Bike Course Elevations
Both bike routes are extremely flat with no more than a 10m-20m difference between the highest point and the lowest point on the course! We will be producing a profile of the courses soon.
As we indicated previously, due to the compact nature of the competition schedule, unfortunately, there will be no opportunity to ride any of the routes in advance of the event for any athlete including the elite. Age group team managers must brief their athletes that no cycling can take place on the race routes at any time during competition week of September 9th to September 15th. Also Hyde Park itself will be closed to vehicles so that ramps, barriers and branding can be installed throughout the Park. Riding in Hyde Park during venue build will be highly dangerous and will not be allowed.
