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 […]

WVCC Guardian Cup & Scratch Trop...

Well, a tougher night than we’ve had in a few weeks greeted the riders who were contesting the Final Fling, the overall Scratch, and most importantly, the Guardian Cup. Before this last round, Paul Connor found himself leading by a single point ahead of Tony Booth. tonight, it was an all out battle to improve […]

WVCC AGM 2017 – Tuesday 19th Se...

This post is to announce the date of the AGM, and encourage members to come along, listen to what we have done this year, what we plan to do next year, and hear proposals that you, our members may put forward. In addition to this, it is also a good opportunity to ask questions, and […]

Guardian Cup and Scratch points after...

It couldn’t get more exciting with just 1 round to go in this year’s club time trial championships. The Guardian Cup is now hotly contested, with Paul Connor now only 1 point ahead of Tony Booth after spending most of the season way ahead. But, as more riders get to riding the maximum of 7 […]

Guardian Cup and Scratch points after...

Following a bit of a delay over summer, here are the updated points tables for the 2 competitions that we have running this year over our club 10 mile time trial series. Firstly, the Guardian Cup. We have 2 scoring rounds left this year. After round 9, Paul Connor has stretched out a nice lead […]
