“Going aero” in terms of cycling can also be thought of as “free speed”. In other words, the more aerodynamic you are on the bike, the more efficient you will be, enabling you to go faster without increasing your effort. Who wouldn’t want to go faster without increasing their work? It sounds great and certainly can be, but for the recreational cyclist or triathlete, a minute time savings on your bike split can cost a small fortune! Of course, the greater the distance the bike segment (i.e. Sprint Tri vs. Ironman Distance), the bigger the time savings will be.
