What sort of bike can I use?

Under Triathlon Ireland and event rules, the wearing of helmets is mandatory for the bike section. Please remember to bring a helmet with you, as failure to wear one will result in your dismissal / disqualification from the race.

  1. Portlaoise Try-athlon is a first-timer friendly race. You do not need any special bike to compete, though we insist on the bike you use being road-worthy (a pre-race inspeciton of bikes at transition will take place). Mountain bike, touring bike, racing bike, commuting bike are all permissable as long as they are found to be road-worthy.
