you that you are going in the right direction.
When you finally climb Papa Bear and on your way down Papa, you will have approximately 1.5 miles of a fast downhill. Hang on to your handle bars, there is a lot of waves in the downhill portion of the road. Nothing serious but just be aware.
WHY: Because you love to race, you love to feel great about your accomplishments, you love to compete, you love
Wolf Pack Events (we hope), and your body, soul, and mind craves the physical challenge. We love it too.
Most important of all…. To have a great time out there racing!
See ya Saturday!!!
