Happy New Year to you all!

I’ll try and cover the types of indoor trainers before going into the different apps available to aid with training (/racing) indoors.

Because we love to chat we have decided it is time to launch official Windrush WhatsApp groups!
As members of the Windrush family we know how important it is to feel supported and part of our family and we feel one of the ways we can help achieve this is by utilising the free instant messaging platform ‘WhatsApp’.
There are groups for general triathlon and race chat and the three disciplines to help divide the discussions and you can join them by heading …Continue
