VTTA National Championship 10 mile TT

Manchester and NW hosted the VTTA [Veterans Time Trial Association] National Championship 10 mile TT , on the J2/1, Months Heath to Knutsford Road.  It was interesting that I could hear many woeful complaints after riders had finished, about the ‘sporting nature of the course’ and the’ very rough road surface’..  people came from all […]

Tour Series – It’s back, ...

It’s been a while, but the Tour Series returns to Cheshire this year as many already know, and WVCC is involved for its return. The events for the day and the pro races are happening in the centre of Northwich. We therefore need some volunteers from the club to help us with a corporate relay […]

Withington Wheelers – 25m TT (J...

So today was the official start of my TT season. Cheshire TT courses are renowed for not being the quickest, so I was surprised when the start sheet came out with an enormous field of 150 names on it, in addition there was a further event before hand for Novice riders which included a further […]

You can all look forward to long days in the saddle and earlier meeting times as from this Sunday 09:30 (26th March), but don’t forget to put your clocks forward, otherwise you’ll turn up late and miss the ride! Also, after some members who attend the long run asked to start even earlier, as from […]

I’ve just had a club member on who had booked a twin room for the Hotel in Llanberis this weekend, [same hotel we are going to but not booked thru me] He was going to ride and his girlfriend was going to drive.. but now they can’t go. If anybody is thinking about it they […]

Flash

During last Sunday’s epic, only for the brave and strong ride, I became aware that my wheels were in need of attention. The relentless freezing rain had got in to the hubs and washed away the lubrication, replacing it with a screaming mouse sound effect so I was aware that work was needed in the form […]

You will all by now have had your email from Jim with the finer details and arrangements, now here is the route, followed by a few key notes about the weekend. Please read them. Saturday Route: Llanberis 18th March 2017 – Day 1 – Hartford […]

Super Snowy Loggerheads

With a looming Llanberis I fully expected a huge and heaving contingent this morning, dozens of excited and eager racing snakes looking to pile in some hilly miles, cyclists chomping at the bars to get some last minute distance in. Five. That was it, 5 poor unfortunate souls shivering in the porch of the rugby club. Including […]

The Curse of The Nova 2up!

The Curse of The Nova 2up!

Some of you may recall my previous experience of this event when I last rode it 3 years with Dave Fearon, my tri bar fell out, so I spent much if the ride with it bouncing off the front wheel. I started the morning off by actually getting my TT bike down for the first […]

Saturday Training Ride 25 February

I have a heavy week this coming week and so opted to not go on the hilly Saturday ride and headed straight for Hatchmere instead. From what I heard there were no takers at the club for the hilly ride anyway today. Llanberis must be in the air as by the time we set off, at […]

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’
