As a multi-discipline club, we offer a range of cycling opportunities, aimed at all levels. We provide a mix of coached and non-coached sessions designed to improve fitness and skills in a group environment where you will benefit from training with other club members. Our Level 1 and Level 2 coaches have the experience to help you get started in a new sport or provide motivation for seasoned competitors.

We also hold two or three brick sessions over the course of the summer, held at a local Airfield, where you will benefit from the club coaches experience to give you confidence in improving your transitions. You will get plenty of practice getting on and off the bike! These are ideal for those new to triathlon and wanting to become more adept at the skill of transitions and to those aiming to shave a few precious seconds off their transition time before an important race.

Thursday Night 10mi TT WT host a very popular 10 mi TT held on certain Thursday evenings throughout the summer. This is a session suitable for all abilities and those looking to improve their performance and speed endurance. All are welcome and a number of other cycling clubs and local cyclists take part. These sessions enable riders to take part in a competitive event which is fun and informal. Results are published on the website and riders look to challenge themselves and beat their previous time. Details of our TT can be found here: www.waldentri.co.uk/index.php/training-sessions/cycling/10-mile-time-trials
