The Wheelers have in the past been noted for their promotions at club level, within the district and several National events. We still continue to promote a full programme of events throughout the racing season.
Our Wednesday evening time trial events form the bedrock of the club racing scene with over twenty events from April to early September. A variety of challenges await the experienced rider and the complete novice. The Wednesday night events are run on a variety of courses based around our clubhouse in Griffydam.
We also have a full programme of Friday 10 mile events for those who want yet another test against the watch. Both the Wednesday and Friday events are excellent for the new rider who wants to have a go and glean tips from established riders. There is no need to feel bashful about riding as there is always someone who rides at your speed and the fun is in trying to gain those extra seconds to lead your own peer group. Newcomers are particularly catered for with prizes in the handicap awards. ( a little too complicated to explain here!)
When riders find there feet…err pedals…then other races can be tackled. Our Open events attract riders from all over the country in the different disciplines of time-trialling and road racing and the other clubs within the area mean that you can race several times a week once you get the bug.
Members also participate in other types of events as well; Sportives and Audaxes, Mountain Biking, Cyclo-Cross etc. so we can cater for all types of cycling and of course there’s our bedrock of clubruns!
So, feel free to ring one of the club contacts to find out about how you can share in the fun and sense of well being that cycle racing provides.

YHA Thurlby, Bourne, Lincolnshire, PE10 0EE
YHA Thurlby is a 15th century former village forge with a lovely lawned garden and orchard. It is located in a peaceful spot in the centre of an unspoilt Lincolnshire village. The homely former forge is full of character and has both Victorian and Georgian additions to the building – perfect for history buffs!
The Fens are natural cycling country and Rutland Water, an important area for bird life, offers a great choice of watersports and walks – perfect for activity breaks and walking and cycling holidays.
We have the luxury of a one night exclusive hire of the hostel, which will cost only £20 each. As the hostel is self catering, our own Jamie Oliver will be preparing the breakfast, with help needed. This will include cereal, toast, jam, marmalade, beans, croissant, choc au pain with afternoon cake and beverages on arrival.
A table is booked at the local inn; the Horseshoe for the Saturday night feast. Pay for this on the night. I will send
out the menu for you to choose from, but they do have a website (www.thehorseshoethurlby.co.uk) for you to peruse now, if you wish to.
Oh, we have to bike there from the clubroom at 10 am on the Saturday. It is about 60 miles, through lovely countryside and in areas we don’t often venture through. Cafe stops essential, speeding not allowed. Mark and Lesley have once again kindly offered to take our bags…keep ’em light!
