The bike skills session scheduled for Sunday 25th January is from 09-00 to 13-00 not as previously advertised. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Long time club member and extremely quick triathlete, Stuart Hope, is selling his 2014 model 56cm Cervelo P3 which has been professionally maintained, very well looked after and always ridden in the dry. Anyone that knows Stuart will tell you that he doesn’t skimp on quality in the pursuit of going fast and so this is one P3 which could even make our webmaster look quick (well that might be stretching things a tad but we’re sure you get the drift). You can find more details by clicking on this link

Included in this week’s news:-

As all members know our 4 events finance the Club’s activities for the year so are an instrumental part of the Club. With this, we need the support of EVERYBODY to help organise them and give up a small amount of their time to volunteer. To help us we are asking if any members are linked to local voluntary organisations such as Cubs, Scouts, Brownies, Explorers, TA, Air Cadets etc. to see whether you can help us get together some voluntary support. If you are or better still know of any local groups that would be willing to help please email Dan Philpott (or contact us through the form on the membership page) as he will be pleased to hear from you!
Watt Bike Sessions – Wednesdays at Indoor Revolution
If you would like to book a place please email Steve Powell (or contact us through the form on the membership page) Start at 8pm – sometimes last longer than an hour depending on session. We need to fill all 15 bikes. If you book a place please make every effort to attend as the Club is having to pay for those who don’t turn up. If you can’t make it please email Steve as there is a waiting list every week.
Velodrome Session – 19th April 10am – 1pm
Sam has been very busy booking another velodrome session for our members as it was so successful last time.
32 spaces available for 1.5 hrs in either the introduction group or the ‘done it before’ group. The cost per rider is £15 plus £10 bike hire and £6 if you wish to hire shoes ( Look Keo cleats are on the bikes so if you have these just bring your own).
This was hugely popular last time so to reserve your place please email Sam (or contact us through the form on the membership page). You will be required to pay your £15 into the club account by the end of February to secure your place. Bike & Shoe hire payable on the day.
Technical Swim Sessions – Fridays at Braintree Pool
Head Coach Pete is continuing with coached swim sessions on Friday nights, 8pm to 9pm and 9pm to 10pm at Braintree Pool. Open to all members. The sessions will cost the normal £3.00 each week. The sessions focus on technique to improve swimming efficiency.

As triathletes we are always fretting about injuries and trying to train just right to avoid them. Some of this is a bit hit and miss however remedial massage therapist Clare Lees is here to help. Clare has an impressive list of qualifications including:
- BTEC Level 5 professional diploma in sports and remedial massage.
- Rock tape (kinesio) Level 2 practitioner.
- Qualied British Cycling Coach and qualified Association British Cycle Coach Level 3.
- Member of the Institute of Sports & Remedial Massage and the Complimentary National Healthcare Regulator.
- DBS Checked.
Clare has raced at a national level and worked at cycling camps in Europe as well as the UK so knows her stuff and at £40 for the firsr consultation and £45 per consultation thereafter is much cheaper than climbing the walls with an injury! You can read more at Claire’s Website.
