League 2000

League 2000 continues as strong as ever. This week saw the latest round of the current season and we were blessed with lovely weather, though with a tough breeze down the home straight.  Here is a brief photo presentation of the various aspects of League 2000 and at the end is a link to the full photo album of almost 250 action shots. Feel free to download any that you want for your own personal, non-commercial use.

The Skills Test

This was tricky on the night with the wind constantly blowing the cones around keeping organisers and competitors on their toes.

Time Trial

Again, the wind made for difficult TT efforts, the riders getting a flyer down the back straight but then riding into a gale uphill in the finishing straight.

Friendly Atmosphere

On-track rivalries are always put aside and L2K is a great chance for the kids to meet up with their like-minded friends.

Handicapped Races

It’s game-face on for both riders and pusher-offers as the road races begin…

Some racing action…


As always we’re indebted to all helpers, be they club officials, conscripted marshals or helpful parents. None of this would be possible without them. We’re always on the lookout for more willing helpers.

The full album from Monday’s event is here. Feel free to download any photos that you want for your own, non-commercial use.

Club membership renewals for 2018-19

Hi, wheelers. It’s that membership renewal time of year again for 2018-19. I know you’re all so keen to rejoin!

As many of you may already know the membership fee has had to be raised to £15, this is due to increasing costs and a reduction in funds coming in from elsewhere such as the evening series. The membership fee has been £10 since before I joined up in 1992, that’s a long time. I hope you all agree that the Cleveland Wheelers remains great value for money and I hope you have all enjoyed your cycling year with us. Anyhow please find below the best ways to pay your £15 membership. The deadline for renewals is Nov 30th after which point you lose the benefits of Cleveland wheelers membership. So please don’t delay.

The online payment is the preferred option. It’s easier for me, and easier for you. Just follow the link below to renew. Just to note that unfortunately the SES system does not recognise existing members so please just complete all the fields as if you are a new member regardless of how long you have been with the club. The system is just a means of payment, plus we can keep your details updated at the same time (please note there is an SES admin charge of 60p ). I won’t be sending confirmation emails as the SES system sends you a receipt anyway.

Renew by clicking here.

Anyone who wishes to pay by cash I will be available to take payment at club runs and various other Cleveland wheelers venues, or simply stick it through my door with a note.
The renewal fee is £15 adults, under 18s are free. Josef George keeps a record of all our under 18s membership now. I don’t believe Josef needs parents to take any action, although he is after consent forms from any parents who haven’t already completed one. Josef will send you more info on this soon no doubt.

You can also pay by cheque made payable to Cleveland Wheelers and post it through my door.


If you’re posting cheques then please check with me that it has arrived as they have a habit of going missing in the post! I don’t take bank transfers or PayPal as we have the online system in place and things become too complicated.

For anyone who isn’t planning on rejoining the club, please also just let me know. It’s much easier that way.

Please disregard this email if your an over 70s life member, honorary member, have paid recently or you joined the club on or after July 1st of this year in which case you should have already received an email from me asking you to disregard membership reminders. Any questions regarding your membership status then please just let me know.

Thanks, Dave


Don’t forget, tonight is the AGM. 7.30pm at St. Joseph’s church hall on Tanton Road.
