Hill Climb 2016 and Calendar

Club Hill Climb on Sat 1st October 2016




Hill climb will be this coming Saturday, for the first time in the last 6 years the defending champion won't be able to attend. Rumour has it the club has convinced his wife to take him away for his wedding anniversary, or he's scared of the competition from a flying Sean Quinn, Graham Smith or some of the other club members.

Meeting point is at Newmains Cross as usual for 9am, and along to Bonkle Road/Allanton Road for the start at approx 10am. You'll be able to ride the course pre-event and work out a strategy.

Start of the hill climb is fairly flat, with a gradual climb for the first half, then after a left hand turn it's downhill for about 300 metres. Left again, then it's uphill to the finish. It's steeper at the bottom than the top. Do you save energy to go quicker at the end, or all out at the slowest section of the climb?

Club Calendar has also been re-instated on the website after a small mishap. Link via home page or here: http://www.lawwheelers.com/p/law-wheelers-calendar_25.html

Mid Septmber Law Wheelers News

Club News (End of Road Season)


September signals the end of the road season. Boo.

However as we were winding down, The Sean Quinn (as he was known at Flanders) has one last go at his own club 25 mile time trial record and smashed it again.

Sean set a PB and club record of 55:31 at the National 25.
Not to be outdone, Graham (Smithy) Smith also set a fantastic PB of 56:21.
Well done to both, outstanding times!

Sean and Smithy also had an entry to the Fife 2-up TIme Trial, and came away with a prize for 2nd place.

September also signals the start of the Cyclocross season, Yea.

Colin Sergeant was in action at the Battle of Balloch CX race, and had a disastrous start with a puncture after first 1/4 of a lap. Ended up finishing 37th out of about 50 starters.
Followed swiftly by Bute CX, a better showing and finished a strong 9th place.

Breaking News - Time Trial Updates

Hot off the press.


Sean Quin beats the club record for 100 mile time trial. He smashed in a 4:09:15 for the record that's stood for over a decade by around 9 minutes.

Sean would have broken and held all the club records this year at once, had it not been for Smithy, who punched the record before Sean could finish his ride.
