    Parking is limited inside the park and is approx. ¼ - ½ mile from the transition area. Make arrangements to carry your race gear this distance. Carpooling is highly encouraged. There will be volunteers to guide you to the parking area.

    Do not park on the side of the roadways inside the park-follow the volunteers’ direction.

    You must walk out of the transition area to mount your bike.

    Watch for cars on the bike course. We do everything possible to ensure your safety but we cannot control everyone. The course should still be considered open to vehicles. Pay attention.

    You must dismount your bike prior to re-entering the transition area.

    This is a sanctioned USAT event and therefore all USAT rules will be strictly enforced. If you are not familiar with the rules please go to and read!!
