We're an expanding club based in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire. The club offers many opportunities and services to the cycling community, and Welwyn Wheelers CC members participate in all aspects of cycle sport and leisure. You'll find plenty of information here about the club and what we do. If you'd like to get involved, or just find out a little more, don't hesitate to get in touch - we'd be pleased to hear from you.
See here for ticket selection and food choice....
As a follow on from the women's track bike sessions over the summer, Welwyn Wheelers have secured a block of 4 sessions starting on Saturday 22nd November. These sessions will run from 11:00 am until 12:00.
The sessions will be run on the Velodrome using road bikes and will focus on group riding skills and basic road race skills.
If the sessions are well supported then we hope to continue running them after Christmas, if we can secure the track time.
There is no need to book for these sessions, just turn up with a suitable bike and cycling kit.
If you need any more info then please get in touch.
Welwyn Wheelers coach
Welwyn Wheelers caters for riders from all sections of the cycling community but principally is a racing club, encouraging members to participate in the many types of racing available both locally and nationally.
As part of the on-going development of women riders, the club is now forming a Women’s Race Section. This is for any women wishing to race, from Novice to Elite standard and aged between 17 and 60 years. The aim of the Race Section is to provide:
In addition if you think you can contribute in other ways, such as administration, coaching etc. this is also for you.
Welwyn Wheelers Cycle Club
Welwyn Wheelers Academy are now accepting applications for 2015 Junior Riders (both male and female) for the upcoming season.
Eastern Region are running a series of Contenders Cyclo-Cross training sessions this season. These sessions are designed for our best youth riders in the region to prepare them for national level competition. They are intensive training sessions that enable riders to work with others of a similar standard and identify weaknesses that can be worked on in club sessions.
Riders are expected to be racing Cyclo-Cross regularly and have their own Cyclo-Cross bike. This year we are taking Youth aged riders (Under 14's and Under 16’s) and first year juniors.
There will be a limit of 20 riders per session so you will need book with me – just email to book on.
The dates are:
Sun 5th October Welwyn
Sat 1st November Colchester
Sat 6th December Hog Hill (TBC)
Sat 20th December Ipswich
The sessions usually take 2–3 hours during a morning. Charges will vary depending on the venue but are usually less than £5.
Club coaches are welcome to watch or assist – please let me know if you want to come.
Go-Ride Coach - Eastern
With the women's track cycling sessions now officially finished, it seems a shame for this great project to end now. With this in mind, I will be running a track competition this Saturday from 12-2 pm. This will be open to any rider who has taken part in any of the women's track coaching sessions.
The racing will follow an Omnium format with a scratch race, a time trial and a handicap race. We may do some more if time allows. All for just £3!
I would also like to have a chat afterwards about future sessions or group rides. It's up to you what you want to do so get your thinking caps on!
I do not have everyone's email so please pass on if you think I missed someone.
Hope to see you on Saturday.
