For those competing in the Club Championships this year the following Open events are being used as the counting events:
- 22/06/2019 East Lancs RC Open 25 (J2/9) – Enter
- 20/07/2019 Congleton CC Open 50 (J4/9) – Enter
As usual, unlike the Club 10s these events need to be entered around 10 days in advance via CTT. Points will be awarded towards the Club Championships for these events just like the Club 10s.
The Club 10s are now under way with our first event for marshalling this coming Monday. As always if you are able to help with marshalling one of the events please let us know.

Right you lucky lot, here’s a sneak preview of your brand new club kit!
Bioracer are currently collecting a full set of size samples for us and will send them over very soon. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for a social being set up at The Wharf as soon as we have them, for people to come and try samples on.
In the meantime ogle away at these!
The Club Track Championships are taking place this year on Sat 13th April at Manchester Velodrome, consisting of 5 events: a scratch race, points race, kilo, devil and unknown distance. Other clubs are welcome to enter and British Cycling points are available, but only first claim Wheelers will count towards the championship.
Thanks to Mike Atkinson for organizing this. Last year was close fought between Jerry, Jack and Mike and it should be another great event!
Enter here – And if you don’t fancy racing, come down and watch!
From the 1st March, our membership fees for seniors and families will see a small increase by £10. The price for juniors remains at £10. Our membership fees for seniors have been at £20 since the early 1990’s so we hope a £10 increase is reasonable.
