CYCLING

The number of club members who are now cycling has  increased greatly and it would be good for all members to know of what rides are planned. If you are planning a ride, and you would like some company, it would be really great if you can place the information on the forum. Please indicate  distance, route and pace etc so people can decide if they can manage the ride. Make it clear if willing to stop and wait, or if ride is the type where if a rider gets dropped they will need to make own way back.   Each person will be responsible for themselves so important to take a map, so if they need to cut ride short, or get dropped, they can find their way back.

BACK TO THE POOL…….

Yes  September is creeping up on us fast.  It’ll soon be time to put away  the wetsuit for another winter.  Swimming sessions are expected to begin  again on Saturday 6th September and continue right through to the end of April (end of May – 2 lanes) 2015. (WATCH THIS SPACE FOR TIME AND VENUE)

 IMPORTANT – THE TRI  SUB-COMMITTEE ARE LOOKING AT ALTERNATIVE VENUES AS WE BELIEVE THE NUMBERS OF HARRIERS WANTING COACHED SWIM SESSIONS COULD MEAN THAT OUR 4 LANES AT TRINITY ARE NOT ENOUGH.   WE WILL PUT A POST ON THE FORUM ASKING FOR YOUR INTEREST/COMMITMENT TO THE SATURDAY MORNING SWIM SESSIONS.  This will enable us to devise structures/ plans and help us decide on venue.

….Having said all that, if we have an ‘Indian summer’  Box End lake (and other o/w venues) will still be an option through to the end of September.  Check the websites for opening times.
