Weaver Valley Cycling Club

Welcome to WVCC!

The WVCC was formed in 1962 when a young John Horsfield, an apprentice of ICI, was awarded the company’s ‘Fleck Award’ for his interest in cycling. At this time it was recognised that Northwich was without a local cycling club and the suggestion was put forward to start one. Two hard line local cyclists were contacted, Jack Gee and Allan Littlemore and with that cocktail of youth, experience and enthusiasm the seed was planted for the Weaver Valley Cycling club to grow – and its continued to grow ever since.

We are now a good all round club and cater for mountain bikes, cyclo-cross, track racing, road racing, time trials and club runs, with aspects for the competitive and leisure rider alike.

There is no club run this sunday as it's 'all hands to the pumps' for our Autumn Road Race.. it's not to late to put your name down............ .... ... SO, if you fancy a steady run on Saturday over to the mills [or we might venture to Henbury for a change], we leave Hatchmere Xrds @ 10am prompt.. ... ’Expand’’Hide’

Hi all,

Gym nights start again this Wednesday. 1st week may be a bit dis-organised, not had time to really get things sorted.

Not sure how much room we will have and what we will be able to do. Going to set a max number of 15 for the 1st week. Currently got 6 names so if you can make it get your names down ASAP. After this week hopefully I will have a better idea of max numbers and what is best.

One thing I will guarantee is an hour of hard work. Starts at 2000 at MPA, Kingfisher Court off Denton Drive behind B+Q.

We organize an (almost) weekly 10 mile time trial event through the spring/summer, two Audax UK events, an open hill climb, club track sessions, a number of road races and an annual cyclo-cross. Weekly rides leave from Winnington Park Rugby Football Club on a Sunday morning (see map below), the “Wrinklies” ride starts from Hatchmere at 10am on Wednesdays and regular mountain bike rides are also run. We run a club weekend which takes place each year into and through Wales and a week in Majorca for training (or sunbathing!) also takes place. We also have an informal  weekly club night on a Tuesday Evening in the Winnington Park Rugby Football Club to recuperate after a long weekend riding where provisional new members are welcome to turn up and say hello. We also conduct non-cycling events from time to time, walks, bbq’s etc. And of course there is the annual awards ceremony – a chance to loose the lycra and dress like normal people!We pride ourselves on being a friendly and welcoming club able to cater for all levels of cyclist. We have a whole spectrum of riders, from top class athletes competing at the World Track Championships at the Manchester Velodrome, right through to the leisure cyclist out for a Sunday afternoon potter through the lanes of Cheshire, to the enthusiastic mountain biker risking life limb and sanity on the single track.
Shaved legs or not, welcome to the club!See the map below, to help you find us!
