The Bike Course starts from the transition at Magic Island located in Ala Moana Beach Park.
Cyclists head out onto Ala Moana Blvd. at the east entrance of the park and ride west to the Nimitiz Highway and then head to the Kamehameha Highway.
Athletes make a u-turn before the famous gate to Pearl Harbor at Arizona Blvd. and head back east on the Kamehameha Highway which will take them back under the viaduct where they will make a right turn onto Lagoon Drive.
