  • What type of bike should I ride?

    Although a road bike is recommended, the flat course makes the ride suitable for almost any bike. Many first-timers borrow a bike or use mountain or hybrid bikes. Of course, you will likely complete the ride in a faster time if you use a road bike and are used to riding one; however, you will be able to complete the race on anything with two wheels. Make sure it’s is in good working order and roadworthy. Marshalls will be looking over bikes in the racking area.

the swim

*Provisional route (subject to final approval) 3 LAPS

The Sundowner Triathlon, East Yorkshire: 1.9Km

Comprising a 1.9km smooth open water lake swim in the safe man-made Allerthorpe Lake.

The swim at Allerthorpe Lakeland Park is a 1.9Km open water swim set in the shallow and clear Allerthorpe Lakeland Park. Water depth is no more than 5 ft, so it’s pretty easy to stand up should you feel the need; it’s a swim, though, so no walking is allowed. The swim is wetsuit legal, so for all of us “weaker” swimmers, the wetsuit will really help keep those legs up to reduce drag.

Allerthorpe Lakeland Park is well sheltered from the wind, so the water is flat and not choppy, making breathing so much easier, because other than the splashes from fellow Tri-athletes, there are no waves.

Having completed the swim, it’s an easy jog to the bike rack to locate your bike and prepare for the 90k bike leg.

the bike
