Llanberis 2018. A game of two halves.

Well, if there is one thing for sure, it is that you cannot predict the British weather far in advance. It was a cold start to the weekend. Various shivering bodies turned up at the club, muttering in huddles about what was to come. All was well as they set off, and all the way […]

Llanberis 2018 – Don’t pa...

Nearly time! If you want a bit more detail about the route, then here are the GPX files for you to download to your bike GPS units. They are standard GPX files (on a PC, right click and select Save Link As or Save Target As,  to download them to wherever you want to. The […]

Jim’s mystery tour to Tillys

‘Half a rev!’, shouted Carol. We had not yet left the club car park. You should understand that riders were not sprinting away, rather that Carol wanted to stamp her authority on the ride from the off. Clever thinking. Derek’s compact and bijou run had already departed for Holt when our our rather larger assembly […]

A tale of ice, no fire.

A tale of ice, no fire.

It was high time for an off-road adventure after a January hiatus, so 5 of us went fairly local and met up at Macclesfield Forest on Saturday last – at least we did once the initial Google maps confusion was sorted. Amazingly though, with all expected riders well on time even this slight delay meant […]

Horseshoe Pass. The day after the nig...

Many, many years ago, on several occasions whilst out training on hot summer days, me and a few other people would stop off at the pub in Cilcain and have a pint or 2 and then see whether we could ride home without ending up in a hedge. What a laugh. Perhaps this behaviour explains […]

Loggerheads. What doesn’t kill ...

The weather forecast is a good starting point for any outdoor activities and these days they are far more accurate and reliable than they used to be however I still think it’s a great idea to just open the door, smell the air, look at the sky, feel the wind. Then make a decision about […]

Club Kit – Please Read

Bioracer increased their prices by an average of 14% for this year, due to an increase in costs and material prices. We discussed this at a committee meeting and agreed that whilst Bioracer are a great kit supplier in terms of kit quality and service, we also need as a club to offer cheaper kit; […]

In search of Peter Sagan

Inspired by the Boddington’s canal advert and 60s tv series White Horses, we decided to visit the (now triple) world champion’s home country and set off to do a small tour of Slovenia, putting off the hilly bit by starting from Venice. The bikes arrived safely in their cardboard boxes, courtesy of Easyjet and the […]

Cycling in the Hebrides – a bit...

I thought I’d spend a bit of time copying and pasting, to recount my week touring in the Inner and Outer Hebrides at the start of June 2017, and the nights are still dark, so, if you’re bored, or a just interested in reading a bit of a story (I say a bit, this is […]

Club Dinner 2018 – get your tic...

Time flies, and here we are organising a Club Dinner again! Now it is in the calendar for Saturday 3rd February 2018 at 19:00. This year we’re at the Winnington Park Recreation Club, and it’ll be a great evening with the usual chance to socialise whilst we’re washed and clothed normally. This year, we are lucky […]

Last Chance to get your Standard Clai...

Last Chance to get your Standard Claims in!

The deadline for putting in claims for your TT standards elapsed a while ago but this is one last chance to get them in.  If you rode a club 10 or any open TT in 2017 then if it was a PB and you have not previously claimed a club standard for the medal colour […]

We are proud to announce that WVCC will be the organising club of the 2018 J-B @TLI_Cycling national RR Championship , to be held at Siddington on 12th August 2018

Have just discovered the third almost-broken link in my 105 chain since the start of the year. Seems really odd to have so many so quickly... going to replace it. Anyone have any thoughts on whether this is likely to be bad chain or something wrong with the rest of the drivetrain? ... ’Expand’’Hide’

It was great to see the garden centre buzzing with activity despite the cold weather on Saturday! Weaver Valley Cycling Club re-fuelled here on their annual cycling ride between Northwich and Llanberis. 65 riders and support crew enjoyed a pit stop with a hearty homemade lunch and warm drinks before getting back on their bikes for the second half of their 100 mile ride to Llanberis. Unfortunately the return ride back to Northwich on Sunday had to be called off due to the snowy weather. Apparently a great time was had by all, despite some cold hands and feet along the way! It was great to see you all and well done! 😀

Morning all. If you are striving to be in tip top shape as the racing season is about to begin, I’ll take your body composition statistics if you want me to. You’ll receive measurements from 10 sites of the body and will know your weight, muscle mass and body fat percentage. You can track through the year too if you wish. I won’t charge you anything as it’ll only take a few minutes so just let me know if you want to pop into my gym.
You can always private message if you don’t want it public.
