Tri-clubs: social networks or militaristic?
A resounding no! Even in the smallest of tri clubs there is so much variety, you have some people who train really hard, but no one boasts about it, if anything they are the ones everyone takes the piss out off for having no life! They are great for socialising with people who have the same interests, and if like me you always think you are boring your family/friends with tri-talk its great to speak to people as passionate about the sport as you are. However if you are looking to improve joining a tri-club will help greatly.
