Friends Who Tri

Friends Who Tri Bike Bottle


Friends Who Tri


I grew up as a competitive swimmer and always knew in the back of my mind I wanted to participate in a triathlon. But I never felt comfortable combining long distance swimming with running and cycling. This all changed when I competed in my very first olympic distance triathlon on September 2017 at the Santa Cruz Tri.

I couldn’t have overcome this without the support of my triathlete friends from our UCLA+UCSF+Friends Triathalon group which was eventually named “Friends Who Tri”. To share my appreciation for the encouragement and incredible camaraderie, I designed custom bike bottles for our teams to use during our rides.
