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.

LIVE RESULTS! Fast night! ... ’Expand’’Hide’

Hi all,
I have been approached by my old rugby club Winnington Park to help raise money for a little lady called Amelia. You may have seen articles about her in the local paper. Below is a little about her from her Facebook page.

“Amelia Rose Hill was born on the 23/10/2012 with a rare heart condition tetralogy of fallots with absent pulmonary valve, MAPCA, hole in the heart, enlarged right lung artery and missing left lung artery. In January 2014 Amelia had an 8 hour open heart surgery where her heart was stopped for 4 hours to correct the problem. In July 2014, Amelia's parents were given the heartbreaking news that their daughters problem had in fact got worse and that there was now no surgical cure for her. Amelia's condition had become terminal. Whilst she still continues to look a healthy normal toddler, Amelia is a very ill young girl with a big heart for anyone who enters her life. Please support her through these next month’s #ameliasjourney”

John Pickering an old team mate of mine is organising a charity bike ride made up of ex-player, players and friends. It will take place on the 31st August. Our support will come in the way of supporting the ride and donations if you can. All club runs on that day to start at Winnington Park rugby club at Burrows Hill, Hartford. Al and I will lead rides over to the Mills made up of club riders and Winnington Park riders. The long run will do its own thing as normal.

The money raised on the day will help Amelia’s parents organise trips and events so Amelia can experience as much as possible in the time she has left.

Mine and the clubs ask is to turn up on the day have a great time and donate what you can. The rugby club will be putting on a buffet back at the club on our return to Hartford. The bar will be open!!!!!!!!

I will update on any further information when I get it.

Thanks in advance

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 Hartford Social Club Car Park 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 Monday Evening in the Winnington Park Recreation 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!
