Significant Ascents:

The Ironman Arizona bike course is a standard out and back up the iconic Beeline Hwy, one of the most scenic bike courses in the sport. The entire highway is a false flat, which gets slightly steeper until the turnaround, leading to a very fast return trip. It’s no wonder this course has yielded some of the fastest IRONMAN bike times on record.

The gradient stays under 5% for the entire course:
