BIKE

In triathlons you do not need a fancy bike to compete.  Any bike that is safe and has working brakes will do. You will need to have a well-fitting helmet. As safety is our first priority. 

We can teach you how to ride safely on the road and in groups so you can race fast but safe.

RTC offers a variety of sessions for juniors and adults that include speed work and long social rides. We also link in with other cycle groups for some sessions to help give you more options in your week to train.
