For you to get a sense of the short track and be able to allocate your forces properly, we have below a description of the short track every kilometer so that you can come well prepared to start.
NOTE! The new distance on the “short course” is not quite nailed so some changes will occur.
The start of Västkusten Runt place at the event area in the center of Gothenburg. Already from the start you get a couple of scenic miles on Hisingen with relatively little car traffic this Saturday morning. Bohusbron takes you from Hisingen to Kungälv where after passing the foot of the Bohus fortress you can cycle through central Kungälv. Then you have 25 km of relatively flat rides in front of you up to Stora Höga, where you depart from the long run and turn off towards Ucklum.
Here is the toughest part of the course with some uphills against Ucklum and on to Västerlanda. Try to save some power and do not go too hard on the slopes. Once in Västerlanda wait a few fairly easily rolled flat mil down to Kungalv again.
The last miles go over Hisingen and after about 13 miles you go to the finish. You have now cycled 13 miles through southern Bohuslän, completed a climb of about 1,100 height meters of altitude.
We hope that as a participant in Västkusten Runt got to experience the beautiful scenery and the varied climate of the West Coast offers. At the finish waiting medal and a meal so you can regain energy for your achievement.
