Club Kit – Please Read

Bioracer increased their prices by an average of 14% for this year, due to an increase in costs and material prices. We discussed this at a committee meeting and agreed that whilst Bioracer are a great kit supplier in terms of kit quality and service, we also need as a club to offer cheaper kit; […]

WVCC Kit – New Administrator

Hi everyone, as I’ve newly taken over as kit secretary from Jim Duffy, I thought I’d do a post to update for those not already aware. I’ve sold a few bits of kit over the last couple of weeks, so thought I’d just update with the latest stocks. Below shows what we have in from […]

Fifty miler TT

Finally found some time to write a blog about my fifty miler TT at the weekend… So, in an effort to keep my much loved ladies BAR trophy I knew I needed to complete a 50 this year – a distance I always dread because it feels like a forever sat in a TT position. […]

Bickerstaffe Road Race

Bickerstaffe Road Race! I’m home, showered and sunburned after my first real crack at a road race, so with beef hula hoops in hand I thought I’d write a blog – not least because I promised Mr Geoff Lovelady that I’d provide a summary. I entered Bickerstaffe several months ago whilst planning out my year […]

Loggerheads on sugar

All things considered (Llanberis panic training), it was a fairly small contingent at the Rugby Club on Sunday morning. The weather was really mild compared to recent weeks so it was set to be a nice clear day on the bike for all, with just a bit of wind to contend with. Having ridden 85 […]

A soggy, windy Withington Wheelers 10...

My primary thoughts when getting ready for the ten today were whether I should take the dog with me for a change or not, as I was worrying that with it being stuffy I’d come back to a Baked Bodi. I decided in the end that it was cloudy and cool enough so off we […]

CSP Summer Crit – a first try a...

So, Mr Ady Japp has been daft enough to provide me with blog access! Though I promise to use it for the greater good of cycling and not to bang on about food – as delicious as nachos may be. As most of you know, I’ve spent the year steadily upping the racing I do […]

We are proud to announce that WVCC will be the organising club of the 2018 J-B @TLI_Cycling national RR Championship , to be held at Siddington on 12th August 2018

Advice required.
Just done a 1st proper run out in the converted TT bike. Most if the setup is OK but 2 things noticed.
1 - A real pull in the left shoulder making it very uncomfortable. Right shoulder fine. Do I widen the pad position on both pads or just the left one (making it less symmetrical)?
2 - Hamstrings are pulling when pedalling. Seat height comparable with Normal road position (No hamstring pain). Is this because it is a strange position I am not used to or saddle height?

Reminder, this weeks long ride is now to the Ponderosa. It’ll be around 85 miles with a big climb in the middle 😳. The club website still says Prees.

Short ride still to Red House Farm, Dunham.

NOW SOLD - Track bike for sale

I bought this bike 18 months ago off the Fearon’s when I first dipped my toe into track cycling. I didnt want to spend too much at the time in case I didnt get on with it, as you all know, I do get on with it, so its time to upgrade 👍🚴😃

8.5 kg total
Lightweight frame perfect for beginners and experienced riders. Very good condition. Mostly used indoors on velodrome.
Parts:
Similar to Dolan Precursor aluminium track frame (no transfers). Alpina carbon fiber forks with drill out for front break. Chrome token chainset, stem and bars. Ambrosio alloy wheels with veloflex tyres. Selle italia saddle(very small scuff). KMC hollow pin, hollow link chain. No pedals.

I am 179cm (5’10.5”) tall, so perfect for someone around the same height give or take a bit.

If you are a regular at the WVCC track night, you will be paying about £19 a time to hire a bike and shoes, so you will soon recover your money. You may also decide to get your accreditation and ride SQT’s, in which case its a no brainer.

£250
