America zofingen duathlon.
Short course takes about 3 hours. Lots of steep hills.
It looks like you said you are training for Lake Placid. The course for the race is the perfect place to train for Lake Placid. 15-mile loop with hard hills and great scenery that you can repeat many times without stopping for traffic, lock your bike in the car and do a brick. Used to go there every weekend to train.
Only issue with the race is the cold water swim could lead to panic-attack which would be discouraging going into Lake Placid. 2 swim caps and a pair of booties and get a real good warm up in and don't try to start the swim too fast and you should be ok.
Other pluses are it doesn't sell out, its is cheap, easy parking, not crowded, and some recently repaved roads. Its a well run race with a small hard core following.
Other negatives: not good for spectators as there are no services in the park. The weather has been tough.
