I volunteered to help at a triathalon this last weekend, my first experience around such an event.
In the parking lot of the rec center, they had a long row of bike racks. Each rider parked thier bike, and then laid out thier biking and running clothes next to the bike.
After the swim, the contestant would run out, pull on thier biking clothes, and take off. When they returned, a volunteer would take thier bike, and the contestant would make whatever changes they needed, then take off on the run.
No locks were needed, as volunteers were there with the bikes and equipment at all times.
It was a very interesting event, and I really learned a lot. Who knows, if a team needs a rider next year, I just might give it a try!
