Mow Cop – The return of the Kil...

White flags, yes, but Derek was victorious. Al wondered where his lungs had gone, but was nursing a hangover from the day before (we all have our excuses).

It was definitely time to put Mow Cop back on the club run scene. Normally only reserved for long runs, we decided it would be a good idea to give it a go, then try out a new club run cafe highly recommended by one of us who had spotted a sign last time we were […]

Leigh Premier RC 10 – 22nd May 2016

Today Caroline and Dave Fearon rode their second time trial of the weekend following on from the 25 yesterday.  The event was supposed to be a 25 but road works forced the organiser to reduce it to a 10 using the D10/1 course at Rainford. The weather was much more settled today which was just […]

Stone Wheelers 25 – 21st May 2016

Today was the first outing on the rarely used but fast 25 mile course at Blythe Bridge, along the A50 dual carriageway.  The day didn’t look promising with heavy rain forecast all afternoon which usually means a cancellation of the event for safety reasons.  We had an impressive 11 WVCC entries plus Carl Ruebotham who […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

4881

A slightly more pleasant evening this week as the wind was a little more favourable, with a tailwind start, and a cross wind on the A50, but it’s never easier, you just go faster or push yourself harder! Fast men tonight were those flying into the 23s, with Jacob Booth from Team Bikehaus taking the […]

Have your say – a Rights of Way...

Cheshire West and Chester Council are to create a new Rights of Way Improvement Plan. They are carrying out a short online survey to get public feedback – your chance to tell them what you think about footpaths, bridleways, etc. in our area. It would be really useful to get feedback from the cycling community! Please find the link […]

Race Report – Dave Astles Memor...

13043400_880389948737040_360274847602833370_n

Last night was the 4th and final event in the Dave Astles Memorial Cheshire Series. The whole series has been well organised and thankfully incident free. With Iain marshaling and Jules stuck at work, it left Kev (in the over 55s), Mark Adshead and myself (in the 45-54s) to fly the WVCC flag. Conditions were […]

Jim “the b@st#rd”

Jim “the b@st#rd”

With the recent racing on a Sunday, I had been missing the good old club run, and with Pott Shrigley on the calendar, I thought it would be quicker to ride another 20 miles or so to Chinley rather than wait to get served and to pay there! So I changed the calendar a few […]

The familiar unfamiliar, big cakes, l...

There was banter and insults aplenty. None repeatable.

It was a cooler than expected start to the day as I left home for the club. I left my arm warmers on and did a few miles of spinning to get the legs warm. Fortunately, as I neared the club, glimmers of blue sky did appear in the distance, although the wind kept things […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

Geoff enjoyed he sunshine start, and disappeared quickly off the line,

In stark difference to the week before, the weather was dry but the wind was in an entirely different direction. This made for a very hard night for most, and there weren’t many who were gaining time on the night, with a crosswind off the start, and a headwind along the A50 for what seemed like […]

WVCC Oulton Park Race Series

An off road weekend of ups and downs....

An off road weekend of ups and downs. And more ups.

The dates chosen for this year’s club off roader glamping weekend coincided with the ever popular Borderland Rotary Mountain Bike Challenge, so in democratic fashion I deferred my choice of the Scottish borders for the Welsh ones and last Friday evening eight of us arrived in Llangollen for the traditional MTBing triumvirate of eating too much […]

VTTA – Manchester & NW Gro...

VTTA

Hello Everyone At the last AGM of Manchester & NW Group of the Veterans Time Trials Association, we had a discussion about the desirability of letting more competitive cyclists aged 40+ know about the VTTA and so we have put together the attached A5 promotional leaflet. VTTA Manchester & NW Group Flier Thanks and best wishes Brian […]

Road Rules Reminder!

Just want to post a quick reminder with regards to local roads that we use often.
When on Sunday rides, please ensure that when we are taking routes along Church Street in Davenham, that we ensure that we travel no more than two abreast, and drop into single file as necessary, to ensure safe passage for cycles, cars, horses and pedestrians. This is especially the case on a Sunday morning, as many people arrive to attend church at this time. We must therefore ensure, as ambassadors for our club that we take care in this area.

Also, when returning from rides, either in a group or alone, approaching from either Church Street or London Road, please make sure that you do not take a shortcut along the one way section of Hartford Road, unless you have dismounted and are pushing your cycle along the pavement, (almost directly opposite Church Street), but continue along the road and turn into Green Lane (only a few metres further on), which then leads you back into the two way section of Hartford Road.

Remember that on all rides, whether in a group or alone, when wearing our club kit, you are representing the club, and any behaviour contrary to that recommended above, reflects badly on us all.
