Welcome to this weeks newsletter 


The season is well and truly underway! Well done to everyone competing and supporting this weekend at Bicester. With this in mind, we will be spending our Tuesday evening sessions at Dalton Barracks throughput Spring. See below for more information.

The Committee



Dalton Barracks

Spring has sprung and the new seasons sessions are upon us. We shall shortly be meeting at Dalton Barracks again – hurrah I hear you all cry.


Alongside the Run/Bike/Run sessions we will be delivering beginners/refresher sessions. Here’s a sneak preview of what we (The Coaches) have planned for you. 


Tues 4 Apr – Puncture repair session + run/bike/run 

Please bring your bike, a couple of spare tubes, a method of inflation & dress appropriately, it can be windy at Dalton.


Tues 18 Apr – Beginner Skills + run/bike/run, skills will be decided on prior to the session and based on what you ask for – what would you like? Let us know.


Tues 2 May – Beginners Skills + run/bike/run – as above


Tues 16 May – Beginners Skills + run/bike/run – as above 


We will be looking for members to volunteer to assist the coaches on these nights. To allow the coaches to give 100% to the skills we would love it (luvin it, Luvin it, luvin it) if a delightful member would keep an eye on the rascals run/bike/running. Make sure everyone is still upright, cheer and encourage and maybe operate a stopwatch. If you would be happy to volunteer please let one of the coaches know. 


Thanks The Coaches




Monday - 19.00 - Run Social - Tilsley Park, meet at reception.


*****new shorter routes are available for those people who want to run for less than 5km, so if you're wanting to get back into running after a break, come along!**

Whilst this is not a coached session, it will help develop your running endurance - we take a 10km (ish) route around Abingdon (shorter routes are available) and run in ability groups.  No-one will be left behind and there is ALWAYS someone to run with.  A great way to keep your running up AND have a mini social at the same time.  Win win.
