Easy spin and pint

Safe to say everyone enjoyed this weeks easy spin.

There were a few worried faces when the ride started on Killynure but it all worked out well in the end.

Even Desi let his hair down (pun intended), enjoying a pint at the "4 Winds" while catching the last rays of the setting Sun and listening to the soothing beeping of Garmin watches going into powersave mode.

BBQ update

The BBQ and bike orienteering will be given a miss this year.

Instead, on the 25th June, be ready to leave the Carryduff layby at the usual time of 18:45. The plan will be a recovery ride (so make sure you do a hard session on Monday) for about an hour. After we will go for a beer, perhaps at the White Horse in Saintfield.

Temple 2 LAP (4th June 2013)

Two notices before the results.

1) Next week we are joining the QUB brick session

Start time: 18:30
Location: Heron Road, off Airport Road West
Map link
Session time: typically 60-90mins
Bring your running shoes.
There should be a group cycling down, leaving Queens PEC at 18:15.
Flat quiet roads and no stop watches!

2) The BBQ evening (Tues 25th June)

There will be an email sent today about the BBQ. Please RSVP as soon as possible.
The BBQ will only run this year if people commit to going upfront. It takes to much effort to come up with a bike orienteering course and put on a BBQ for only a small group. If there is not enough interest we will just go out for an easy roll that evening and have a beer after.

TT Training 2018

2018 News

The TT 2018 series is currently in a planning stage.

What's it all about?

The TT league is a series of training events for triathletes from local Triathlon Ireland affiliated clubs. These are timed sessions, not races, and there are a number of different events that reflect a fun element. The organisers are all volunteers. In June there is a BBQ and in October there is a prize giving evening.

Entry Requirements
Participants must have a current Triathlon Ireland license (either associate or full membership) - no exceptions. Participants must be a member of a Triathlon Ireland club.

Riders must have a working red rear light on their bike and sign a disclaimer before each event.

How much does it cost?

There is no cost however there is a suggested donation, which can made at the start of the season, of £30 to cover running costs.

When and where are the events?

The calendar can be viewed at the bottom of this page. The TTs take place on Tue nights at either 18:45 PM or 19:00 PM sharp from various locations - please see links for maps on this page.

In the event of having to cancel an event a note will be put on this website between 5PM and 6PM on the day of the event. One reason for cancelling would be because of bad weather.

What is the League?
The league is a series of 12 individual TTs with a competitor's best 6 results counting. There will be a separate league for the boys and girls.

Time keeping and marshaling duties?
Marshaling and time keeping duties are shared each week between the competitors.

Legal stuff
Competitors must show their Triathlon Ireland license, sign a waiver form and provide next-of-kin details before being allowed to join in. The TI membership covers public liability for any who are found to be negligent in their duty to other particapants and as such cause personal or property damage. TI also covers for members for 25,000 euro in the event of death or disability following an accidental injury.
