Spinning at Performance Bike. That’s me above the sun towel.

We had our first group training on Saturday: a 40 minute session on the mag trainers on our bikes followed by an easy 10 minute run, just to get us used to the idea of having a transition. Everyone brought their own bikes; some had some very nice (expensive!) tri bikes, a few (like me) just had mountain bikes. I don’t know if I’m ready to spend the big bucks yet but I would like to at least have a decent road bike to use. An avid cyclist friend of mine, speaking from years (and miles) of experience, indicated that being fitted for a bike is more important than the components. I’ll probably track down an inexpensive bike on sale in the off season and pay the extra money to have a comprehensive fitting done. We shall see.
