SSSCCRRL postponement

With the continued uncertainty surrounding the Covid19 virus as to when life will return back to some sense of normality, and the recent events being cancelled by BC, BMCR, SCC until at least the end of April 2020 we thought it sensible to issue the following statement.

The SSSCCRRL take the safety of riders, officials and everybody involved as paramount when organising and running events. We have to consider the wider community and the pull on already stretched resources when making decisions as to whether we run races.  

Official Club Announcement 18/3/2020

As everyone knows, events are continually being cancelled due to COVID-19.
From today because of risk and uncertainty all Wolverhampton Wheelers events regardless of Coaching, Track, Road or social club events are now officially cancelled until further notice.
We are aware some riders may meet up for rides away from the club but they will not be classed as official club rides.
