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.

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 >

FWCC Riders Dominate Both Ends of the Doonbank Trofee Cyclocross Race

Lorna Sloan and Dalry-based cyclocross star Scott Alexander McKendrick represented FWCC at the Doonbank Trofee CX race on Sunday. This popular event is well known for its difficult muddy terrain and exciting racing. Fortunately, McKendrick was constantly on hand to prevent breakaways from the back of the racing bunch. Dispensing with his trademark racing shirt, which was possibly washed on too high a setting by his wife judging by the strain on the buttons, rider McKendrick opted... Read more >

Third for FWCC Paracyclist Jamieson at Velodrome Festive Flyer

Rider Jamieson teamed up with Mark McGhee (Bioracer Project GO) to hit the boards of the Sir Chris Hoy velodrome on Saturday in the popular Festive Flyer event. The new pairing is one to watch. Following a few modifications to their borrowed tandem, and despite a slower than hoped for launch out of the gate, they still achieved a new personal fastest time for the kilometre event, flying around the banked turns in 1:30:73. Fellow competitors in the paracycling tandem event include... Read more >

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 >
