Outside of cycling, the club organizes various social events throughout the year.
The year starts with our main social event in January – the Annual Awards Dinner, held in a local function room, this year was at the Chalkwell Park Rooms. This gives members new and old and some guests the chance to see all the silverware and trophies that the club has to offer and the awards that members can aim to win over the coming season. We also have speakers each year, normally from our local cycling community - 2022 saw Andy Lyons ex Southend Wheeler and now manager of Richardson's –Trek Elite race team speak about his life in Cycling when he was a Wheeler and how he progressed as an Elite rider, to running a team.
Summer sees the club’s annual barbecue, held at Canewdon Village Hall after club runs, this year's event was on Sunday 10th July. This is also ‘club sports day’ – a chance to play all the fun team games, such as rounders, three leg races, and sack races.
In October or November each year we organise a Reunion lunch, where current and former members celebrate their time with the Wheelers. A chance for you to meet your cycling heroes (who may have taught you how to ride a ride properly?!) Details in top panel on this page.
Christmas – each year we hold a Christmas Time Trial followed by Christmas lunch in a local pub.
In addition to the above events, other events maybe organized throughout the year such as quiz nights and meals after evening time trials.
There is always the chance to socialise after Sunday rides when all the groups return to Canewdon for tea, coffee and cake and a chat.
