Tonight's spin session

Audrey cannot unfortunately make it tonight but we will still have a session on the bikes for 60 - 90 minutes.

Bring a towel, energy drink and maybe something to eat for those staying for 90 mins.

Alternatively, do a set on the bikes and then go for a run either on the treadmill or outside.

Essential training session so see you later

Social - this wednesday!!

Hi everyone

We thought it was about time we all got together outside of our cycling shoes and speedos for a friendly beer!

One of our regular swim session members Rob has suggested the Half Moon Pub (on half Moon Lane in herne Hill) on Wednesday for a rollapalooza event.

It looks a bit of fun and if you're having withdrawal symptoms from missing the normal Wednesday swim session, you can perhaps have a go and challenge another…

Committee Positions

Hi Guys

Apologies for the delay in getting back to all of you regarding the committee positions we discussed previously. Firstly, thanks all for your interest and showing your commitment to the club. We can't do it alone and need as many people as possible to help out.

Over the last few weeks, we have been identifying club objectives and what the priorities are over the next few months so this process has taken slightly longer than…

Many thanks

... dont pack the wetsuit away just yet.

The lido pool is still open and they plan for it to continue until the first week of October.

Swim sessions will carry on (uncoached) as normal. The pool is almost empty so co come along and enjoy - last night the water was a beautiful 32 degrees ;-)

Crystal Palace Swim - Monday nights anyone?

Hi Windrushers

We are busy trying to secure pool time to replace the lido pool over the winter period to complement our Friday swims at JAGS.

We have tentatively secured Crystal Palace 50m pool on a Monday night at 20.30 for an hour which is great news (thanks to Sue and Louise for this). We are hoping that this will form an important part of the winter training schedule.

Before we go ahead and confirm things though, it would be good to gauge…

FOR SALE Mens 2XU C1 Wetsuit - Size Medium

Hi Guys

I'm selling my wetsuit if anyone is interested. I've always felt it was slightly too small for my height and so I need a new one. It's served me very well and just needs a new owner now.

In great condition - only a few minor cosmetic marks on the shoulder, and ideal for someone needing a mid range suit for the triathlon season.

I would like £75 for it. (Wiggle is selling them for £234)

Ideal for someone 5ft 5 to 5ft 9 and…

Rich Foulerton's last session


Tomorrow's swim session will be Rich Foulerton's last session at the club. Most of you may not know Rich (as quite frankly he doesn't leave much of an impression), but for those who do know him he's been a big part of the club since its inception a year ago.

Rich is upping sticks and moving to the countryside (Guildford) and so will only continue as an honorary member of the club. Rich has been a big part of helping to set the club up and many of you new…
