Considering doing a local Triathalon. To me the bike route looks brutal. 1400 feet in elevation over 14 miles. 1/2 mile in there is a 200ft. elevation gain over 1/2 a mile.
Does this seem brutal? The run is flat 5K and the swim is 1/2 mile in a small lake.
It would be my first Tri. I do bike lots...just did a Metric Century (moderatly hilly) and I do run lots( 5k races alot) and I can swim decent and for a long time. Do bricks 20 mile bike, 3.5 mile runs once a week. But this bike route seems killer.
Advice? I really want to pop my Tri cherry before the colder months to give me something to feed on during winter training. But...That bike route....ugghhhh.
