Wolverhampton Wheelers dedicates 2012 reliability trials to Cancer Research UK


The Wolverhampton Wheelers Cycling Club present three reliability rides in support of Cancer Research UK.

The club has recently lost a number of members to the disease in its various forms, prompting the Wheelers to dedicate its early season rides to raising money for the charity.

Each ride is designed as a challenge for cyclists of differing ability, along well established routes of varying difficulty. These rides are NOT races and there's a minimum age limit of 12 years. Participants are responsible for their own safety, must adhere to the rules of the road and be self-sufficient in completing the course.

All rides start from the Hollybush P.H.,

Seisdon Road, Ebstree, Near W’ton.

8.45am “Easy” Group
