10 accounts triathletes should follow on Instagram

We love Instagram – and have recently started doing more with our @biketriexpo account. It’s such a great platform for cycling and triathlon – full of beautiful destinations and motivational quotes. Here is our pick of the 10 accounts we recommend you check out.



Josh Holman is a Team GB Age Group Athlete and his insta is a lovely mix of training shots and inspirational messages.

Headed out for a rip on the TT bike this afternoon and I was absolutely flying! 😃🚴🏼💨 • • The aim of today's session was to think hard about my body position, especially when on the aero bars! There is a lot of time to be saved, especially when racing iron distance so it is vital to take the time to practice and consider what small changes can be made, and also make sure that you are totally comfortable! (112 miles is a long way!) I've got a few more adjustments to make until I am satisfied but I was pleasantly surprised to find out when I got home that I averaged 36kph over 65 kilometres! I felt like I was cruising the whole way round so I know there is a lot more in the tank! Looks like all of these FTP sessions are finally paying off! 😃😏😈 • • Anyway, hope everyone is having a great week so far! Happy #humpday
