Group 1 : Those new to running or of a slower preseason – Linslade Wood Hills
Group 2 : Intermediates – not slow but not too fast either – Mentmore Road Park
Group 3 : Faster than the intermediates but not quite as fast as those in Group 4 – Fartlek
Group 4 : The fast guys & gals – Tiddenfoot Lake Intervals
Please ensure you bring plenty of drink to training sessions – this will minimise the risk of cramp in the pool
Our Sunday group rides have now entered the Base Phase – don’t be scared, it’s good fun really!
Three groups to cater for all abilities meeting at Tiddenfoot for a 8.30am start.
Long group – Half Ironman/Ironman target races
Short fast group – Sprint/Olympic target races
Short not-so-fast group – Sprint/Olympic target races
Rides starting late November and are initially nice and gentle, increasing in time and effort as the winter months progress. Full details will be emailed out to members during the week prior to all rides.
Remember to wear suitable clothing and bring appropriate nutrition. Your bike must be roadworthy and you must always wear a helmet (no helmet, no ride). In the winter months it is especially important to wear fluorescent clothing and have lights fitted to your bike.
Almost six years since I joined the club to work on my swimming so I could tackle a Half distance, moving to Cornwall means it’s time to say goodbye. I’ve loved my time with the club and got to know many more folk in that time than in my previous 13 years in the town. In my work I help sports National Governing Bodies increase participation and LBTri ticks all the boxes of what a recreational sports club should be: welcoming, inclusive and focused on making sport accessible and enjoyable for everyone. Thanks to you all for your company and encouragement over the years and especially the coaches who make it happen!Mark Sweeney
LB Tri is a very welcoming club who cater for all abilities. They have helped me achieve my original goals and a lot more since.Michael Banks
About 4 years ago I was overtaken whilst riding my bike up a hill in Leighton. By a runner!. I saw the black and green and asked him what the club was – and he suggested I come along. He was really welcoming and even though I could barely swim (or cycle, clearly!) I gave it a go. Six triathlons and numerous other challenges later I’m still a member. Still enjoying it. So come on in – the water’s lovely!David Allen
Fantastic, friendly club which caters for all levels of triathletes. Regular coached swim, bike, run sessions, as well as strength & conditioning, yoga, and plenty more stuff besides. What’s not to like?Colin Bradley
