  • The first of our time-trial league events takes place on Wednesday 4th May on the A10 (South) course. First rider off at 19:30 but please be at the start by 19:00 to collect your number.

    The event is open to any member of a CTT registered club. Entry fee is £5.00.

  • Belgian riders, especially Flandrians, have a reputation for relishing foul weather - the wetter, colder and windier the better. Which Wheelers best channel their inner Flandrians?

  • This is our last competitive event of the season. All you have to do is ride for 1.23 km whilst climbing 60m. Come on! That's only 5%! You may not win but it's fun to see how fast you can go - and of course if you're in it you get bragging rights over everyone who isn't.

    The event is at Digswell - there is a map here

  • Wheelers' Club 10 28th July, F20/10

  • First rider off at 19:31. Entry is online only!

  • Old Skool TT this Sunday

    This is a 10 mile TT but without aerodynamic aids - so no pointy helmets, tri-bars, deep section wheels etc. Some riders go the whole hog and turn up on vintage bikes. Others go further by actually ageing themselves. It's a relaxed event but there is a club trophy to be won!

  • Next club TT is on Wednesday 7th June

    This event is on the F10/10 (A10 North) course. First rider off at 19:31.

  • Next Wheelers 10 mile TT

    Next Wednesday 2nd June, 19:30 on the F20/10 (A10 South).

  • The Wheelers' summer Wednesday evening club runs are starting again on 19th May. We are hoping for some nice warm summery evenings!

  • Resurfacing work is scheduled on the A414 which means we cannot use it for the event we planned for 19th May. We are hoping to move to the Cole Green Course (FX4/10). However, we need to have this change agreed by the police so we cannon confirm it at present. 

    Look out for further news on this.

  • With the CTT authorising events from 29th March and, we hope, some prospect of a full season, we have published our programme of Club TTs. These events are free to members and are open to members of CTT-affiliated clubs for a fee of £5. Some events are marked as "Come and Try". These are available to anyone whether or not they are members of a CTT affiliated club.

    Please note that special COVID procedures are in place!

  • With the lock-down rules changing on Monday 29th March the rule of six will return. However, following negotiations between Sport England and the Government, organised outdoor sports will be exempt from this limit.

  • Wheeler Jonny Spowart completed his grueling 24 hour challenge in aid of the charity "Head for Change". The ride took place on 6th and 7th March, 12 hours each day, 8am-8pm, and was completed on a Turbo trainer using the Zwift software. Jonny had to overcome some difficult moments but rode 780 km to smash his fundraising target with over £2,900 raised.

  • Bill first joined the club in 1977 and was made a life member in 2015. Many will remember him as a kind and always considerate companion on club runs. Bill often gave up his time to help the club including, most recently, refurbishing club race signs each winter. He was active in several local causes and organised a number of charity events.

  • Head for Change

    Jonny Spowart bill be attempting a 24hr Zwift ride on 6th and 7th March. 12 hours each day. 8am-8pm. This is in aid of the charity Head for Change which aims to provide a "safe space for our sporting heroes, past, present and future. Head for Change is a new charity, pioneering positive change for brain health in sport and supporting ex-players who are affected by neurodegenerative disease as a result of their career playing football or rugby".

  • We did not manage to run the Time Trial league in 2020 because of the Covid restrictions but we did manage to run some races including all of the Out of Season events and of particular note is the magnificent haul by Alex Powell who, by winning two of the OOS events and coming second in the other, ran away with the Out of Season Best All Rounder competition.  He also won the Old Skool race for good measure!  Other winners of individual events were Gareth Wignall, Claire Gopoulos and Brian Hill.  Well done to them all.

    The winners of the 2020 awards are as follows:

  • On Sunday 19th January Wheelers' members gathered at Mayflower Place in Hertingfordbury for their annual dinner and awards ceremony. This year the start time was put back to 4:00 pm so many had been able to complete club rides in the morning, thus providing themselves with some justification to indulge fully in the food provided.
