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.
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.
