Refresher – Equipment Rules and Guidelines

REVIEW the bike rules below BEFORE the race:

A majority of our participants are not affected by these guidelines however, the rules below are enforced for safety reasons only and have nothing to do with performance advantages.

Footwear while riding must have a closed toe box and enclosed heel. No sandals or flip flops.

Clipless pedals are permitted at any age, with the following conditions:

Age group 12-13 and under, the cleat must be recessed into the cycling shoe, such that the sole of the shoe, not the cleat, makes full contact with the ground. The athlete must be able to clip into both sides of the pedal.

For age group 14-15 all clipless pedal systems are permitted.

Cage pedals are NOT permitted at any age.

Aerobars are permitted for the 14-15 age group only and they must not extend more than 15cm beyond the front wheel axle. They must not be longer than the brake levers foremost line and must have a solid bridge.

Torsos must be covered for the bike and run portion of the race. This rule is for both girls and boys. The athlete will be asked to return to transition to put on a shirt. Sleeveless shirts, tri suits and one piece bathing suits are permitted.

If you are unsure about your athlete’s equipment please contact us in advance of the race. If you are a coached athlete or a member of club/team your coaches should be aware of these guidelines.

**UPDATE** TRi KiDS Niagara

Ridley College has recently informed us that they are no longer permitted to privately rent the campus pool. This directive came to them from the Niagara Region Health Department with very little advance notice. Our search for an alternate venue in the Niagara region was not successful as we were unable to find a venue that meets our requirements for a safe and positive TRi KiDS experience. Although there are suitable sites the challenge is finding an available date on or close to August 21st. It goes without saying that we are very disappointed the pool is not available to us.

TRi KiDS Niagara 2016 will now be a Duathlon: Run, Bike, Run. After a very successful Duathlon in Burlington this past weekend we are confident that the energy and excitement will carry over to Niagara.
All registered athletes in TRi KiDS Niagara were sent a notice by email on Tuesday (yesterday).  Read the full post here.
We are no longer accepting requests for refunds – this deadline has passed.  The transfer policy set out for all races – see the registration page – is still in effect for TRi KiDS Niagara.

Next Stop – TRi KiDS Edmonton!

Online registration is now closed for next weekend’s race in Edmonton.  All registered athletes will receive their Race Weekend Guide the evening of Monday, June 20.  Please look out for it in your inbox; the email used upon registration.

We accept walk up registrations, space permitting, on Saturday only (no race day) during race kit pick up.  Details for race kit pick up will be posted on the Guide.
