I am a long time bike racer gonna see what this tri situation is all about. Signed up for a sprint down in Charlottesville on June 29. Anyone else going? Looking for rides/runs/swims. Training...most of the time. I run pretty good, pedal real fast and...know how to swim.. haha.
Live just South of Old Town Alexandria about a couple blocks from the GW Parkway if folks in this area are looking to get some work in.
Hi Paul -
Welcome to the club! C'mon out to our next club-wide this Thursday at Cantina Marina to meet many of your newest training partners.
We keep our club's social and training calendars up to date so if you can't make Thursday's event be sure to keep an eye out for our next event!
President, DC Tri Club
Some local OT Alex tips: Good bike shop in Old Town: Wheel Nuts. Open air pool: Cameron St. Indoor pools: Mt. Vernon Rec Ctr, and Chinquapin (latter will close for renovations soon). Open-water swimming: Across Wilson Bridge at National Harbor Thurs eves. Good l/d running group: Potomac Runners, Belle Haven park, Sat morns. And 150+ riders/triathletes roll from Freshbikes Arlington Tues eves.
Welcome to the club!
Coincidentally, I'll be in Charlottesville for a wedding the weekend of your sprint. I was planning to ride some of the mountain bike trails but maybe I'll have to check this out....
Yeah. I may stay the weekend and take a MTB Sunday as well. If nothing else there is a fun park on the S. side of cville.
And thanks for the training tips mosered.
