Club Championship 25 – Results

Club Championship 25 – Results

Thanks to all who turned out to marshal and to Al and Syd for timekeeping and pushing off [the banter at the start was appreciated] We had another course switch due to traffic lights that appeared today, we used a course that Dave Fearon measured a couple of weeks back that is 2.5 times around […]

Club 10s – Guardian Cup Round 8 – 22nd July 2015 – and overall positions

This week it really is getting exciting, with Matt putting in a great time and creeping closer to Jim’s top score, Lee smashing the course record pretty much every week, and Jim going slower than the amazing 24:49 of last week. Jim Duffy also pitched up to TT this week and smashed it with a […]

Club 10s – Guardian Cup Round 7 – 15th July 2015 – and overall positions

With a breeze that seemed (at least to me) to offer little assistance, and on the road as though it might be a head wind in every direction, most of the field improved on their times. Jim especially excelled himself by going sub 25 for the first time in 25 years! After round 7, Jim has […]

Ferry Across the Mersey Ride 2015

The weather looked okay for today, with some variable reports of rain and the like at varying times of the day! A good sized group met at the swing bridge and two more joined us in Runcorn to make 17 as we took the usual route through Runcorn, over the bridge to Widnes, and then […]

Club 10s – Club 10 Mile TT Championship – 8th July 2015

Audlem RR – Big Bunch Sprint

Audlem RR – Big Bunch Sprint

Last night saw the third race in a series of four at Audlem, with Jim Duffyand Gerard Lacey flying the flag for WVCC as Alan Kemp was a DNS due to a bad back i believe and Ewart Howkins Marshalling. The race was switched to the shorter circuit due to road works on the usual […]

The race to Tatton – the return...

The race to Tatton – the return of the beginners ride…

The forecast looked good, with only a slight chance of showers, so the planned beginners ride was on. At 9:45, Al and I rode to the empty car park at the legion and patiently waited, pondering what might or might not be. We didn’t wait long before the first arrived and introduced themselves. Clearly we […]

Club 10s – Guardian Cup Round 6 – 1st July 2015 – and overall positions

A very hot and humid night had all the riders sweating away, and as the wind had dropped to a barely perceptible level, it was going to be a fast night for most.. Big winners were recorded with many more PBs again this week. Apart from the humans racing, Lee Suthard (who cannot be considered […]

Breeze Ride – Picnic at Pickmere

Breeze Bike Rides in Cheshire West and Chester Fingers crossed that the weather smiles on us for this ride, being as the theme is picnics! It’s a chance to bring out the basket bike, dust off the panniers or root out the rucksack and fill them full of goodies for a picnic overlooking the beautiful […]

Llandegla lightbulb moment.

Llandegla lightbulb moment.

Due to the expectancy of a low turn out, and the enthusiasm for the riding around the Howgills that was the plan for our away-day this month, we decided defer and just go for a blast round Llandegla forest. OK, so not the epic trek that was planned, but I’ve never come away from Llandegla […]

Dodleston, the return

Dodleston, the return

There was rain early in the day to wet the roads, so some of us came along ready with mudguards and overshoes just in case. Some did not. Skies had finished emptying the rain though, and we set off at a steady pace off towards Delamere. After the customary break at Hatchmere, we set off […]

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
