Hi allI finally realised that, without a bike, I was never actually going to do a Triathlon. Plus it makes me a pretty crappy member of a Tri club. So I’ve decided to get some wheels, but have no…Continue

"Hi Leanne It's certainly an exciting and daunting event, buying a bike! There are a lot of things to consider. How you want to use it mostly, price range and personal preference. There is not one bike that will fit all criteria. If looking at…"

"Agree with everything Colin and Charles have mentioned in the posts.  But as a slight alternative maybe look at an Adventure Road Bike or Gravel Bike ( pending on what you had in mind for The Country Element ). Almost the same Geometry as a…"

"Defiantly worth heading to Balfe's Bikes in Dulwich or Streatham - asks the guys there for some advice. They have a range of bikes in the store but I'm sure they have access to a wider range if needed. They can kit you out with a helmet,…"

"Hi Leanne, how exciting to be about to buy a bike! It will change your life. You can get a good road bike from a reputable bike shop such as Balfes (East Dulwich or Streatham), Cadence in Crystal Palace or Brixton Cycles without spending too much…"

Advice Wanted: My First Bike (no stablizers required...hopefully)

Hi allI finally realised that, without a bike, I was never actually going to do a Triathlon. Plus it makes me a pretty crappy member of a Tri club. So I’ve decided to get some wheels, but have no idea where to start.I guess I’ll mainly use it for road cycling but also fancy some more country routes to escape the terrifying London traffic. Is it worth looking at a hybrid?I don’t have a fixed budget, but not silly expensive in case we don’t get on. Or I’d be gutted if it got nicked the first time…See More

"Hi Leanne, Yes usually at the lido on Saturday mornings and now some weekday evenings as it has started it's summer opening hours. I also did the Dart last year - it's great!  If you work in the city, the Victoria Docks are excellent…"

"Hi Leanne I am doing the dart 10km and so is Olivia. Which day are you doing? We’re doing Sunday.  I think Colin’s right we need to build time up in the water. I did the Jubilee last year which is just under 10km and spent time…"

Dart10km

Is anyone doing the Dart 10km this year? Hoping to find some training buddies as we move into the summer season. It would also be nice to see a familiar face at the event itself as, having not done anything like this before, I imagine it’s going to be a tough one! Massively looking forward to it anyway. For those who’ve done it in previous years, any advice very welcome!Thanks,leanneSee More
