I would like to potential use this for triathlon training. Can this watch give me a pace and distance when cycling? I'm assuming that because it is governed by satellite that it can. I just want to make sure.

Yes, it does give pace and distance while running so I'm sure it would be able to do the same while cycling

the website is running orientated so if you were using the coach or challenges facilities it would not be ideal, that said if you avoid these features it will work brilliantly for you.
I got the polar wearlink + heartbeat monitor too and its great with the watch although you need to make sure you buy the version with the Nike symbol to get it to work

I just went for a 22 mile ride, the watch kept pace the whole way, but when I try to upload and view it online, NOTHING, ZIP, ZERO! What the heck? If the watch can not be used for cycling, thats half the reason I bought it.
@Dazzler72 - Were you able to recover your ride data?

Here is a response I got back from Nike about this:
It is great to see that you are interested in tracking your cycling with the Nike+ SportWatch GPS. Your Nike+ SportWatch GPS can be used in activities other than running.
However, there are some limits:
Once the information is uploaded to nikeplus.com, the data from that workout will be represented as a RUN.
If cycling (or other mechanical means) and the speed of the workout is faster than a human can run (example: faster than 3:30 per mile or 2:10 per kilometer), then the workout is disqualified and rejected by the website.
John, if you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to contact me back. Thank you for your time and continued support of Nike+.
Have a great day,
