Welcome to Barton Wheelers Cycling Club.

The Club is based at Barton-on-Humber in North Lincolnshire and has members from many of the surrounding towns & villages. New members are particularly welcome whatever their cycling interest.

BWCC Virtual Race Series

In light of the current situation we have made the decision not to run any club events this season, so, in an attempt to keep some interest going, we are promoting a virtual race series using the RGT Cycling software. It will be based on our club 10, 15 and 25 mile time trial courses.

Although the events will be mass start, each rider will get an individual finish time and position. Points will then be awarded as if it was a time trial for finishing position and also a handicap competition. A league table will be issued together with the results.

As with any sporting event by entering the event(s) you declare yourself medically fit and able to participate in the ride. By entering the event(s), you waive any liability on the part of the organiser due to medical grounds.

The events will start at 19:00 on the following dates:

22/6/20 – Group ride to get familiar with the software

25/6/20 – 10 mile TT             02/7/20 – 10 mile TT

09/7/20 – 15 mile TT             16/7/20 – 10 mile TT

23/7/20 – 10 mile TT             30/7/20 – 25 mile TT

06/8/20 – 10 mile TT             13/8/20 – 15 mile TT

20/8/20 – 10 mile TT             27/8/20 – 25 mile TT

Who can enter?

Anyone – please feel free to pass this on to family, friends and team mates.

What if I’ve never raced before?

Don’t be worried about your level of fitness/experience. The good thing about a time trial is that it is essentially you against the clock, and as such a great way of monitoring your own fitness level. Strive each week to beat your Personal Best!

How do I enter?

Entry is free, as is the software (no subscription necessary). Just send an email to bartonwheelerscc@gmail.com with BWCC Virtual Race Series in the subject line from the email address you want the link to the events and results sending to each week, or send a private message to the Barton Wheelers Cycling Club Facebook page with the same details.

All we ask is that if you aren’t a member of a club, you consider joining Barton Wheelers CC (not compulsory).

What is RGT Cycling software?

RGT Cycling is not just another indoor training app. It’s an experience; a place where cyclists from around the world can meet, race and train together.

The technical requirements aren’t that different to Zwift, which I know a lot of people use. You need a power source (power meter or smart trainer), a smartphone, and either a pc/mac or a tablet that can display the ride and receive the power source (ANT+ or bluetooth dependant on your equipment). So if you already use Zwift, most should already have everything required.

This link should help with the setup and a tutorial:
