CLUB TRAINING

We have a mixture of coached and non-coached training sessions which run throughout the year.  If you’re new to the club then please come along to the Tuesday evening coached swim session first of all (or contact us if you’d prefer to attend one of the other sessions)

We work closely with the Wye Valley Runners, Hereford Couriers, the GB Duathlon Manager Dave Newport, the Hereford and District Wheelers and many other local clubs and groups. Please ask our coaches for more details.

We also organise regular running, cycling and transition skills sessions throughout the year.

SUNDAY

Group Bike Ride - 0830 prompt leaving Hereford Leisure Pool car park

Group Bike Rides – for all abilities. This is a group session which is led but not coached.  We have two or three groups of riders which are organised according to distance and ability.  In the autumn and winter we stop midway for a coffee and cake, in the spring and summer we have a drink and cake stop at the end of the ride. Please be prompt and arrive for the briefing at 0825. We ask that you can cycle at least 20 miles and that you are a club member (guests are welcome for occasional rides - please contact us in advance)  All members are also advised to take out individual insurance. 

 

We also run numerous additional sessions throughout the year covering track running, cross country running, transitions, nutrition and bike maintenance.   We also organise bike leader courses for our members to give us more confidence and awareness when cycling as a group.
