Welcome to the web based home of Coalville Wheelers Cycling Club.
The Coalville Wheelers is a Coalville based cycling club with over 80 years of history (established in 1930) 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 club house in Griffydam and the training and club runs which leave as follows:
Saturdays: Queen’s Head pub in Heather at 09.00 (09.30 during the winter).
Sundays: Club house at 9:00 during the summer (BST) and 09:30 during the winter. See Club Run Rota for run leader and destination. Check out our Facebook page for route details, as well as other information on the club, gossip and banter!
Saturday and Sunday rides are social at a steady pace (14 – 18mph) ie not training.
The Family Ride leaves the clubhouse at 10:00 summer and winter, but is temporarily suspended.
Most clubruns call in at a local café or club house for refreshments.
