Wellesbourne Wheelers is a cycling club that draws its members from Wellesbourne and the surrounding villages. It supports social group riding of different distances and speeds and currently has about 90 members. We sometimes ride fast but always stop for coffee and cake!

 The club runs group rides from about twenty miles in distance to over fifty. The shorter and slower rides are a great introduction to club riding and remain one of the main entry points into club cycling. These shorter distances are accessible to most people with any sort of hybrid or road bike so if you want to start cycling the lovely quiet lanes of Warwickshire (and sometimes Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire) please come and join one of our rides. Most rides also feature a café stop to allow for chat, coffee and cake.

The 2019 version of the Vitus Dragon Ride was held on the 9th June.  Nine members of the club (that is approaching 10%) took part at various distances on a day of mixed weather conditions.

The legendary race returns to the iconic Town Centre Streets of Warwick this September. Warwick Lanterne Rouge Cycling Club proudly presents a day of cycling fun for all ages and abilities. We have scheduled seven British Cycling affiliated races plus a Community Ride and Kid's Races. This is a free to watch event for all the family so please come along and support the event and your community.

Just a reminder that this coming weekend (26th May) the CFC Sportive takes place starting at Stratford Racecourse.  This event replaces the Sunday Club ride in our events calendar and this is usually one of the best supported local sportives.  There are four distances so there is sure to be something to suit everyone so it would be great to see lots of club shirts there on Sunday.

Thursday 30th May will see the inaugral Ladies ride.  These rides will be held monthly through the summer to encourage ladies to get on their bikes and have a social ride and see what riding with a club is like.
