I was attempting to pre-ride the bike course, but I got stopped by the Martis Camp gatehouse guards on Schaffer Mill Road, mile mark 34. The guard was aware of the Ironman Lake Tahoe race, but he said he has not been given authorization to let participants pass now or on race day. As far as he knows, Martis Camp has not given the race permission to go through their property. He said he has turned dozens of riders around and will continue to do so.
If you are out riding the course, stay on Hwy 267 near the airport and proceed straight up over Brockway Summit without going through Martis Camp and Northstar.
If Ironman gets permission for us to pass, this section will be the second biggest climb on the course. Brockway Summit is the largest climb.
|Martis Camp will not allow you to ride this section.|
