Cardiff Triathletes was formed in 1984 by a small group of people interested in the, then, new sport of triathlon.
The objectives of the club are to encourage and promote the sport of triathlon in the Cardiff and the surrounding area.
The club is affiliated to the British Triathlon Federation via Welsh Triathlon and individual members are encouraged to join these organisations.
Just thinking while some folks are still sunning themselves in Majorca, we might have some sunshine on Saturday, albeit a few degrees cooler I suspect.
Thought I would suggest a route for the morning, leaving Maindy at 9am as usual. The wind is looking to be changeable so no real defined best direction. As such thought out towards Usk might be good as its usually nice inthe sun, plus theres a cafe at the garden centre at about 2/3rds of the way round if folks fancy it.
Propose to head out up Rhiwbina Hill, round Caerphilly, Rudry, Basalleg, Caerleon, Usk, Catsash and back on the flats. About 60 miles with the bulk of the climbs being in the first 20 miles and then pretty rolling and obviously flat at the end.
I have tried to plot it on Google maps so its public but its not as technical as some and it does not show elavation. Whos up for it?
Also, if anyone can post in FB that would be great as I cant do that in work.
