Team Swift 10 (Slower Than 21.00 But ...

In September last year, I managed to scrape an entry on the fastest 10 mile TT course in the country, the V718 in Hull. On the morning of the event, the weather was terrible and forecast to rain all day, I decided not to make the 5 hr round trip,  gambling on them cancelling the […]

Club 10 – 14th June

PLEASE NOTE : Wednesday nights TT has been cancelled due to road works, please also note, as a result of this, the final fling will now be a counter.

Anfield 100 – 29th May 2017

First of all, I would like to apologise to Dave Fearon, I used to complain about the length of his reports, and now I am just as bad, if not probably worse! I am even in danger of boring myself, let alone you lot!!😩 In preparation for this ride, having never ridden the Anfield 100 […]

Macc Wheelers 23rd May 17 –  “Fortune Favours The Brave Edition”

Here we are again, same course (Siddington), just a different name over the door, this time Macclesfield Wheelers. My day didn’t start too good. As most of you know, I am somewhat of an early bird, but on this occasion, I managed to even beat the birds by getting up a ridiculous 1:30 am!! This […]

Dave Astles Cheshire Series #4 –...

The curtain came down on the series tonight,  and what a fantastic series it has been, well done to all the organisers, very safe and very well run as usual. I suppose first of all, I think I need to give the TLI National Closed Circuit race last Sunday a bit of a mention, not […]

Dave Astles Cheshire Series – Event 3...

A fine sunny evening with scorching temperatures of around 16 deg greated riders as they arrived at the HQ, a far cry from events when I last raced here 2 weeks ago. I didnt have this race in mind when I entered the Tour of the Peak a few months ago, it seemed like a […]

Dave Astles Cheshire Series – E...

  This series, in memory of the late Dave Astles, brings the start of the TLI evening events, and just as it did last year, we saw a build of 4 seasons in one day with Sun, Rain, Hail, Sleet, Wind & Cold change a number of times throughout the day. As it turned out, […]

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 […]

The Wild Wales Challenge 2017

This is advance notification for those clubs that have entered 4 or more riders in previous Wild Wales Challenges, organised by Cycling UK (formerly Merseyside CTC). This years event […]

Great to hear that @WeaverValleyCC Oulton Park Series was a success and they are planning to run it again next year #useitorloseit

I hope it's ok to ask for some advice on here? What is the best way to prepare yourself for hill climbing. I'm cycling a 50 mile route next weekend in North Wales which has a climb of 4700 feet in total. I'm ok with the distance, but think the most I've climbed over that distance is 3200 feet. ... ’Expand’’Hide’
