ED. MTN is encouraging Minnesota's Tri Clubs to send us stuff about their goals and why they are cool. Today, we kick things off with some information about NOW Bike's Triathlon Club.

The NOW Bikes Triathlon Club is now in its 7th year of existence. Our club members reside throughout the Twin Cities and our members’ experience level ranges from first timer to elite athletes. The Club is here to support all levels of triathletes by...
offering training sessions, seminars, club meetings, social activities and have contact with the Triathlon community as a whole. Membership is doubling every year and this season Now Triathlon has added some respected local elite athletes to our already strong roster. Brendon O’Flanagan, Suzie Fox, Diane Hankee, Nicole Heininger (rookie of the year in 2013), Chris Sachs, Sam Janicki and Kyle Serreyn.
The club is headed by Erik Jordahl who works at our new Arden Hills store. Erik is an experienced Triathlete who is a great resource for anyone looking to start triathlons or even experienced triathletes looking to improve their experience.
