GTC has a range of hire equipment available to all members for training and races.
The power meters are ideal for pacing in longer distance races or as essential training kit. See Craig Ross’ detail on their benefits (Using a Power Meter to cycle faster).
The aero wheels can be extremely beneficial in races, often adding several miles per hour to your speed for the same effort. These are not just for the ‘fast folk’ in the club, all would benefit from using them. They can take Shimano or SRAM in 9/10/11 speed cassettes and also make your bike look very cool.
Wetsuits and bike boxes can also be hired, either for one-off travel/races or perhaps to try before investing in your own.
To recap the club has:
2 power meters – £40 per month
3 bike boxes – £17.50 per week
2 sets of aero/deep section wheels – £25 per week
Range of wetsuits – £10 per weekend or £30 for 3 months
As the season gets under way, various items will be in demand, especially for races. If you are interested in hiring equipment, please reserve the kit you require as soon as possible.
