    Stepping up....But not sure what fourm...

    I am going to start group riding again in 2 weeks. my extended outage over the winter spring... I will be starting out with a 25 mile loop with my local club.


    I ride all the time but sprints in town 2 miles here 4 miles there. this will be my first real test in distance in 6 years.

    The last time i rode that distance it was on a trek 5200. this time it will be on my new touring frame With a tab and kid. +10 +20 for tab + 40 for the boy.

    Also i am singing up for my first "Race" a Y "TRY-atholon" 500 M swim, 13 mile ride, and 2 mile run.

    Anyone ever do a tri on a touring bike?

    I've seen it done. Heck, I've seen a triathlon done on a Mountain bike with slicks. The guy did pretty well, too.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.
