Training    Check our Facebook page for updates 


You don’t need to be a member to participate in our “show-and-go” training (you show up ready and attired to work out, and off we go, whether it’s 2 people or a hundred). New members and people thinking about training for a triathlon are more than welcome. Since we’re a social club, you might want to bring some money to hang out at post-workout haunts. Our famous Wednesday Nights are listed in the events calendar.

As always, we ask you wear a helmet when biking, follow the rules of the road, and show courtesy and respect to both vehicles and your fellow Mad Dogs. There’s no prize at the end of our training for the fastest: we admire good sportsmanship from people of all abilities and speed.
