No Gear & No Idea.. Beginner
I am about to begin training for my first triathlon. I have booked to do the Olympic Tri in London in July and before this hope to do a Sprint in May (to get use to the atmosphere and to give me an idea of what to expect).
As for 'gear' I truly have no idea... I've listed a few questions sorry in advance if these are very basic!
1.Wet suit - should I purchase a wet suit - hoping May/July water would be warm enough not too..
2. Tri suit or tri top and bottoms - is this just preference?
3. Would Tri suit be worn under the wetsuit for the swim?
4.Bike - I have been measured so know the size I need, as a women can I ride a mans bike - I will be buying a second hand one for budget reasons.
5.Do the bikes have to be clip ins pedals?
Many advice on any of the above would be helpful.
Thank you in advance!!
