  • Be predictable: ride in a straight line, constant speed, unless indicated differently by the coach.
  • Communicate: use verbal and hand signals to communicate with other team members and with other traffic.
  • Hand signals: use the hand signals for turning and stopping.
  • Verbal warning: along with hand signals, verbally warn warn cyclist being you for anything that the person in front calls out.

Week of September 28 – October 4, 2020

Hello Team,

I hope you all had a good weekend. Several things to go over in this email.

SCION Bags Discount

Central Florida Tri Club is excited to announce a partnership with SCICON Bags for the remainder of the 2020 and 2021 season. SCICON is a well established manufacture of bike flight travel bags that require minimal disassembly of the bike. Their Aerocomfort Triathlon 3.0 bag for example, all you have to do is to remove your wheels to pack your bike in the bag. Our partnership entails a massive 40%  discount that can be used at anytime throughout the year for their entire line up. However, though the end of June Scicon is offing our athletes 50% off only the Aerocomfort bag series or the EvolutionX hardcase, and will also be adding in a free Race Rain Bag, free hygiene bag, free passport wallet, and a free shoe bag (combined $310 value). The Rain Bag can be viewed here, the Hygiene bag here, the passport wallet here, and the shoe bag can be viewed here. In order to receive the extra discount and these free products however, you must email or call Peter directly in the sales department, let him know you are with Florida Central Tri, and he will help in processing your order. Soon after this deal is over, team members will have their own online code to use throughout the rest of the year for 40% off everything. Peter can be reached at peter@sciconbags.com or 760-788-7500 x215

After the month of October is over, I will be creating the general 40% off code for you to use for your team throughout the year. Please let me know and I look forward to working with you this year and next, stay sane in the meantime!
