WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

The weather has been pretty unpredictable in terms of when the rain is going to come down, so I didn’t expect a large turnout this evening. Clearly, there are many eyes on the Cup this year, as we had a total of 25 (19 club) riders turn up to take their chances. Fortunately, as with […]

Ferry across the Mersey ride – ...

Hi – yes its summer, so its time for the Ferry across the Mersey ride. This is a reminder post just in case you’ve forgotten to book the day of work – or for those who don’t look at the calendar! I’ve moved to an earlier date to avoid the school holidays and it will be on […]

Pedal Powering along…

Pedal Powering along…

No club runs today, but we did have a stand at Pedal Power this year again. A day of showers and not showers looked like it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the many sportive participants and the other stallholders, with all sorts of food, drink and stuff on display and for sale. Starley Bikes had […]

WVCC Club (nearly*) 10(s) – 2 u...

It appeared that the slight change in climatic conditions with sporadic heavy showers punctuating the sweltering heat, gave rise to what is sometimes deemed in time trialling terms as a ‘floater'(!) Perhaps perfect conditions for some excellent times. In some respects, it’s a shame that this wasn’t Guardian Cup round 5, as there would have been […]

Oulton Park Race Series – Event...

First things first, what a wonderful club we have, its great to see so may members coming along to help, too many to mention, but without which, these events wouldn’t be possible. Jim Williams also did a fantastic job, even though he couldn’t remember his off on Saturday, he fortunately remembered to order the weather 🌞, […]

Guide Dogs, team orders, glorious sun...

Wow. What a day. Hot, hot, hot. It was great to meet at the club and get on our way to feel the breeze on a hot day. We all gathered for 1 ride today, and set off for a ride to the Ice Cream Farm. As we rode down the entrance drive from the […]

Stretford Wheelers/ M&D Ladies 25...

Dave came up with some random excuse for not writing today’s race report so handed the batten to me!!!! Whilst the weather looked good, sunshine and no wind, it wasn’t really the best conditions for a TT, it was clammy, no air, and just plain horrible! There is normally some kind a wind, one way […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

A difficult evening to read as the riders turned up to sign on tonight. A bit heavy perhaps, but a cross-tailwind start, and even a bit of a tail-finish. This of course meant that there would be a headwind on the A50. Never good. Nevertheless, 24 riders started, hoping to snatch at least a second […]

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 […]

Guide Dogs for the Blind – Tour...

Guide Dogs for the Blind – Tour de Tattenhall – 5th June 2016 What’s that all about then? Well, it’s been a couple of years since we’ve teamed up with Guide Dogs for the Blind – http://www.guidedogs.org.uk for a day to a) raise a bit of money for this worthy charitable cause, and b) to have a […]

Ok, so start sheets just about finalised prior to next weeks Round 1! Look forward to seeing you all next week #bringthesunshine

This might sound like a daft question but the 10 TT on 3 May is for setting your handicap. Don't all riders who participated last year already have a handicap time? I understand that we all should turn up because otherwise there would only be a few newcomers who haven't already got a time. Also, we may be quicker now than we were last year. Just asking. ... ’Expand’’Hide’

Can anyone shed any light on this,, ? I did a Zwift race tonight, started off ok in a bunch , then found myself alone for the entire race, crossed the line, but It didn't seem to end so I just warmed down a bit and ended my ride,,, ended up with a dnf, my ftp was 254 and power was 3.1 w/kg should have seen me reasonably well placed, I'm a bit baffled! ... ’Expand’’Hide’

One of the 'must ride' races in the 2017 Cyclocross calendar takes place at Blists Hill Victorian Town in Shropshire on Saturday 8th July.

THE QUEEN VICTORIA CYCLOCROSS RACE is a truly unique off-road cycling event; sponsored by LUDGATE FINANCE and broadcast on SKY TV/VIRGIN Bike Channel it attracts over 300 riders from across the UK all competing over a course like no other.

With officials dressed in Victorian costumes and spectators enjoying traditional Victorian entertainment including barrel organs, steam engines and a funfair you would be forgiven for thinking this is all just an excuse for some summer fun – and for the spectators enjoying a real ale or two from the authentic Victorian pub it undoubtedly is.

But for the riders – this is serious stuff. It isn’t badged “Britain’s craziest bike race” for nothing. Entries are now open and the organisers are encouraging anyone to come and have a go, from novice riders to experienced cyclocross riders. Entrants can use either mountain bikes or cyclocross bikes, but prepare for a challenge! This is a tough off-road cycle race, for adult and junior competitors alike.

Each race takes in several laps of a gruelling circuit featuring pavements and cobbled streets, wooded trails, steep hills (including the ascent of the Hay Incline Plane) with riders having to carry their bike over several parts of the course. The event will also feature the Telford Balance Bike Championship.

Promoter Nick Jeggo said “We are delighted that once again we are receiving generous sponsorship from Ludgate Business Finance. The event has become one of the favourites on the Cyclocross calendar with people travelling from all over the country to take part. The event has grown year on year and we’re looking forward to an evening of family fun combined with top class cycling action”

Steve Grice Director of Ludgate Finance, himself a keen cyclist with Newport Shropshire Cycling Club said “ This is a great fun event, and we are very happy to be headline sponsor again, meaning it can be televised so more people can enjoy it. It’s a real have-a-go race for all comers”

Taking place at this World Heritage Site located in Shropshire’s beautiful Ironbridge Gorge there is much to enjoy for spectators and riders alike and with the town’s Victorian pub, traditional chip shop and café all open to provide refreshments a great family atmosphere is ensured.

Gates open 17:15, first race 18:00
