Berwick Wheelers Cycling Club is based around Berwick-upon-Tweed in Northumberland on the England-Scotland Borders and is associated with British Cycling, Scottish Cycling, Cycling Time Trials Scotland, and the Scottish Veterans Time Trial Association.
Membership is drawn from both sides of the border and varies from occasional social riders to those with more competitive aims. For example our own Club road time trials are held on the quiet roads in Berwickshire and are ideal for safely introducing inexperienced or younger riders to the sport but still provides a challenge for the faster ones. For those who like hills, there are plenty of short, stiff, climbs to be tackled in the nearby Lammermuirs and Cheviots hills.
As well as the social side of cycling, for a small club, Berwick Wheelers punches well above its weight with a fine record in championship events, having won several individual and team medals as well as breaking team records in time trial events. The club also has a good rating on the road racing scene with members achieving podium positions in numerous events across the country. Indeed, members compete in other 'open' competitive cycling events throughout England and Scotland during the year, and also take on Mountain Biking, Cyclocross and Triathlons for example. The club also hosts an 'open' road race in the spring and a time trial event in the summer.
If you are thinking of starting, or already have a background in cycling why not get in contact, take a look at our Facebook pages, or Twitter. Soon, there will be a link here to a short introduction if you are (like all of us were) a novice at this sort of thing. Annual membership fee for the current season is £16.
