Triathlon Fundamentals Clinic: Cycling + Transition Practice

This TriLaVie Cycling Clinic is appropriate for any woman who wants a great overview of cycling mechanics as a beginner rider or as a refresher for more experienced riders.  Our focus is road riding with an emphasis on training for a triathlon.

Bike Clinic Includes:

  • lecture with show-and-tell!
  • skill-building drills on the bike - you'll ride!
  • riding on the nearby roads - low traffic!
  • transition overview: run-bike-run with practice! (short runs... promise!)
  • you'll get a fantastic morning of experience to become a safer, stronger, faster rider.


Transition is the 4th sport of triathlon!  This clinic addresses the importance of transitioning from the run-to-bike-to-run with race-style practice.  You'll set up your bike on official triathlon transition racks and learn great strategies for setting up your equipment for efficient transition.  Practice makes perfect and perfect practice makes perfect transitions.  (or something like that....!)

Martha Szufnarowski
TriLaVie & Swim Velocity Founder and Head Coach

I fell in love with triathlon in 2001 when I moved to California from the northeast.  The variety of swim-bike-run training works into a healthy lifestyle and I choose a few races each year to stay motivated and feel young. Though I was inspired by watching the Hawaii Ironman growing up, I never imagined I’d be a triathlete, let alone an Ironman myself! Triathlon enriches my life so much, I want to find ways to share that well-being with others. As a life-long educator, the transition to coaching feels natural for me.  I am passionate about sharing the challenge of triathlon with women of all athletic abilities.  My favorite part of coaching is witnessing the overwhelming joy felt by a new triathlete crossing the finish line for the first time.  There is nothing like it. Contact Martha 949-374-2096
