WVCC Cat & Fiddle Hill Climb 201...

Nice day for a hill climb. The sun was out, the wind was light, and riders gathered early, eager to sign on and get prepared for the ride. Even from the start riders, it looked to be a reasonably fast day, and there was an air of competitive spirit that saw the faster riders battle […]

Stone Wheelers 25 – 10th September 2016

Time triallists talk about “Float days” which come along very rarely but when  they do it just feels fast in all directions.  Today was such a day and those who were lucky enough to ride made the most of it as the J5/8 course at Blythe Bridge is the quickest one in the area and […]

A soggy, windy Withington Wheelers 10...

My primary thoughts when getting ready for the ten today were whether I should take the dog with me for a change or not, as I was worrying that with it being stuffy I’d come back to a Baked Bodi. I decided in the end that it was cloudy and cool enough so off we […]

WVCC Club Championship 12 Hour –...

It’s funny how these things come about as all 3 riders who entered the 12 hour this Year didn’t have it on their radar until very recently.  Jim’s amazing 24 hour epic was definitely the catalyst, so thanks for that Jim (not)!  I asked Jim a while ago if he was going to make the most […]

The Guardian Cup 2016 & The Fina...

So, who won? Well, if you have been following the results trend over the last few weeks, you’ll have seen that Dave Wilkinson has been improving steadily over the year, enabling him to maximise his points. By last week, only Rich Munro could get near. This was not to be though, as Dave did enough, […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

It was a drizzly night, yet 15 intrepid riders came out, with some to see if they could improve their overall placings in the Guardian Cup. In reach of the trophy were series leader Dave Wilkinson, and Rich Munro – in grabbing distance of the prize. This is where the drama started, as Rich had […]

WVCC Open 25 Mile Time Trial – ...

Bright sunshine, a strong field and a healthy number of club volunteers meant that this looked like it would be a good, and potentially fast day. As the day started, and the first results came in, we weren’t waiting long till Lee Winslow of Wills Wheels CC stormed over the line with a 59:03, but soon followed […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

A massively windy, gusty night only brought 11 entrants to this evening’s 10, and with time running out in the Guardian Cup series, there was a feeling of ‘nothing to lose, everything to gain’ with the determined faces at the start line. Some riders will have benefited from the tail wind on parts of the […]

My 24 hour TT – a box ticked.

I am sorry for this lengthy tome, I was intending to keep it short but…so if you read these ramblings, sit down with a coffee, you’ll need it to stay awake! How do I start to recount the ride of my 1st [and possibly only 24hr TT] especially when, a] Dave Fearon has given a […]

WVCC Club 25 – 2016 Championshi...

A bright and cool night greeted the riders competing for the glory of the Club 25. Spirits were high, and the Lee appeared(!) Everyone knew that they were racing for 2nd place. 🙂 A slight headwind along Penny’s Lane would mean that times would be gained on the fast run along the A530 – King […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

Well, here we are, a week after major traffic jams and club championships settled, back to the long game of Guardian Cup points, fast times, and a more subtle battle than last year as we complete round 8. The night was a good one, with some great times and many a PB set. Fast seasoned […]

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 […]

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’
