Our winner for 2016 - Jim!

..especially if you are one of the many who tried to get the crown from last year’s freewheel winner Jamie, by trying to freewheel down a different hill this year. On the club run out on Sunday, a stop was made at the top of the hill just past Brines Brow car park in Delamere, and […]

Now the annual ride downhill is fast approaching and it’s date is on the calendar, it’s the last championship to be decided before the coveted trophy is awarded at the club dinner. Jamie Wilson who is the current holder has a injury scare that may keep him from defending his title. Just to let you […]

To Holt, or aaaarrrghhhhhh Llanberis&...

Yep. It does. :-)

Yes, it is that time of year. We need the miles (especially me). It didn’t feel that time of the year though. Those turning up, stopped, uttered words like ‘Phew’, ‘too hot’ or started putting sun tan lotion on. Okay, not that last bit, but it was unseasonably warm on Sunday and many were over-dressed. […]

Northwich Police and WVCC team up aga...

Here we are with PC Neil Wharmby, helping us to protect our bikes!

According the the ImmobiTag web site – see www.immobitag.com – there is a bike stolen every 71 seconds in the UK. That’s a lot of bikes, and the pride and joy of many a cyclist. Insurance often doesn’t cover everything, and most of us love our bikes and would much prefer to have them returned […]

Six valiant souls (Nick, Jim, Jeff and his brother in law Jerry, Kev and me) arrived in Wray, near Lancaster, at 10 a.m., to ride the Hornby Road in honour of our absent MTB leader (Matt Hornby).  It was COLD!  I was worried that I’d be keeping everyone waiting so set off ahead, and due […]

Wild Wales Challenge 2016

Wild Wales Challenge 2016

A number of you may (or may not) have fond memories from last year’s event, personally, it was probably the toughest ride I have ever done, over 8000 ft of elevation gain in around 85 miles 2015 route can be found here. I recall a number of conversations immediately following the ride along the lines […]

Searching for a ride… Short rid...

Having seen that no short ride had been planned for Sunday’s ride I thought that I would have a look back over my Strava activities to see if I could find something suitable. A quick search for “short” rides did not reveal many options, however I did find a ride that went to the Teddy […]
