About Retford and Distict Wheelers
Retford and District Wheelers Cycling Club has been established in its present form since 1986, although historically there has been a local club in Retford circa early 1900's.
The Club is locally based in Retford and welcomes cyclists from all categories and all age groups, although cyclists under the age of 16 require the supervision of an appropriate parent or guardian during club rides.
The Club Committee regularly meets every first Monday in each month at 7:30pm at the Run Runner Public House, and all members and those interested in cycling or joining a local club are welcome. This is generally an informal meeting where issues of the Club are discussed and agreed with members contributing.
The Club is friendly and informal, and members are supported and encouraged to do whatever activity they choose. This includes competitions in Time Trials, Road Racing, Mountain Biking, and Track Racing at a National and Local level. Other members enjoy cycling as a way to keep fit, or participating in Charity rides, Sportive Events, and Long Distance Events. In fact, the wealth of knowledge within the Club is vast!
The membership fees at this time are;
- Individual - £10
- Junior - £5
- Second Claim - 35.
- Family - £16
The Club has an annual 5 mile Time Trial (a great informal event) that precedes the Christmas Dinner and Trophy Presentation, held for the past few years at Markham Moor Inn.
The Club also has for the past two years held a Hill Climb at Gringley on the Hill, and there after a downhill free wheel competition. Social events are also arranged throughout the year for families.
There are weekly reports in the Retford Times and in the Worksop Guardian. The Club is continuing to look for new members.
