Last month I was up in Auckland visitIng friends and meeting up with the Triathlon NZ director of coaching. While I was there I hired a mountain bike and cycled the bike course for the Auckland triathlon as part of my race preparation. For those of you who are entering the race and have not had the opportunity to cycle the course then check out the information below. I can tell you that it is a hilly course but the climbs are short and there are only a couple of steepish ones. I've also added some photos of some of the climbs for you to visualize, as well as the elevations.
