While it can be hard to gain time on the swim, the bike is where most people can make the fastest improvements. TriLakes Triathlon Club organises regular spinning sessions and spin outs from various locations and is very active in the local cycling community.
Whether you are a complete novice with a high nelly or have the latest top of the range carbon set up you are welcome to train with us. We have athletes of all abilities within the club and we all support each other. On Sunday mornings there is a beginners cycle, followed by an intermediate cycle of approximately 50km. The pace is easy and there plenty of groups to hang in with and chat to.
Click here to see some of the club's standard routes mapped out. Some or all of these routes will have club members training on them on any typical weekend!
During the cycling season we participate in all of the main cycle events including the Croi Cycle in April and the An Post Cycle Series treating it as a day out for the club. We leave the racing for the triathlon season!
Often called the fourth discipline transition in triathlon races depends hugely on an athletes ability to get onto and off the bike with the least amount of hassle. The club will be holding transition session running up to and during the triathlon season so that when you get to your race that you have one less thing to worry about.
Having the right bike fit though is really important if you want to get the most out of you training spins and competitive races. Spending too much time on a bike that is either too big or too small with the wrong geometry will cause injury and you simply won’t get the results you are looking for. Our bike co-ordinator, Andrew O’Shaughnessy, can point you in the right direction here and give you loads of advice on how to reach your goals.
