Macc Wheelers 25 – J2/9

I dont think I thought it through when I entered this event! I came home yesterday from a great 10 Days in Majorca, riding in general, every other day completing 470 miles and over 26000 ft of climbing. It dawned on me, as much as I wanted too, that it would not be a good […]

Withington Wheelers – 25m TT (J...

So today was the official start of my TT season. Cheshire TT courses are renowed for not being the quickest, so I was surprised when the start sheet came out with an enormous field of 150 names on it, in addition there was a further event before hand for Novice riders which included a further […]

The Curse of The Nova 2up!

The Curse of The Nova 2up!

Some of you may recall my previous experience of this event when I last rode it 3 years with Dave Fearon, my tri bar fell out, so I spent much if the ride with it bouncing off the front wheel. I started the morning off by actually getting my TT bike down for the first […]

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 […]

Long Run – The No Car Cafe

Well, the plan was to go over to Tea on the Green at Chinley as a precursor to next weeks Wild Wales Challange, however, I had already suspected that Tea on the Green may not be large enough with everyone making a last ditch effort to get miles and hills in the legs, so I […]

Pendle Forest L015 10 – 30th July 2016

I do not generally enter many open 10’s, indeed the last one I entered was March 14, however, inspired by Jim Williams performance in Hull a few weeks back, and my wish to obtain a sub 22:30 to obtain the senior gold standard, I entered this a few weeks back. As It happens, I actually […]

Winter kit order

Gentle reminder, if you need any winter kit, I need your order before the end of July.  Below is the current kit in stock

Audlem RR Series Event 1 (of 4)

Audlem is lucky to have 2 road race circuits that comply with the rules, however, last weeks event was cancelled as both had road works on, so tonight’s event became the first on the series of 4. Condidtions were dry with a bit of a breeze, it was initially quite cool considering we are now […]

Otley CC 50 – The No Gaffa Tape...

Many of you will remember Dave Fearon’s epic ride a couple of years ago when he had to Gaffa tape his trainers to his pedals as he forgot his shoes, well this was the same event. As many of you know, I am no stranger to getting up early, but when the alarm went off […]

Ok, so start sheets just about finalised prior to next weeks Round 1! Look forward to seeing you all next week #bringthesunshine

This might sound like a daft question but the 10 TT on 3 May is for setting your handicap. Don't all riders who participated last year already have a handicap time? I understand that we all should turn up because otherwise there would only be a few newcomers who haven't already got a time. Also, we may be quicker now than we were last year. Just asking. ... ’Expand’’Hide’

Can anyone shed any light on this,, ? I did a Zwift race tonight, started off ok in a bunch , then found myself alone for the entire race, crossed the line, but It didn't seem to end so I just warmed down a bit and ended my ride,,, ended up with a dnf, my ftp was 254 and power was 3.1 w/kg should have seen me reasonably well placed, I'm a bit baffled! ... ’Expand’’Hide’

One of the 'must ride' races in the 2017 Cyclocross calendar takes place at Blists Hill Victorian Town in Shropshire on Saturday 8th July.

THE QUEEN VICTORIA CYCLOCROSS RACE is a truly unique off-road cycling event; sponsored by LUDGATE FINANCE and broadcast on SKY TV/VIRGIN Bike Channel it attracts over 300 riders from across the UK all competing over a course like no other.

With officials dressed in Victorian costumes and spectators enjoying traditional Victorian entertainment including barrel organs, steam engines and a funfair you would be forgiven for thinking this is all just an excuse for some summer fun – and for the spectators enjoying a real ale or two from the authentic Victorian pub it undoubtedly is.

But for the riders – this is serious stuff. It isn’t badged “Britain’s craziest bike race” for nothing. Entries are now open and the organisers are encouraging anyone to come and have a go, from novice riders to experienced cyclocross riders. Entrants can use either mountain bikes or cyclocross bikes, but prepare for a challenge! This is a tough off-road cycle race, for adult and junior competitors alike.

Each race takes in several laps of a gruelling circuit featuring pavements and cobbled streets, wooded trails, steep hills (including the ascent of the Hay Incline Plane) with riders having to carry their bike over several parts of the course. The event will also feature the Telford Balance Bike Championship.

Promoter Nick Jeggo said “We are delighted that once again we are receiving generous sponsorship from Ludgate Business Finance. The event has become one of the favourites on the Cyclocross calendar with people travelling from all over the country to take part. The event has grown year on year and we’re looking forward to an evening of family fun combined with top class cycling action”

Steve Grice Director of Ludgate Finance, himself a keen cyclist with Newport Shropshire Cycling Club said “ This is a great fun event, and we are very happy to be headline sponsor again, meaning it can be televised so more people can enjoy it. It’s a real have-a-go race for all comers”

Taking place at this World Heritage Site located in Shropshire’s beautiful Ironbridge Gorge there is much to enjoy for spectators and riders alike and with the town’s Victorian pub, traditional chip shop and café all open to provide refreshments a great family atmosphere is ensured.

Gates open 17:15, first race 18:00
Spectator Entrance fee: £4 (Children under 16 free - must be accompanied by an adult) for further information visit www.queenviccx.co.uk
