Wellington Wheelers Cycling Club

Wellington Wheelers Cycling Club. A social cycling club based in Wellington Somerset for riders of all ages and abilities. We run rides throughout the week as well as Time Trials in the summer and trips to the Newport Velodrome. The social side of the club is also taken very seriously with each ride having a cafe stop, and several events planned through the year including a summer BBQ, an Easter Egg Hunt and the Christmas lunch. For more information please contact us.

West Buckland Hill Climb 2018


Sunday, 4th November 2018, 10:00

The Wellington Wheelers Hill climb takes place on Sunday 4th November and all are welcome. Please come and join us. This is a CTT Open Event run on a 'come-and-try' basis and, therefore, does not require club affiliation for competitors.

First rider is off at 10:00 but all riders must be wearing a number by 09:45 as the check-in will close at this time. If you’re planning to participate please register on the link below. Entries will be strictly limited to 65 so there will be no scope to register on the day. Climb HQ is in West Buckland Village Hall where there will be plenty of refreshments before and afterwards.

Entry fee is £4.20 payable at on registration.

The start line is on the south side of the village on the motorway bridge.

New for this year

As this event has grown in popularity it is slightly less informal. Our insurance costs mean we have to make a small £4.20 entry charge which is payable at check-in. Sorry, but we had no choice...

There will be a one-way system in operation on the hill. Once you have finished the climb you will be directed on to the ridge road to descend via Ford Street and across to West Buckland. This safety feature has become necessary as we are unable to close the road to traffic. No descent is permitted on Buckland Hill

Competition categories this year will be:

Senior Woman

Juvenile Female or Male (16yrs - 18yrs) Parental consent required (submit form online and sign at check-in)
