Lake Erie. The winds had changed direction so the chop and waves were much less than there had been the previous two days during practice swims.
Mass start from beach. 2 rectangle course with a run between the rectangles. Course was well marked.

Out and back with a two loop course. Country roads. Corn and bean fields. Pass through a little town. Flat course with only a few rollers. Never left the big ring. WINDY!! Some of the roads were recently chip and sealed - very bumpy!! A tough ride due to the rough roads and the wind.
I rode this course once in early June. The roads were much smoother and there was not this wind.
A boring course. There were very few fans/spectators. I thought the town would have lots of fans for support, but there were only a few people around cheering. Very quiet. Be ready to ride solo for much of the 112 miles.
