Ride more, ride for fun. If you live where it's too hilly, throw the bike in the car and drive to somewhere flatter and ride there. Gotta get some fun in it!
Getting better and faster takes time and effort. You'll tone your legs up some, that helps, from then on, you slowly build muscle and lose weight to get better. If you want to get better fast, then you have to ride a LOT, not a little.
Take a good look at your running, swimming, cycling, and see which you need to improve on most to complete the event and to start making overall time goals. (I know on the Ironman type events, the major part of the time is the cycling, so it's also the major thing to try to improve on.)
