Newbie - kit
I'm in training for my first triathlon albeit the fun one at Southam this year. I'm looking to do it on a budget in case it's my one and only triathlon.
My question which hope you guys can help out with is...do I need a tri suit or can I get away with swimming in my Lycra cycling shorts and then at transition put on a cycling top? My main area of concern is the padding and whether when that gets soaked it creates any problems?
Any advice is appreciated.
