Hi,

I just transferred into the final year at Cardiff University and will thus stay here until summer next year. I already looked at joing a tri-club here, but have to sort out some financial issues first.

Are there any good cycling routes around here (only have a tri-bike which are not allowed in group rides)? Any special driving behaviours or traffic situations I should watch out for while on the road? I printed out one route to the airport and back, around 25miles.

What about good (and reasonable price) bike shops in Cardiff? I have been to Evanscycles, but maybe there cheaper and better ones?

Cheers,

Max

Hi. I notice there is a tri group in the David Lloyd gym, but it seems a bit pricey to me. There is another tri group in Newport that seems more reasonable in price, found at http://www.newporttri.co.uk/I will probably be looking at joining this group when I get my running distance up. Has the uni not got a tri club?

There appears to be a Cardiff Uni tri club called TRiKS. A guy called Alex Thorley came 1st in a sprint tri held this year at Droitwhich. Might be an idea to search him out. HTHs
