Club Trips


Italy Training Camp

Sat 28 April to Sat 5 May 2018 – Hotel Riz, Viale G. Carducci, 182, 47042 Cesenatico FC, Italy

The 2018 training camp will be the club’s 12th visit to Hotel Riz (pronounced Ritz), and here’s why –
A good location with plenty of riding options, experienced Italian cycling guides, a comfortable hotel with very friendly and helpful staff, and last, but by no means least, fabulous local food. All in a package that provides unrivalled value for money. And it’s in Italy. A country and people that lift the spirits like no other.

Triathletes can also add swimming and running sessions to their programme. For swimming you can choose between the Adriatic or Cesenatico’s large municipal swimming pool, just a five minute walk from the Riz. For running there’s the sandy beach, the promenade or local park.

Calshot Velodrome

Regular trips to the UKs indoor velodromes are organised by the club. 2016 included day trips to the Olympic velodrome in Lea Valley and to the new velodrome in Derby. The highlight is an annual weekend trip to Southampton for two sessions on the thrilling 150m Calshot Velodrome.

2018 date to be confirmed (likely early autumn) – Calshot Velodrome, Calshot Spit, Fawley, Calshot, Southampton SO45 1BR


Dawn Raid

The Dawn Raid, usually held in the long days of summer, leaves Club HQ at the crack of dawn and makes a hundred mile round trip to the coast for a hearty breakfast.

Sunday 15th July 2018
Club HQ Shakers Lane, IP32 7BH to Lock Tearooms, Heybridge Basin, CM9 4RS

The Dawn Raid is our annual big ride to the coast, and this year the Raid will be heading South to the Lock Tearooms on the Blackwater Estuary near Maldon in Essex.

After complimentary coffee to wake you up, this 100 mile ride leaves the club room at 06:00 sharp. We head for the coast and a hearty breakfast, before splitting into different pace groups for the run back to Bury. We’ll finish off with a pub stop at the end of the ride (so you can re-hydrate before heading home for a well earned nap!)

Places are strictly limited and fill up quickly so email secretary@westsuffolkwheelers.org to book your place. First come, first served!
