  • Do a little warm up exercise before you participate

Transition Area

  • Take note of the entry and exit points 
  • Set up your bike, place your shoes at the point closest to your bike with your T-shirt and helmet alongside, keep your equipment bag out of the way. 
  • Place your helmet so it is easy to put on
