Cycle

Our Saturday morning cycling sessions run all year round and are primarily designed to build endurance.

 

Led rather than coached, these sessions take in rides around Cheshire and the Peak District and are organised in two groups to allow you to choose the level of intensity that suits you best.

 

The Group One session covers 20 to 30 miles at an average speed of 15mph and takes around two to two and a half hours. The more testing Group Two session covers 50 to 60 miles at an average speed of 20mph and takes around four hours.

 

To maintain motivation, a stop for coffee and cake is built into every session!

 

Once a month in summer we run timed training sessions including a 10 mile timed cycle ride.

 

During the winter, you can join our coached spin sessions on Monday and Tuesday evenings – great for building or maintaining general fitness in the off season.

 

Important note – while we don’t necessarily expect you to front up on a Cervelo P5, we do insist on a roadworthy road bike. And yes, that’s a road bike – arrive on a mountain bike and you could find yourself issued with the naughty helmet and deprived of all cake rights!

Example Cycle Sessions

 

We typically have 3 or 4 spin / cycles sessions a week – for latest timetable members should refer to the Weekly Update or our Facebook Members Forum. Non members are welcome to join a trial session, please email info@knutsfordtriclub.co.uk.

About KTC Cycling

What training sessions do you do?

The club is always looking to develop new sessions and on the hunt to members to Champion or lead them. Currently we have two planned weekly rides.

On a Tuesday evening, light dependant, we get out for a short sharp blast around the local Cheshire Countryside. It’s always evolving and is aimed at catering for all levels. And it’s sometimes combined into a Brick Session (a bike ride, then a run).

The other planned session is on a Saturday morning. We tend to meet at 8.30am at the Shell Garage in Knutsford for a longer ride. Each week we aim to plan and communicate the route and duration, with some weeks planned to be harder, longer sessions, others hill focussed, and some for all. We also, over the summer, tend to have a second group that ride over to Salford Quays to add in an open water swim.

 

What standard do I need to be?

As a club we are very much about all ages, abilities and levels. So we try to make as many sessions as possible suitable for all abilities. If you’re not sure if you’ll cope, just talk to one of the Committee members or the session Champion.

North West Region

Hi Knutsford Tri Club Members

We are looking for a potential volunteer guide to assist a partially sighted young Paratriathlete who is a member of the Northern Paratri Academy and lives near Macclesfield.

The main part of the role will be to learn how to pilot a tandem and be available to attend Academy Days on 7th January and 11th March near Edge Hill University, Ormskirk as well as being available to ride roughly every other week initially. This will lead into competing at the British Paraduathlon Championships at Bedford Autodrome on 25th March.

Looking further ahead there will be Paratriathlon events as listed on the website here:
www.britishtriathlon.org/…/paratria…/national-events

Guides will need to be male aged 17-50 ish and as a very rough indication be able to swim 200m in under 3 minutes be a competent cyclist (tandem experience not essential) and be comfortable running between 20-25 minutes for 5km.

The Paraduathlon distances are 5km run 20km bike 2.5km run.

The usual Paratriathlon distances are 750m swim 20km bike and 5km run.

This is a purely voluntary role, although there may be some travelling expenses available by agreement. In the medium to long term it may lead onto further opportunities for the right person.

Please send me an email to:

northwestacademy@britishtriathlon.org and I will reply asap.

Thank you
Mike Myers
TENW Regional Academy Lead
