Membership to the Weston Wheelers is currently open. Members of the club have access to our Facebook group, where club rides and general discussions take place and receive regular email updates on club activities. Paid up members are able to take part in our competitions and challenges held through the riding season. These range from mid to long distance point-to-point time trials, local time trial events, hill climbs and sprints. This year we are also supporting two local sportive events; The Great Weston Ride, and the Somerset 100. We will be riding these events as a club, so anyone nervous about taking part in mass cycling events will have club support. Club rides are arranged every Sunday morning; leaving Priory School at 9am and, late Spring onwards, we usually have a shorter Wednesday evening ride; departure point generally published on Facebook. Non-members are welcome to ride with us and test the water. Subscriptions this year are; Adult (18 - 60) : £15, Junior (under 18) : £5, Family : £20, Senior (over 60) £7:50, Upgrade Adult to Family : £5. Second Claim membership : £5
Just like to know if you are taking new members, been cycling just around a year and would be nice to join a cycling group!!!
We’d be glad to have you. Fill in the form and one of the club officers will be in touch.
I’ve only been cycling about a month or so and the furtherest I’ve cycled is 13 miles at a average of 14.7mph. I understand that currently I’m not likely to be good enough to join but I was wondering whether there was a minimum distance/speed that I could aim for before I try and join?
Thanks for your enquiry. As from this Sunday the club are introducing a beginners/warm up route specifically designed to welcome new members. This will be a 10-15 mile route around Weston and leaves at 9 am from Priory school and will finish at the Grand Pier. It would be great to have you along.
We are always delighted to welcome cyclists to the North Curry Coffee Shop! However it is very small and we are a volunteer staff so we do find ourselves overwhelmed by numbers on occasions! Please can I ask that if you intend to visit in groups of 10 or more that you notify us in advance? Thank you! Liz Gibbs
Thanks for the heads up of course we will let you know.
Hello I’ve been riding on and off for a year now and my longest ride is just under 30 miles . Are you taking new members ? The only thing is I work shifts and would only be available 3 Sundays out of 6 would this affect me joining your club ?
No problem at all with distance or frequency of rides. We are an informal friendly club and you are welcome to join us as often as you like. Just fill out the joining form and copy and paste the paypal link if you fancy joining.
Hope to see you on a ride soon.
I’m looking for a bike club for my 10-year-old son. He is keen on cycling but I can’t really go with him. I haven’t found any bike club for kids in the area. Can you let me know if you know about something that might be suitable?
Due to my spinal fractures I am sadly not able to join you but I live in the area and have a carbon scot cr1 54cm for sale indoor stored and dry miles onky and a willier ali 54cm road bike that someone may like to buy…
Hope physio and pilates can give me strength to join wheelers in the future….
if you want a new to you nice bike to whizz up and down
Thanks for your interest in the Wheeler’s and behalf of all our members wish you a full and speedy recovery.
I’ve recently moved to the Blagdon area, and am looking for a cycling club in the area. Are you currently accepting new members? I’ve not been a member of a club before, but am looking for some company to explore new routes and to motivate me to get out on the bike on sunday mornings!
Thanks for your enquiry.
You are welcome to join us for a ride we are a friendly bunch and are always accepting new members. We leave from Priory School Worle at 9 am Sunday. Keep an eye on the website for the downloadable route.
Hope to see you soon.
Hi, I’m visiting from Perth and keen to join a club ride. Do you meet this sunday, and can I tag along?
We meet up at 9am on Sundays, outside Priory School, Worle. You would be welcome to join us, although the route isn’t decided yet, but will be posted in the News Section on the website.
I moved to this area two years ago (from the New Forest) and have taken early retirement (now 63). I believe that I’m reasonably fit and have cycled all my life. However, I had an ankle fusion 9 months ago but now seem to be cycling without discomfort. I’m keen to join the club to meet new friends but obviously don’t want to be a hinderance to others. Am I eligible to join?
There shouldn’t be a problem John. I will email you.
I’ve been looking for a cycling club, going out on your own not only gets boring but it also takes alot of motivation lol
I took up cycling as I can no longer run, so low impact is the way forward for me … the longest ride I’ve done is 25miles, that was on a hybrid, however I have since purchased a road bike … which believe me I’m slowly getting use to it lol
What do I wanna get out of this you may ask ???
well I like to meet new people for starters, hopefully improve my cycling by that learning from you guys, I like to have a laugh
I have ran numerous 10ks so now I’m looking at Weston ride etc so hopefully joining your group will spur me on and into the right direction
Please advise me if I can pop along for a spin at some point please
Sorry I rabbited on
You would be welcome to come out with us Mike – I will email you.
Is the club active?
I’ve moved to West Wick and look to ramp up my cycling interest. Only got an MTB at the moment but looking to purchase a road bike very soon.
The club’s group activities are currently suspended due to the pandemic.
When we are likely to return to normal is anyone’s guess.
As individuals, we are trying to keep our fitness in various ways, but at a very much lower level than the weather would have currently allowed.
Any change in our organised activities will be posted on the website and our public Facebook page.
Do you have to have a top of the range bike as all I have is a carrera road bike
Not at all. Quite a few club members started with a Halfords bike.
Because it is likely to be heavier than a more expensive bike, it’s probably harder work up hills, but you’ll still get there.
I’m relatively new to cycling and the Weston area, so I am looking to get some more experience and meet some new people. I am currently cycling at about 13 mph over 30ish miles on a road bike. Do you have any suitable rides that I could come along and join in on?
Our Saturday morning ride would be good for you.
Typically it will be around 30 miles, not too hilly, and there is no minimum speed expected.
Look out for announcements in the News section of the website front page.

I was knocked off my bike a few weeks back, and have lost confidence riding on the road. Would it be possible to join a Saturday club ride, with a view to joining the club if I find I get on ok with it? I really don’t want to do any rides alone at the moment, and having met Cris, David, and Sandra on the GWR and GER, Weston Wheelers does seem to be a very good club to join.
Feel free to join us on Saturday.

Hello im luke interested in joining just wondering do i need a road bike, and do i need to have the club kit?
It would be better to have a road bike. Some members do use hybrid’s but you’ll be at a bit of a weight disadvantage and might struggle to keep up.
But club kit is voluntary.
