Llanberis 2017 – 18th & 19...

Well, ladies and gents, it’s nearly here. Not Christmas; Llanberis. You will all by now have had your email from Jim with the finer details and arrangements, now here is the route, followed by a few key notes about the weekend. Please read them. Saturday Route: Llanberis 18th March 2017 – Day 1 – Hartford […]

Super Snowy Loggerheads

With a looming Llanberis I fully expected a huge and heaving contingent this morning, dozens of excited and eager racing snakes looking to pile in some hilly miles, cyclists chomping at the bars to get some last minute distance in. Five. That was it, 5 poor unfortunate souls shivering in the porch of the rugby club. Including […]

The Curse of The Nova 2up!

The Curse of The Nova 2up!

Some of you may recall my previous experience of this event when I last rode it 3 years with Dave Fearon, my tri bar fell out, so I spent much if the ride with it bouncing off the front wheel. I started the morning off by actually getting my TT bike down for the first […]

Saturday Training Ride 25 February

I have a heavy week this coming week and so opted to not go on the hilly Saturday ride and headed straight for Hatchmere instead. From what I heard there were no takers at the club for the hilly ride anyway today. Llanberis must be in the air as by the time we set off, at […]

The Wild Wales Challenge 2017

Here we go again,  this is our chance to retain the Harold Kewish Trophy, last year we finished with 25 riders, entries open on 1st March. This is advance notification for those clubs that have entered 4 or more riders in previous Wild Wales Challenges, organised by Cycling UK (formerly Merseyside CTC). This years event […]

Sunday 26th long run

Sunday 26th long run

    Change of plan from calendar. With LLanberis around the corner a hilly one would be good. Plan is to go to Llangollen and have lunch in the Butter Crust café. Then tackle the Horseshoe Pass on the way home. Great climb if you’ve not done it before!!  

Loggerheads on sugar

All things considered (Llanberis panic training), it was a fairly small contingent at the Rugby Club on Sunday morning. The weather was really mild compared to recent weeks so it was set to be a nice clear day on the bike for all, with just a bit of wind to contend with. Having ridden 85 […]

5 go up Mam Tor

Jim, Geoff, Stuart, Christine, Mark, Kevin and me were at the gates this morning at 9.30. Destination, the No Car Cafe. I haven’t actually established whether, if you were to turn up in a car, you would be refused. Anyway, it’s a great place. This was a ride we did the week before Wild Wales last […]

A Cycling play in Northwich! got to b...

Cheshire Rural Touring Arts have leant their support to another cycling play. [those who were at ‘Beryl’ last year at Tarvin were not disappointed]. This time we take on the mighty ‘Ventoux’ and it’s local being at the Lion Salt Works, Northwch.. Tickets are going to go fast so get in early if your thinking […]

Crazy 8 in Tittesworth

The cry on social media was, ‘9.30 meet to get to Ruthin in preparation for the looming Llanberis’. Jim, Jules, Phil, Iain, Stuart, Kevin, Geoff and me arrived at the appointed hour in the refreshing 3 degree temperature. A discussion followed about the heavy snow and poor conditions reported in north Wales. A quick vote was […]

Manchester Regional Track League

MRTL 10th February In order to satisfy my nerdiness i thought that a record of results would be a good idea in order to see if i am improving, getting worse or staying the same. To that end a points system has been devised; there are 5 events each meeting, a win in an gives […]

Club Dinner 2017

Yes, we’ve had it, and a great evening to chat to each other in relaxed surroundings with a drink and some food. Some prizewinners were surprised at their awards, but all were well deserved. Well done all.

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
Spectator Entrance fee: £4 (Children under 16 free - must be accompanied by an adult) for further information visit www.queenviccx.co.uk
