Dukinfield CC 50 – 6th May 2017

Dukinfield CC 50 – 6th May 2017

This first 50 of the Year in Cheshire has an amazing history.  It has been held every Year since 1928 and the Dukinfield Cyclists’ Club which is one of the oldest clubs in Britain was already 43 years old that year.  That first event was won by W.Ward of the Stretford Wheelers with a time […]

WVCC Club 10s – Practice 10 ...

Wow was it windy tonight!! A tough night for all, with an unusual head wind off the start and indeed all the way to Toft and the turn back into Middlewich Road for the last 3.something miles! Tonight was about a solo practice and for setting a handicap time for this year’s 10s (unless you […]

Ron Sant 110km Audax 2017 – a v...

..to report on another great Audax. Derek does a great job with this Audax year on year, and we were presented with a good route, (starting with toast and a brew at the club), taking in familiar lanes around Cheshire, the Wirral, over the border into North Wales and back again. The first third of […]

M&DLCA & East Lancs RC 10’s – 29th April 2017

Due to popular demand (from Jim Duffy as he hates writing reports), I am posting my first TT report of the Year.  Jim posted the others because this year I started racing much later than usual due to various holidays and annoying things like work getting in the way of my cycling. The afternoon started […]

Cannock Chase. Bloody ace.

Cannock Chase. Bloody ace.

A guest blog here from Paul Harding, following a brilliant, (if busy) trip to Cannock. It’s been a while since I’ve returned from an MTB ride and thought, ‘I really must dust my bike’ 🙂 April’s MTB away day was a visit to Birches Valley, Cannock Chase. With a prompt 10am start on the cards […]

WVCC Club 10s – Gents 2-Up R...

A windy night, but at least it was dry! There was a dark cloud looming in the sky, but it looked as though we’d avoid it bar the odd spot of precipitation. Seven pairs lined up and four solo riders, and thus, this year’s club 10s began… Results below. Next week, the setting of handicaps […]

Dave Astles Cheshire Series – E...

  This series, in memory of the late Dave Astles, brings the start of the TLI evening events, and just as it did last year, we saw a build of 4 seasons in one day with Sun, Rain, Hail, Sleet, Wind & Cold change a number of times throughout the day. As it turned out, […]

Sunny Potter to Loggerheads

Beautiful spring sunshine and very little breeze; ideal ingredients for a deluge of long-run takers. Flooded with people, masses were expected. Well in fact Paul, Paul, Tigger, Stu, Craig and Me were the sole volunteers. A cheap version of the firemen in Trumpton but with worse hats. All raring to go we were though, up […]

Mid Shropshire Wheelers 25 . 16/4/17

Well, last time I raced over these roads it was in the WCTTA 12hr event in August..Oh what a difference 6 months can make.. It was a early start for the WVCC boys [there were just 2 of us to face the timekeeper] as I was picking Andy Wooley up in Weaverham at 0700. Bikes […]

Sunday Run to Holt

Either the new long run start time has not got through to everyone or people were put off by what the might weather might have been doing as it was supposed to be fiercely wet and windy today. As it was we were a very compact group at the rugby club this morning. Never mind […]

Macc Wheelers 25 – J2/9

I dont think I thought it through when I entered this event! I came home yesterday from a great 10 Days in Majorca, riding in general, every other day completing 470 miles and over 26000 ft of climbing. It dawned on me, as much as I wanted too, that it would not be a good […]

Sunny Sunday meander with a few lumps

I approached today’s club run with more than a little trepidation; aside from the Llanberis weekend, the last month has been pretty barren with regard to miles, in fact I have not touched my bike for the last 3 weeks. Anyway, whether I ended up a complete wreck by the end, a gorgeous early April day […]

Great to hear that @WeaverValleyCC Oulton Park Series was a success and they are planning to run it again next year #useitorloseit

I hope it's ok to ask for some advice on here? What is the best way to prepare yourself for hill climbing. I'm cycling a 50 mile route next weekend in North Wales which has a climb of 4700 feet in total. I'm ok with the distance, but think the most I've climbed over that distance is 3200 feet. ... ’Expand’’Hide’
