Exciting New Aquabike Event at Triathlon Y Bala!

Published: 26.06.2024

We are thrilled to announce the addition of a new standard distance Aquabike event at this year’s Cycle Retreats Triathlon Y Bala, taking place on Sunday, 1st September.

In addition to our traditional Standard and Sprint Triathlons, we are proud to offer this new Aquabike event, which will also serve as the Welsh Triathlon Aquabike Championship. This exciting opportunity is open to all, but it also marks the first Welsh National Aquabike Championship, giving Triathlon Cymru members the chance to compete for national titles!

Event Details

The Bala Aquabike event kicks off with a water start in the iconic Llyn Tegid, with the stunning Aran Fawddwy mountain providing a breathtaking backdrop. Following an out-and-back swim, participants will transition to a 38km bike course on fully closed roads. Despite the mountainous surroundings, the bike route is fast and flat, perfect for setting a personal best or for beginners looking for a smooth ride. The route runs along the western shore of the lake, through the southern lowlands of Eryri, before looping back to Bala.

Join the Excitement

Don't miss this fantastic opportunity to be part of the inaugural Welsh National Aquabike Championship. Whether you are a seasoned athlete aiming for a personal best or a beginner looking to enjoy a scenic ride, this event promises to be a memorable experience.

A multisport event in Bala has been an important event on the calendar in Wales. This year we are delighted that Always Aim High Events have agreed to include an Aquabike event within the programme. This Aquabike will be the first Welsh National Aquabike Championship and an opportunity for Triathlon Cymru members to become national champions in the event.
Aquabike has grown in popularity as an event in its own right, but also for race preparation and training. I hope that many athletes will be able to build this into their programme
