WEEKLY UPDATE – Merry Christmas!

Written by Janine Kaye on . Posted in News


Only a few sleeps until christmas and we would like to take this opportunity to say MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR to all our amazing members. We hope you have a fabulous festive season surrounded by family and friends,  that you sneak some training in amongst the (possible) over indulgence, and that Santa spoils you all! Thank you for all your support and commitment to our club this year.. we look forward to a bigger and brighter 2015 with you all!

* BOXING DAY RIDE & BBQ: Friday 26th December 7:30am

It is that special day again, when we have to get on the bike to remove some of the extra food and cheer we got into on Xmas day. This annual event will be held at the Sorrento SLSC. We will have a short ride up to the Burns Beach and return back to Sorrento via Resolute and Swanston at a very easy and enjoyable pace. If you have one, why not dust off your precious steely or other vintage bike and bring it along for a ride, it is always great fun to admire and reminisce looking at these great older bikes.

When we get back we have access to the BBQ area at the Surf club and we encourage you to meet up with the rest of your family and have a (BYO everything) BBQ with your triathlon friends. We expect the ride to take around 1 hour and will depart at 7:30AM returning to SSLSC at around 8:30AM.

* YAHAVA VIA WHITEMAN RIDE: Saturday 27th December 6am

This is a new ride and has not yet been done by the club so we are going to test the ride on the day and publish this as a Saturday alternate ride if it is suitable. This test ride is open to all and will depart from Kingsley Dome at 6AM. This will be an easy paced 54km ride with coffee stop.


There will be some changes to the official training session schedule over the christmas/new year period as a result of public holidays and the festive season.. These will be updated in the calendar but for your reference I have included the dates below:

– Thursday night Run Training: training will not be on the Christmas Day  or New years Day but will continue on all other Thursdays.

– Swimming Sessions: there will be no official training sessions available on Wednesday 24th, Friday 26th and Wednesday 31st December.

The 25m indoor session with Kristy will not be available on Wednesday 7th January but the outdoor pool session will continue as usual.

Clare’s last session with us is on Friday 2nd January, at 10.30am and we would love to see lots of members come down for that one to wish her farewell!

– Cycle sessions: Thursday rides will not be held on Christmas day or New Years Day. Boxing Day and Saturday 27th as above.
