Winter Club Runs

Club runners are reminded that mudguards are recommended on club runs until the clocks change on Sunday 31 March 2019.

Riders without full length mudguards may be asked to ride at the back.

As a club mate once remarked "those with mudguards are sensible; those who also have flaps are considerate". Get yours from RAW Mudflap

And a reminder after each ride to check your tyres for embedded flints before they cause a problem.

2019 Training Camp

Each year I organise a training camp in Mallorca for members of the Cambridge Triathlon Club and the Cambridge Cycling Club.

Next year (2019) the dates of the camp are 30th March until 7th April
The idea is that going on a training camp with the people that you train with regularly ensures that the training is great on the camp, and that you know at least some of the people there.  Commercial training camps are a complete lottery in both of these respects.

The camp is cycling focused.  This maximises the endurance training benefit and makes the best of the fantastic riding available in Mallorca.  There's an indoor pool close to the hotel, however, and the sea of course,  so it's easy for triathletes to keep their swimming ticking over; and there are plenty of places to run, including a long sea-front promenade.

We normally have around 40-50 people which means four groups on the road.  The groups ride in the same area each day and usually meet up at lunchtime.  The camp is structured with mix of riding:  length, terrain, speed...

Accommodation is 3* half board.  This year we'll be staying in a different hotel from normal (due to renovation work) but the cost of the trip is the same as last year - from £450 pp for two people in a twin room to £600 for a single room. 

The Clubs make a contribution to the camp which means that we can provide airport transfers in Mallorca and have a backup driver should anyone need rescuing.
