TriBike Transport offers a unique service to help ease the logistical headaches of preparing for and traveling to The Nation’s Triathlon. Avoid the high cost, inconvenience and risks of checking your bike with the airlines or shipping it via mass ground carrier to your big race. Simply drop it off, fully assembled, at one of our conveniently located partner bike shops before you leave for your destination and pick it up, ready to ride, before your race, within walking distance of the Transition Area. Your bike is never disassembled or packed in a case. After your race, drop it off at the same location the same evening or the next morning and we’ll get it back to your local shop for you to pick up at your convenience after you get home. http://www.tribiketransport.com/reservations.html
