COLT Spring Training Weekend

Hello COLTs

We have made a provisional booking for 20 beds at the Derwentwater Youth Hostel for the Spring Training Weekend from Friday 20th April to Sunday 22nd April.

The hostel is on the shores of Derwentwater with the passes of Honister, Newlands and Whinlatter right on the doorstep. Cost for dinner, bed and breakfast for 2 nights will be £96.00. The food is simple but plentiful. The views from the rooms rival those of any 5* hotel in the Lake District and if you are lucky you get to see a red squirrel while you are eating your breakfast!

Format for the weekend usually involves a longer bike on Saturday up to 100 miles and either a continuous brick session on Sunday or a longer run. However, there will be shorter options for anyone not wanting to go that long and the group may be split depending on numbers attending. Chris Wild will be leading the weekend ably assisted by Danny Rogerson.

At least one dip in Derwentwater is compulsory so don’t forget your wetsuit!

Could let me know if you would like to attend by Friday 12 January at the latest please. Email:

Hope you will be able to join us.
