2013 Season

The Wheelers will host the Scottish 25 mile Time Trial Championship on 9th June 2013 see above.

The AB25/8 [A90] course has hosted the Championship "25" on two previous occasions.

Enquiries should be made to event organiser John Allan

2013 will see the inaugural Petrex Trophy Road Race organised as part of the Aberdeen District mid-week road race series on 11th July 2013. The race will also be the Aberdeen District road race Championship. The Petrex Trophy will be a "team" trophy comprising of the best finishing team [of three riders ~ differing categories]

The club's mid week series, with variations, will be held again this year. These nights are designed for training, with a wee competitive edge. No problem if you want to come along and try us ~~ bring a helmet [and your bike] :-) !! Events are included in our District Calendar section and listed "members and guests". Pinarellos, Parlees, Colnagos and such stuff are definitely not required!! Contact ~ Bob Gibson

Other popular events organised by the Wheelers will be Colin's Classified "10" and the annual Aberdeen District Hill Climb both on the same September weekend.

This year the club also takes on the District Time Trial Championship [Circuit] as the last open time trial of the local season.

Aberdeen District will also play host to Scottish Road Race Championships [Men and Ladies] ~~ Organiser ~ Phil Allan [Granite City RT]. Phil will obviously be seeking support. Should be a bumper year for local bike racing.

Also locally Ythan CC have developed excellent racing for Youth [under 16yrs] in their Cyclefest Races and Ellon Crits.

This year's Dick Longadragan RR fell foul of roadworks and persistent snow, despite having a reserve course up our sleeve. Organiser Bob Cowie was understandbly upset having attracted a cracker of a field with five Elites all signed up ~~ "Best laid plans o' mice and men etc."
