Monday 20:00 to 21:30 Adult developer session (come to this first if you have not ridden with us before. We do a safety briefing, explain all the exercises and have different ability groups.

Wednesday 19:00 to 21:00 race training using road bikes in the winter. This is for experienced riders only and invited under 16 and under 14 youth riders with club coaches approvals. Please come to the Friday session for induction before attending the Wednesday if you have not been before. No under 12's. Wednesdays are a hard training session overseen by the club coaches.

Track bike training starts April 8th 2013. Track League from May to early September (check Wheelers and British Cycling website for dates).
Friday 18:30 to 20:00 Youth session. Aimed more at the younger rider using road bikes overseen by club coaches.

The Wheelers have worked hard to build up training and coaching sessions at Aldersley 3 times per week all through the year. We have invested heavily in time and money to build up the qualifications and skills of our volunteer coaching staff. We have grown the membership to over 350 and have brought many families into riding, coaching and volunteering in the many jobs that are required in a big club. We have organising our sessions and our pricing to deliver real benefit to all our members. Membership of the Wheelers is really good value at £20 for a family, £8 for a youth and £15 for a senior member. Contact Gordon Jones Membership secretary for more details or any other Club official.

Visits to Other Tracks – The Wheelers regularly hire the indoor velodrome at Manchester for club sessions, coaching and derny (motorcycle pacing) training. These sessions are always well supported and are extremely exhilarating - "One hell of a buzz" as they say! Please check the calendar and forum for details.
