However, unlike IM France, I believe the Ch'Tri bike route is fairly flat but exposed and potentially windy. Haven't done it but I think the IMCH bike route includes a couple of climbs.
As for the swim, if French rowing lakes are anything like English ones, Lake Zurich would be more pleasant experience.
I think FB and Petal have done one of the Ch'tri events so may be able to provide an accurate comparison.
