Oxford Tri Sprint Triathlon - Swim Safety Officer Volunteering - Sunday Rides


Oxford Tri Sprint Triathlon

Our own sprint triathlon is now only a couple of months away, 27th August at Radley College. Places are starting to fill so sign up soon to secure your place -

We will also need volunteers to help marshal and set up with points, all volunteers will receive bonus points for the club championships


Swim Safety Officer Volunteering

Another reminder that our open water swim sessions can only go ahead with volunteer Swim Safety Officers and we need 2 of these per session. If everyone who swims regularly volunteers twice in the season, and those who swim occasionally volunteers once, then we will have enough. Please see the calendar for volunteer signup. If you are a regular swimmer at the lake and haven’t yet volunteered please sign up.


Sunday Rides

We have two planned rides going out this weekend:


Intermediate-Fast ride led by Alex Gandon will be a "lightly undulating" run out to the Chilterns, with a couple of big bumps in the middle, with an average speed 26/27 kph or around 16mph.


Fast ride led by Gope Walker will be a flattish ride heading west, with an average speed of 30km/18.5mph +


If you do fancy something steadier don’t let this put you off riding, feel free to share a route on Facebook and see if anyone wants to join you.


As usual rides leave Oxsrad at 9.15. The forecast is hot so make sure you have plenty of fluid and food for the rides.
