WVCC Club Championship 12 Hour –...

The dream team. Happy after breaking the club record by a tiny margin! A win is a win though!

It’s funny how these things come about as all 3 riders who entered the 12 hour this Year didn’t have it on their radar until very recently.  Jim’s amazing 24 hour epic was definitely the catalyst, so thanks for that Jim (not)!  I asked Jim a while ago if he was going to make the most […]

Long Run – The No Car Cafe


Well, the plan was to go over to Tea on the Green at Chinley as a precursor to next weeks Wild Wales Challange, however, I had already suspected that Tea on the Green may not be large enough with everyone making a last ditch effort to get miles and hills in the legs, so I […]

CSP Summer Crit – a first try a...

The strung out race, early doors.

So, Mr Ady Japp has been daft enough to provide me with blog access! Though I promise to use it for the greater good of cycling and not to bang on about food – as delicious as nachos may be. As most of you know, I’ve spent the year steadily upping the racing I do […]

The Guardian Cup 2016 & The Fina...


So, who won? Well, if you have been following the results trend over the last few weeks, you’ll have seen that Dave Wilkinson has been improving steadily over the year, enabling him to maximise his points. By last week, only Rich Munro could get near. This was not to be though, as Dave did enough, […]

Alpine mountain biking – yikes!

Alpine mountain biking – yikes!

When I booked us both onto a cross country Alpine MTB week (with a company called Trail Addiction, in the French Alps near Les Arcs) I had the idea we’d be riding on beautiful contouring trails, through Alpine wild flower meadows, under snow-capped mountain peaks. The chap I liaised with assured me that the riding […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

GCup10 copy

It was a drizzly night, yet 15 intrepid riders came out, with some to see if they could improve their overall placings in the Guardian Cup. In reach of the trophy were series leader Dave Wilkinson, and Rich Munro – in grabbing distance of the prize. This is where the drama started, as Rich had […]

Membership renewal! 1st September 201...


It’s nearly that time of year again where it is time for club subscriptions renewal. As the club operates an annual subscription from September to September, 1st September is the date where members need to renew their membership. For all current members (and indeed  prospective new members!), please read the important information below. At committee meetings towards […]

WVCC Open 25 Mile Time Trial – ...


Bright sunshine, a strong field and a healthy number of club volunteers meant that this looked like it would be a good, and potentially fast day. As the day started, and the first results came in, we weren’t waiting long till Lee Winslow of Wills Wheels CC stormed over the line with a 59:03, but soon followed […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...


A massively windy, gusty night only brought 11 entrants to this evening’s 10, and with time running out in the Guardian Cup series, there was a feeling of ‘nothing to lose, everything to gain’ with the determined faces at the start line. Some riders will have benefited from the tail wind on parts of the […]

My 24 hour TT – a box ticked.

Nearly there

I am sorry for this lengthy tome, I was intending to keep it short but…so if you read these ramblings, sit down with a coffee, you’ll need it to stay awake! How do I start to recount the ride of my 1st [and possibly only 24hr TT] especially when, a] Dave Fearon has given a […]

Pendle Forest L015 10 – 30th Ju...

Pendle Forest L015 10 – 30th July 2016

I do not generally enter many open 10’s, indeed the last one I entered was March 14, however, inspired by Jim Williams performance in Hull a few weeks back, and my wish to obtain a sub 22:30 to obtain the senior gold standard, I entered this a few weeks back. As It happens, I actually […]

WVCC Club 25 – 2016 Championshi...


A bright and cool night greeted the riders competing for the glory of the Club 25. Spirits were high, and the Lee appeared(!) Everyone knew that they were racing for 2nd place. 🙂 A slight headwind along Penny’s Lane would mean that times would be gained on the fast run along the A530 – King […]
