While I'm still scratching my head, plotting A Quickie in the Hills course up the Port Hills, I'm embarking on the city event route as well, just to really confuse myself.
This one's going to be a toughie, as I'll have to involve quite a bit of traffic management no doubt. Of course that also means forking out substantial amounts of cash...While I've considered getting my traffic controller's certificate (to Level Two) I think I'm probably best to bite the bullet and enlist the services of professionals. I'd rather get this done right than make any potentially harmful mistakes!
So the picture here shows the Red Zone as it currently stands. I rode my bike around it, staying as close as possible to the perimeter, I didn't go down the ReStart Mall though. I'm thinking this will have to be a looping course, as it's only 5.83km in total, and I'm wondering how I'm going to fit in a bike stage if I decide to go with a duathlon. Maybe this one would be easier just to leave as a short run? Would be great for attracting people from out of town who are into a bit of fitness and want to see where Christchurch CBD is at. I'm thinking out loud here...
