We recently held our first THREO ride with one of our lovely stockists, Athlete Service in Henley - which was a great success so we owe a huge thank you to everyone who came, and to Athlete Service for hosting us!
It was a great opportunity to get a group of women who love cycling and racing together, taking on a scenic 35 mile ride followed by coffee and cake. To us, that is pretty much a dream day.
We loved meeting you all, and talking about cycling, triathlon and upcoming races with some very inspiring individuals.
Our ride was led by Laura and Sophie with guest appearances from Lawrence, one of the two super keenos behind Athlete Service and Angus Thomas - the only person I have ever seen ride a bike that fast with a massive camera onboard!
If you are in the Henley area, in fact, even if you are not - you need to get yourself to Athlete Service, which is Oxfordshire’s best sports shop, café and clinic, in the heart of Henley-on-Thames.
They are cycling and triathlon specialists, with incredibly knowledgable and passionate staff. expert bike fitting, running coaching, and swimming analysis in their Endless Pool are all offered, together a diverse range of the best sports clothing (and obviously its the best, it includes THREO) and equipment. You can grab an artisan brewed coffee and locally made cake at the café afterwards while you browse our books or use the free wifi (make sure you ask for the fridge cake, it's so tasty!).
Upstairs at Henley Practice they also have a fully serviced sports injury and fitness clinic including a chiropractor, physiotherapists and sports masseurs, an elite gym space for one-to-one and class-based personal training and strength and conditioning, and a mirrored studio for their popular spinning, Pilates and yoga classes. Pretty much everything you might need for your training and racing needs.
When we are there, we find it incredibly hard to leave!
