With a long running cycling club, 2021 saw the establishment of the Triathlon club, and in 2022 we officially become one! The club welcomes athletes of all abilities and backgrounds, whether you’re a novice or experienced in road, mountain biking, track, triathlon or anything inbetween, we’re the club for you.
With a large BUCS calendar including a hill climb, track, downhill, 3-up and solo time trials, road race championships for the cyclists, and duathlon, biathlon, sprint and standard triathlons for the triathletes, we have a busy year ahead. We encourage as many members to give these events a go as possible, with full support from the committee and other members
We also regularly attend British Cycling and British Triathlon events local to Liverpool, with many members giving different races a go for their first time with us: we are all about participation.
We offer a wide variety of training sessions throughout the week to help our members perform to their best ability. We wouldn’t be a cycling club without many a café ride, but we don’t stop there. Our spin classes are a social training session which take place in the sports and fitness centre. Multiple Run and Swim sessions are also held each week alongside our attendance to parkrun on Saturdays, these sessions are a great way to build fitness for triathlon competitions. We are very lucky to have many links with local clubs which enables us to support our athletes development further.
As part of the Athletics Union we attend monthly AU nights. Alongside this we regularly hold our own socials which are a great opportunity to make friends and bring the club closer together.
We currently have trips planned to Lanzarote and Wales for the coming year, with many other day trips to the likes of the Lake and Peak Districts in the works.
