I'm a member of the Cambridge Tri club. I just go to the swimming training sessions, which is really excellent. You can go to the training sessions if you aren't a member but you pay extra. There are loads of other training sessions but at the moment I can only make the swim ones.

A couple of weekends ago I went open water training with 3 people from the club. That was good because I wouldn't have gone on my own, and they were all so helpful when I totally panicked at the start.

I think it is worth joining a club just so that you know what is going on in your area. I wouldn't have even known where to go open water swimming without the club email list.

Being part of a tri club has its merits but I feel its a disadvantage in a way because you tend to find that members in the club will concentrate on either their weakest or "easiest" discipline.
For this reason i belong to a Swim club, cycling club and run cross country for a running club...hence I get a good training session what ever discpline I do

i still recommend racing at Eastway to build up strength and speed..
They often have novice and 4th cat events and its good bike handling skills..

I've just moved back to work in Manchester after 3 years in Brum and have joined Manchetser Tri Club. What it has given me is organised, focused training. Indoor pool sessions on a Tuesday evening, Thursday morning, Saturday morning and Sunday evening, all coached. Open water swim on Thursday (just got back from 6 laps round Salford Quays and tucking into my pasta!!) which I would never get on my own or at the gym.
My experience is positive so far. I'd certainly recommend finding a local tri club if you can.
