Bilbys have various items of Club Gear that are availble to members to hire for very reasonable rates.
We currently have windtrainers and a bike box. To enquire about these items, please send an email to Committee Member
We do not currently have any club bikes for loan, however, if you are keen on starting triathlon and the lack of a bike is the barrier to you starting, please contact Iain as we may be able to source the loan of a bike to you through an appeal to our members. Bilbys are also considering buying a few bikes for loan in the future.
The Bilbys owns a number of windtrainers for loan to members. These have a magnetic resistance and are very sturdy and hard wearing. They are easy to set up and use.
Windtrainers are an excellent way to get a bike workout in when the weather is bad and Gary Rolfe has previously used Thursday night running sessions as "brick sesssions" where people can bring their bike and windtrainer to do a run/ride set.
Hire rates are $10 per month in advance. A maximum time of loan is three months although longer will be at the discretion of the committee if you can't afford to purchase your own and there is no waiting list of other members (up to six months).
