January 22, 2010, Newsletter Issue #15: Obeying Traffic Laws

Tip of the Week

During the cycling leg of a triathlon, participants should follow all traffic laws while on the bike course. This means cyclists should ride on the far right hand side of the road and should never cross the yellow line in the middle of on the road. Any violation of this rule results in disqualification or time penalty as determined by the race official. Also, be particularly careful near intersections and while making turns on the course. Most races are well organized with police and/or volunteers controlling vehicular traffic by monitoring dangerous corners and intersections. Do not take this for granted. Always look both ways when coming to an intersection, and if there is no traffic control come to a complete stop at traffic lights or stop signs. It only takes one mistake to end your triathlon career, so please be careful out there.
