The Nanahala Outdoor Center in Bryson City, NC is sponsoring a triathlon including a 12 mile mountain bike ride. The other two legs are a 5 mile trail run and a 5 mile flat water paddle (handicapped by boat type). It is going to be held the weekend of May 10 and 11. You can compete either as a team or as an individual. Call the NOC in Bryson City for information.I have received both private and public e-mail concerning my questions. I just DID put slicks on my mountain bike and although it “looks” a bit odd…
I’m so used to those big mother tread monsters….my speed on the way home from the bike shop was 3-4 mph faster than on the way there!!!! I also put a different headset on it (slightly higher angle and shorter) and I will be upgrading (?) to clipless in two more weeks (got to do one step at a time) I started swimming last week…and sunk like a rock!! That and all the chlorine that I drank made for a real fun morning!! Well….I am hoping for some assistance in the swim dept. and will keep ya’ll(I know, I know, it’s a Texas thing, but I figured, if you’re with the natives, may as well SOUND like ‘em, right?)
updated on that. New training program is being developed as we type…and I’ll probably post that next week for some feedback. Didn’t see the original post, so I don’t know where Augie is BUT for those of you in the Eastern US check out www.triath.com. This is the home page for Triathlantic, an org that promotes traditional triathlons, road and mountian bike biathlons. I have done both the latter – excellent organization, free lunch, T-shirts, prizes for probably about 1/3 of the entrants, etc. A great day racing. He has events from Vermont down through N. Carolina. Check it out! (P.S. if you don’t like running but know someone who does you can form a relay team!) He’s poor, so I think he would be uncomfortable paying as much as $300 (This is a reasonable price for a 4 year old mountain bike — we’re not looking for anything off the rack here…). My other friend is looking for a nicer AND smaller bike. He’d like a newer, Deore equipped bike with a 16 to 17 inch frame. He will pay $300 to $400, and thus, expects the bike to be in good shape. If you have such a bike as these that I’ve described, let me know.
