Bike Safety Plan/Policy


The one loop bike course takes place in the City and Town of Newburgh located in the beautiful and scenic Hudson Valley. The course is a typical mix of rolling hills and flats. The majority of rolling inclines are located during the 4 mile stretch on Fostertown Road, where most of the separation will begin during the cycling leg of this Triathlon. Do well here and your home free! Soon after making a left on Mill Street, this cycling course offers beautiful countryside views along with fast roads. The course turns very fast once you make the left onto Route 52. Let it fly during this 8 mile stretch and your home in no time!

OCTri offers support through all major intersections. Please note this is a one loop bike course so there are no U-turns to be concerned about.

This 24.8 mile bike course is filled with scenic views, climbs and descents. Please pay attention to all OCTRI road signs.
