Journey along the river Rhine, June and July 2019 The height of the Summer in late June and early July seemed a sensible time of year for a sedate journey along the whole length of the river Rhine. A downhill beginning from the source of the Rhine high up in the Swiss Alps would conclude – after a full two weeks of cycling – with an amble along the sea front at the Hook of Holland, where the river flows out into the North Sea. Plenty of sunshine to look forward to, although mountainous regions are prone to dramatic thunder storms and the seaside .. well, who would dare to predict a weather forecast for the seaside ? Four intrepid, albeit ageing travellers will journey (in the first place by plane to Zurich) by the comfort of touring bicycles along what is known as EuroVelo 15. This very flat pathway [...]
At tonight’s Annual General Meeting the club decided almost unanimously to increase the annual subscription to £20 for full membership (£10 for second claim and junior members). This is to ensure that we have sufficient funds for foreseeable expenses this year and can also afford to fund our centenary celebrations next year (2020). Subscriptions may be paid to Dave Buxton by cash or cheque payable to Rotherham Wheelers Cycling Club or electronically to the club account (details available from Dave Buxton). Club rules require subscriptions to be paid by 31 March, following which date members who have not done so will be regarded as being ‘lapsed’ and you will find me on your case.

Hello all, I hope that nobody minds me posting this. I am James from J.E James Cycles in Rotherham and I have been speaking with a club member in store today who has informed me that some of you my be interested in some support from ourselves in the way of events such as, maintenance courses, Garmin information/how-to sessions etc. Would anyone be interested in any of the following courses? (free of charge of course) Any other ideas would be welcomed- we want to support our local club. P.S The next drop of Wheelers team kit is due at the end of February, an event around then would tie in nicely.
