If anyone knows of someone who has a road bike gathering dust in their garage that they might see themselves loaning to the club for new riders, please do put them in touch with me. Already the club has three bikes, a wetsuit and numerous smaller items that have been donated and are being put to good use – but there’s always demand!

Our training and event calendar can be found at: http://trisport.mtaspiring.edutronic.net/training-calendar/ – and you can merge it with your own device if you like

Our club is all about participation, and alongside the excellent commitment of the student athletes, we welcome family members and members of the community to join us in all of our training sessions. They’re designed to accommodate all levels and abilities and are a lot of fun. If you have it in mind that you’d like to join any of our regular sessions, simply let me know and we’ll make sure you have all the information you need.
