The Bike – 263 Miles
The 263 mile bike segment is broken down into two stages. Stage 1 follows the swim and consists of a 91 miles bike ride. Due to the loop swim, the Stage 1 bike will start from the swim start / finish. The flat, fast ride will head south to the City of St. Cloud and ends in Cocoa, Florida at the Lone Cabbage Fish Camp. The 172 mile Stage 2 starts from Cocoa, Florida and heads through scenic towns of Christma, Sanford, Mount Dora and through the “Gems of the Hills” of Clermont, where world-class triathletes have made it their home. The ride will end in Oakland, FL, a charming, one-hundred plus year old historic town in the heart of Central Florida. For detailed info, see the bike course maps.
