One of my life to-dos is to bike or run in all 50 states, but I may have to add one more to the list: Run or bike internationally every couple years (and then vacation after!). The World Triathlon in London seems like a good place to start, right?! (To clarify, no, I’m not racing!)
Check out the below infographic for some pretty neat facts about the race, which is this weekend, Saturday, May 31! I’m particularly fascinated by a few of the data points:
- Let’s get more women in the sport. Because it’s a really fun, lifelong sport!
- Average value of each bike at the race = about $2,600.
- Total value of all the bikes at the race = $22 million(!).
That’s a LOT of money! And, if you’re anything like me, your bike is your most prized possession, so make sure you insure it, just in case :)
