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.

Got a nice rolling route planned for Sunday to Plassey !🚴😁 ... ’Expand’’Hide’

Would I be able to join you on your club ride Sunday morning? ... ’Expand’’Hide’

Who fancies being in a Guardian pic? (I know you lot are all old hands at this!) We're having a photocall in the Bull Ring tomorrow, Friday, at 2pm to launch a Northwich Town Council, Sustrans and Pedal Power cycling strategy for the town centre and need folk on bikes! ... ’Expand’’Hide’

After bumping into Jim Williams last week, after twenty odd years I have undertaken my first WVCC ride today. Just wanted to say thanks for the super warm welcome it was a pleasure meeting you all. Operation 'faster at 44 than 24' is on. See you next week. ... ’Expand’’Hide’

Hill climb 20th September - plea for volunteers. Marshals, timekeepers' assistants, pushers off, sign on and numbers and help with refreshments required. ... ’Expand’’Hide’

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!
