As a beginner, you need a bike – not a fancy bike, not a triathlon bike – but a bike in good working order with gears.
Equipment can be expensive and TriLaVie® coaches like to guide you to the best choices so you don't over-buy! Ask around and borrow to start. You'd be surprised how many friends or neighbors have something for triathlon to lend. Use the TriLaVie® recommended professionals and shops. TriLaVie® does NOT receive sponsorship or referral fees for any of our recommendations. We partner with professionals who we believe have the highest integrity and are experts in their fields.
