    Maryland Wheelers is an open and friendly cycling club based in the city of Lisburn, although we attract members from much of the surrounding area.The club was founded in 1930.  Our primary focus is on road cycling and within our 44 strong membership of both young and old we have a mix of ability and ambition. Maryland caters for a variety of cycling needs from the social leisure cyclist, to the challenge seeking sportive rider, to the more competitive road racer / timetriallist and in more recent years those from the sporting discipline of triathlon. We enjoy a full inter club league racing calendar which runs from April to September. Our club offers regular organised, social rides and training runs with a firm emphasis on safe cycling. There is a wealth of cycling knowledge and support on offer to cyclists of all ages and abilities within our club. Although our club has a competitive edge we have never lost our sense of humour and we all enjoy a laugh;so if you enjoy a laugh,can take and give a bit of stick we might be the club for you. Club runs take place every Monday,Wednesday,Saturday,Sunday. 

    Maryland Wheelers is a cycling club with a proud tradition. Over the years many great cyclists have worn the club's colours. Champions in their time, Albert Ewart, WJ Stewart, Maurice Donaldson, Tommy Givan,David McCall and Denis Easton. In 2009 Heather Wilson won the Irish Road Race Championships and Mark Greer went on to win the Irish Veterans time trial championship. Also Scott Hamilton, multi-distance Irish Time-Trial Champion 94, 95 and 96, apart from repesenting N.I. at the commonwealth games he also rode in the u23 world championships in 96. Even though the core of open race riders are few, Maryland continues year after year to achieve some notable results.

    Irish International triathlete and Olympian Aileen Reid regularily trains with the club. Aileen is now living and training with a new coach in Canberra, Australia for a period along with other world class Triathletes as she works towards the 2014 Commonwealth games. Aileen had another memorable year in 2013 as she competed consistantly throughout and celebrated her year wedding anniversary. Some of her more notable results would include 3rd in Devonport, 6th in Mooloolaba, 8th in Yokohama, 2nd in Tiszaujavros and 9th in Stockholm. However Aileen's best result of the year came in the final event of the ITU World Triathlon Series in London where she finished 2nd. This gave Aileen an overall ranking of 8th for the year. We wish Aileen well and good luck for another successfull season in 2014.  

    We would like to thank Cycling Ulster for many of the photographs on our website.
