Important Information regarding the La Salle Causeway Bridge

The bike course for crosses the metal La Salle Causeway bridge about a kilometre into the bike course.

During the race, the bridge will be restricted to one lane for motor vehicles (north lane) and one lane for cyclists (south lane).

Athletes should slow down when crossing the bridge. Do not change gears, pedal or brake as doing any of these may reduce your traction on the metal grate surface. You are advised to coast across the entire bridge.

Be forewarned that the lift bridge may go up to allow the passage of boat traffic.

In the event that the BRIDGE IS UP, please follow these instructions:

  1. Race to the point at which volunteers are recording race numbers. They will record the time at which you stop.
  2. Make sure the volunteer is able to see your bib number.
  3. When the bridge goes back down, volunteers will record your start time.
  4. The time stopped will be subtracted from your race time after you complete the bike course.

In the event of RAIN, 

If the roadway and pavement are wet it will be MANDATORY that you STOP AND WALK your bike across the lift bridge or use the sidewalk, otherwise YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

Volunteers at the bridge have been instructed to tell you to walk across the bridge or the sidewalk. You are urged to use extreme caution when crossing the bridge. Under wet conditions continuing across the metal bridge at race speed is extremely dangerous and could result in a fall and serious injury.

Remember that you are sharing the roadway with vehicular traffic so be safe and ride carefully.
