The City Bikes IRONMAN® 70.3 Miami, created and organized by Miami Tri Events, is a unique racing experience that draws thousands of fitness enthusiasts and features one of the biggest expositions in the IRONMAN® 70.3 circuit. The race includes a 1.2-mile swim in the protected bay waters adjacent to Bayfront Park, a 56-mile bike ride from downtown Miami to Florida’s Everglades, and a 13.1-mile run through metropolitan Miami.
Pop Artist Romero Britto lent his artistic talents and designed the art graphics that appear on the frame of the Canyon Speedmax CF 9.0 triathlon bike that World Triathlon Champion Leanda Cave will race at the 2014 IRONMAN® World Championship in Kaiua-Kona, Hawaii, on Saturday, Oct. 11. When the expo begins, athletes and spectators will have an opportunity to bid live on the bike and other items. To place online bids, visit www.charitybuzz.com/brittobike. The auction will conclude Tuesday, Oct. 28, with all proceeds going to support the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation.
