Abu Dhabi Triathlon Club
"Our goal is the same as it was in 2000 - to encourage people to take part in triathlon and the triathlon sports."
The club has over 200 members who come from many different nationalities - a normal Friday club ride could have at least a dozen countries represented - and they cater for all levels from beginner to expert.
It's always wise to check before trying to join a session or activity for the first time.
Details are available on their website www.abudhabitriclub.org which has listings of regular training sessions and events and other useful information like maps and links.
There is an active message board and forum at www.abudhabitriclub.proboards.com . Register for free and questions are welcome. There's also an Abu Dhabi Tri Club Yahoo email group.
