Triathlon Transition 1, from Pool to Bike

Facebook Question

Jaime Bennett Maceno – I am planning on doing my very first sprint triathlon in August. The swimming takes place in a pool. So my biggest question is about transitioning from the pool to the bike . I need a sports bra when I run so do I wear my sports bra under my bathing suit ??? Do u just park your bike somewhere and what tie your shoes to it ??? I have no clue what to expect. Help/Advice would be VERY appreciated.

one more thing. Where do u put your stuff ? Like towel , shoes i pod ect ?? Sorry for all the questions- I just want to make sure I do this right and it goes smoothly. – Hi Jaime, Congrats on your first Triathlon!

  1. Wear your sports bra under your swim suit.
  2. The organizers will tell you where to put your stuff. Check out “Race Day” for more details. Although it’s written for an outdoor tri, you will get many useful tips in the T1 and T2 articles.
