***BIKE COURSE ALTERATIONS for 2016***
Due to construction and a request from local law enforcement, the Olympic and Sprint Bike Courses have changed for 2016.

CHANGES:
The race will no longer traverse the Huntsville Dam area or Follies Road in Jackson Township. When you get to the end of Huntsville-Idetown Road, which is across from Huntsville Nursery, you will turn right and head back to the Penn State Wilkes-Barre Campus. 

The Olympic AND Sprint Distances will travel through Noxen, which will eliminate the merge at the intersection of Lakeside Drive and Kunkle-Alderson Road in Harveys Lake. All riders will take on Sordoni Hill on their way back from Noxen to Harveys Lake.

The Olympic Distance and Aquabike Athletes ONLY will make a left out of the swim area and complete a 5.5 mile loop through Harvey's Lake and Lake Township. They will then proceed to Route 415 and make the left toward Noxen.
