Winter Months: October 2019 - March 2020
Tri Club Turbo Session: Tuesday Nights 5:30 - 6:45pm at Staney Hill Hall. Bring your own bike and turbo trainer for a quality hour of focused training. Followed by a run for those who wish.
Tri Club Swimming Sessions: Saturday afternoons 1-2pm in CLickimin Pool. Sessions are open to anyone of any ability, and focus mainly on technique and stroke improvement.
Training Costs as follows:
Tri Club Group Ride: Monday nights 6:00pm.
Now the nights are light enough to get out on the bikes we have replaced our Monday night turbo session with a club ride. Meeting by the Clickimin track at 6pm on Monday evenings we will head out for a spin. Any newbies will be guided through the basics of bike handling/pacing/safety and will gain experience of riding in a group.
Routes and distances will change weekly depending on ability and group size. If we get enough interest we will hopefully get 2 or 3 groups on the go. Roadworthy bike and hemet are essential.
We also join in with the Shetland Wheelers throughout the year. From April to September the club runs a Time Trial series which is a great way to push yourself and see improvements over the course of the season. Times are:
Sun mornings: Meet 9:15am (Tingwall Hall or south end of Tingwall Straights) for your choice of either a 10 mile, 25 mile or 12 mile hilly Time Trial.
Tue nights: Meet 6:15pm at Tingwall Hall for another chance to tacke your prefered course.
Thu nights: Ocassionaly the club will organise APR Nights (Australian Pursuit Race), when the forecast is nice. It takes the format of groups of riders being set off in order of ability with the hope that the faster riders will chase down the slower ones and battle for the finish line. They are lots of fun and great social events.
Info on the club can be found here:
Also, join the Shetland Wheelers Facebook page for all the latest news/results and APR plans.
Through the summer we do running sessions after our Monday Night group ride.
Throughout the whole year we train with the Athletics Club on a Wednesday night, 6:00 - 7:00pm on the Clickimin track. These sessions make a great addition to our training as they are geared towards middle/long distances, with a dedicated coach. All abilities welcome, and the sessions cost £2 each.
You can find more details on the Shetland Road Running facebook page.
HOPE YOU CAN MAKE IT!!
