Tribike Trans­port

tribike­trans­port. com Don’t want the has­sle of trav­el­ling with your bike to a race? There are op­tions. While they cur­rently have only one part­ner shop in Canada (En­durosport in Toronto), keep this bike trans­port com­pany on your radar as they will soon be ser­vic­ing Mon­treal, Cal­gary and Ed­mon­ton for ma­jor races in North Amer­ica. Start by check­ing the web­site to ver­ify your race is on their event cal­en­dar. Com­plete the on­line reser­va­tion process to iden­tify the part­ner bike shop where you will drop off your bike (less the ped­als) one to two weeks be­fore your event. Your bike will be loaded onto a trans­port truck fully as­sem­bled and ar­rive at the venue a few days be­fore the race. When you ar­rive at your race expo, sim­ply find the com­pany’s tent lo­cated within walk­ing dis­tance of the tran­si­tion area and screw on the ped­als. Af­ter your race (or the next morn­ing), sim­ply drop off your bike at the TriBike Tent for the re­turn trip.
