Members of the West Cork Wheelers.

THE West Cork Wheelers cycling group celebrated their first anniversary recently with a summer barbeque held on Whiddy Island.

The West Cork Wheelers is a newly formed cycling club that started last February and has gained in strength and numbers since its first outing.

It started out with a weekly spin on Sunday mornings with many participants returning to cycling for the first time in years, great encouragement and knowledge continues to be given at every spin by the long time cyclists and of course a cuppa and chat is a must.

Since the Wheelers commenced many cyclists have participated in several charity cycles such as the Kinsale 100 to the West Cork 200 and the famous Ring of Kerry and many more with most entry fees/sponsorship going to well deserving charities.

The West Cork Wheelers meet every Sunday at the Maritime Hotel, Bantry at 10am for a leisurely spin and all are welcome.
