Recently affiliated to Triathlon England, Gosforth Road Club is one of the largest and most active cycling clubs in the North East. Through the club secretary, Gosforth R.C. has a long association with triathlon and in recent years the number of club members competing in triathlon has steadily grown.
The club has a dedicated triathlon liaison officer, Richard Dodgson and is planning to organise triathlon specific training sessions in the future. Members of the club meet on both a Saturday and Sunday morning for rides of varying length and intensity around scenic Northumberland.
In addition to triathlon, the club can act as a friendly introduction to other cycling activities – road racing, time trialling, track racing and mountain biking, as well as holidays and other social activities.
