Lighter nights = Wednesday chaingang time! Instead of club turbo, our Wednesday evening bike session will now be a chaingang session meeting at 6.30pm on Waterton Industrial Estate (aim for SAS international/ CGI Waterton Office – we will park there). Options for different abilities and a brick session for those interested. All welcome! – Lauren

A big well done to lots of club members this past weekend….
A big group headed down west to Tenby and completed two loops that were part of the Ironman Wales bike course.
Chris Adams and Jon Bennett took part in the Margam Park duathlon. I hear the bike course was eventful! Which Way??
Damian Crombe, Jeff and Ceri Thomas did the Llanelli Half Marathon all with PBs.
Dan Morgan did a 20+mile training run.
Well done Pencoed Tri. Apologies to anyone or anything I have missed.
For the next four weeks the club is looking for juniors 14 – 16yr olds and anyone who wishes to have a go at triathlons to come and train with us at Pencoed swimming pool between 7 and 8 pm on a Friday. Please email the club prior to attendance as spaces are limited. We can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
