8:30pm - 9:30pm: Swim session at Lonsdale Pool, Mickleover.
Adults only, but will consider older juniors (14yrs+)
5:30pm: Run from HUUB HQ, Full Street
Steady 5-6 miles suitable for both for adults and juniors.
There will be two separate groups depending on ability and
there will be coaches there to offer advice and lead the groups.
As there are many cycling clubs around we have decided not to reinvent the wheel for adults and form yet another group to go out cycling.
I have spoken with Mickleover Cycling Club and they are more than happy for ‘Huub Academy’ members to go out cycling with them. They have triathletes already joining their rides. The first session is free , and as they are affiliated to British Cycling, you would be expected to join them. At £10 for annual subscription this is great value.
There are other clubs around: Derby Mercury Road Club and again the same would apply if you wished to ride with them.
There will be some adult bike training sessions at Darley Moor which HUUB Academy have planned so both cycling with a local bike club and sessions at Darley will provide you with the skills for group riding and technical skills needed both on the road and in competitions.
