We are very fortunate to have experienced and qualified coaches who lead our weekly swimming, running and strength and conditioning sessions that will help you improve. We also have weekly coached turbo training sessions during the Winter months. Our members are a great source of encouragement; there is almost certainly someone who has struggled with exactly the same point of technique, strength or endurance as you and they are always there to help.A great Club spirit
We have a vibrant Facebook community
for our members and those interested in triathlon and cycling. Throughout the year, our weekly training sessions and Saturday social, club and sporting rides are a great chance to get to know our other club members. On our cycling rides we also love visiting some great local places for coffee, tea and cake! Our Spring weekend cycling trip is a firm favourite; in previous years we have visited Derbyshire and the South Downs.
There are a variety of local and national events throughout the year that we take part in and where possible compete together. We have a number of informal socials nights during the year and our annual awards dinner
is where prizes are handed out to recognise the achievements of our members.What we expect from our members
We think membership is a two-way street and, therefore, we expect our members to act responsibly, think about their own and others’ safety, support our club and promote our sport.Before joining us, we ask you to agree to:
Take responsibility for your fitness. Training and competition are physically and mentally demanding; good preparation is vital for enjoyment and success. If in doubt, please seek professional advice.
Take responsibility for your conduct at all times. You are expected to act in the best interests of our club and with consideration and responsibility towards other members and the public at all times, especially when training with, or representing NC&TC.
Help make our club events a success. We ask that all our members take turns to help out at our Spring triathlon and duathlon. These are well-regarded and well-attended events, but they need the support of our members to succeed. We also have other opportunities to support the club and fellow members during our weekly time trials and at other occasional events.
Whilst not a condition of our membership, we do ask you to consider joining British Cycling and/or the British Triathlon Federation; our club is affiliated to these governing bodies. They set the standards, host the events and help promote the sports we participate in. Membership of these is a great way to support your sport and carries its own benefits, including insurance cover whilst you train and compete.
