  • The road bike course is 2 laps of a 9 mile loop. Trained Staff will be present at every intersection and signs will be posted that there are bikers on the road. All roads will be open to traffic during race.  Leaving Transition, you head out of the park to reach Alpine Rd.  After making a right, you are greeted immediately with a nice steady downhill for about a mile.  Don’t get too comfortable.  You then turn right onto East Camp Area Rd. where you will be cranking the pedals and climbing over the next mile.  As you reach Rte. 74/ Carlisle Rd., the course flattens out.  There is a wide shoulder, so stay to the right since you will soon be turning onto Rte. 177/ Rosstown Rd.  The next 3.5 miles provides rolling terrain and outstanding views of Pinchot Lake and the surrounding countryside.  After turning right onto Alpine Rd, you will gain elevation over the next 2 miles until you once again reach the Conewago Day Use Entrance.
