Triathlon, what to wear?

You start with a short swim in the water.

run over to your Uni and ride 13 miles.

then hop off and run 3 miles.

If you swim in your padded b*ke shorts, will that be a problem riding 13 miles in a sopping wet sponge? I’ve seen yall mention tossing cornstarch down there, but in this case, wouldn’t you create a pasty mess?

There’s nowhere to strip off a bathing suit and put on dry cycling pants.

I’ve never done a Triathlon, how does one manage? Do you just ride in the wet pants? :thinking:

Re: Triathlon, what to wear?

u can do wonders inside a large towel wrapped around your waist,
practise at home first

i dont even want the image of ‘13 miles on a uni in a sopping wet pair of cycling shorts with corn starch down there’ in my head!

u’re going to have to deep fry yourself to get it clean!

aaaarrrrggghhh :astonished:

Sports-specific gear, naturally. My triathlete GF likes this company:

How about this:D

Now that’s a tri-athlete. I hope no one confuses that with a bi-athlete. Or trans-athlete.

The left knee in that photo now sports three small incisions and slightly less torn stuff floating around in it. I wore the bathing suit to surgery today.

Good one, harper.

But I’m more of a tri-athlete trapped in a are-u-kidding-athlete body.
