(Note)about A course
・The general road (~20km) from the starting venue (Mukaishima Sports Park) to the highway (Innoshimaminami IC) is typically traveled at a pace of 17km/h by cyclists. However, there is an elevated slope (3% for about 1.5 km at the Innoshima Ohashi installation road (Mukaishima side), and 9% for about ~50m around the area after Shigei Touzaibashi).
・In order to control the entrance time into the expressway, we may ask to wait for 10 minutes maximum at the Innoshima Amenity Park.
・There is the reasonable probability of a traffic jam near the entrance to Inoshima’s way (7% incline slope for about ~600m).
・The average expected speed of cyclists on the highway is 20km/h or faster. However, a 4% slope continues for about 5km up till the Ikuchijima Minami IC, and a constant speed is needed in this area.
・Depending on the traffic situation and weather, if cyclists are not able to enter Ikuchijima Minami IC until after 8:25 AM, cyclists may be required to exit the highway at Ikuchijima Minami IC instead of Omishima IC and use the general road course to reach the finish line.
