    Hi Susan, I would say the Luray bike course is rolling. Some people consider it hilly but I didn’t think it was too bad, less hilly than Columbia Tri if you are familiar with that one. There is a hill at the start and finish but in between there’s a nice descent and then a false flat/gradual climb to go back up and do it again. The only steep hill that I remember is the last one before the finish. We have the bike course here in the club library if you’d like to check it out.

    The run felt more rolling to me than the bike and also got a bit hot with the lack of shade on the backside. Otherwise it’s a pretty course!

    I hear Culpepper is rolling too but don’t know how it compares.

    Yes the Centennial Tri which I think has the same bike course as the old Columbia Tri (not the new Columbia Association Tri). We used to do the bike loop for the spring Bricknic when they were in Columbia.
