Ideally a trisuit, be it a one piece or a two-piece outfit. This is normally made of a quick drying material and has a little padding in the bottom half to provide some cushioning on the bike.
No suit? Here are some options.
Going from swim to bike to run, you’ll go through an area called the transition area. You’ll be allocated a specific spot where you set up your kit for the event.
You’ll need to rack your bike in the correct spot.
Laying your kit out logically is key for a smooth transition.
Think about the order in which you’ll need your equipment and then place your kit accordingly.
Balancing your helmet and glasses on your bike handles can work, but it’s likely they may be knocked off.
Make sure your bib number is attached to the top you’ll wear for the bike and run. You can wear a belt on to which you pin the bib number which is then easily spun round (the bib is on the back for the bike and front for the run).
If you’ve done a triathlon before then you’ll be aware of other ways to make your transitions faster!
