My second time at Lanzarote was unfortunately not as good as my first one two years ago. My race report is here but in summary: An ok swim, an ok bike and a very painful run (that included a half-hour stop and a bottle of wine in a cafe by the side of the run).
As many people are in Riccione having a great time in the sunshine, Friday’s club meeting will be rescheduled.
NHRC start their evening time trials next week at Ashford Hill. They have an evening club event most weeks from now through to August. Full details of all events are shown on their website http://www.nhrc.co.uk/Club_Events.html
I think that Basingstoke Tri Club affiliated to CTT this year so Tri Club members are eligible to ride any TT. If you are not a member, you will need to be a member of an affiliated club to ride. NHRC operate a “come and try it” option for up to 3 events.
For some reason our web contact form has not been working properly for the last six months or so.
If you have sent us something, we’ve not been deliberately ignoring you!
It’s fixed now so please try again.
Due to the Wales v England rugby international, the powers that be have decided that the next Friday meeting will be put back until the 11th February. See you there.
Hi everyone, just a quick note to say that turbo sessions will be starting again on TUESDAY 19th October. From thereon in, sessions will be every Tuesday up to and including 29th March, the only exception being a two week gap over the Christmas period – see attached program for full details (TURBO10-11)
The Chute Pavilion at Sherborne St John has been booked from 19:00 til 20:30, so please try to arrive promptly in order that we can start the session at 19:15 sharp. If you are unsure of the location, a map can be found here and the post code is RG24 9HX). Changing and shower facilities are available on-site.
As a quick reminder and for those that have not attended turbo before, you will need to bring the following with you:-
– Turbo Trainer or rollers
– Cycling shoes
– Heart rate monitor
– Bike computer (cadence sensor is great if you have one, but not essential)
– Turbo schedule
– A drink
– Towel to catch/mop the sweat from your bike during the session
The attached program is updated with all the sessions, dates etc. Please enter your Minimum/Maximum heart rate on the ‘Index’ page, print the entire workbook and remember to bring it with you every week. If you don’t know your maximum heart rate, use the 220 minus your age rule in the short term (Max HR test is scheduled, 2nd November 🙂 ).
Cost: Pricing remains unchanged from last year with a preferential rate for Basingstoke Tri Squad members, though anyone is welcome.
Members: £15 for all sessions (avg 68p per session!)
Non-members: £25 for all sessions
Per session: £2 (members and non-members)
That’s it for now. I hope to see you there on the 19th!!
