Beijing International Triathlon – Bike Course: 40 km
The 40 km bike course starts at Transition in Qing Long Lake Park. This fun and challenging course takes cyclists down wide and smoothly paved boulevards through Fengtai where participants will pass brand new developments with modern architecture as well as quaint villages and farmland that will feel like a transport back in time. At just about the half-way point, cyclists will enjoy a beautiful climb up towards Qian Ling Mountain on a pristine mountain road that meanders up and down the ancient Buddhist mountain with technical turns and scenic vistas. The ride down the mountain will cruise through narrow streets in the villages and eventually back to the wide, tree-lined boulevards to Qing Long Lake Park.
