Welcome to the web based home of Coalville Wheelers Cycling Club.

The Coalville Wheelers is a Coalville based cycling club with 80 years of history in all types of cycling.

We are a friendly club and we welcome anyone who wants to get involved in cycling for training, racing, sportives or simply for the joy of riding. You can find out about our club runs, time trial and road racing events by browsing the site or by contacting us here.Although we have a strong racing presence in local time trial races the club’s heart is both our clubhouse in Griffydam and the training and club runs which leave as follows:

Saturdays: Queen’s Head pub in Heather at 09.00.

Sundays: Clubhouse at 9:00 during the summer (BST) and 09:30 during the winter.
The Family Ride leaves the clubhouse at 10:00 summer and winter.

The Saturday runs are a faster pace and not suited for beginners. However the Sunday runs are catered to run at the slowest riders pace and depending on the size and ability of the group may be split into 2 groups.Most clubruns call in at a local cafe for refreshments.

    Still need a few more marshals (3 to 4) to help at the XC on NYE. Come and support your club!! ... See MoreSee Less

    Dear Members,

    Your HELP is required to make an event a success!

    After the success of last years event the club will be running a Cyclo-Cross once again this year. This year the event will be run on New Years Eve which falls on a Sunday. This means you can still go out to celebrate the New Year without fear of having to get up early on New Years day to wander round a cyclo-cross. As last year the event is being held at Cattows Farm, nr Heather. We’ve switched the car park field though to prevent a re-occurrence of the issues with the entrance we had last year.

    The club has subscribed to the newly formed Leicestershire CX League, so our event will be a counting event towards this league. There are 8 races throughout the day and for those who have not experienced Cyclo-Cross before it is a very exciting form of racing, requiring a mixture of speed, stamina and bike handling skills and is run on a compact mixed terrain course of between 1.5 – 2 miles. So unlike a road race you can see the riders for the majority of the course and they typically lap in 6-8 minutes.

    To make this event a success we will need a great deal of helpers, not only on the day, but also before and after the event. Cyclo-cross events attract a lot of U16’s so it could be a good advert for the club to draw in younger members.

    The type of helpers that will be required, are:

    – Lap scorers – whilst we will have electronic lap scoring we still have to do it manually, just in case
    – Course Marshals
    – Start/Finish Marshals
    – Pit Area Marshals
    – Car park Marshals
    – Signing On Tent
    – People to help setting the course out and dismantling at the end of the day.

    Unlike last year this year this will include putting up 3-4 gazebo’s. We have got access to some free one’s this year through the league and the BC so this saves us quite a bit of money. But we will have to put them up and take them down on the day, or day before.

    The plan is to set the course out on the run up to New Years Eve, but we will need to check it again on the morning of the event and possibly adjust once it’s been inspected by the commissar.

    The first race starts at 10:15 and riders for this will be there from 08:30. The last event finishes at around 15:15. So it will be a full day, particularly for those setting out the course and dismantling in the dark afterwards. Talking with other organisers, course setters/dismantlers expect to be at the course from 6:30 in the morning until gone 6 in the evening.

    As last year I have organised an outside catering van (read burger) at no cost to the club.

    One final point – the event will take place regardless of the weather; it is cyclo-cross and winter after all! 🙂

    Please get in touch with Neil Taylor if you can help on the day along with what capacity you can help in.
    You can ride on the day and still help!!

    Can’t promise the weather will be as good as last years event though…………...

    Thanks,

    All, For Tom’s slide show event on January 5th at 7pm, I have arranged for Doner Master in Whitwick to give us 50% off of the pizza prices. You may think well it is buy one get one free, well it is if you want 2 pizzas. So for those only wanting one pizza it’s 50% off.

    I will be posting a link to their website for you to peruse at you leisure, you will need to order and pay the week of the event, but please ensure you give them at least 24hrs notice!

    When you order, say it is for the Coalville Wheelers Cycling Club and they will add your order to the big delivery.

    Please watch out for the link later. Cheers Mark

    After speaking with Tom, on the slideshow night we would like to propose pizzas! I can arrange discount from a local pizza delivery firm where we can then place individual orders directly for delivery either before, during or after the slideshow, please like or comment below if you are interested. If so I will get cracking to find a suitable pizza place to use. Thanks Mark. ... See MoreSee Less
