Walking Your Bike in a Triathlon

Triathlon Event  I’m so glad to find this site. Hopefully the following question would not happen after proper training and changing gears, but if you were in the bike portion of a triathlon and had to walk your bike up a crazy hill, would you be disqualified?.
Bill from Pennsylvania

Triathlon Event Hi Bill,
Thank you for contacting TriathaNewbie.com and thanks for the kind words!

No, you would not be disqualified. If you need to get off of your bike and walk it, you can. Just be sure that you train on the bike you will use for the event in hilly areas so that you are prepared.

Be well
