WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

fearon1

After a rainy day, it looks like the few riders that took to the course picked a break in an otherwise wet and windy day. Some times meant big things this evening though, as Dave Fearon romped ahead to clinch the fastest time of the evening, followed by a pre-washed Jim from the Mersey Ferry […]

Ferry, puncture, walruses, pigeons, w...

Louise Lear kindly warned us in the BBC weather forecast. Did we take any notice? Take a guess.

I left the house without my rain jacket on, and within 6 feet, put it on as it started to rain. Well, we were warned, but nevertheless, a baker’s dozen gathered at the swing bridge with the skies delivering the promise of precipitation already. We thus set off promptly from Sutton Weaver, knowing that we […]

Emily tries out her new ttoy…

A TT report by Emily…. Due to a few other time trials going on at the weekend, there was a very low Weaver Valley contingent in the East Lancs 25 mile TT round the J2/9 on Saturday. The rain was predicted to finish at 2pm, which would have been perfect for the start time; however […]

Otley CC 50 – The No Gaffa Tape...

WVCCHeader3

Many of you will remember Dave Fearon’s epic ride a couple of years ago when he had to Gaffa tape his trainers to his pedals as he forgot his shoes, well this was the same event. As many of you know, I am no stranger to getting up early, but when the alarm went off […]

BDCA 50 – 25th July 2016

BDCA 50 – 25th July 2016

Today was my first ride this Year in a top class field as this event is traditionally the most difficult one to get into because of the fast course on the A50 at Etwall.  True to form all 80 entrants had faster last 3 season times than a 1:54 and nearly as many entries were […]

Warrington Road Club TTT – J2/9

Warrington Road Club TTT – J2/9

Chris Gilbertson, Jim Williams, Jo Blakeley and Jim Duffy all took part in the WRC 4 up last night, the target was to secure win the fastest team with a Lady. Conditions were perfect. Five teams were eligible, we were off 2nd at 6:48 behind Knutsford Tri, it was the first time we had actually […]

Oulton Park Series, Event No 3 Resul...

WVCCOulton_3_20160621_463

Well the weather gods smiled on us again tonight, and although it wasn’t a scorcher, at least it stayed dry…. Alan Forrester was a clear winner of the Dave Astles Memorial Trophy.. and a worthy winner he was too, he had two wins and a second over the series. I hope he enters next year […]

The real long run

The real long run

Well Kev and I opted for the “shorter long run”, but as ours was run by a real WVCC rider in proper kit, whilst the other long run was run by some imposter in Dulwich Paragon kit (he needs to speak to the WVCC kit secretary), we considered ours was the real long run. Jules […]

Referendum for a new club run. I̵...

Andy was disgusted by the politics of it all and refused to be involved any further, turning his back on the whole affair. Derek laughed, and Ian just cycled on...

Emailed Derek a couple of nights ago to see if he was out on Sunday, eager to hear his stories of his epic 600K Audax. He replied, and as Tilley’s in Bunbury was on the calendar, he suggested a route. ‘Approx 50 from Hartford odd bump.’ he said. ‘I like it!’ I replied, looking at the […]

Are we the long long club run?

WVCCHeader4

A good turn out this morning,  A short run to Tilly’s in Bunbury, navigated by Derek H, and a long run to Prees.. after the usual general socialising the long run set off first.. as we topped Burrows hill, Jules looked back and said “oh  Gosh, there’s quite a few takers” [or something to that […]

Club 50 mile Champs – 18th June 2016

  Today was the M&DTTA 50 mile champs incorporating the WVCC club champs.  A large field of 105 riders was on the start list and WVCC had 5 entrants.  First off was yours truly feeling OK but a little worried after spending 25 hours on planes this week flying to San Francisco on Monday and […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

WVCCGCup_R5_20160615_059

The weather has been pretty unpredictable in terms of when the rain is going to come down, so I didn’t expect a large turnout this evening. Clearly, there are many eyes on the Cup this year, as we had a total of 25 (19 club) riders turn up to take their chances. Fortunately, as with […]

For those who regularly consult the cafe map on the web site, please note that the latest plugin update seems to have a bug in it that fails to display the cafe indicators on the map. I'm logging a bug report with the author, and hopefully this will be fixed soon. All the cafe details are still available in the list though. ... ’Expand’’Hide’

Ferry across the Mersey ride. Please note:

Meeting place - Runcorn side of the Sutton Weaver swing bridge (opposite the vets). We will be leaving at 09:00 PROMPT. We will not be waiting.
Please bring money with you for your cafe stop, refreshments on the ferry if required, and your ferry ticket. I might be block booking and paying for this, so please bring fivers, and up to 50 p change. I don't want to be carrying too many coins in my bag for whole day, or need to start trying to find change for £10s and £20s.

Thanks.
