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 both 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) as well as swimming, cycling club runs and running sessions. We welcome visitors from any part of the local areas, and from elsewhere if you are visiting the area for whatever reason. More details of our events can be found on this website.
We cater for every ability from the beginner to the experienced and welcome newcomers to many of our events. The Club also annually awards a number of Awards/Trophies at our Annual Dinner in winter, with awards covering both racing and non-racing activities.

Following our Annual General Meeting, we have agreed to reduce the price per swim session to £2.50 to under-18s and students. This is to reduce their financial burden and encourage attendance (unfortunately due to the National Lockdown all sessions are cancelled). See the 'Club Swimming' section for more details.
There was also an offer of half price 2021 renewal membership over January as a sign of thanks. However this offer has now ended.
Roy Holmes has organised a series of club members only ZWIFT training sessions to keep us fit over winter despite all the restrictions. These have been well enjoyed and have occasionally featured the Local professional rider Matt Holmes!
See the club cycling page and teams app for more information on how to join these sessions. ZWIFT membership and smart turbo trainer are required.
To help with the merger, we now have a new logo. This combines the joint activities and logos of the triathalon and cycling club.
This will not change the logos on the club kit. Can you spot the pier?
The club would like to say thanks to Seamus Norton for professionally designing the logo.
UPDATE: Following the plan to ease lockdown restrictions we are currently creating a plan of action for outdoor club activities.
Following the announcement of the national lockdown in England, the following club activities have been cancelled/changed:
1. Club swimming/cycling/running sessions (except the ZWIFT sessions) have been cancelled
2. The Hill climb has been postponed until a future date
