Important: To comply with existing pathway rules of use, the bike portion of the triathlon & duathlon from the T-Zone to the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway will not be timed and will not be included in the final finish time. Participants are advised that while on the pathway, the ‘normal’ rules of pathway use apply to your cycling – including traveling at 20K per hour or less, not  using aerobars, and cycling to the right of the centre line. Cyclists who fail to comply with these requirements will be disqualified by event officials.
