Manchester DC – Future of Time Trialling

Attached is the latest Manchester DC newsletter highlighting the discussions that took place back in November, at a conference to discuss the future of the sport.  Bottom line is that we need more people to help so if you would like to put something back into the sport, read on and get in touch with […]

Alpine mountain biking – yikes!

Alpine mountain biking – yikes!

When I booked us both onto a cross country Alpine MTB week (with a company called Trail Addiction, in the French Alps near Les Arcs) I had the idea we’d be riding on beautiful contouring trails, through Alpine wild flower meadows, under snow-capped mountain peaks. The chap I liaised with assured me that the riding […]

Mersey RC 24 Hour National Championsh...

First of all a big congratulations to Jimmy Williams for completing the Mersey RC & National 24 Hour championship this weekend.  The result and everything else are just part of the (lengthy sorry), story and we’ll get on to that, but the achievement for every rider is just getting to the finish.  Jim will create […]

Have your say – a Rights of Way...

Cheshire West and Chester Council are to create a new Rights of Way Improvement Plan. They are carrying out a short online survey to get public feedback – your chance to tell them what you think about footpaths, bridleways, etc. in our area. It would be really useful to get feedback from the cycling community! Please find the link […]

The Group Ride – by Michael Bar...

The Group Ride – by Michael Barry

The group settles into formation meters after leaving the café. Like the table manners learned as children the formation is innate to us. Two abreast, tight against the curb we form two lines. Cars pass us with ease as we pedal out of town and into the countryside. The pair on the front increases the […]

Hi everyone , I'm planning a holiday in Sardinia this April, staying in Cala Gonone (east coast) if you've ridden there before please could you recommend some good bike hire shops (I don't fancy the idea of taking my own bike). I've googled some but the bike choice is very poor.
Thanks

Well five of us made it to Loggerheads in weather varying from wet to very very wet. Paul G and Kev did a great job setting a sensible pace on the front (by which I mean a pace I could just about manage) and they, Jeff and Colin were brilliant about ensuring we all stayed together even though they are used to going much faster. The weather got to all of us as well as into my bones and by the time we got to Loggerheads at 1.30 we were all saturated and hungry, but one benefit of the weather was that they had room for us! Jeff didn't have glasses so had really sore eyes. Anyway we whizzed home with a welcome tailwind and Kev and I arrived home at 4pm in the gloom. The conversation on the ride followed the 80:20 principle, I.e. 80% of it was in the first 20% of the ride, we got very quiet (even me!) as we got wetter. Did I enjoy it? In a strange masochistic way I did, although I am bushed now. And I feel very bonded with and indebted to my riding buddies for their kindness and support. Some good miles done for Llanberis! ... ’Expand’’Hide’
