Club Info: The Gear West Triathlon club consists of recovering coach potatoes, first time triathletes, weekend warriors, and hardened tri veterans looking to win their age group, complete their first Ironman® or qualify for Kona.
Just some of the GW Tri Club offerings include...
Tri Club Tri-Grants:
The grant program is intended to help encourage meeting locations different from those just around the shop, giving club members alternatives to routes closer to their work and homes.
Several clinics are offered throughout the year covering a variety of topics including training, bike maintenance, nutrition and more. All clinics are taught by elite athletes from around the Midwest, certified coaches, and other experts in their field.
Get Caught in Red:
Get Caught in Red is an incentive program for wearing Gear West Bike and Triathlon clothing at select races throughout the season. Get caught wearing the clothing and you'll be rewarded with some great schwag from Gear West Bike and Tri. Members from the staff and GWB & Tri Test Team will be looking out for race participants who are racing in GW Gear and hand out valuable prizes before and after many races, so be sure to sport your colors!

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
