CSP Summer Crit – a first try a...

So, Mr Ady Japp has been daft enough to provide me with blog access! Though I promise to use it for the greater good of cycling and not to bang on about food – as delicious as nachos may be. As most of you know, I’ve spent the year steadily upping the racing I do […]

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, […]

Alpine mountain biking – yikes!

Alpine mountain biking – yikes!

When I booked us both onto a cross country Alpine MTB week (with a company called Trail Addiction, in the French Alps near Les Arcs) I had the idea we’d be riding on beautiful contouring trails, through Alpine wild flower meadows, under snow-capped mountain peaks. The chap I liaised with assured me that the riding […]

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 […]

Pendle Forest L015 10 – 30th Ju...

Pendle Forest L015 10 – 30th July 2016

I do not generally enter many open 10’s, indeed the last one I entered was March 14, however, inspired by Jim Williams performance in Hull a few weeks back, and my wish to obtain a sub 22:30 to obtain the senior gold standard, I entered this a few weeks back. As It happens, I actually […]

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 […]

Castleton Carousel.

Castleton Carousel.

‘Why is it called the Castleton Carousel?’ Nick asked me as we pushed up the fifth tasty climb of the day. My thought was it went round and round in circles, (one large, one much smaller included for a stupendous final decent back into Castleton) but as we were approching 4000ft of climbing his suggestion […]

Picos de Europa cycle tour May 2016

Bikes aren’t just training tools for battering each other with. They are a fantastic mode of transport for exploring new environments.  So, after a shortish tour around Lyon and the Vercors region of France last year, Ann and I decided to make a trip to the spectacular Picos de Europa mountains in northern Spain.  A […]

WVCC Open 25 mile Time Trial – ...

Open 25 mile Time Trial 2pm on Saturday 6th August 2015. HQ: Cranage Village Hall. Hi all, 1st call for marshals and helpers for our open 25 time trial. We need 25+ for the event to cover: junction marshals, timekeeper assistants, refreshments, signing on results etc, …so basically the more offers of help the better! […]

Helping set course today for @WeaverValleyCC for @nwcca race tomorrow. I hope the wind dies down! 🌪 pic.twitter.com/c06JEpWqY1
