I am racing Galveston this weekend and just wondering if anyone else has done this race? I have heard some horror stories about the bike course, but not from verified sources. Anyone have any input?

I did the Galveston Half Ironman back when it was Gulfman, in 2005. I don't know whether the course is exactly the same, but it's Galveston, so there aren't a lot of options. If you like flat, you'll like the bike. It's likely to be windy - though the year I did it we had a tailwind going out and the wind changed directions literally, I swear, right when I reached the turnaround, so we had a tailwind both directions, which was rockin' (and has given me a half ironman bike PR that I only have a small chance in hell of ever achieving again). Maybe you'll have such luck.

Overall I had a lot of fun. Let me know if you have other specific questions. Otherwise, have a great race!
