I have edited the bike pics and I managed to get a lot of riders (but not everyone), 211 photos of bike leg only are uploading to here
With over 100 teams of three there were a ton of bikes all numbered up, waiting for their riders, from the most serious of triathletes with aero helmet, deep dish wheels, full tri suit
To comfy t-shirt, runners and mountain bike
Right through to this bike complete with basket and I believe a GPS (being held?....maybe another use for Iphone)
The expressions on peoples faces ranged from happiness in being part of this great event
To nerves?? about the hill just ahead
and those who were out for fun and wanted to tell the world that they were smashing this
The owner of the Green bike, obviously had used the WD40 and was speeding down the road ready to take on the hill
NO whips were needed to keep this machine under control...a lot of work went in though, the "horse" has a head, a body (around the top bar), and a tail......Great effort!
As long as you checked off the list on the way out, the bike didnt matter, you just had to race (or ride), 7kms and get back to race or at least run/jog the final 2kms to finish
Then perhaps head over to Gary Jackson from Giant Bicycles to check out a new Giant
With the pictures, you can download facebook size files for free, just add to cart (digital downloads) and follow the prompts, they are only a small file, but a great way to show off your acheivement of a triathlon...unfortunately I wasn't able to get everyone on the bike, but the run pics are coming so check back on Wednesday...they are all just waiting to upload.
