Summer Membership Sale!

Times are hard and half the year has already gone.

For the first time, we present the Weston Wheelers Summer Sale.

It is not unusual for a membership discount to be given for joiners in the last couple of months of any year, but this year we're going big!

Adult membership now only £7.50 and Seniors (60+) only £5.

Normal renewal on 1st of January.

Contact the Secretary for details.

Weekend rides – as usual

The C2C2C ride is coming up on Saturday.


However, not everyone is going to fancy it, even with the promise of fish and chips on the Lyme Regis seafront.


So, I plan to put on the usual Saturday and Sunday rides for anyone who want a less arduous ride.

Route details in a couple of days........

Wednesday Evening Ride: 15th June 2022

All the weather forecasters are promising beautiful conditions this Wednesday. So why not get that bike out and give yourself the midweek treat of a summers evening ride? With the C2C2C ride on Saturday, we’ve chosen a fairly easy route this week. The main feature is Cleeve hill, a pleasant and steady climb up through Kings Wood.
Once again it’s an open ride, so all are welcome. See you outside Priory School at 18:00

Wednesday Evening Ride: 8th June 2022

A long descent from Longbottom up on the Mendips, pretty much all the way back to Sandford is the main feature of this week’s ride – so why not come along and give those little springs in your freehub a workout!  I’m sure there must be a climb in there somewhere, but seriously, these are the Mendips not the Alps – how hard can it be?

Once more it’s an open ride this week, so everyone’s welcome. See you outside Priory School at 18:00

Saturday Club Ride ?

I'm still consulting the various weather outlets for Saturday's weather.

It doesn't seem too promising at the moment.

I will post something by Friday when the accuracy of the forecast is hopefully better. Although I think sunny and windless is unlikely.

Wednesday Evening Ride: 1st June 2022

After a couple of easier weeks, I’ve been inundated with requests for something a bit tastier ( honest! ). So this weeks route includes a feature climb: Nash Hill!!

Actually, it’s not that bad – a bit steep, but not for long, and the rest of the route is pretty flat.

It’s an open ride, which means everyone's welcome to come along – so hopefully see you outside Priory school at 18:00
