Bike Course

1208260626   Flickr   Photo Sharing  600x398 Bike Course

The bike course starts out flat and fast before taking riders into a series of rolling hills, giving them the chance to experience the beauty of the surrounding Maine farmland and countryside.  Tall pine trees provide shade over much of the course, which winds through Saco, Dayton, Lyman, Waterboro, Hollis, and Old Orchard Beach.

“As a destination for outdoor enthusiasts, we are thrilled the Revolution3 Triathlon is coming to Portland in 2011,” said Jeff Miller, president and CEO, Travel Portland.  “Competitors will swim, bike and run through Portland’s unique urban setting, while those traveling to support them will find tax-free shopping and culinary options to fill their stay.”

Olympic-REV (25miles)

Overall this course is flat and fast with a short climb as you exit T1. There are some decent rollers around miles 8-10 and then again at 15-17. Lots of shaded areas with a gradual downhill grade as you come back into T2.

Half-REV (56miles)

The bike course starts out flat and fast before taking riders into a series of rolling hills, giving them the chance to experience the beauty of the surrounding Maine farmland and countryside. Tall pine trees provide shade over much of the course, which winds through Saco, Dayton, Lyman, Waterboro, Hollis, and Old Orchard Beach. Most of the climbing is completed by the midway point with a long low grade climb on rte 5 (miles 10-15) and some rollers on South Waterboro Road (miles 19-25). The back half of the course consist of some fast flat/ downhill sections that bring you back into Saco. After that it’s a relatively flat and fast ride into T2.

Overview

It's almost impossible not to have fun at Old Orchard Beach. The low surf makes this a favorite spot for swimming, sunbathing, and making new friends. When the kids get hungry they can explore the boardwalk for pizza, french fries, hot dogs and cheeseburgers, or you can choose from the many family style restaurants around town. Try your luck on the video games, jump on a ride, treat yourself to an ice cream or a cold soda. Thrills, chills and frills-take your pick or do it all. <read more>
