Finally we get to write about Noosa. Even though it was a month ago.
Pretty amazing really. 7000 competitors in the Tri and something like 10-11000 over the weekend. Not only is Noosa a great location for a triathlon but the event is really well organised. Although there are some stories of people having to pull out and not being able to get refund’s overall the feedback from people competing was very positive and most of them would do it again.
For those who don’t know what 7000 bikes all in a row look like here are a few thousand. Imagine 4 times this.
TriBikeTransfer did its first transfer from Melbourne to Noosa this year and it went really well. A big thank you to Bike FO and CBD cycles as drop off places and we are looking forward to future events around Australia.
In total 65 bikes from Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney, 2 trucks and a great time. Not much spare time for the swimming we were looking forward to, and when we did get there it was late Sun arvo and the wind had come up so not all that good for doing laps in front of the beach but still nice to get into the water.
While we love transporting bikes, it was nice to see the last one dropped off and good to have an empty truck.
Looking forward to next years event though. Make sure you get in early if you want to compete. Here is the webpage if you want to enter and remember it gets very busy at the airport and we are more than happy to take the pain of the bike transfer away for you.
