Loggerheads on sugar

All things considered (Llanberis panic training), it was a fairly small contingent at the Rugby Club on Sunday morning. The weather was really mild compared to recent weeks so it was set to be a nice clear day on the bike for all, with just a bit of wind to contend with. Having ridden 85 […]

5 go up Mam Tor

Jim, Geoff, Stuart, Christine, Mark, Kevin and me were at the gates this morning at 9.30. Destination, the No Car Cafe. I haven’t actually established whether, if you were to turn up in a car, you would be refused. Anyway, it’s a great place. This was a ride we did the week before Wild Wales last […]

A Cycling play in Northwich! got to b...

Cheshire Rural Touring Arts have leant their support to another cycling play. [those who were at ‘Beryl’ last year at Tarvin were not disappointed]. This time we take on the mighty ‘Ventoux’ and it’s local being at the Lion Salt Works, Northwch.. Tickets are going to go fast so get in early if your thinking […]

Crazy 8 in Tittesworth

The cry on social media was, ‘9.30 meet to get to Ruthin in preparation for the looming Llanberis’. Jim, Jules, Phil, Iain, Stuart, Kevin, Geoff and me arrived at the appointed hour in the refreshing 3 degree temperature. A discussion followed about the heavy snow and poor conditions reported in north Wales. A quick vote was […]

Manchester Regional Track League

MRTL 10th February In order to satisfy my nerdiness i thought that a record of results would be a good idea in order to see if i am improving, getting worse or staying the same. To that end a points system has been devised; there are 5 events each meeting, a win in an gives […]

Club Dinner 2017

Yes, we’ve had it, and a great evening to chat to each other in relaxed surroundings with a drink and some food. Some prizewinners were surprised at their awards, but all were well deserved. Well done all.

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...

Also, 2017 Club Dinner – Saturday 4th February 2017. 7:00 for 7:30pm. This year we’re at the Winnington Park Recreation Club (not the rugby club, so turn up at […]

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 […]

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 […]

Many of you will know that Mark Adshead had a big off yesterday. He was taken to Aintree Hospital in Liverpool [the NW Chest injury centre] were he remains.
He has a multiple fractured collarbone, Multiple fractured ribs and yesterday had a punctured lung. I have spoken to his wife earlier and she reports that he is as well as can be expected but obviously has to deal with the pain and discomfort he has. But he is in the right place.. I will pass on any messages to his wife.
