Roller Racing at the club!

A great night held on 31st January, and I’ve had to add a new category to the post types for it! A few pictures below, some courtesy and Andy & Karen Boyle…

Manchester Regional Track League

MRTL 3rd February, Another week, another hammering. A deliberately heavy week this week lead to lumpy legs last night, at least that’s my excuse. It makes me jealous to see the teenagers at the track, facebooking, chatting, not paying any attention then getting on their bikes and flying. I on the other hand have to go […]

North Mancunian Misery.

North Mancunian Misery.

It’s been a while since I’ve written an off-road blog shamefully, particularly when viewed against the journalistic volume and quality of the road oriented contributors here abouts. I’ll make an excuse that our mountain bike jaunts are best illustrated with shots of a train of colourful riders swooping down dusty trails into dramatic vistas, but […]

Don’t forget – Roller Nig...

A plea for flaps

Saturday training ride 28th January 2017 – a short report This morning was ‘warmer’ than it has been, by my reckoning it was 5 degrees when i set off. Of course with the balmy conditions we get rain so that’s nice, something to cool you off. The ride out to Hatchmere was in to a […]

Blaze Farm, Algreave, Henbury, take y...

A chilly and damp 1 degree this morning didn’t stop the teenage boy I saw while on the way to the club. Football shorts and a cotton tee-shirt. Not tucked in. Bonkers. I on the other hand had breathed in the morning air several times before settling on the right combination of garments. At the […]

Local Audax, Great Scenery and a bit ...

Dear All, Over the last four years I have run two bike rides from Winsford “Scouting Mam Tor 200K” and the “Edale Run 160K” I had several of your club members come along for the ride. I had great feedback from the rides so I’m running them again this year on the 12th March. The […]

Decisions, decisions

One of the joys of parenthood is the continual stream of children’s birthday parties there are to attend. The pleasures of standing around for 2 hours in some godforsaken hole with a load of other delighted clockwatching parents cannot be overstated. Today I was lucky enough to have a party at 12.00. So it was […]

Track nights update 2017

Before the brief report – the next, and last track night for this winter is on Thursday 9th February 2017. It’s in the calendar, get it in your diaries, and contact Nick to register. This Thursday’s track night was well attended with a mix of club members and invited non-club members. All had a great […]

Short, pacey, modern pottery confusio...

First club run of 2017, and many eager faces appeared at the busy club. The long run disappeared with vigour, heading for Prees, and we were to head for Tilly’s at Bunbury. It get’s pretty busy at the cafe on a Sunday, so we decided to have a more direct run out. Conversation was quickly […]

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
