The challenge to find the Rickshaw, e...

Al had a good idea. As this year’s Children In Need Rickshaw Challenge was to pass within a hair’s breadth of us (well as near as Chelford anyway), Al thought it would be good and indeed different for us to ride down to see if we could cheer on the challenge, which was to ride […]

Long Sunday Rides

I’m aware that not everyone reads Cycling Weekly so just thought i’d share this. Hits the nail on the head in so many ways: Dr Hutch: Revealing the real motivation behind Sunday morning bike rides The weekend ride is a sacred ritual, but what motivates us to haul ourselves out of bed on a Sunday […]

To the Jovial Lookout with the BFG

As soon as I left the house I realised I had put on the wrong base layer (that’s a vest to the older generation). I just had a lightweight one on but as it was only 4 degrees a thicker one would have been in order. I quietly shivered most of the day. Destination today […]

Manchester Regional Track League 3rd ...

After last night’s Weaver Valley track night my legs were decidedly heavy and I went in to my first track league of the season with some trepidation particularly so as this was round 7 and so many other riders would have been warmed up through the previous rounds. I was however buoyed by the fact […]

Long Ride to Loggerheads. Or not.

As years have gone by it has become more and more apparent that as I get older, if I leave the bike alone for any period of time my fitness evaporates like it was never there in the first place. So it was on Sunday. I did quite well in the National RR Championships 9 […]

Clocks change this weekend!!

Don’t forget now will you? At 02:00 on the 29th October (early Sunday morning when you are fast asleep), the clocks will go back an hour! This is probably fine if you use a smart phone or computer as they’ll probably set themselves. Best to check though! You really don’t want to turn up an […]

Club Kit

Club Kit

As some of you are aware, after 4 great years running the club kit, due to increased work commitments, I have decided to stand down. Emily Martin has kindly agreed to take up the mantel, I am sure you will all agree, she will do a great job.  I will be doing a hand over […]

Club runs

Hi, For those that don’t know, I’ve now taken over the role as runs captain from Al. Al has done a fantastic job over the last 10 years so no pressure on me then!! Big thanks to Al but he’s going nowhere!! He will still be leading the short run when he’s out. I don’t […]

Fifty miler TT

Finally found some time to write a blog about my fifty miler TT at the weekend… So, in an effort to keep my much loved ladies BAR trophy I knew I needed to complete a 50 this year – a distance I always dread because it feels like a forever sat in a TT position. […]

Pimbo (Grimbo). in the rain

I got up about 6am for the Harry Middleton Road race 2/3/4  at Pimbo in skelmersdale  just to  make sure I was awake and  all my gear was in order.  I got to the HQ  (social club) at 7.45am   and I can tell you the club was like  a throw back to the 80’s […]
