I've been running for years, but over the last six months I've really stepped up my training and I've realised that I'm capable of pushing myself much further. Soooo, I decided to take on a triathlon! I've done some swimming and cycling on and off over the last few years, but I don't currently have a bicycle of any sort, and I've never done OW swimming, so I don't have wetsuit or similar. My questions are:
What are the absolute bare essentials for a sprint tri?
And how should I tackle the bike question?
I'm off to uni in a few months and I need a bike for general getting about, would a cheap used road bike cover my requirements, or do I need two separate bikes?
