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.
Eastern Region are running a series of Contenders Cyclo-Cross training sessions this season. These sessions are designed for our best youth riders in the region to prepare them for national level competition. They are intensive training sessions that enable riders to work with others of a similar standard and identify weaknesses that can be worked on in club sessions.
Riders are expected to be racing Cyclo-Cross regularly and have their own Cyclo-Cross bike. This year we are taking Youth aged riders (Under 14's and Under 16’s) and first year juniors.
There will be a limit of 20 riders per session so you will need book with me – just email to book on.
The dates are:
Sun 5th October Welwyn
Sat 1st November Colchester
Sat 6th December Hog Hill (TBC)
Sat 20th December Ipswich
The sessions usually take 2–3 hours during a morning. Charges will vary depending on the venue but are usually less than £5.
Club coaches are welcome to watch or assist – please let me know if you want to come.
Go-Ride Coach - Eastern
Welwyn Wheelers is organising round 5 of the Eastern Cyclo-cross League on Saturday October 11.
Because of this there will be no organised sessions running at Gosling Sports Park on that day. Normal service will resume on the following week.

With the women's track cycling sessions now officially finished, it seems a shame for this great project to end now. With this in mind, I will be running a track competition this Saturday from 12-2 pm. This will be open to any rider who has taken part in any of the women's track coaching sessions.
The racing will follow an Omnium format with a scratch race, a time trial and a handicap race. We may do some more if time allows. All for just £3!
I would also like to have a chat afterwards about future sessions or group rides. It's up to you what you want to do so get your thinking caps on!
I do not have everyone's email so please pass on if you think I missed someone.
Hope to see you on Saturday.
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).

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.
