June 21st VCL Caleb B Race

This week's Caleb was a spectacular show of fortitude by our very own reigning VCL B series leader, Rich Martin. Wheelers attendance for the B race consisted of Rich, Garth, Dave, Deb, Alec and myself. Things started off with the race in a slow, but organized manor. After the first corner and descen...

Broad Street Omnium

Posting on behalf of the kind folks at Broad Street - an idea that is a really great addition to the VCL racing scene: Broad Street Cycles VCL Omnium! Or should we say ... KOMnium? We've had some weird weather lately, with words like 'rain' and 'Juneuary' being thrown around, so it's time to heat th...

Re: OBB-WHEELERS SATURDAY RIDE REPORT

Today's numbers were lower despite the warm and sunny September weather, so one large group of around 20 rolled out of the shop, gradually growing in size as the ride went along. The pacing out to Sidney was the usual casual social pace, and with a Cross race tomorrow, it seemed logical that would b...

Glad you enjoyed yourself Craig!

The Wheelers has a truly amazing community of sponsors and volunteers. It makes races like Windsor possible.

Thanks for coming out and racing, and being a positive part of the Victoria cycling scene!

Re: 2015 Wheeler Moments

Too many things to narrow it down to just one. Getting a training plan together (thanks to Mick and Geoff for talking over that with me), committing to it, putting in the work and seeing results that I didn't think I would be able to achieve. So rewarding. The experience of riding with both the A an...
