I am founder of Capital Tri - we have offered coached open water and triathlon experiences to people of all backgrounds for 6 years. We were the 1st to get access to the Lee Valley Velo Park post London 2012 and the 1st to organise swims at West Reservoir.

After swimming we like to go for breakfast! You'll meet me and a group of like minded swim enthusiasts

The host is very kind and nice. Thip trip is a very special experience for me. If you can swim, I recommend you to join it. It is better than getting London Eye.
