  • Congratulations Emily! She beat all-comers to win the Wheelers' Hill Climb Cup. Is this the first female winner in our history?

    Congratulations also to the other three competitors. Good times all round and much, much better than the 150+ members who neither rode nor came to watch.

  • Nice sunny morning but just three riders. However, there was an excellent debut ride from Andy Lewis getting well under 30 mins on a road bike. As this was his first ride this season Andy takes the Scrubbers trophy. There was also a return for Lee who was narrowly beaten by Sam who took the 81" restricted gear trophy.

  • This event was postponed from July when there were insufficient entries. Sadly, despite all the effort that went into arranging permissions for a new date (Sam) plus the efforts of the signs marshall (Lee) and timekeepers (Bob and Marcia) there were still only two competitors. So well done to both of them! Sam is the new holder of the Old Skool cup

    Thanks to Bob Brown and Peter Bloomfield for timing and the usual guy (Lee) for the signs.

    Cancelled as we were unable to place safety signs.

    Cool for the last day of June but dry. Yiannis maintained his dominance. Another strong ride from Graeme.

  • 16 Jun 21

    Yiannis returns to the top on a warm, humid night on the A414.

  • 02 Jun 21

    Sadly, three Wheelers had to withdraw at the last moment but the three that remained provided some close competition. Well done Hanif Jetha who nudged Claire out of first place on his first Wheelers' TT (and his first anywhere for many years). Commiserations to two riders - Yiannis Gopoulos and Sam Brown - who both suffered punctures and had to retire.

  • 19 May 21

    The May showers relented and we were granted a sunny evening with light winds. Graeme continued his recent good form and led home the Wheelers. There were good results amongst the private entries too - both Andy Georgiou, and Andrew Halpin were first time time trialists.

    Thanks to Peter and Graham for the time-keeping and Lee for the signs.

  • 05 May 21

    It was another cold, inhospitable night but at least the threatened rain and hail held off. There was a good turn-out, especially from the private entrants. Thanks all for taking part. Thanks also for Graham and Pater for the timing and Sam for the signs.

  • 21 Apr 21

    Despite the tough course and cool weather there was a good turnout, 8 Wheelers and 3 private entrants. It was good to see several of our less regular time-trialists joining in the "fun". Well done to all of them!

    Some good times on a very cold evening.

  • 18 Oct 20

    It wasn't a bright, sunny autumn morning, - more still, chilly gloom. Never mind, it wasn't wet and there was no head-wind, so I'm sure everyone enjoyed their brisk sprint up the hill. At any rate, several seemed to be panting with enjoyment as they reached the end.

  • A lovely morning with sunshine and apparently light winds, which maybe didn't seem so light to those actually racing.

    Well done everyone but especially Alex with an excellent time which required extremely rapid leg spinning.

    Thanks to Lee for the signs and Graham for the times.

    A warm night but with a strongish breeze on the second half.

  • 26 Jul 20
    Great to see everyone out and well done all riders. Some bringing out some truly classic looking bikes. Although there was a headwind along the A414 it wasn’t until after the foot bridge that is was really felt.

    Wheelers' club 10s make their return!

  • 72" Restricted Gear, F6A/10 course - 1st March

    Nine hardy competitors rode on a sunny but cold and windy morning and all finished. Well done to you all! This event is part of the "Out of Season Best All Rounder" competition (BAR) together with an 81" Restricted Gear 10 and the Hill Climb.
