Local Audax, Great Scenery and a bit ...

Dear All, Over the last four years I have run two bike rides from Winsford “Scouting Mam Tor 200K” and the “Edale Run 160K” I had several of your club members come along for the ride. I had great feedback from the rides so I’m running them again this year on the 12th March. The […]

Decisions, decisions

One of the joys of parenthood is the continual stream of children’s birthday parties there are to attend. The pleasures of standing around for 2 hours in some godforsaken hole with a load of other delighted clockwatching parents cannot be overstated. Today I was lucky enough to have a party at 12.00. So it was […]

Track nights update 2017

Before the brief report – the next, and last track night for this winter is on Thursday 9th February 2017. It’s in the calendar, get it in your diaries, and contact Nick to register. This Thursday’s track night was well attended with a mix of club members and invited non-club members. All had a great […]

Short, pacey, modern pottery confusio...

First club run of 2017, and many eager faces appeared at the busy club. The long run disappeared with vigour, heading for Prees, and we were to head for Tilly’s at Bunbury. It get’s pretty busy at the cafe on a Sunday, so we decided to have a more direct run out. Conversation was quickly […]

Manchester DC – Future of Time Trialling

Attached is the latest Manchester DC newsletter highlighting the discussions that took place back in November, at a conference to discuss the future of the sport.  Bottom line is that we need more people to help so if you would like to put something back into the sport, read on and get in touch with […]

Club Dinner 2017

It’s nearly that time of year again, and so we announce the date for our 2017 Club Dinner. Now in the calendar for Saturday 4th February 2017. This year we’re at the Winnington Park Recreation Club, and it’ll be a great evening with the usual chance to not recognise all of our club members when they are […]

Roller Racing evening and hot pot. Wh...

Want some hilarious fun on a school night? Don’t be boring, don’t stay in, come along, have some fun racing, eat some food – hot pot included! This will beat the winter blues, and get your blood pumping. Proper roller racing, against another rider, set along a set distance to give you a leg-spinning challenge! […]

The Revenge of the Yellow Tights

And yea the villagers did not understand the power of the magic of the yellow tights (nor indeed just how randomly vindictive they could be). A very large crowd assembled at the rugby club this morning. Much hilarity and ribbing was endured by one poor rider who had previously worn distinctive legwear. That over with, we […]

Wrinklies Christmas Dinner

Far from the wet and wind, Wednesday brought a breeze and some clear watery sunshine for the traditional Wrinklies Christmas Dinner run. Those of us in our youth (me especially), were not worried by taking a day off and trying to lower the average age a bit. We met at Hatchmere, and took off in […]

In search of Dagfields

On my arrival at the club this morning it was evident a discussion had been taking place as to the whereabouts of Dagfields. What was a Dagfield? Had it moved? Was it friendly? Was the plan to capture one? We may never know. Conversation briefly turned to my yellow tights Alan being particularly envious (to […]

1953

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there. Sunday morning was cold and bright. Knowing that the long run was liable to be a short run I set the alarm early with the intention of getting an extra hour in. Sense prevailed however when I saw the thick frost and imagined the […]

Hi everyone , I'm planning a holiday in Sardinia this April, staying in Cala Gonone (east coast) if you've ridden there before please could you recommend some good bike hire shops (I don't fancy the idea of taking my own bike). I've googled some but the bike choice is very poor.
Thanks

Well five of us made it to Loggerheads in weather varying from wet to very very wet. Paul G and Kev did a great job setting a sensible pace on the front (by which I mean a pace I could just about manage) and they, Jeff and Colin were brilliant about ensuring we all stayed together even though they are used to going much faster. The weather got to all of us as well as into my bones and by the time we got to Loggerheads at 1.30 we were all saturated and hungry, but one benefit of the weather was that they had room for us! Jeff didn't have glasses so had really sore eyes. Anyway we whizzed home with a welcome tailwind and Kev and I arrived home at 4pm in the gloom. The conversation on the ride followed the 80:20 principle, I.e. 80% of it was in the first 20% of the ride, we got very quiet (even me!) as we got wetter. Did I enjoy it? In a strange masochistic way I did, although I am bushed now. And I feel very bonded with and indebted to my riding buddies for their kindness and support. Some good miles done for Llanberis! ... ’Expand’’Hide’
