Camp and trips
Every year the club arranges a number of awesome trips. Here are some of our upcoming ones, as well as a few regulars on our calendar.
To kick off the triathlon season, each year a big group of us head down south for a week of training in the sun. Previous years have been spent at Lanzarote’s La Santa, Viva Blue in Mallorca, Oxygen in Rimini, Italy and Girona, Spain. You can expect a week packed full of sea swims, mountain cycling, beach runs, and a bit of swim analysis. It’s not all training though. Lounging by the pool, spending unknown hours in the spa, packing all those lost calories in at the champion-esque buffet, and hitting the pub are all on the menu as well.
For a couple of weekends each year, a few dozen of us head out somewhere like the Chilterns or Surrey for a weekend of stunning countryside cycling. We grab a van, pop the bikes on board, and book into a local bed & breakfast. Possibly one of the cheapest and most enjoyable ways to enjoy the amazing countryside.
Coastal Trail Series
The coastal trail series run a brilliant set of races throughout the year along the southern coast. At each event you can enter distances ranging from 10km to 50km+ Ultra distances, so there’s something for everyone. This year we had groups head down to the South Devon, Dover, and Dorset races.
Transport to Club Races and Events
One of the perks of being part of the mighty LFTC as that the Club can help pay for transport (including hire cars/vans) to races and weekends away. Read more about vehicle hire.
