Events

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. Over 50 every year.

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!).

Note: Anyone from the age of 12 can enter the club time trial events.

When riders find their 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 together with the other clubs within the area, it means that you can race several times a week once you get the bug.

Members also participate in other types of events as well; Track, 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 club runs!

So, feel free to contact 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.

A full list of this year’s events can be found in Quick Links (top right).
