We're an expanding club based in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire. The club offers many opportunities and services to the cycling community, and Welwyn Wheelers CC members participate in all aspects of cycle sport and leisure. You'll find plenty of information here about the club and what we do. If you'd like to get involved, or just find out a little more, don't hesitate to get in touch - we'd be pleased to hear from you.
The club is delighted to see that Beth Hayward won the 2014 National Women's Junior Road Race Championship over the weekend. Beth started her cycling career with the club and is now a Second Claim member. She can often be found riding our club events. Our best wishes and congratulations for a very impressive win.

The Youth Cyclesport website has asked Richard Maynard to run a live Facebook Q&A session for Assen newbies from 8pm on Tuesday to help prepare for Assen week (the European Junior Cycling Tour).
Richard Maynard and his son Josh & daughter Rebecca will be ready to answer your questions. They've tackled Assen several times before and are happy to share their experience to help first-time visitors.
So if you or your kids have any questions about the racing itself, travel, accommodation, registration, equipment, gear restrictions, categories, etc. just fire away next Tuesday evening.
Richard has also written articles on Assen for Youth Cyclesport. These are the links if you are interested:

Riders attending the Saturday track developer sessions should note that the purpose behind registration for the session is so that sufficient coaching resource can be allocated to the sessions. As such any rider who registers after 5pm on the Friday will be unable to ride in the next days session. Any riders who turn up on spec without registering will also not be able to ride.
Hire bikes are subject to availability and are issued on a first-come-first-served basis. Registering does not guarantee that a hire bike will be available.
With the Derny Fest just around the corner, I would like to offer Derny training to Junior and Senior riders. I am looking for around 12+ riders to commit to each Thursday night 8:00pm til 10pm in blocks of 4 weeks. Welwyn Riders will be given first opportunity to sign up, thereafter I will open it up to other teams/clubs to make up the numbers.
The session will be based upon providing 2 x 10 mile efforts directly behind the derny. The idea being that you ride 10 miles in the 1st session, have a 40 minute rest/rollers whilst the other riders do their efforts then repeat another 10 mile paced effort in the second session as a 4 up race scenario.
The cost of the track and dernies will be divided up between the number of riders. I don’t have the exact cost yet but estimate it will be in the region of £25 for the 4 sessions – depending upon the number of riders. You will need to pay up front and sign up for all 4 sessions.
If this is of interest to you please contact me to enquire. It will only go ahead if I get 12+ riders and can convince 4 pacers to help out.
Please register your interest and I will contact once the number are sufficient.

Club member Rebecca Maynard has been selected to be a National Youth Representative and sit on British Cycling’s National Youth Forum. This opportunity has been set up to help develop the opportunities for young people across our sport whilst also supporting a number of key Young Leaders to develop their own skills and by provide experiences to learn about developing sport.
Just to remind you that we don't run any training sessions on Bank Holidays and so there will be no Track League Training on Good Friday or Open Track session on Easter Monday.
Saturdays (April 19) track sessions will take place as normal.
