The no-photo, no-sliced bread, no egg...


Not as fast or feisty as the long run, today’s ride was to got to the Candle Factory at Burwardsley. I didn’t count how many of us there were, but around 20 of us remained for the short ride at the club as the long ride departed. It was a fine day for a ride. […]

Three punctures, feisty Kris Z and a ...


Today was a great day to be out on the bike; clear skies and fairly dry roads. Just about perfect aside from the strong headwind. My theory is that the winter wind is harder to get through as it is colder and hence denser. Is there any weight to this? The long run was not […]

With the benefit of hindsight….

With the benefit of hindsight….

…on Saturday 15th October we had what was nearly a perfect club MTB ride. I’d found a route on the Internet around Rivington Pike and the attendant reservoirs, which are just outside Horwich in Lancashire that looked like it was spot on for a sensible day out. Nice distance, a reasonable amount of climbing, not too […]

We have a British Cycling coach that will train you and give you probably the best 2 hour workout you’ve ever had, for far less money […]

The non club run club run.


When is a club run not a club run? What are the numbers needed to make the ride quorate and not just another ride? Is 2 enough? Rain was falling steadily when I left home this morning and by the time I arrived at the club the volume had increased somewhat. Imagine my delight at 28 […]

Wild Wales Challenge – Trophy Award

August Bank holiday seems such a long time ago now, but for those who rode the Wild Wales challange, the best kept secret in cycling, it will be remembered as a glorious, if challenging day. Yesterday we were awarded the coveted Harold Kewish Trophy for the club team with most finishers, WVCC had twenty five […]

Weaver Valley CC Autumn Road Race, ri...


Sunday morning, a cold crisp day, just about perfect conditions for my first road race since July 2012. The six months I’ve been back on the bike have seen me progress from ‘fat middle aged man’ to ‘middle aged man’. Not bad really, you have to start somewhere and I had done as much as […]

A very Autumnel Autumn road race 2016


Well i cannot let the day finish without just a few words about our very autumnel autumn road race today . The Weaver Valley Autumn road race . A beautiful day following a beautiful sunrise as i did a final check on the circuit this morning . I even saw a fox just finishing his […]



On Sunday 25th September 2016 I undertook one of my main challenges for the year, the 3 Peaks Cyclocross in Yorkshire. This is a unique and popular annual event and it is now in its 54th edition, it’s well known in the cyclocross circles and is oversubscribed with entries limited to 650 places and usually […]

Fooled by the forecast

Kev C, Matthew and myself

Ten souls were already assembled at the Hazel Pear when I got there just before 9.30 (I try to get to any rendezvous just a couple of minutes early as I hate waiting and getting cold). We were about half and half Weaver Valley and Warrington Road Club. The Weaver Valley half were me, Alan, […]

WVCC Cat & Fiddle Hill Climb 201...


Nice day for a hill climb. The sun was out, the wind was light, and riders gathered early, eager to sign on and get prepared for the ride. Even from the start riders, it looked to be a reasonably fast day, and there was an air of competitive spirit that saw the faster riders battle […]

Angry? No. But I am very cross riding to work today. :-)

A big shout out for Runcorn Cycle Centre who did a sterling job at light speed in getting and building my Cycle 2 Work bike.
Unlike Carol's new bike, I'll be riding this through winter... ;-)
