Pre-race recommendations to consider
April is a month more than favorable for the practice of any sport on the island: the sea temperature, although still a little cold, already allows to take the first dips of the year. Sunny days increase and hours of sunshine lengthen. Although there are some rainy days, they are not usually very intense. Check the weather a few days before to avoid any surprises.
Don't forget to maintain your bike well throughout your training for the triathlon, and be sure to get a good tune-up at a Cycling Center if you're staying at a cycling accommodation.
