Wheelers Centenary 2023

So muster up for 100 years

2023 is the centenary year of Southend Wheelers Cycling Club. This is a notice that appeared in the Southend Standard in 1923:


Next Sunday May 13th, there will be an

Invitation run to Epping Forest. All riders 

welcome. Start Victoria Avenue 8 am. So

muster up and see if we can’t get a club in

Southend. Full particulars A. Holmes 50,

Inverness Avenue, Westcliff

(They didn't make it to Epping Forest!) We are planning to replicate this ride on  13 May 2023, and make it to Epping Forest this time, 100 years later! Check our events listing for Centenary events. There will be a variety of rides on Sunday 14 May which will include Hockley Woods, and other heritage rides visiting significant venues from the Club's history, with a social gathering in the afternoon. We have identified the exact spot where the club run departed from in 1923. See you there in May 2023!
