Hundreds of athletes are expected to participate in a bike race and a triathlon this weekend, meaning delays are likely in the morning hours on several major James City County roads.
The Jamestown Gran Fondo — a bike race where riders can go 30, 62 or 100 miles — will cause delays from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Jamestown Road near the ferry, Greensprings Road, 4H Club Road and John Tyler Highway, according to a county news release.
On Sunday, the Jamestown Triathlon will cause delays on John Tyler Highway between Greensprings Road and Monticello Avenue. Police will be on scene Sunday to direct traffic during the race to try to cut down on delays.
Cyclists will be on the roads throughout the day Sunday, so drivers are asked to exercise caution at all times.
Maps of the Jamestown Gran Fondo route can be found here, while maps of the Traithlon can be found here.
The triathlon is a USA Triathlon Regional Championship. The top 33 percent of finishers per age group will qualify for the 2015 Olympic-Distance National Championships in Milwaukee.
