2024 Workout & Event Schedule

This 2024 will see some changes to our previous workout regimen!

Throughout the season (May - Sept) the BTC hosts a variety of recurring workouts and a few special events. 

This season, our events will be changing which day of the week they are hosted. Brick workouts will be Saturday Mornings. Time Trials will be Tuesday evenings. This change is to accomodate availability of leadership and volunteers. 

PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE SCHEDULE LISTED BELOW, which is also reflected in our BTC Google Calendar

Brick Workouts

A "brick" workout is any training session that involves two or more triathlon disciplines. In most cases brick workouts tend to include biking and running, which is the case for the BTC brick workouts.  

The origin of the term is a bit of a mystery.  Some say that it came from the combination of Bike-Run-ICK!  But others claim that the term was first coined by a couple of pro triathletes who felt that combining multiple disciplines together in these types of workouts was just like stacking building blocks, or bricks, to build to something larger. Thus after finishing the workout one of them said "just another brick in the wall," inspired by the Pink Floyd song.

Time Trials

The BTC generally holds 4 time trials per year. This year they will remain hosted out of our Northtown workout site. The day of the week is moving to TUESDAYS and are scheduled for the 3rd Tuesday of each month.

The final time trials of the year is our "Members' Memorial" time trial as a tribute to BTC members we've lost over the years.

Group Bike Rides?

In the past there have been coordinated Weekend Group Bike Rides. Currently there are no plans for this type of group activity this summer.

If you are a member and would like to assist the Board of Directors in re-establishing / resuming this activity, reach out to the Board of directors either through email or Facebook to start up a conversation!

BRICK Locations 

The first formal BRICK of the year will be hosted at Sunshine Park in West Seneca. See our Southtown workout page. Due to inclement weather, we did not host an intro/orientation class. 

The 2nd BRICK will be at the Northtowns site. 

For the 3rd BRICK, the club will make a return to the Chestnut Ridge location!

The 4th BRICK will be at Beaver Island on Grand Island, similar in location to our Spring Thing event. 

See the BTC Club Calendar for the latest up to date scheduling of the Brick workouts.
