Zurich - cyclists, runners, swimmers, triathletes...

Iím sure Iíve seen a bunch of similar threads but canít seem to find any on searching.

We (my girlfriend and I) would be interested in joining up with people or existing groups for road cycling, running or swimming (all things triathlon).

Weíre training for an ironman at the moment so longer stuff is preferable.

Iím based in Seefeld, Zurich and am not opposed to early starts now that sunrise is at 6am. Other than that most evenings and weekends Iíll be doing something.

In terms of speed:
-running: shorter (around 10km) hard runs around 5:15 min/km, on the long runs (20km +) more like 6:15
-bike*: Iíd say Iím a mid level cyclist. I can get up any of the hills around the area without too much bother, can cycle 4 hours plus at a social pace
-swim: less important for keeping in a group but around about 2min per 100m (I normally swim in Oerlikon pool)

*I should say we ride time trial bikes, which often puts people off from group riding but is never something weíve had any problems with.

My girlfriend is slower on the bike and run but quicker on the swim.

If anyone is interested, please get in touch. Also happy to go for beers etc. after and keep it social.
