Tavistock Wheelers is a road cycling club formed over 20 years ago in the West Devon market town. It is a small and friendly club whose clubs rides take place in some of the most idyllic lanes in the country. Whilst its members do compete in the whole range of cycling events; sportives, races, time trials, the emphasise is on enjoyment as well as improving fitness and performance. The club always welcomes new members of all backgrounds.
Why not come and join us Tavistock Wheelers is always looking for new riders of all ages men and women to join the fun of our Sunday. We have riders from 17 to 70. The weekly Sunday club ride is the focal point of Tavistock Wheelers; it provides an ideal opportunity for potential new members to meet riders from the club, learn about club activities and of course to improve your fitness and cycling ability. Most importantly our ethos is that club rides should be enjoyed by all!
We guarantee that new comers will not be dropped or left behind, we want your ride with us to be an enjoyable experience, and to this end we would ask that before you meet us on a Sunday morning, you have the following:
•A road bike, with sufficiently low gears, in good working order.
•Appropriate clothing, for the time of year.
•A simple puncture repair set, including spare tubes.
•Bike handling skills, our club prides itself on its safety record and its harmonious relationships with other West Devon road users!
•Finally, a basic standard of cycling fitness. This will ensure that your first ride with us will be enjoyable, rather than an ordeal. As a rough guide, you should be able to maintain an average speed of 12 mph, for a two-hour period.
