Im buying some road tyres for my specialized hard tail before i take on the london to southend bike ride.but is a tri suit compulsery for a triathlon?

no - it just makes life easier as you can swim, bike and run in the same kit.  I did my 1st tri in a pair of lycra running shorts for the swim (no wetsuit despite a sea swim), and pulled on a vest in transition for the bike/run.

My event was an indoor swim so I just bought some try shorts and pulled on a vest type base layer that I got from Aldi's on to complete the run and bike sections.

The one I did had a lot of beginners, and some of the girls were running into the changing rooms after getting out of the pool, taking their swimsuits off and putting running stuff on before running to the bikes!
