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.

Galloway Day

Riders in other, more urban parts of the UK read national cycling magazines which feature pictures of roads and scenery we have in abundance in South West Scotland. The Galloway Forest is on our doorstep and the weekly Sunday Club Run de-camped there for an Away Day in glorious sunny weather. The 60 mile circuit climbed up to the summit of Darngatroch where the views across to Gatehouse of Fleet were spectacular. Lunch was in Newton Stewart. Rider Martin Shields ordered first an...

FWCC Awards Night

Friday night is awards night, an occasion to celebrate the achievements of Fullarton riders in 2018. The Fulton Trophy recognises the Best All Rounder across a range of time trial distances and this year it went to Allan Duncan. A great achievement. Rider Chris Staples has been telling anyone who will listen that he has retired from competitive cycling: he is this year's 10 Mile and Summer League Champion. An all dominant Catherine Logan swept the board with 10 Mile Champion and... Read more >

Winter League is Underway

The Fullarton Wheeler's Winter League is now in full swing. Competitors arrive at Fullarton Wheeler’s indoor facility, attach their bikes in the stationary trainers, turn up the volume on the sound system, and go all-out to beat each other in virtual competition. This week it is Event 3, a five mile time trial in a virtual Dordogne Valley. Riders are fighting for overall supremacy, supremacy in the women’s event, the handicap category, and a watts per kilogram prize.... Read more >

Cool Runnings

With temperatures dropping bike riding shifts gear. The FWCC Winter League kicks off in the Club's indoor training facility, the cyclo-cross season starts, and the mudguard police come out in force on Sunday Club Runs. Enforcement action was taken against several mudguard-less riders on Sunday with guilty parties being consigned to the back of the twenty strong bunch. No one wants to be spattered in water and mud if they can help it. The fine weather, however, meant the conditio... Read more >

Shrine to Fullarton Wheelers

You know you have made it as a cycling club when someone builds a shrine. Strictly speaking the shrine is for our Honorary President Graeme Obree, but a Fullarton Wheeler's jersey is right in the middle. The shrine is actually an exhibit created by Austin Walsh, the owner and Chief Mechanic of Quay Cycles in Drogheda, Ireland, as part of a small cycling museum. It showcases Obree's brilliant achievements and unusual bikes, and shows just what a contribution the local rider made t... Read more >

Logan in Action at the HSBC Cyclo Cross National Trophy

The second round of the Cyclo Cross National Trophy came to Irvine and expert cyclo-crosser Catherine Logan finished 28th in a field comprised of the country's best. The Irvine Beach Park course is one of the toughest in the calendar with sharp climbs and deep, energy-sapping sand. Local rider Logan put in an excellent performance in supremely tough event. This is the first time the National Trophy event has come to Scotland and more than 600 entrants took part including elite cy... Read more >

Logan Kicks Off Cyclo-Cross Season with Ninth in Class

The third round of the Scottish Cyclo Cross series at Lochore Meadows took place on Sunday with FWCC represented by experienced cyclo-crosser Catherine Logan. Due to the exceptionally warm summer this year the muddy quagmire that is normally Lochore Meadows, with parts of the course virtually unrideable, was this year dry. The women's event is forty minutes plus one lap and the older you are the nearer the back of the field you start. Being highly 'experienced' Catherine was on the ... Read more >

Fullarton Wheelers Mixed Ability Time Trial

The purpose of Fullarton Wheeler's cycle club is to enable people to enjoy cycling to the best of their abilities. What better way than to match different abilities in two person teams and send them off on a short 6.5 mile time trial. This is the not entirely serious FWCC Mixed Ability event which took place on Sunday. Some of the pairings were most peculiar. Legendary lung capacity speedster Gordon Stead was paired with legendary heart and lung transplantee Stevie Donaldson. Comp... Read more >

Tour de Trossacks

A late season favourite is the Tour de Trossacks organised by Glasgow Ivy Cycling Club. It couldn’t be further removed from the normal ruler flat time trial courses held on local by-passes if it tried. Departing from just outside Aberfoyle it's straight up the 240 meter Dukes Pass, right turn along the shore of Loch Venachar, right again along the forest road to Thornhill, then a final right turn past the Lake of Mentieth to the finish. Twenty eight miles of pain where any possibil... Read more >

Fullarton Wheeler's Hill Climb Championship

FWCC are clinging in vain to the idea that it is still summer, with the final event in the 2018 summer league occurring on Sunday: the hill climb. Named in memory of great friend and excellent hill climber Iain O'May, this event is a regular end-of-season fixture. The marker post between the hard charging racing season and the steady autumn and winter club runs. Ideal summer conditions were pouring from the sky above the infamous Fairlie Moor road outside Largs, and a less than balm... Read more >
