Glenmarnock Wheelers Cycling Club is based in the Southside of Glasgow but draws members from far and wide. We participate in a wide range of cycling activities, including track, road and off road cycling and thrive on a warm welcome. As well as the large number of male members, we also have a growing number of female members. Our club run is every Saturday and is split into two groups, fast and slow. Even in the fast group, we have a golden rule that no one gets left behind.
During the summer, we take part in Sportives, time trials, team time trials and road races. We have recently become involved in mountain biking both competively and for fun. We are very lucky to have the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome on our doorstep and have a number of riders accredited to ride on the track. We also enjoy social events including our summer barbeque and Christmas dinner.
One of our founders, John Storrie, sums up our ethos perfectly, "It was an ambition of a lot of kids to own a bike and I let them come along whatever bike they had. Some clubs would have said "Away you go, that's not suitable". But if someone came out with us, as long as they could pedal, I'd let them come. I made allowances. I waited for them at the top of the hill. Others didn't".
