Bike enthusiasts and specialists will lead and follow each wave to assist Tryathletes and ensure safe riding. Please bring a helmet, bike lights, a water bottle and a bike lock. Wear bright clothing (the brighter the better! Be prepared for "Most Visibile Outfit" award!)

Participants must be 16 or older to TRY, but everyone is welcome to the after party at Riggs Brewery. Riders can roll out from Riggs at anytime or wait for the 10pm and 11pm led rides back to downtown Urbana.

There's a lot of good buzz circulating about the Jamis Bikes Renegade series, and with good reason. A carbon composite fork, 3 bottle mounts, rack and fender mounts, and tubeless ready wheels paired with generous tire clearance make this Renegade Expat adventure-ready right out of the box.

We kitted ours out with Green Guru frame bags: solid bikepacking options made from recycled materials.
