Let’s go shopping – the bike

Taking part in your first Tri doesn’t mean you need an array of expensive Kit, just a few essential bits and you’ll be ready to go.

THE BIKE

Helmets are mandatory and no triathlon event will let you take part without one. Ensure you purchase one that meets British standards, is comfortable and well fitted.

Most novice triathletes won’t need bike shoes, these clip into the pedals and provide a more powerful and efficient pedal stroke. Trainers are sufficient for the bike leg.

Repair kits can often be forgotten. Ensure you carrya puncture repair kit with you and you know how to use it, you could have a long way to walk otherwise!

Clothing can be daunting as there is so much choice, but  a basic rain jacket, and cycle shorts  are key items. These will start at around £25, as ever fit is important.
