I BOUGHT A BIKE!!!

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

So after complaining that I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on this Tri, I have now bought a Tri Suit (got a great deal from www.swimbikerun.com for $29.99 for top and bottom each (normally $59.99) and then this morning I broke down and bought a Road Bike! I figure even if I don't do another Tri, I want a bike so I can do some outdoor exercise during the summer, since I don't like to run in the heat.

Bike should arrive in the next 2-3 days and I look forward to getting on it! I'm going to test out the saying "As easy as riding a bike!" I've had some people tell me about getting clips, aero bars, etc. etc. and I honestly don't want to hear about anything else I need to get LOL! The only other thing I'll buy is a helmet which I'll get from Walmart for $16 (an Ironman friend of mine gave me the thumbs up for it's quality).

My local Rec Center pool opens next week so I'll go there as it's the same distance as the pool I'll be swimming in for the Tri. I went by to look at it today and each lap is 25 yards (Mom's pool is a little over 10 yards). Wonder if I can get from one end to the other...

The adventure continues...Wishing all of you an awesome day!

    You live in Florida and you just got a bike? Well, it's about time.

We bought ours two months after we moved here three years ago. I agree with you on the Summer heat. We have the best bike trails around here to crosstrain on. Just be safe and watch the other vehicles especially when you are on the bike lanes. I try to stay on our Pinellas Trail close to my house. I wish you years of enjoyment and good luck on your Tri. I've got a Duathlon on my calendar for next year...it's only a matter of time before I embrace a Tri!

    Congrats on the new bike! There is always something you can buy when you are doing events but for the 1st one you just need to have the basics.
