    Hi all — I’ll be camping near Luray this weekend, and I’m looking for a place to do an 1.5 hr ride (nothing too crazy, it’s my recovery week).

    Is the Luray sprint tri course a good ride, from Lake Arrowhead? Wondering how busy the roads are. Thank you! (Map/cue sheet: https://luraytriathlon.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/2015-luray-sprint-triathlon-maps.pdf)

    It’s pretty rural, so the traffic should be ok.

    Riding the course before the race is highly recommended, due to the “false flat” of the 1st half of the circle, which appears level but is a pretty stiff climb. Also watch for the steep hill near the end of the course.

    Thank you! I can report that even in the afternoon, traffic was light and fairly ok, and it was a gorgeous ride. Also: I only remembered your warnings until I was face-to-face with those climbs. Whew!
