Cycle leg 22km

3 x 7.4km

Competitors will pick up their bikes and head east towards Nobbys Beach along Wharf Rd. We have permission to use the new Horseshoe Beach section of road. This will be a left turn on a very wide new piece of roadway. You will only use this on the way out, not the way back. After this section you 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 the old South Newcastle Beach access 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) They then return to the compound and then complete 2 more laps. 3 laps in total.
