North Coast Tri Club Weekly Update

Written by Zena Coffey on . Posted in News

A very wet Winter has made outdoor cycling a challenge, so now Spring has sprung it’s time to dust off the spokes and join in the fun! Tour de Lancelin plans are in full swing, mark it in the diaries for the 6th of October. The itinerary will be up shortly. The Club under the guidance of David Martin will be tailoring the Saturday long rides to build for the event. So if the distance is scaring you, make sure you get down to some of the weekend rides planned. The calendar has been updated.

There has been a ‘call out’ on the FaceBook page for juniors 6-11, who may be interested in the TryStars program. A great family focused program that coincides with The Club’s Aquathlon Series. Please help get the word out to family and friends. Click here for more details. In other Junior news, The Club is looking for volunteers to help with the Whitfords Bunnings “Sausage Sizzle” on the 24th of September. This is a fundraising event and any help would be much appreciated, please contact Kim Whitlock Chandler at juniors@northcoasttriclub.org.au

The WIT program (Women in Triathlon), will be commencing on the 13th of October. This is an introductory course for women, into the amazing world of triathlon. Once again we encourage members to get the word out. I’m sure the ladies from previous WIT groups will testify how inclusive and knowledgeable the program is. For more information click here.

The Board will be meeting this week to finalise dates on the up coming NCTC season calendar and put in motion a few items. Keep your eyes peeled for FaceBook updates in the coming week.

On a side note, The Club’s Instagram page is in full swing. Check it out @northcoasttriclub and don’t forget to tag your training pics #northcoasttriclub
