About the Club

Worksop Wheelers Cycling Club was formed in October 2013 by a group of local riders who felt that there was enough interest in road cycling to form a club. From trash talk among friends the seeds were sown to base a cycling club in Worksop to encourage locals to come out and ride for fun and fitness.

Our plan was to provide a club run by its members for its members of whatever level and ability who wanted to join us. Many of us were intimidated at the thought of joining some of the locally established clubs. We wanted to offer support to new riders while at the same time having a place for more experienced riders who wanted some mates to ride with.

And Worksop Wheelers was born! From the initial 15 members we have gone from strength to strength and now have well over 90 members of differing ages and abilities.

We have a regular club ride, weather permitting, leaving most Sunday's at 08:30 We do try and plan the routes and these are usually posted on our Facebook page and we never knowingly leave a rider behind. 

Throughout the year we are run an alternative ride for beginners or for people coming back to road riding - See Events page for more details. These rides are also weather permitting.

Other rides through the week are organised by members and posted, usually on our member's Facebook page for people to turn up and ride when it fits in.
