Hi everyone!

We just wanted to give you a heads-up about the list of links we are adding to Carolina Triathlon’s website:

1. When you access the home page now, you will find two blocks at the top of the page. One is a link to group runs and the other is a link to group rides. Click he one you want (based on… what type of group workout you are interested in), and you will be redirected to a page with allof the relevant information, schedules and links.

2. The left-hand margin now has a series of links that will direct you to a number of resources, from local cycling and triathlon coaches, to athletes’ personal websites, etc. We will start adding links to local races, massage therapists and other cool resources in the coming weeks.

3. Our main page now also features two graphics displaying current weather conditions. The graphics are hyperlinked to and, so you can a detailed day-by-day or hour-by-hour analysis of upcoming weather. (Great if you’re wondering what to wear on your next outdoor workout.)

The idea is to give you guys immediate access to information you will be able to put to good use, without making you jump through hoops. Our goal is to make the Carolina Triathlon your online and offline hub for local racing, taining and other swimming, cycling, running and triathlon-related thingamajigs.

Fact #1: Saturday mornings are great.

Fact #2: It’s 2006. You can either tape or Tivo Saturday morning cartoons now, so getting a ride in is easy, and guilt-free.

Fact #3: The Winter Bike League rides started last Saturday. The schedule for December includes two more rides (Dec. 9 and Dec. 16). The skinny on these rides:

  • Distance: +- 65 miles of rolling terrain.
  • Avg. Pace: 18mph.
  • Participation: +- 100 riders.
  • Start time: 10:10am
  • Start Location: Carolina Triathlon, 633 S. Main Street (Downtown Greenville)
  • End location: Same as start.
  • Support: Sag van provided.

Carolina Triathlon opens at 10:00 am, so you’ll have a few minutes to buy energy gels and bars, gloves, arm warmers, vests, skullcaps, and whatever else you might have left at home or not bought yet.

When you get back from your ride, the Bistro at Carolina Triathlon can hook you up with a recovery drink, Endurox smoothie, specialty coffee drink, etc. The smoothies are pretty incredible (especially the PB&J and the Skull Crusher) so give them a try.

If you need to ride longer than 65 miles, come warm up with us at 8:00am. We ride from the store to Paris Mountain, do a little up-and-over, and ride back for an even 20-22 miles. The 8:00am ride can serve either as a warm-up or as a shorter ride if you aren’t up for 65 miles of riding this time of year.
