The Bike

The second leg of TriFuzion: 122 mile or 56

We have partnered with Bike the Coast as our bike leg event. Now it its second year Bike the Coast is taking place on November 5th starting at the Oceanside Pier and touring down the coast turning back north with a loop in Sorrento Valley.

The TriFuzion course differs from the BIke the Coast with one loop on the San Luis Rey bike path to add the necessary additional mileage. This will be added at the beginning of the ride and after TriFuzion athletes have picked up their 6 or 12 miles they will follow the Ride the Coast route. For those doing the full TriFuzion, athletes will be two loops of the Ride the Coast course only.

The 50 mile course for Bike the Coast – Taste the Coast starts at the Oceanside Pier and goes north to Surfrider Way before beginning a southbound trip to Encinitas.  The route tours the beaches on Highway 101 through Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach and Del Mar.  This is an out and back course with a turn-around and aid station on Sorrento Valley Road south of Del Mar. (approximately 24.2 miles from the Pier).  There is also SAG support for all riders at the start/finish near the Oceanside Pier.

Following Bike the Coast, athletes will be treated to the awesome Taste the Coast event featuring everything from street tacos to Jamaican BBQ to Italian Ice and craft brewed beer.

Just for TriFuzion

While Bike the Coast is only in its second year it follows along in the tradition of its sister event Bike the Hills in May and if you were to go to their site you may notice there is no mention of a 56 or 122 mile option. Fortunately for us, the director for Bike the Coast has a long history with triathlon and we have worked together to add the necessary mileage and staff to make sure TriFuzion athletes get their ride on!!

TriFuzion athletes will be sent out early from the Oceanside Pier start line to pick up the necessary distance on the San Luis Rey bike path. This will only be done once as the athletes will complete their ride following the traditional Bike the Coast route. We will have mats placed on the course to insure all TriFuzion athletes complete their mileage.

The Transition

With the second leg of TriFuzion in the books it is time to start ramping up the run. There is a comfortable 14 weeks between legs to insure a gradual build to your marathon. One of the nicest aspects of TriFuzion is that training does not put too much time pressure on our athletes. This is especially important since you will be training over two holiday periods. An added bonus here is your training is going to keep the holiday weight gain away. Your friends and family will be jealous as you eat that second serving with out a thought. Run Baby Run. The end in near!!
