Slight changes in Swim & Bike courses #CAA16

If you look on our website for more info about the courses, you will have noticed slight changes in our Swim and Bike Courses. Here is a summary of the changes:

Swim Course:
– you will swim counterclockwise this year
See this page for the new map.
Bike Course:
The highway A6 is being renovated and expanded, therefore our Bike Course needed to change:
– The turning point on the Havendreef will be right before crossing the highway A6 (at the Beginweg) instead of at the McDonalds. This year, this loop will be ridden in both the first and second round (LD only). Participants of the half distance will not ride this loop but stay on the left side of the course and will continue straight ahead where LD-participants turn right for their extra loops.
– This also means that the Hotspot on the Paralleldreef is not there this year, just as the coach station. The coach station is now located in the Havenkom (center of Almere Haven): park in the parking garage Havenzicht/Sluis and walk to the coach station following the signs. The coach station is located at the end of the Veerkade.
– There will also be a different route coming from the Gooimeerdijk going to the Poortdreef. See this page for a map of the route and a gpx file so you can see all the changes. You can also find a map of the course in the Athletes Guide 2016.
