I rode the Full Rev3 Bike Course on August 24th with Pastor John Adams (what a great guy he is) and Ken Klamar. The course was relatively flat with exception to the climb as you come into Milan (East Front Street), when you first turn on to River Road, and a few of rolling hills throughout the course. You can expect a lot of wind on the long stretch of SR 113 to SR 60. (those doing The Full you get to do all this twice)
As an added word of caution: Risden and Darrow Roads were just chip sealed, so expect a rough, slow ride. Take caution on the down hills of both roads to avoid any accidents. All in all, I can not complain. I imagine Hoover Road will be swept up before the race to avoid any accidents. Well put together Full Bike Course by The Rev3!
I rode The Half Rev3 Bike Course on Sunday September 1st with Huron Firefighter Paul Hasenmeier and Ken Klamar. Just like The Full Course you will have a couple of nice climbs as you come into Milan (East Front Street), when you first turn on to River Road, and a few of rolling hills throughout the course. The road conditions for the Half Rev Course seemed in great condition with very minor spots to avoid on Andress Road.
I was happy to see North Jim Campbell Blvd. was recently paved and should no longer cause any problems. Although the intersections will be controlled by area law enforcement personnel (a Huge thanks to all area law enforcement personnel), cyclists need to remember that this is not a closed course and obey the traffic laws and respect the road, drivers, and other cyclists. On that note, good luck to everyone involved this weekend. Come out and support your local triathletes, as it will be a long day for many of us.
