This excuse doesn’t wash anymore with the Cowra Triathlon Club now the owner of 12 bikes that can be used by competitors of all ages wanting to try out the sport.
The club has bikes to suit five to 10 year-olds as well as competitors in their teens and adult years.
Simply arrive at triathlon tonight between 5pm and 6pm and enquire at registration.
The idea is that you use one of the loan bikes until deciding if you wish to take up the sport on a more permanent basis.
As an added bonus you can race twice with the Cowra club for free before you have to pay registration.
Racing resumed for the 2017-18 season last Friday night with the change in the course seeing none of the two lappers break the 30 minute mark.
John Wood ran down Mark Fisher to take the two lapper with visitor Kim Dale the first female competitor home from a very fit looking Sarah Armstrong who doesn’t appear to have put on too many kilos following her European sojourn which included a visit to Oktoberfest after the world championships.
Darcy Foxall turned a few heads in the two lapper, completing the course ahead of a lot more experience competitors. This time last year Darcy couldn’t swim 50 metres.
Koren Anderson and Rory Sullivan were our only two one lap competitors last week so take the early lead in the club championships.
In the Novice a lot of our juniors from last season stepped up with Laura Price showing she’s lost none of her run pace, finishing in 12.17 ahead of Henry Fagan in 12.31.
Kids course numbers were down a little, so kids have a word with your mates. We have plenty of bikes for them to use if they don’t have a bike.
Racing is on again on Friday night from the Cowra Aquatic Centre at 6pm. Registration from 5pm.
