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 the Queen’s Head pub in Heather at 09.00 every Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Friday.

Club night at Griffydam is every Wednesday starting at 7pm April to August or 8pm September to March.
