Club 10’s – Round 3 – 23rd May 2018

Yet another cracking night with several PB’s.  Quickest man was Paul Connor with a his first of many 25mph rides recording 23:49.  Emily also stepped up another gear tonight on her meteoric rise to stardom with a stonking 24:40 for 2nd quickest overall out of 24 riders.  Emily will go well under the hour for […]

Club 10 – Second Round – 16th May 2018

A great turnout for the 10 this week on a sunny but cool evening.  Good to see a few new (and some old), faces setting benchmark times for the Guardian cup including: Rob Dacey, Darren Johnson, Luke Curbishley, Colin Latter, Carl Hitchenson and most notably 15 year old Sam Jones.  Your rides from next week […]

Club 10 – 1st Round – 9th May 2018

Members were clearly put off by the rain that started early evening on Wednesday as only 7 riders took part.  Shame as it stopped raining for the event so everybody who did ride got away with it.  Incidentally skin is waterproof (says he who also didn’t ride)! Roadworks on the A50 forced a change to […]

Club 10 – Practice 10 – 2nd May 2018

A very windy night produced some surprisingly good times on Wednesday.  Regulars will know that a strong wind directly behind on Penny’s Lane is a good sign as you get a 2 mile kick start followed by mostly cross winds, with very little head wind.  We had a few first time riders and all went […]

Club 10 – 2-up – 25th April 2018

  Wednesday saw the start of our popular club 10’s on the Lach Dennis course.  The weather was cool with showers scudding across the skies but fortunately skirting around the course on either side.  18 riders supported the event, some riding solo and others as pairs.  The winning pair was Steve Malkin & Paul Connor […]

Lies, lies, lies and more lies

My Mum, bless her, has bad osteoporosis, she is shrinking by the day and has been doing so for years and years. Nearly 4 years ago my elder sister insisted that, as Mum’s condition was not good, we should all get tested while we were still young enough to give the professionals time to sort […]

Meeting point 22nd April

Hi, For one week only we will be meeting in a different location. There is a very large event taking place at the rugby club. We will be meeting opposite the COOP at Hartford shops on Chester Road.

Big butties and badgers, and cycling

Thought I’d better drag my backside out of bed and onto  bike for a change, so I did. The usual suspects at the club, and a new face, out with us to see what this club cycling lark is all about. We were to ride a nice, relatively easy short ride to Dunham Massey, Derek […]

To 25 or not to 25…. that is th...

Not to 25 as it turned out. The Withington Wheelers 25 was, at the last minute, shortened to a 10, due to roadworks at the Ollerton crossroads, complete with temporary traffic lights. Nevertheless, a TT was held, and we had 2 of our riders out today. Andy Milligan, who consistently batters out excellent times, was opening […]

Time to TT – Club 10s 2018!

Well, it’s nearly time to start time-trialling in our club 10s. If you are a member and haven’t tried a time trial, why not give it a go? You are up against the clock, and yourself, to see how fast you can cycle around an undulating course of 10 miles in length. There is no […]

Prees. (Never trust a man with a load...

Those of you that have had the misfortune to read any of my previous meandering missives will be aware that I have harped on in the past about club runs staying together and everyone looking after each other. So it is that I apologise unreservedly to the poor soul that we dropped on Norley Hill. […]

Llanberis 2018. A game of two halves.

Well, if there is one thing for sure, it is that you cannot predict the British weather far in advance. It was a cold start to the weekend. Various shivering bodies turned up at the club, muttering in huddles about what was to come. All was well as they set off, and all the way […]

EMILY WINS AT TAMESIDE!!!!!... both went to the Tameside crit event tonight... 7 ladies entered mixture of cat 2-4. Emily did her fair share on the front. Jumped off a couple of times but the group did pull back. Emily won the prime at lap 10. Group stayed together until 2 laps when Emily jumped and stayed away to take the win!! As for me I am awful at cornering as expected... lost everyone after every corner then managed to get back on. Finished a miserable 4th but great experience and at least I now know what to work on over winter.... 🚴🏼‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️ Emily Jane Martin ... ’Expand’’Hide’

Hi, I am interested in coming to cycle with you, is there a beginners group or one that isn’t quite as fast to gauge what ability I am at and if I am quick enough at all. I can do about 30 miles comfortably but would like to join a club to improve my pace. ... ’Expand’’Hide’

I know what an Altruistic bunch some of you are, and I have benefited from this. As my kit rail will testify. However I’m looking for cold hard cash for the following items.

- Michelin pro 4 service course.
700 x 25
Too wide for my Dave Lloyd, lots of wear left.
£25 the pair.

- Campagnolo Khamsin front wheel, smooth and true. (No QR skewer). Wear holes still visible.
£20
