Derek 15th in Tour of Britain in PB

How can this be? I hear you cry. He is always at the back, has mudguards and a saddle bag containing a bike shop set of tools and spares. This Tour started back in the winter of 2001-2. A change of jobs took me away from my involvement men’s lacrosse (Who knew that?).I had turned […]

Guardian Cup Round 8 – 19th July 2017

The threatening thunderstorms held off so the brave few who turned up actually enjoyed quite a good night.  Also it hammered is down after the event so everybody went home happy.  Jim Duffy put out another good ride but most excited finisher was Alison who beat 2 people tonight and well and truly rubbed Dave […]

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream

The starting point for this months MTB away day was Trentham Gardens, Stoke-on-Trent. It was riders choice as I had two routes planned and was happy to navigate either of them. However, for two of us, Rob and myself, the starting point was Middlewich. On our way to Trentham we would meet up with Steve […]

It was 12 degrees when i left the house on Sunday morning. And spitting. It was that wet rain, the sort of rain that gets you wet. It stayed wet till lunch. Game for a laugh were Steve, Stuart, Alan, Geoff and me. We took the direct route out to Press, direct and flat. The […]

Club 10 Mile Championship – 12th July 2017

As it is the shortest fixed distance the 10 is usually the most popular and therefore the most hotly contested of our championships.  Last night there were a lot of missing faces but nevertheless we still had 13 Weaver Valley riders and this was supplemented by 8 riders from other clubs.  My old club the […]

Guardian Cup Round 7 – 5th July...

A clear, sunny and warm evening with barely a whiff of a breeze was almost perfect for some fast times. Indeed, despite some pre-race excuses, Jim Duffy stormed around the course for a mid 22, whilst others had the cup in their sights, determined to grab valuable seconds to convert to points. For the Guardian […]

Guardian Cup and Scratch 10s results ...

More controversial than Peter Sagan’s elbow, there have had to be some adjustments to the overall and cumulative points standings due to an error in recording the PBs from last year. Fortunately, I’m not going to be thrown off the tour, and the results have been corrected. Fewer riders were out last week, and therefore […]

Gordon Pickering

Gordon Pickering

I received the following e-mail from Carol Pardoe at the M&DTTA about the sad passing of Gordon Pickering.  I worked with Gordon a lot as he used to be the area Courses secretary, a job which I have now taken over plus I sit on the M&DTTA  committee and he was active in both organisations for […]

Guardian Cup Round 6 – 28th Jun...

I think the drizzle put a few people off last week as we only had a turnout of 9 riders and just 7 from the club.  However those lucky few who did ride gained some great points towards the Guardian Cup and the new 10 mile scratch series trophy.  Jim Williams also started but hit […]

As Caroline and I would be busy organising the M&DTTA 100 on Sunday we thought we’d better do some exercise this weekend so entered the Manchester Ladies invitation TT at Chelford.  Ladies (the old fashioned name for a Female), ride the event on their own but pair up with a gentleman (old fashioned name for […]
