CCTRI has received grant funding to purchase a “LOAN BIKE” from Wyong Shire Council.

This bike is for beginners who would like to try a triathlon or duathlon race using a proper race bike.

The club therefore used the grant to purchase a good quality race bike for that purpose.

The bike is a CANNONDALE CAAD8 S8 with a 51cm frame size.

This size bike can be adjusted to suit most young (new) members of the club by seat adjustments only.

It would generally suit a 10 to 18 year old girl or boy, or a young adult.


To borrow the bike, please contact Rob Hekking by the Thursday before each race date, where pick-up can be arranged. Contact Rob on:
