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

CWCC Road Race Course
A brand new purpose built cycle circuit is nearing completion at New College, New Parks, near Leicester. It’s one km round with changing rooms, toilets and weekend cafe within the adjacent college buildings. Plenty of parking as well.
We’ve booked the circuit to give it a try on Sunday afternoons 25th June and 23rd July from 2pm until 4pm. So chance to race/ride in the morning, wash the car, cut the grass… and then bring your kids / grandkids to the circuit in the afternoon. (Any age, provided they are able to ride their bike safely). Why not bring a picnic, drinks and sun cream, as good weather has also been ordered!
The current plan is to initially let everyone ride round the circuit to get familiar with it, then to alternate between some mini races / skills tests for the kids and whilst they get their breath back, allow the adults the tear into each other with events like the devil take the hindmost (last rider eliminated each lap), points and scratch races. Maybe even a team pursuit. A good chance to try out bunch riding.
All just for fun with no prizes and no race licenses needed.
Names and £5 per family per day or £3 per individual to Alan Vallance or Tracy Symonds. Payment preferred by BACS to our bank account if possible using “Family day – June or July or both” as the reference. Or just hand over the cash when you see us!
Should be a fun afternoon for everyone, so please support this new event and let’s make it a success.
CWCC are organising 3 events as part of the Mallory Park Circuit Races this season.
Further details can be found on the Mallory Park RR League Website.
Al Vallance is co-ordinating for the club and helpers will be required on the night.
If you can help on either
evening, or both please let Al Val know via the form below:
