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 […]

The real long run

The real long run

Well Kev and I opted for the “shorter long run”, but as ours was run by a real WVCC rider in proper kit, whilst the other long run was run by some imposter in Dulwich Paragon kit (he needs to speak to the WVCC kit secretary), we considered ours was the real long run. Jules […]

Club 50 mile Champs – 18th June 2016

  Today was the M&DTTA 50 mile champs incorporating the WVCC club champs.  A large field of 105 riders was on the start list and WVCC had 5 entrants.  First off was yours truly feeling OK but a little worried after spending 25 hours on planes this week flying to San Francisco on Monday and […]

Anfield BC 100 – 30th May 2016

Anfield BC 100 – 30th May 2016

This is a classic in the World of Time trialling as this event has been held since 1889 and the list of winners is a who’s who in our sport.  The course is largely on quiet single carriageway roads and unfortunately the start time is 6:01am!😟 Only two brave (stupid) souls met the starter and […]

Warrington R.C. 50 – 28/05/2016

A quick report on today’s local open TT.  3 WVCC riders started but sadly only 2 finished as Caroline Fearon retired at 34 miles but will be back for more next week. Second quickest in our colours was Alan Shuttleworth riding fixed wheel and he was happy with his time of 2:31:24.  Alistair Stanway was […]

The “almost as fast as the fast training ride” ride

Well this one was an eye-opener. I’d not done this training run before and it felt very different from a club run. We met at Hatchmere at 10 and right from the start it felt like I was hanging on. With me were Jim Williams, aka Cancellara, patron of the peloton, who professed to feeling […]

Cycling coaching

Hi fellow Weaver Valley members, Would you like to become a better bike rider? I am training to be a British Cycling Level 2 coach, and over the next few weeks I need to deliver some coached sessions to a group of riders, ideally 6-10.  I would like to know if anyone in the club […]

The Weaver Valley Autumn Road Race – a race organiser’s perspective…

2015 – Weaver Valley CC Autumn Road Race – 11 10 15 – Results Well in the end all went well, but this race was never straightforward. Cheshire Police decided some time ago to ban any races using laps of 10 miles or less, so our race was in doubt. Then Graham Gregory came up […]

Non competitive cycling, an alien concept for some…

Well what a fantastic turnout for the Northwich Pedal Power festival, with a few hundred riders setting off on various length rides this morning. I ended up with a large group on the 70 mile ride, which followed a beautiful circuitous route which criss-crossed betweeen Middlewich, Winsford and Delamere. Jim Williams is an amazing front […]

Cramming for Llanberis…

Cramming for Llanberis…

We had a large group out on the long run today, no doubt prompted by the imminence of the club weekend to Llanberis in two weeks’ time (eek!) Jim led us out through Davenham and Swettenham to Congleton – an incident free ride other than Heather getting a puncture and Carol being told off by […]

Time Trial Pacing

Time Trial Pacing

How can I go faster? Having come back to the time trial scene at the start of last year, after a break of ‘n’, years, I faced two challenges: How do I time trial fast enough to go under the hour on a 25 course, and under 24 minutes on a 10 – which is what […]
