I assume there are also shuttle buses from Hilpoltstein to Roth. Check out the official program.
According to the website The Shuttle Bus doesn't go from the Swim Start. It goes from Buchenbach to Roth and back. Buchenbach is to the North West of Roth. Whereas the Swim Start is to the South East in Hilpolstein. It's essentially a "park and ride" from the car park.
There IS a athlete transfer from Roth to Swim Start in the morning. But nothing for spectators at that hour! Which rules out parking in Roth and then using the shuttles
It's my first time at Roth this year.
My "rough" plan is to park near the Swim Start. My spectator will watch the start and T1, then walk the 2k to Solar Hill. Watch myself come through there at least once. Possibly if they feel up to it, try and catch other parts of the course in the immediate vicinity.
Then they will drive from the start area car park to a car park near the finish. Either Roth or Buchenbach (and then get the shuttle into Roth itself) If anyone is familiar with the area on race day. Are there road closures on race day. Or will it be relatively straightforward to drive?
Not sure how we're getting back to T1 to collect my wetsuit/goggles bag. Either it's a drive back to T1 after the race, or do they do a bag collection and bring them to T2?
Similarly if I drop my T1 bag somewhere on Saturday will they take it to the race start overnight?
Talk on the website of transport back to the swim start. But that doesn't say athletes/spectators or whether you can take a bike on the transport
Everyone talks about German efficiency, but their website is horrible to navigate! And the info is spread out al over the place.
Should be 1 "Race Guide" PDF to download that tells you everything, gives you maps, talks about spectators etc etc.
And another "Rules" PDF for everything else
