  • Drinking while riding – picking things up while riding, taking a bottle and replacing it etc.

Please bring your road bike (not a TT bike) and a helmet. We will be working on group cycling so British Triathlon require traditional drop bars (rather than extended aerobars) for use in group riding situations.

Please also bring a pair of trainers (if possible) in case the session involves transition skills.
