WVCC Track Nights 2017

It’s that time of year again when the nights draw in and it starts to get colder, but don’t worry as you can carry on riding the warm, smooth boards of the Manchester Velodrome all through the winter. First club night with our usual coach, Paul West, is 7 Sept.  Thereafter the first Thursday every month […]

Delamere off-road 5th Nov. 2016

Lovely ride in the forest today with just Steve Marlow, Mark Gavin (on his first WVCC off road ride) and me. Matthew and Andy Beswick couldn’t make it as they were on course clearing duty for next Saturday’s cyclocross at Greenbank. Fantastic autumn colours on a bright, crisp morning. We set off up Old Pale […]

This is the perfect opportunity to get some excellent training and experience with the club. We have a British Cycling coach that will train you and give you probably the best 2 hour […]

Picos de Europa cycle tour May 2016

Bikes aren’t just training tools for battering each other with. They are a fantastic mode of transport for exploring new environments.  So, after a shortish tour around Lyon and the Vercors region of France last year, Ann and I decided to make a trip to the spectacular Picos de Europa mountains in northern Spain.  A […]

Delamere off road ride Sat 6 Dec

It turned out lovely in the sunshine and great to see so may out on a frosty morning – probably safer on the tracks and trails than the icy roads. 15 is the most we have had out for ages so we split into 2 groups with Kev and El accompanying Nicola and newcomers Julia, […]

Off Road Ride from Hayfield over the Dark Peak 22 Nov

Just Kev, Tim and I, but a superb ride across to Hope. We set off up a gruelling climb to Rushup Edge via the Roych, then Mam Tor followed by a very steep descent from Hollins Cross to the Edale Valley. Although very wet, many of the tracks are rocky so shed the water, but […]

Whinlatter off road Duathlon Sun 16 Nov

Kev & El competed it this gruelling event in the Lakes. I was planning to, but had a flat battery in my campervan which let me off the hook and saved me a thrashing from Kev. The event attracts athletes from all over the country and the standard is very high. A 6km trail run followed by […]

Weaver Valley Cyclo Cross 2014

Weaver Valley Cyclo Cross 2014

Good weather and a challenging course made for a great day – thanks to all the riders and especially all the fantastic support from WVCC members who gave up a full day to help out, the BC and NWCCA team (http://nwcca.org.uk/) who were brilliant as usual and Steph Kemp on first aid. The event continues […]

Off Road Ride Delamere Sat 4 Oct

Off Road Ride Delamere Sat 4 Oct

Some tired legs after our exertions on the velodrome boards the night before, but 8 made it for a damp but very pleasant ride around the forest. By the time we got to the top of Old Pale the sun was shining. Steve M, Rob and Steve C, Geoff and Iain (from Scotland like Danny McCaskill […]
