BIKERS: Amy, Brooklyn
RT DISTANCE: 16 miles

AMY'S NOTES: Started at the North Salt Lake Center St. trailhead and pedaled north. The first of 8 legs in the bike portion of the triathlon. Mile 4 brought a flat tire due to a staple, but with the help of a couple of strangers I was back up in a few minutes (thanks Alan). I did learn a few things I did not know before. I have a tube in my tire (as opposed to tubeless), compressed air cartridges are really cool, schraeder valves are old school, it takes a special tool to remove a tire, squishy stretchy pants are a good investment, and if the store you bought them at forgets to remove the anti-theft device don't try to remove it with a hammer.
