Did stage one of the Tour Of New York this morning, and I must start by saying I love the New York course!
Now this wasn’t necessarily an issue for me today but I can see it becoming an issue, and has for many others already as I’ve seen on social media this morning… the unpublished lead in distance on the tour.
Todays course was advertised as 21 km, but there was a 9.5 km lead in…
There’s been people this morning who had planned their ride before work etc and had to bail because the total distance was a third longer than planned.
Would it be possible to advertise the lead in distance along with the lap distance?
Something like this:
[Stage 1: Oct 23 (Tues) - Route: The Highline] / 2 Laps
- Distance: 13 miles // 21 km - Elevation: 1174 ft // 358 m
- Lead in: 5.9 miles // 9.5 km - Total Course Length : 19 miles // 30.5 km
