Will - you forgot the most important thing - bring a good attitude! As Simon's separate forum thread notes, it will be crowded out there due to other groups doing practice rides on the course.

Be safe and relax -- it's just a workout. No one will chide you if you just want to stand guard over the potato chips instead of doing the 10k run, and if you want to ride in an old t-shirt instead of rocking the tri-jersey/arm cooler combo, that's fine too (so long as you're wearing a helmet). Take care of yourself out there and have fun!

We're DC Tri! Good attitudes are expected!

And so is kicking some tri- ass. :)

I can bring one other person in my car...and if someone has a bike rack I can borrow, I could bring a couple of people. See everyone sunday.
