Why don’t you join us !?

Wetherby Wheelers are a friendly and sociable club that offers a wide range of experiences on your bike. One of our strengths is our mid-week daytime rides and with our Saturday and Sunday rides, we believe we have a full menu of varied rides that will meet all your needs for group riding. For those of you who are more experienced, we also offer time trialling, competing in local leagues.

With our experienced ride leaders, we believe we exploit to the full our privileged and unique location here in Wetherby. You can be sure of experiencing varied routes as we tour the country lanes of Yorkshire’s Dales, Wolds, North York Moors, and Vale of York! We have a strict policy that no one will be left behind so rest assured you will enjoy the camaraderie of group cycling.

We operate a try-before-you-buy policy, so if you want to make sure it’s what you want, target a ride and then go for it. For those less experienced riders, we suggest you try our Saturday rides. These are only half-day rides focused more on the social side first. On all our official rides the obligatory café stop is essential.

If you want to give it a go, just turn up and introduce yourself to someone in Wetherby Red!

The official club rides are on Saturday, Sunday, and Thursday. We do have other rides but these are more informal. Further details on all our rides can be found in the Club Rides section and information on how to join can be found on the Join Us page.

Highway Code Myths and Misinformation

Recent changes to the Highway Code have provoked some misinformation and lazy misinterpretation of the new rules. Cycling UK have a measured and useful guide to what the changes actually are and how they affect cyclists, horse riders and pedestrians. Well worth a read.

A useful resource for winter riding: North Yorkshire Council Gritting Road Gritting Information

Thanks Keith 👍

There is a searchable useful map of cycling cafes with addresses, opening times and brief reviews at CyclingMaps.net. The website is handy for route planning and there is also an (Android) app available which is easier for searching while on the road.

There is also a Facebook page where you can search and suggest additions or amendments 😀
