Sad News

We’ve just been given the sad news that Phyllis Urwin, one of the founder members of Cleveland Wheelers, has died.

We don’t know any further details at the moment.



We have an agreement with Zwift to run a race series. Initially it will be a four week trial starting in November and we’re making those four weeks into a tournament.

If we get a good turn out Zwift will consider making it a regular event.

Individuals and riders from all clubs are welcome to take part, please pass on the news and let’s try get as many involved as possible.

Interested in taking part? Join the Facebook group and take a shufty at the race manual.

See you in the pens!

CWCC Winter Training

Winter Training Sessions at MSV

Just a reminder that the Winter Training Sessions are starting on Monday, 4th October at Middlesbrough Sports Village (MSV) and will run weekly until Monday, 13 December.

These sessions are open to anyone over the age of 18 although we will be inviting some of our youngsters along to show us how it’s done.

The track is booked from 19:30 to 20:30 on Monday evenings. Cost is £4 per rider. You need a bike, helmet and suitable clothing for the weather conditions.

Please come straight to the hut at the cycle track (not the velodrome) for 7:20 to sign on and pay. You do not have to report to MSV reception as we handle the entry fee and paperwork etc. Remember not to ride your bike from your car to the circuit, please walk.

These sessions are of mixed ability riders, from those who want an hour of max heart rate to those who want to improve bike handling and group riding skills.

If you have never been to the cycle circuit before, it is a 1km traffic free circuit which is mainly flat  but it can feel very hilly after a while. It has floodlights and is ideal for dark winter evenings where you can happily ride without worrying about traffic and being seen etc.

For more information, see the dropdown under the coaching tab on our website and our social media pages.
