Weekly Update

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News

With Christmas next week and New Years just around the corner too, this will be the last Weekly Update for 2016.  Please take note of the following information:

BOXING DAY RIDE.   North Coast Boxing Day Ride is a bit of fun and to help cure the Christmas Hangover.  We will leave from Sorrento Surf Lifesaving Club at 8am for a short ride up the coast to Burns Beach and return. Free BBQ Bacon and Eggs Rolls and soft drinks provided at SSLC outdoor area.

Please join us, bring your better half and Kids.  Tradition is to ride in your retro kit and ride your old bike (Steel frame etc.) or Mountain Bike, but if you only have a $10K Carbon TT bike that is fine too.

The last coached swimming and running sessions for the year will be on 23rd December.   Coaches will return on the week beginning 9th January. The pool is still booked for the Wednesday night and Friday mornings during the Christmas period, feel free to use these lanes, however, there will not be a coach at the sessions.

From Thursday 12th January, there will be 2 coached interval training groups to choose from.  The 1st will be a beginner/technique group run by Janine Kaye and the 2nd advanced/performance group, run by Mike Bosch.  So no matter where you are in your triathlon training there is a group for you.  Everyone is welcome at either group.  You decide.
