No, February bay waters are fine for just bathers, tri-suits and similar.
Any bike will do so long as in good working order / safe. Those at the front of the field will be on road bikes, which there will be many mountain bikes and who knows, even a basket on the front of one or two. A helmet that fits your head and working straps is required to participate in the bike leg.
‘Full Relay’ Team Event – Yes, as within a team you are going one after the other, bikes can be shared where required.
‘Fun Relay’ Team Event – No, Bikes are unable to be shared between teams as cyclists will need to go out on course at similar times.
Generally, participants are in tri-suits, but really anything practical is permitted. Torso must be covered on the bike and run for any male who swims in just trunks.
Elwood Surf Life Saving Club have board paddlers in the water to grab onto for those who need a quick rest while on the 400m swim. A basic level of swimming competence is required. Participants are welcome to assess the water conditions on the day and choose to bypass the swim and start their event from the swim finish. They will need to notify staff at the swim.

There is the opportunity for a Team Member to be part of 2 ‘Full Relay’ Teams – in this instance we recommend you list them as team member 1 on Team A, and Team Member 3 on Team B to enable them to complete both roles.
The alternative is for additional individual(s) to register via this link HERE for the individual event, where they will post an individual time and not be part of any team ($130 per person). This is used for specifically this instance of having odd numbers to neatly fit onto teams. They will not display in your group summary as part of the team event.
‘Full Relay’ Team Event – 3 Team members complete a full Triathlon each, one after the other, handing over an ankle timing band between members in the ‘Team Transition’ Area.
‘Fun Relay’ Team Event – In this event, 2 or 3 members share the legs of one Triathlon. For example, I do the swim, and then hand over the ankle timing band to my teammate who does the ride, then hand over again to last teammate who does the run. All changeovers are made at the bike rack for this event.
