Cotswold Classic – 220 Tri awards – Chalgrove 10k – Sunday Rides

 

Cotswold Classic – 13th August

A reminder that Liz Merrett is kindly coordinating a group booking for Cotswold Classic half distance tri on the 13th August. This entitles us to a discounted price of £100 (normally £130). If you would like to join the club group booking please follow the link and make your payment accordingly: https://oxfordtri.co.uk/cotswold-classic-2017

For anyone that is looking for their first half distance race, this is worth considering. It is the same course and organiser as the popular June Cotswold 113 event, both events being well organised, relatively local, friendly and well priced. Oh yes – and flat!

Sunday Rides

This Sunday we again have three planned rides going out. We will have Intermediate 1 led by Rob Parle, Intermediate 2 led by Dave Broadribb and Steady led by Tracy.

Steady ride for those new to group riding, gentle pace around 30 miles, intermediate 2 a little faster and longer and Intermediate 1 for the more confident – speeds upto 26kph (16mph) – you know the drill by now!

 Details to be posted by your ride leaders on FB later. Normal meet up and depart from Oxsrad at 9.15.
