Harbour estate duathlon - 20th Aug 2019

Multi-skills, running and biking and breathing, 2 lap run going with Earth spin, cycle to the shop, roundabout and back, one final run lap and enjoy the Sam Thompson chute.

Newcomer Ciara put in a strong effort and showed great potential; just a pity it's toward the end of the season!

Peter McG wasted several seconds forgetting to take his helmet off at the start of the run and missed out on an classic win.

Desi also did very well.

What would a blog be if it were not for quote.

"Don't the best of them bleed it out
While the rest of them peter out?
Truth or consequence, say it aloud
Use that evidence, race it around"

TT Training 2019

2019 Rules

You must have a TI licence (a training licence is sufficient), be a member of a triathlon club and have working front AND rear lights on your bike. Cycling helmets are also mandatory. For events marked (ATH) - this means it is an athletes TT, meaning that no TT equipment should be used, such as TT bikes, TT bars, aero helmets etc. You can of course turn up with TT equipment, however, you should be prepared for general teasing and mickey taking as the penalty for doing so!

As we are riding on public roads, the rules of the roads apply. The committee have notified the PSNI of our plans for the season; being seen and riding safely are of paramount importance - these events are very enjoyable and will improve your time trialling, but we should all stay safe when participating in them and we all have a responsibility to ensure that this happens.
