Do bikes get stolen at triathlons?
The vast majority of bike theft at events occurs immediately after the race. This isn’t generally a problem with major events like Ironman, where security is strict and the bike pickup window is late in the evening, after the event has ended or is near completion.
Where do you put your bike during a triathlon?
Put your cycle shoes/trainers next to the back or front wheel, depending which way round your bike is. Put them on a towel. If you are wearing socks, open them up so they will slide on easily.
Do triathletes Pee on the bike?
On to the matter at hand – yes, some triathletes do, in fact, pee on their bikes. If it’s not obvious, triathletes pee while riding their bike so they don’t have to stop – saving precious time for competitive races.
What do you wear during a triathlon?
In a triathlon you want to wear what is called a triathlon suit or a triathlon kit (a top/bottom combo) designed to be worn in the swim, the bike, and finally the run. This also means that you need not take any clothing off. You wear your wetsuit (if needed) on top of your triathlon suit/kit.
Can you walk your bike during a triathlon?

Do you change clothes in a triathlon?
Clothing for a Triathlon You can opt to change into clothes specific to each leg of the race —or not. Some triathletes choose to do the whole race in a swimsuit for quicker transitions. Other swimmers simply pull on a pair of shorts before jumping on their bike.
Do cyclists poop themselves?

Why you should never date a triathlete?
Split personality. You could always go on one of their trips with them, if you fancy spending all day on your own while they are out cycling. However it is particularly dangerous to accompany a triathlete to a race because you run the risk of seeing the “other side” of your paramour.
