The club was founded in 1924 making it over 90 years old. Test
Members of the Wheelers regularly compete in different branches of the sport including Track, Time Trials, Road Racing, Cyclo-Cross and Mountain Biking. The club has a regular Sunday morning ‘club run’ and also from time to time more specific leisure rides for ladies, families and off-road mountain biking.
In 2012 the Wheelers promoted a 2-day road race for the first time. This event has been ongoing, in June, ever since and now includes a Ladies 2 day event. We also organise the Holme Moss Hill Climb, club hill climb plus 10, 15 and 25 mile time trials throughout the racing season. The Sovereign 10 mile Time trial series consists of 15 evening TT’s and is as popular as ever with local riders.
The club has 2 British Cycling qualified coaches who are available to provide guidance to members of all ages. Young members are encouraged to participate in a variety of local events including Track coaching, Hill Climbs, the White Rose Youth League, Cyclo-cross and their own points section in the Sovereign 10 mile time trial league. In the past the club has helped international riders on their way to success including current world and Olympic champion Ed Clancy.
