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.
Round 4 of the National Trophy Cyclo-cross series is taking place at Milton Keynes on Sunday 1 December. More details from the BC website can be found here.
In addition see here for the technical details of the event including sign-on location, car park, directions etc.
If you were thinking about going out on the Saturday morning road ride but couldn't because the 'navigators' had the gall to go off enjoying themselves in Belgium then there is another opportunity for you.
Dave Farrell is supporting two road rides, one on Saturday (November 23) and one on Sunday (November 24) both leaving Gosling Sports Park at 9am. Both rides will be for about three hours (55-60 miles) and are aimed at those riders who are comfortable riding the Wednesday evening Road Bikes On the Track sessions. There will be no coffee stop!
Riders should be self-supporting just in case they need to get back before the group. This means lights, spares, tools, a phone (charged and with credit!) and some money. Spare clothing, drinks, food etc can be carried in the car.
If it is raining heavily the riders will decide whether to go or not and if it is icy or less than 1 degree C then the ride won't be on.
It was announced yesterday (November 14) by the SweetSpot Group, the organiser of next years Womens Tour of Britain, that stage 4 of the event will start in lifetime club member Laura Trotts home town of Cheshunt and will finish in Welwyn Garden City where she began her career.
The stage race will start on Wednesday May 7 and finish on Sunday May 11. Stage 4 will take place on Saturday May 10.
Mark Fraser (from Green Jersey Web Design) and Mark Wyer (BC Go-Ride Coach, Eastern Region) have set up a new website to provide a source of cycling information and advice for youth riders and their parents. They hope that it will help young racing cyclists learn about the sport, enjoy their cycling, and be the best they can be. The new site can be found at www.youthcyclesport.co.uk.

As you may know the club has it's own email box for contacting its members. Although the majority of emails get through we do have a number of emails that are returned with email address unknown. There must also be members who have never had their email address added to our list.
Last year, with conjunction with CC Ashwell, we launched the Muddy Monsters Go Race off-road series and now it's back again for 2013/14.
The first race will be at Welwyn on Saturday 26th October and will replace the off-road session at Gosling. It is aimed at those people who have never raced before and so if you normally attend this session why not turn up and have a go?
