This is the City of Flagstaff Reservoir: Upper Lake Mary. Average lake temperature for the last few years has been exactly 71° F. Wetsuits OK. Wave starts.
Is there a more beautiful bike course in the West? Out and back course on paved roads with wide bike shoulders. Olympic and half iron courses has three consecutive hills near the turnaround. Beautiful vistas with lake views the whole way. 70.3 Hilly course with nothing steeper than a 395 feet climb, and great views of San Francisco Peaks.
Out and back run on paved roads along beautiful Lake Mary. 70.3 Half iron course climbs a decent hill (385') and then is flat for 10 miles.
