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.

FWCC Follow the Wheel of Ultra-Endurance Cyclist Mark Beaumont from Campbeltown to Aberdeen in Aid of the STV Children’s

There are residents of the Kintyre Peninsula who have never been to Aberdeen. A car journey from Campbeltown to Aberdeen would be a major undertaking. Tackling the 240 mile journey by bike is of another order entirely. This was the route ultra-endurance cyclist Mark Beaumont followed when training for his round the world cycling record, and he returned on Sunday with seventy other riders to re-enact the ride in aid of the STV Children’s Appeal. The first and by far the most si... Read more >

We Live (Ride?) in a Material World

Sunday runs these past couple of weeks have been somewhat depleted due to end of season racing in Bute and this week's mega endurance ride to Aberdeen. Nonetheless, four hardy stalwarts arrived at Irvine Cross at 09:30 to ensure the eternal flame of Sunday cycling never gets extinguished. The group wound their way through Kilwinning for a look at the new Dalry bypass, onwards past the DSM factory, then out into some countryside proper with a climb up the Hilly Brae. Cresting the sum... Read more >

On Form Gordon Graham Powers Uphill into the Wind

Commonwealth Games cycling star Harry Tanfield put in a masterful performance over the painfully hilly ten mile Rothesay Weekend time trial, putting over 50 seconds into second placed Chris Smart with a time of 21:04. Gordon Graham, however, rounds off an amazing season by leading out the FWCC team by placing 18th in a highly competitive event in a time of 25:30, closely followed by Derek Skinner in 19th (25:39) and Alan Duncan in 20th (25:42). On a difficult uphill course, with stro... Read more >

Time Trial Star Skinner Surprises in Bute Road Race

Sunday saw the exciting Rothesay Cycling Festival road race take place over the hilly twenty mile Bute Island Circuit. Expert time trialist Derek Skinner somehow found himself in the (very) loosely titled novice road race. With corners being tackled like the professionals, and athleticism one would not normally see this side of the Vuelta d'Espana, the so-called 'novices' roared around the island for a thrilling finish in Rothesay. Nobody was more surprised than rider Skinner to ach... Read more >

Retro riders McKendrick and Walker Stun in Two-Up Time Trial

Not since Eddie Mercx has a victory been so total, so complete, and so crushing as that witnessed by the crowds in Rothesay on Saturday when Fullarton's star retro pairing of McKendrick and Walker dominated their category. They not only achieved outright victory in the highly competitive retro bike classification (there was only one other competitor), but they took the scalp of Commonwealth Games champion Harry Tanfield. It was as if he was walking in the opposite direction with a pu... Read more >

Sean Barron battles the Serpentine Hill Climb

The Bute Cycling Festival, otherwise known as the Rothesay Weekend, has been running since the 1940's and the packed racing itinerary was as exciting as ever. Kicking off with the fearsome hill climb event up the amphitheatre-like Serpentine, this is a 10% gradient featuring no fewer than 13 switch back turns. It makes for exciting racing. Sean Barron flew up the climb only for a rider coming down the hill to collide with him. A second attempt saw him still achieve a 15th place tim... Read more >

Fullarton Wheelers Bring the Georgetown Cup Back to Ayrshire

The Georgetown Cup is the final event in a summer-long time trial competition held in Inchinnan, Glasgow. It is organised by ACC Velopreda with all proceeds going to the multiple sclerosis charity MS Scotland. It is a terrific event which attracts over 200 riders, eager to round off the season with a flat-out time trial effort over the popular seven mile Georgetown TT course to Houston and back. All the major cycle clubs from the area were there, including three times winners Fullar... Read more >

Summer League Event 7

You know it is a tough course when marshals outnumber competitors and so it was with the penultimate FWCC summer league event of 2018. A hilly time trial that started at the foot of the hill outside Gatehead near Kilmarnock, climbed again out of the village of Earlston, up to Symington via the Secretary of State climb, followed by an ascent around the back of Corraith, culminating with a summit finish on the top of Dundonald Hill. Eight miles and over 1000 feet of climbing, no wonder... Read more >

Scottish Records Tumble in National Time Trial Championship Co-Hosted by Fullarton Wheelers

Commonwealth Games silver medallist and local fast man John Archibald (Ribble RT) broke the Scottish ten mile record in Irvine on Sunday with a blistering time of 18 minutes 18 seconds. Archibald also beat current British record holder, Giro d'Italia finisher, and all round time trial superstar Marcin Bialoblocki (Team Nopinz) into second place. Four other records tumbled in the weekend's CTT National 10 Mile Time Trial Championship which was held on the local Fullarton Wheelers' cou... Read more >

Barassie to Berwick

FWCC mile munchers Sykes, McCall, Watters, Kean, Todd, Skinner, Ryland, Gass and Baron hit the 150 mark with a ride from Barassie to Berwick this week. A ride that literally no one has ever attempted previously (because why would you?) it does have a place in the training plan for round the world cyclist Mark Beaumont's upcoming 240 charity challenge. The intrepid team were supported by driver Hannah in a transit mini-bus and trailer combo as they threaded their way from coast to coa... Read more >
