Sunny Potter to Loggerheads

Beautiful spring sunshine and very little breeze; ideal ingredients for a deluge of long-run takers. Flooded with people, masses were expected. Well in fact Paul, Paul, Tigger, Stu, Craig and Me were the sole volunteers. A cheap version of the firemen in Trumpton but with worse hats. All raring to go we were though, up […]

Mid Shropshire Wheelers 25 . 16/4/17

Well, last time I raced over these roads it was in the WCTTA 12hr event in August..Oh what a difference 6 months can make.. It was a early start for the WVCC boys [there were just 2 of us to face the timekeeper] as I was picking Andy Wooley up in Weaverham at 0700. Bikes […]

Sunday Run to Holt

Either the new long run start time has not got through to everyone or people were put off by what the might weather might have been doing as it was supposed to be fiercely wet and windy today. As it was we were a very compact group at the rugby club this morning. Never mind […]

Macc Wheelers 25 – J2/9

I dont think I thought it through when I entered this event! I came home yesterday from a great 10 Days in Majorca, riding in general, every other day completing 470 miles and over 26000 ft of climbing. It dawned on me, as much as I wanted too, that it would not be a good […]

Sunny Sunday meander with a few lumps

I approached today’s club run with more than a little trepidation; aside from the Llanberis weekend, the last month has been pretty barren with regard to miles, in fact I have not touched my bike for the last 3 weeks. Anyway, whether I ended up a complete wreck by the end, a gorgeous early April day […]

VTTA National Championship 10 mile TT

Manchester and NW hosted the VTTA [Veterans Time Trial Association] National Championship 10 mile TT , on the J2/1, Months Heath to Knutsford Road.  It was interesting that I could hear many woeful complaints after riders had finished, about the ‘sporting nature of the course’ and the’ very rough road surface’..  people came from all […]

Tour Series – It’s back, ...

It’s been a while, but the Tour Series returns to Cheshire this year as many already know, and WVCC is involved for its return. The events for the day and the pro races are happening in the centre of Northwich. We therefore need some volunteers from the club to help us with a corporate relay […]

Withington Wheelers – 25m TT (J...

So today was the official start of my TT season. Cheshire TT courses are renowed for not being the quickest, so I was surprised when the start sheet came out with an enormous field of 150 names on it, in addition there was a further event before hand for Novice riders which included a further […]

Spring is here – don’t fo...

You can all look forward to long days in the saddle and earlier meeting times as from this Sunday 09:30 (26th March), but don’t forget to put your clocks forward, otherwise you’ll turn up late and miss the ride! Also, after some members who attend the long run asked to start even earlier, as from […]

I’ve just had a club member on who had booked a twin room for the Hotel in Llanberis this weekend, [same hotel we are going to but not booked thru me] He was going to ride and his girlfriend was going to drive.. but now they can’t go. If anybody is thinking about it they […]

Flash

During last Sunday’s epic, only for the brave and strong ride, I became aware that my wheels were in need of attention. The relentless freezing rain had got in to the hubs and washed away the lubrication, replacing it with a screaming mouse sound effect so I was aware that work was needed in the form […]

Enjoyed watching some great racing in the last of the series at Oulton Park tonight!

Great to see two former runners , both coming into bike racing late in their competitive years coming out top in the over 60s competition . The most consistent over 60s being awarded the Dave Astles memorial trophy !

This year the winner being Geoff Rawlinson twice British age related marathon champion beating Alan Forrester winner on 2 previous occasions of the series. Great riding gents!.

Blummin windy race tonight, spent most of it on my drops to be as small as possible!! I only dared take a drink once and when I did I squirted so much in my mouth it came out of my nose 😤 !! It still stings...

Anyway, thanks to everyone for organising such a great series. The whole event is a credit to the club!

Hi folks.
The Giordana kit has left the factory now and is due in later this week. For those with money still to pay I’ve sent you a reminder on message / email.
I’ll post on here once it’s in to sort collections.
As we will also be keeping a kit stock I will find a way to keep a kit list online so you know what we have and how much it is - including any existing Bioracer and all the club socks we have too!
