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 message from our Chairman
"URGENT Announcement Re COVID-19
To all Members,
Given the recent updated guidelines from the UK Government and the significant changes in the transmission and infection rate of the virus, it is with regret that we are suspending all group training sessions with immediate effect. I think everyone must play their part in helping to prevent this virus so we can get back to normal as soon as possible.
I appreciate the time, effort and dedication that many members have put into getting ready for the racing season, but it does look like all racing disciplines are also being cancelled or postponed.
This decision will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and depending on national circumstances, it will either be lifted or continued. Updates will be posted on here so keep an eye out.
Obviously World events have overtaken all of us. Please do look out for one another, especially our older friends and relatives who might be more susceptible to this virus. Enjoy your training, preferably solo, while we are still allowed to exercise outdoors!"
Following a meeting at Wigan Cricket Club on 17th August, the Wigan Wheelers and Wigan Triathlon have agreed to merge. The new club is called 'Wigan Wheelers and Triathlon Club'.
