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…

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 […]

Saturday ride folks, I think we need to be a bit more considerate to eachother and check after busy junctions that everyone is together. On the way home today we took a left onto the A56 Warrington Road and four of us had to stop for the car which was coming. As it was not one person from the front group looked back to check if we were all together and shout half a rev, so the four of us were left flailing with no chance of getting back onto a bunch doing 23-24mph. No one even waitied for us at any of the following juntions either, so we rode the 15miles home alone - not the best really. ... ’Expand’’Hide’

Just back from an excellent ride in the forest with Nick Butterworth, Kevan Underhill and two new father and son combos, Roger and Owen, Brian and Matthew. Did lots of good and twisty if slightly claggy trails and forgot about the rain, much better than riding on the road in this weather imho. Thanks everyone! ... ’Expand’’Hide’
