Practice Triathlons

Many of our members have expressed interest in doing some “practice triathlons.” The main problem seems to be finding a safe place to swim, with convenient areas for a bike ride and a run. We are going to do a “wet run” on Sunday March 24th at the Waterford Lakes pool. It is not a sanctioned event, there are no

Five riders enjoyed starting and finishing to the sound of a cowbell, and received double points for braving the alarmist weather reports. The first
