„Bike-run transition step-by-step

1. Place the bike back onto the transition rack by the saddle and remove your shoes.
2. Unbuckle your helmet and put it behind your run shoes.
3. Pull your run shoes onto your feet and tie the laces.
4. Snag extra run fuel, knowing that sports drink, water and nutrition products will all be available at aid stations on the run.
5. Grab your race belt and head for the “Run Out” banner. Snap the belt around your waist on the way out.
