I'm moving in Alexandra Virginia starting Sept 18 as I am from Manila Philippines.
I have registered for TriRock Clearwater Florida on Nov and I'm preparing for
it. I also need to buy a tri bike there, does anybody have any recommended bike shops?
Also im looking to train 5 to 6 days a week. Ill be staying near Edsal Road
is that near where u all swim, bike and run? :-)
My manila envelope on Alexandria tri stuff contains the following:
Wheel Nuts in Old Town is a small, good shop. Has a weekly ride too.
Edsal is pretty far out from things. Check out the Freshbikes & Revolution bike shops in Arlington for rides & bike stuff (club discounts on purchases), and the nearby Washington-Lee high school Wednesday track & field runs. Performance Bikes in Alex has good prices. The Mt Vernon trail is too crowded for biking, better for running. Check out Potomac Runners marathon training group's runs in Alex and DC.
National Harbor Thursday swims may still be open when you arrive. Chinquapin pool in Alex has fast master's team, and is looking to expand to 50 meters.
Come to the club happy hour on the 3rd Thursday of the month to meet folks.
