Clocks go back this weekend!

Don’t forget now will you? At 02:00 on the 25th 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 […]

Web site under construction!

As you will have noticed by landing here, the web site is undergoing a few cosmetic changes, and some non-cosmetic, but functionally critical, updates! Please bear with me whilst these updates are in progress. There will be changes to existing pages, social media feeds, look and feel for traditional browsing/mobile content and ultimately, the forum.

The Weaver Valley Autumn Road Race &#...

The Weaver Valley Autumn Road Race – a race organiser’s perspective…

2015 – Weaver Valley CC Autumn Road Race – 11 10 15 – Results Well in the end all went well, but this race was never straightforward. Cheshire Police decided some time ago to ban any races using laps of 10 miles or less, so our race was in doubt. Then Graham Gregory came up […]

Return to the Howgills

Return to the Howgills

We’d postponed this ride from September so a few of our fat tyre’d brethren could join us to revisit a popular ride from some years ago. In the end there was only Eleanor who had done this route before, with Tim, Iain, Jim and myself completing the gang. The usual start time of 10am suffered […]

A fast day on the hill – WVCC ‘Cat & Fiddle’ Hill Climb – Sunday 20th September 2015

Thanks must go out to all who helped in organising and running this year, and to all riders who enjoyed a clear and fast day this time round! Only 11 riders came off the start line before rider 12, Peter Tadros set the bar very high with a 20:00.2 ride (which gave him the Vets […]

WVCC ‘Cat & Fiddle’ ...

It’s back, and it’s this Sunday coming! A field of 111 riders on the start sheet (see below), will battle it out to see if they can beat last year’s winner Adam Kenway’s 19:34.9 or even Tejvan Pettinger’s 2013 record of 18:16.8 on the 6.5 mile course up to the finish line near the pub. […]

A fast ride to Ruthin and back

A fast ride to Ruthin and back

Well having dithered about whether I was up to doing the long run or not, I decided to go for it, encouraged by the fact that John Keen (he of the “I hit the wall” forum post from last weekend) was doing it too and he might prove a useful ally at the back. A […]

Video and vegetation.

The turnout on summer MTB rides can be a little low sometimes, what with only having a smaller pool of riders to begin with and holiday commitments, but it seems like most of the regulars were keen to make the most of a pleasant day and we started off with 11 riders, (three new, nice […]

The Wild Wales Challenge

The Wild Wales Challenge

A dozen or so WVCC riders rode in the Wild Wales Challenge today, enjoying/enduring a tough 85 mile route with no less than 7,500 feet of ascent. We started in Bala, climbed up to the Bwlch-y-Groes, then down and up and down and up and down and up to the outskirts of Barmouth, then Dolgellau, […]

The year has flown, and once again, it is time for our AGM. This year it will be held at our club at Winnington Park RFC, in the Bowden Room (the large room). The meeting will start promptly at 7:30pm. As it is an AGM, then all club members are invited to come along as […]

Too late for a blog…. so not a blog… and not a race… a club run.

Far too late to be posting a blog on a Wednesday about last Sunday’s run, so here are a couple of pictures instead. Of note though, was that it was a really nice day, and that we got there and back before the rain later on. Also of note is that Carol accuses me of […]

Final Fling 2015 – Results

Final Fling 2015 – Results

A damp and dark night met the 11 brave souls who turned up for the last club 10 of this year. Times in the main were generally slower, and conditions were not ideal as showers of rain blew across the course, hampering efforts to post the fastest of times. Lee, with appropriate grimace, buckled down […]
