Club 10’s – Round 7 – 4th July 2018

Clearly, everyone is getting used to the warm, dry, near perfect conditions that we have been riding in lately, as the times are improving, week on week. A healthy field of 23 turned out and enjoyed the evening sun. Paul Connor did a flyer this week, looking good ahead of next week’s Warrington Road Club […]

TLI Cycling National Road Race Champi...

This year, WVCC are organizing the TLI Cycling National Road Race Championships on the Siddington circuit on the 12th August. This will be an all-day event with 2 races in the morning and 1 race in the afternoon. This is a prestigious event for our club to organise, and in order to make it a success, […]

Big butties and badgers, and cycling

Thought I’d better drag my backside out of bed and onto  bike for a change, so I did. The usual suspects at the club, and a new face, out with us to see what this club cycling lark is all about. We were to ride a nice, relatively easy short ride to Dunham Massey, Derek […]

To 25 or not to 25…. that is th...

Not to 25 as it turned out. The Withington Wheelers 25 was, at the last minute, shortened to a 10, due to roadworks at the Ollerton crossroads, complete with temporary traffic lights. Nevertheless, a TT was held, and we had 2 of our riders out today. Andy Milligan, who consistently batters out excellent times, was opening […]

Time to TT – Club 10s 2018!

Well, it’s nearly time to start time-trialling in our club 10s. If you are a member and haven’t tried a time trial, why not give it a go? You are up against the clock, and yourself, to see how fast you can cycle around an undulating course of 10 miles in length. There is no […]

Llanberis 2018. A game of two halves.

Well, if there is one thing for sure, it is that you cannot predict the British weather far in advance. It was a cold start to the weekend. Various shivering bodies turned up at the club, muttering in huddles about what was to come. All was well as they set off, and all the way […]

Llanberis 2018 – Don’t pa...

Nearly time! If you want a bit more detail about the route, then here are the GPX files for you to download to your bike GPS units. They are standard GPX files (on a PC, right click and select Save Link As or Save Target As,  to download them to wherever you want to. The […]

Cycling in the Hebrides – a bit...

I thought I’d spend a bit of time copying and pasting, to recount my week touring in the Inner and Outer Hebrides at the start of June 2017, and the nights are still dark, so, if you’re bored, or a just interested in reading a bit of a story (I say a bit, this is […]

Club Dinner 2018 – get your tic...

Time flies, and here we are organising a Club Dinner again! Now it is in the calendar for Saturday 3rd February 2018 at 19:00. This year we’re at the Winnington Park Recreation Club, and it’ll be a great evening with the usual chance to socialise whilst we’re washed and clothed normally. This year, we are lucky […]

Wrinklies Christmas Dinner 2017

There was some doubt as to whether weather conditions would improve today, but early in the morning there had been a convenient thaw, with the promise of filthy roads and rain. We’re on then. Up early, I festooned my bike with Christmas lights, and used bottle holder number 1 for a nice Malbec. After leaving […]

The challenge to find the Rickshaw, e...

Al had a good idea. As this year’s Children In Need Rickshaw Challenge was to pass within a hair’s breadth of us (well as near as Chelford anyway), Al thought it would be good and indeed different for us to ride down to see if we could cheer on the challenge, which was to ride […]

Clocks change this weekend!!

Don’t forget now will you? At 02:00 on the 29th October (early Sunday morning when you are fast asleep), the clocks will go back an hour! This is probably fine if you use a smart phone or computer as they’ll probably set themselves. Best to check though! You really don’t want to turn up an […]

Can someone just confirm. Is tomorrow's TT the Championship event only ie not a Guardian Cup round? Looking at the calendar it seems that the GC Round 8 is on 25 July. ... ’Expand’’Hide’
