We are very saddened to hear yesterday that club sponsor Cycle Republica have closed.
Looking to kick start your 2020? Join our wonderful Energy Link Performance coaches for a week of living like a pro triathlete (swim, bike, run, eat, sleep, repeat) whilst training at altitude alongside your tri buddies at the annual Energy Link Triathlon Training Camp in Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountains, NSW from Thursday 2 to Thursday 9 January 2020.
Just like a rain dance, the commencement of our summer brick training sessions seems to have triggered a change in the weather and for the second successive weekend, after months of dry weather, we are again expecting heavy rain just in time for our brick training session at Centennial Park!
Cycling in heavy rain is not ideal for comfort or safety. Accordingly, for this Saturday 12 October, our brick training session will temporarily return to the BTC Clubhouse at Balmoral Beach, with a start time of 7.30am. Turbo trainers are required.
A reminder that our Saturday morning brick (bike run) training sessions are moving to Centennial Park from tomorrow Saturday 5 October, with a 6.30am start time.
Check out the great discounts that club sponsor Cycle Republica are offering BTC members on bikes and Garmin watches.

Well done to everyone who joined us for the first club event of the 2019-20 season…the PACE ATHLETIC 5km Run Time Trial #1. It was fantastic to see such a big turn out, including a healthy contingent of juniors who absolutely smashed it! Check out the full results here.
From mid-October to the beginning of December, Mosman Juniors Rugby Club will be running their training sessions at Rawson Oval. Whilst we have managed to run our track training sessions at the same time as junior rugby training sessions in previous seasons, Mosman Juniors Rugby have advised that they are unable to share usage of the oval with us this season.
As a result, from Thursday 17 October to Thursday 5 December 2019 inclusive, BTC track training sessions will run at the slightly later time of 7.00pm to 9.00pm (rather than 6.30pm to 8.30pm).
We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause our existing track training session attendees.
This change will also impact upon our 12-17 yrs Juniors Training Program attendees, who’s Block 1 track training sessions will now run from 7.00pm to 8.00pm (rather than previously advertised 6.30pm to 7.30pm).
If you have any questions or feedback in regard to this change, please do get in touch.
No, we don’t mean a house brick! ‘Brick’ is a training session where you train two or more disciplines, one after the other. Check out this article by Energy Link coach Bruce Thomas on the importance of brick training for triathletes…

Sadly, BTC spin (Tuesdays 6.15pm @ BTC Clubhouse) is no more. Coach Lew had been kindly volunteering his time to run this sessions free-of-charge for BTC members for many years, but with increasing workload and coaching demands he now needs to step away. Do you have coaching experience and are interested in running these sessions? If so, please get in touch with committee.
