Hello and thanks for joining Team NBCC. We are a multisport race team as opposed to a club. As such we don't have an elected committee but everyone is welcome to raise points, make comments, organise rides etc. We are usually affiliated to Welsh Cycling, Welsh Triathlon, Cycling Time Trials and Assiociation of British Cycle Coaches but given the current COVID crisis there doesn't seem to be much call from members to join these bodies, but if the situation changes we can rejoin. The benefits of affiliation are mainly for those of you who want to race, so you could get reduced entry fees to some races and also race insurance. For time trials you will need to be a member of an affiliated club to take part in any events. The cost of affiliation to these bodies is almost £500/year, so that's pretty much where your subscription goes!
Adult membership is £15 and under 18’s £5. Your membership runs for 1 year from the date that you joined. You will be automatically be sent an email when its time to renew.
If you know someone else who wants to join then send them the link below.
We have our own Team Kit and very smart it is too!
The kit is manufactured by Pactimo and is very good quality and reasonably priced. We usually have a small amount in stock and place orders once or twice a year. We usually have shorts, jerseys, bib tights, long sleeve jerseys, winter jackets, arm and leg warmers, skinsuits and tri suits. If you're interested in getting any kit just get in touch
At the moment we're only doing turbo sessions via the app Zoom. This is working quite well and it definately beats training by yourself. Sessions are currently free.
Monday at 6pm is our usual turbo time but as we get closer to the start of the season there may be a Wednesday or Thursday evening session too. During adverse weather we also do Sunday morning sessions too. Check out the Facebook page for details.
We meet outside Tenby Leisure Centre usually at 8am on Sunday morning. Recently we've made an additional pick up point at Carew Castle car park at 8:20 but check NB Cycle Coaching Facebook page first. It depends who wants to ride but we can stop off and meet other riders anywhere.
The pace and duration of rides will set to the slowest rider but hopefully this will increase with fitness and experience. If we have over 10 riders we could split into groups and have different paced rides. If you are a beginner and unsure about riding on the road in a group now is a good time to start.
If the weather is poor we usually do a 2 hour Zoom turbo session from 8 to 10am. We will try and post in advance what the plans are but the weather can change quickly so keep an eye on NB Cycle Coaching Facebook page for details.
I'm a level 3 cycle coach and also a triathlon coach. I'm happy to give you advice on training and frequently do, whether you ask for it or not! I do bike fits, fitness assessments, fitness testing and coached rides, all at very reasonable rates! I can also do some bike repairs and recently I've been fitting tubeless tyres, which are a brilliant way of reducing the chance of punctures.
If you have any questions give me a ring or drop me a text.
