On Wednesday, March 21 the High Sierra Triathlon Club held its season kickoff at The Bistro at Snowcreek. Brian Ellison of Brian’s Bicycles and Cross-Country Skis, the Club’s unofficial bike mechanic according to Club President Sally Gaines, spoke to the group about advances in bike technology, tri bikes versus road bikes, and do-it yourself maintenance.
The biggest things to keep an eye on, according to Ellison are tire pressure and lubrication.
This year’s June Lake Triathlon will be held July 7, but High Sierra Triathlon Club members also partake in many other events throughout the year. To learn more or join the club visit www.highsierratri.org.
