Relay in 3.5 weeks, what to do?
I have been asked by a relay team to bike for them in a sprint (20mi). I have never participated in any race, triathlon or otherwise. The rest of my team is laid back and I'm sure it will be fun, but what advice can you give a relatively novice road cyclist for his first triathlon? I am looking into clip-on aero bars, is there anything else I should be looking for? I currently ride about 25 miles 5 times a week, granted I'm not racing anyone but my times are pretty slow, ~17-18mph on flat terrain. Do I have a shot at getting faster by then?
Any help would be greatly appreaciated, or you can just tell me to pipe down and head back to the road forum
