Welcome to Fullarton Wheelers

Fullarton Wheelers Cycling Club is an active club where you will be made most welcome should wish to join us. Fullarton Wheelers organises a range of Club activities including leisurely group rides, some mountain biking and some racing.

On the more social side there is the informal Monday night club nights and the Sunday Club Runs - both of these are ideal if you want to meet some Fullarton Wheelers members and find out more about the club. We also have a Winter Training League which is held indoors at our Club Nights using Tacx Fortious - Virtual Reality Trainers.

Each year Fullarton Wheelers organises a club racing league - league events are open to all members as well as being free. In addition, Fullarton Wheelers also organises a few 'open' races which are run under the auspices of Scottish Cycling.

Winter League Event 4

Another wintry Monday night saw Fullarton Wheelers indoor training facility come alive as members came together for some good hearted competition and fun. This year's Winter League is looking like being the closest fought to date, and also one of the best organised, all credit to members Stephen Cassidy and Jim Seenan. After four events, only seven points separate the top six riders in the scratch competition with Derek Skinner maintaining a slim lead and Catherine Logan holding onto... Read more >

FWCC Tandem Pair Second at the Scottish National Madison Championship

Tandem duo Fraser Maitland and Natalie Jamison were in action this weekend at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome. They were taking part in the Scottish National Madison Championship, consisting of a flying 200m race and a 1 kilometre time trial. The pair were using a Scottish cycling tandem which was slightly different to the machine the pair we were used to, but it did not stop them. In the Flying 200m race Fraser and Natalie achieved a new personal best of 13.73 seconds. They were both ... Read more >

FWCC Youth Night

Fullarton Wheelers has an active youth section with a regular youth-and-parent night at the indoor training facility. On Wednesday the Fullarton 'Young Guns' duly arrived for a shot on the new turbo trainers, with the youngsters trying out the five mile course used for the following day's adult winter league event. FWCC Youth Section riders Ben, Karsyn, Rosie, Isla and Madison are shown here working hard on the trainers!... Read more >

Weekend Riding

The winter season is well and truly upon us, and with it, a slightly more flexible approach to winter riding. On Saturday, in a break from the normal Largs coastal run, the group of six FWCC riders headed inland…for breakfast. The destination was the Tribeca Cafe in Giffnock, and to get there required a steady run to Stewarton then onwards to Newton Mearns. Climbing out of Newton Mearns after a five egg omellete is an achievement, but the gradient on the old A77 route back to t... Read more >

Plean Cyclocross Race

The Fullarton Wheelers' cyclocross cavalcade rolled on this week to the Stirling hamlet of Plean, somewhat depleated this week with only veteran Scott McKendrick making the journey east. The cavalcade of one arrived to find a section of the course closed due to ice, but with an extra muddy climb thrown in to give a full 40 minutes of racing. It really was a day for the hardcore. Following last week's stunning last place there was no hesitation in selecting the same singlespeed racin... Read more >

Sunday Club Run

Eleven riders turned up for the regular Sunday club run, meeting as ever outside Irvine's Portal at 09:30. The weather conditions were less than optimum, with a bitterly cold wind and an early soaking courtesy of a freezing rain shower. Despite the mudguard police being in attendance, the wet salt covered roads turned all the clean bikes, and riders, into something reminiscent of the legendary Paris Roubaix cycle race. It was grim. Heading South to Loans, then onwards past HMS Gann... Read more >

Lochore Cyclocross Race

The Fullarton CX-ers have been in action again. Stalwarts Catherine Logan and Scott McKendrick flew the FWCC flag at last weekend's Lochore Cyclocross Race in Fife. The hotly contested women's race took place in bone chilling four degree temperatures. Catherine put in a great ride coming home in the top 33, ahead of some key rivals. Even better, she was 11th placed Vet Female, and 1st female rider in the Ayrshire clubs competition. Meanwhile, in the Vet 40 race, Scott McKendrick r... Read more >

Youth Section Cycling Techniques and Skills Session

Fullarton Wheelers Youth Section members attended a cycling techniques and skills session in Irvine on Sunday afternoon. Scottish Cycling Coach Martha Hillard took the ten youngsters, aged from 9 to 14, through a range of exercises designed to help them develop their bike handling skills. The session specifically concentrated on their pedalling and braking technique and finished off with some fun events including a 'slow' race, to see who could cover a set distance most slowly while ...

Fullarton Wheelers Winter League: Event 3

The Winter League events are coming thick and fast, courtesy of the slick organisation of club members Jim Seenan and Stephen Cassidy. This week it was Event 3, which took place over a five mile virtual road course in the picturesque Dordogne region of France. Stocky powerhouse John Todd was the overall winner. The fastest female was Catherine Logan. To say this year's winter league is hotly contested is an understatement. For the third time in a row Derek Skinner, the FWCC Club C... Read more >

Sunday Club Run

Twelve riders arrived for the weekly Sunday Club Run, which as ever departed from Irvine Cross at 09:30. It was a bright but bitterly cold day, with plenty of icy patches on the roads. Nonetheless, new member Joe Boyle duly arrived in shorts, assuring everyone that he didn't really feel the cold. Heading towards Dreghorn was akin to the climate apocalypse scene out of the film Day After Tomorrow. The temperature dropped and dropped, and with it the complaints got louder and louder....
