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.

Fullarton Wheelers Club 10 Mile Time Trial

The annual Club 10 takes place on the Eglington course, known for being one of the fastest in Scotland and shortly to play host to the CTT National 10 in September. This week Fullarton Wheelers members put down some times for the professionals and top amateurs to beat. First off the line was Gary Arneil, bucking the aerodynamic advantages of a specialist time trial machine by not actually owning one, yet having sufficient power in reserve to wave at a roadside photographer. A time o... Read more >

FWCC Star Rider Donaldson at 2018 British Transplant Games

Coming of Age for Junior Cycling Star Zoe Watters at British Track Championships

FWCC are feeling proud this week after junior rider Zoe Watters competed in the British Youth and Junior Track championships at Wales' Newport Velodrome. This was top class riding from the very best in the UK, which includes Zoe, who is a current double Scottish track champion sponsored by Sprockets Cycles in Kilmarnock. The week's racing saw British records tumbling almost daily and the pressure was definitely on. The forty lap scratch race saw explosive action, with Zoe forcing th... Read more >

Historic Win for Cadge Patterson

More racing success for rider Cadge Patterson who took the winning spot in this week's summer league event with an impressive 36 minutes 53 seconds over the hilly 14 mile Ardrossan Dams course. Whilst not quite in the same league as the thrilling Alpe d'Huez summit finish in the Tour de France, Cadge's victory is still historic. This is the last time club riders will be able to ride the evergreen Ardrossan Dams course. It will shortly become un-raceable when a new set of traffic lig... Read more >

Steve Donaldson on Euregiotour

Euregiotour is a three day ride from Innsbruck to Arco on the Riva Del Garda, organised by the SudTyrol transplantation Sports club to advertise the benefits and advantages of organ transplantation. FWCC's very own heart and lung transplant ambassador made the trip and completed 210 miles and an even more remarkable 12000 feet of climbing, the equivalent of three times up Ben Nevis; on a bike. Day 1 took the riders from Innsbruck to Montagna, a distance of 155km. With the band playi... Read more >

Ninth for Mustachioed FWCC Wonder Boy Cadge Paterson

FWCC rider Cadge Patterson crossed the line in ninth place in this week's TLI Synergy Cycles Summer Criterium race held at Fife Cycle Park in Lochgelly. This is a dedicated 2.4 million pound cycle racing circuit made up of smooth tarmac and tight turns, which makes for thrilling racing. Rider Patterson, well-known locally for sporting a moustache that is part Nigel Mansel, part world war two fighter ace, started well and maintained his position in the leading group throughout the rac...

Weekly Riding Roundup

Summer weather has been amazingly persistent this summer, and the temptation to get out on the bikes has been irresistible. Riders Todd and Ryland were the FWCC ambassadors for US President Donald Trump's visit to nearby Turnbury, at least, the spectacular police and security operation was worth a look. Rider Broadfoot returns from holiday for some plane spotting at Prestwick, where Air Force One is currently parked. Riders Barron, Deans, Walker and Allan joined veteran hard man Geo... Read more >

Fullarton 159

The Tour de France kicked off on Saturday with a monstrous 125 mile long stage. A huge day out for even seasoned Club riders, but not for an intrepid group of Fullarton Wheelers who clocked up an even more impressive 159 miles. This extra-long distance ride was not in aid of the Tour but world circumnavigation record holder Mark Beaumont. Later this summer FWCC will be taking their place alongside Beaumont to ride from Argyll to Aberdeen, via Loch Lomond, the Cairngorms, and Glenshe... Read more >

Zoe Watters: Double Scottish Champion!

FWCC and Sprockets Cycles youth rider Zoe Watters became a double Scottish champion this weekend at the National Track Championships, held at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome. Zoe dominated the forty lap scratch race launching repeated attacks from the back of the bunch to put fatigue into the sprinters who were trying to conserve their energy. A final bunch sprint saw Zoe come from third wheel with one lap to go, snatching gold by half a wheel from Team 22's Abby Stewart, becoming the ne... Read more >

Logan and Graham on fire in Scottish heatwave

Rider Skinner was the fastest FWCC competitor of the day with a magnificent 21:03, just 23 seconds behind the outright... Read more >
