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.

Weekly Riding Roundup

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 >

Summer League Event 4

In a break from tradition the Club's annual Summer League is taking place in actual summer weather. With the mercury touching 21 degrees the conditions were perfect for Event 4: a twenty five mile individual time trial. Taking place this year over a compact and rather complex circuit, no one got lost and four riders beat the all-important one hour barrier. The overall winner was once again Gordon Graham in a blistering 57 minutes one second, beating Chris Staples into second place b... Read more >

Scorchio!

Perfect cycling weather means the mileages have been piling on, with FWCC members out and about in the sunshine. Adventures this week include sunburn climbing the infamous 'Talla Wall' in the Borders, rider Del Young getting stung on the head by a bee that got stuck in his helmet, melting tarmac, and an unprecedented early start to the regular Sunday Club Run to avoid the hottest part of the day. Large numbers of riders have been turning up for the regular Monday evening club ride, t... Read more >
