Competitors will pick up their bikes and head east towards Nobbys Beach along Wharf Rd. They will then proceed along Shortland Esplanade towards Newcastle Beach. Riders should take care with the raised speed mounds along this section. Riders then continue up Shortland Espl and turn left into Watt St (note a change to regular course) and ride up until the entry to King Edward Park off Reserve Rd. They then head up into King Edward Park. Once in the park the course is flat again and then climbs another 600 m to the top of the park. Cyclists then turn right onto the right hand side of The Terrace and then right onto Reserve Rd. Riders then head down Watt St and turn right at Church St onto Shortland Esplanade. (Please approach this corner with caution as you will be entering a chicane and no passing zone to allow safe turning on a difficult camber) They then return to the compound and then complete 2 more laps. 3 laps in total.
