I've done it 4 times with a group of mates. Bike is pan flat and fast as its draft legal, but can get a bit sketchy with some of the chains that come steaming through. Run is pan flat as well mainly on tarmac or the beachfront path. Swim can be the lumpiest part of the race, depending if there's any swell !!
Race starts and finishes close to the port olympic area of Barcelona, lots of handy hotels very close to the start.

Thanks for this - sounds lovely - I take it TT bikes are banned if itís draft legal?

Yes they are, and this is pretty well policed. You can use the draft legal tri bars, but they do check they don't extend beyond the brakes. We did see a couple of people turn up with TT bikes, but couldn't use them!!
