Wigan Wheelers and Triathlon Club are a friendly cycling and triathlon club based in Wigan, providing training and social opportunities catering to recreational and racing cyclists and triathletes of all disciplines. Our club was formed in 2019 by the bringing together of Wigan Wheelers and Wigan Triathlon clubs, with a combined history of over 120 years. The club is affiliated with British Cycling and British Triathlon, as well as other racing organisations to provide as many opportunities to our members as possible.
We organise and take part in a range of racing events, weekly time trials (summer only) with club runs taking place every weekend throughout the year. We welcome visitors from any part of the local areas, and from elsewhere if you are visiting the area for whatever reason.
We cater for every ability from the beginner to the experienced and welcome newcomers on many of the rides. The Club has a number of Awards/Trophies which are presented each year to the most deserving Club Member in each of the various categories. These awards cover racing and non-racing activities and are presented at the Annual Dinner and Prize Presentation evening, which is usually held in December/January each year.

A number of Wigan Wheelers and Triathalon club members raced, and won the NLTTA's combined club 25mile time trial, which was on the L2521A course near Garstang on Sunday 6th September.
We won the time trial with a combined time of 2:55:37 (based on the fastest 3 riders), beating Bury Clarion by 1:54. Our highest placed member was Adam Taylor in 8th place, with an excellent time of 57:08.
