The bike will be an out and back course on a smooth flat road outside of Manteo and into Mashoes. (yes Mashoes:-) ). The bike portion features a rolling hill over the Manns Harbor Bridge; a 2.65 mile long bridge over the Croatan sound. There is very little traffic and abundant views of the soundside marsh and wetlands.
