Delamere off-road 5th Nov. 2016

Lovely ride in the forest today with just Steve Marlow, Mark Gavin (on his first WVCC off road ride) and me. Matthew and Andy Beswick couldn’t make it as they were on course clearing duty for next Saturday’s cyclocross at Greenbank. Fantastic autumn colours on a bright, crisp morning. We set off up Old Pale […]

It’s cold and dark outside, the velodrome is warm and dry! Gain some track skills, get fitter, add it to your  winter training! This is the perfect opportunity to get some excellent training and experience with the club. We have a British Cycling coach that will train you and give you probably the best 2 hour […]

Tigger and the Steam Train

Saturday morning saw a damp 12 degrees but as the day went on it warmed up and dried out to become a very pleasant, low wind, autumnal day. The crossroads at Hatchmere were positively busy as Jim D, Spanish Jed, Keith, Kevan, Eleanor, Jimmy, Ewart, Alex, Ben, Steve, Paddy and Me assembled in varying degrees of […]

Clocks change this weekend!!!

Don’t forget now will you? At 02:00 on the 30th 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 […]

The no-photo, no-sliced bread, no egg...

Not as fast or feisty as the long run, today’s ride was to got to the Candle Factory at Burwardsley. I didn’t count how many of us there were, but around 20 of us remained for the short ride at the club as the long ride departed. It was a fine day for a ride. […]

Three punctures, feisty Kris Z and a ...

Today was a great day to be out on the bike; clear skies and fairly dry roads. Just about perfect aside from the strong headwind. My theory is that the winter wind is harder to get through as it is colder and hence denser. Is there any weight to this? The long run was not […]

With the benefit of hindsight….

With the benefit of hindsight….

…on Saturday 15th October we had what was nearly a perfect club MTB ride. I’d found a route on the Internet around Rivington Pike and the attendant reservoirs, which are just outside Horwich in Lancashire that looked like it was spot on for a sensible day out. Nice distance, a reasonable amount of climbing, not too […]

Winter Track Nights Update – an...

Inspired by Laura Trott and Jason Kenny? Need to kick start your winter training? This is the perfect opportunity to get some excellent training and experience with the club. We have a British Cycling coach that will train you and give you probably the best 2 hour workout you’ve ever had, for far less money […]

The non club run club run.

When is a club run not a club run? What are the numbers needed to make the ride quorate and not just another ride? Is 2 enough? Rain was falling steadily when I left home this morning and by the time I arrived at the club the volume had increased somewhat. Imagine my delight at 28 […]

Wild Wales Challenge – Trophy Award

August Bank holiday seems such a long time ago now, but for those who rode the Wild Wales challange, the best kept secret in cycling, it will be remembered as a glorious, if challenging day. Yesterday we were awarded the coveted Harold Kewish Trophy for the club team with most finishers, WVCC had twenty five […]

Weaver Valley CC Autumn Road Race, ri...

Sunday morning, a cold crisp day, just about perfect conditions for my first road race since July 2012. The six months I’ve been back on the bike have seen me progress from ‘fat middle aged man’ to ‘middle aged man’. Not bad really, you have to start somewhere and I had done as much as […]

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
