Wednesday Riders

Founded January 1983 by the late Charles Allan and by Angus McCulloch.

Wednesday Riders outside Okells Garden Centre

The Wednesday Riders meet at the Eureka Café situated at Two Mills crossroads at the intersection of the A540 and the A550 each Wednesday throughout the year. Riders usually arrive in time for a chat over a cup of tea or coffee prior to departure to venues and at times shown in the rides list. In the summer the main group has an appointed leader who normally decides the route and leads the group in accordance with CTC guidelines. Other 'spontaneous' groups may form, usually riding to the same venue but perhaps by a different route and at a rate with which the riders are more comfortable.

The winter rides in October through February, which again normally depart at 10.00am, do not always have an appointed leader. However members usually gather at the Eureka and ride as informal groups. Winter lunch venues have been chosen to be within easy reach acknowledging the shorter days and increased likelihood of inclement weather.

New riders who are not already CTC members may ride up to three times with the group. Thereafter they must subscribe to CTC membership.

If you are considering riding with us you should contact Brian Lowe (0151-348-4799), preferably before the day of the ride. If that is not possible, then at the Eureka Café on the day of the ride, but at least 20 minutes before the ride departure time.

It is expected that riders will make a purchase from the Eureka Café should they enter the forecourt or the café building.
