Dream, Struggle, Ride, Prevail...in the Straiton RR

A strong field of riders descended on the South Ayrshire village of Straiton for the annual fifty five mile road race. It is called 'The Struggle' for a reason. This year the autumnal conditions added to the challenging terrain, tight turns, hump backed bridges and the uphill sprint finish. The tone was set early by the Race Commissair during the rider briefing, describing one section of the course as a series of potholes patched together with some tarmac. The race was on the m...

Feel the fear...but do it anyway

FWCC are incredibly proud of their female competitors who continue to make big strides towards the top level. FWCC/Sprockets rider Natalie Hunter took part in her biggest event yet, the British National Track Championships in Manchester. A velodrome full of screaming school children did little to settle her nerves, especially as she was the only one on the track for the flying 200 and the audience's full attention was focussed on her, and her only. "I started to wind my speed up... Read more >

Sunday Splinter Group

All meteorological indications for Sunday were poor, so the regular Club Run was postponed. Except, that is, for six hardy souls who braved the...er...sunshine and mild temperatures for a 50 mile circuit of the North Ayrshire lanes. The wind was incredibly strong and presented a stiff challenge as it buffeted the riders journeying inland towards Barmill. Road Captain Mikey Allen, normally in charge of mudguard policing operations, was conspicuous by being mudguard-less. Bravely,... Read more >

Season's Greetings

Season's greetings to Fullarton Wheeler's members past, present and future. And what better way to celebrate the festive period than with a delve into the club archives and travel back to 1994 and the ghost of Christmas past. The annual Fullarton Festive 10 was "a fun event [which] attracted 28 competitors. With a cutting wind and blustery snow showers the course proved demanding. Dressed as chickens, ducks, superman, sailors, and of course Santa Claus, motorists were astonished... Read more >

Piece of Cake

Every year FWCC run a festive bake off and pop quiz competition expertly organised by member Neil Colquhoun. Cake is a foodstuff with special meaning for cyclists. Due to the extreme physical exertion demanded by cycle racing there is often an urgent requirement for cake, the more calorific the better. Cyclists are, in fact, cake connoisseurs, able to discern a gateau from a soggy bottomed sponge, and willing to make long and elaborate rides to seek out the best offerings from Ay... Read more >
