Summertrees 3 Jan

Summertrees 3 Jan

A great turnout of 13 riders and a couple of new faces despite the freezing weather. This is the rambling route which Matthew recorded with his GPS http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Summertrees-and-Delamere. We headed off to Moulton then over the Weaver to the Whitegate way and some lanes and tracks to Little Budworth. More tracks through the woods near […]

Sunday 23rd November 2008

On waking up to pouring rain I nearly opted out of today’s run: but I’m glad I didn’t, we had a great ride. A fairly tortuous decision-making process at the start resolved itself with Martin leading one group going to Two Mills (the planned route to Loggerheads was deemed over-ambitious given the wind and rain) […]

Long Mynd Sat 6 Dec

Long Mynd Sat 6 Dec

What a fantastic day! Clear blue skies, great tracks, good company, pub lunch, brilliant views and delicious cake. Rob Petit, Andy Beswick, Eleanor Underhill, Gareth Thomas, his friend Nick and me covered about 25 miles including the ascent of the Mynd 3 times. We took the road the 2 miles to All Stretton where we […]

Llandegla 1 November & Delamere 15 Nov

Next off-road ride is Delamere Sat 15 Nov. Meet at the station cafe at 10am. All abilities welcome as […]

Llandegla Sat 1st Nov

Meet at the mountainbike centre car park at 10am. This is the best of the man made trails in the world ( well – any that I have ridden). All abilities welcome – see www.coedllandegla.com for more info and bike hire. Great cafe and a selection of routes from complete beginner to expert. Remember, off […]

Today’s run was a steady circuitous ride in Autumn sunshine, efficiently led by Richard Munro, in the absence of Richard Calder who had an argument with some tarmac after a night on the tiles with Chris Latter. Best wishes to Richard C for a speedy recovery – maybe this will finally dissuade him from his […]

Run Sunday 5th October to Connah’s Quay and Chester. A good turn out despite the fact that it had poured down all night. On arrival at the club the absence of an appointed run leader became evident. Leadership vacuums are always fun to watch – who would fill the void? Everyone avoids eye contact in […]

Meerbrook (Tittesworth Resevoir)

Meerbrook (Tittesworth Resevoir)

Not the cafe I’d planned to go to but the nearest one which could handle the numbers! Once again a fantastic turnout of 28 riders at the Legion which allowed us to split into two decent sized groups. One group for the long hilly ride and one for a shorter flatter route, this arrangement works […]

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
Spectator Entrance fee: £4 (Children under 16 free - must be accompanied by an adult) for further information visit www.queenviccx.co.uk
