Delamere 16th May

Delamere 16th May

Eleanor shows us all how to do it! Eight of us enjoyed a bright morning around the forest, topped off with a race up Pale Heights which Gareth won. I’ve been coaching him on the niceties of racing and he’s a quick learner. After tucking in behind Kevan and Jonti into the headwind, he sensed […]

Sunday 17th May

Sunday 17th May

After a long absence I finally got out on a Sunday run. The weather was not bad as I left Bunbury and cycled to Hartford with Chris Latter and I thought the summer bike and shorts was the right choice. As usual these days there was a good turnout and the long run to Chirk […]

Delamere Sat 16 May

Delamere Sat 16 May

Meet at the station cafe at 10am for a couple of hours or more of fun on the abundant single track. I bet we can show you some new places in the forest. All abilities and non-members welcome to come along and give it a try. We regroup frequently so won’t leave anyone to get […]

Weds 13th May – a French Letter

Weds 13th May – a French Letter

A welcome birthday boy return for Richard Heywood: the title of this blog is his idea as he reckoned the repartee today was so good (obscure I know but that’s Richard for you!). Gary’s under 7s joke: a man goes into a bar with a newt on his shoulder, and asks for a pint for […]

TLI Lower Withington Tuesday 12th May...

TLI Lower Withington Tuesday 12th May – with video!

Thanks to Jed for the video, at the bottom of this article! After rain on week 1 and a diesel spillage on week 2 (we found out this was the result of an accident involving Alex Ferguson’s grandchildren), the only hazard tonight was a low sun and a strong wind – but no complaints, it […]

Sunday 10th May to Two Mills

Sunday 10th May to Two Mills

From Gary’s under 7s joke book: I rang NHS advice yesterday because the guy in the desk next to me at work had just come back from Mexico, and I was worried about swine flu – but all I got on the line was crackling. As for my colleague, he’s come out in rashers. For […]

Wednesday 6th May to Chester

Wednesday 6th May to Chester

Thanks to Claire for this post…. The day began overcast and windy. There was no chance to sit in the bunch and nap, as our route took us over some draggy slopes through Manley to Mickle Trafford. After that, the ride settled down to a brisk ( for me!) but chatty pace, as we rode […]

Lee Quarry Race 4th May

Lee Quarry Race 4th May

Thanks to Matthew Hornby for the following report and well done for completing the event. Picture above was taken the previous Saturday on one of the rocky sections. Monday 4th May started bright and early for Derek and myself – well actually it was very early and really quite damp, a little dispiriting considering the […]

TLI Tuesday 5th May

TLI Tuesday 5th May

Another wet night, this week’s numero uno hazard was a diesel spillage covered by lots of orange sand, not something you’d choose to ride over when trying to keep up with a bunch riding at >25 mph round a bend, but luckily this week no-one crashed. Another good turnout for WVCC, Craig and Dave riding […]

TLI Crash Update

TLI Crash Update

Thanks to Richard Munro for this update on Tuesday night’s crash… As some of you are aware, Andy Poole and I were involved in a crash at the TLI race at Lower Withington last week. Andy and I took part in the under 50s race which, on a wet and dark evening, was cut down […]

Lee Quarry 2nd May

Lee Quarry 2nd May

Andy gets some air at Lee Quarry – between Rawtnestall and Bacup in Lancashire. They’ve made a great job creating a 5km “red” loop (Andy, Gareth and I did 5 circuits) with an additional 2km “black”(bonkers) bit for those who like checking out the ground with their faces. The red is great, quite a heavy […]

Wednesday Wrinklies to Malpas

Wednesday Wrinklies to Malpas

What do you call a mushroom at a disco? Fun guy. If you want to hear jokes as bad as this, come out on a Wednesday ride. If you don’t, you’re better riding on your own, or alternatively just don’t ride next to Gary Brown! 17 riders, yet another lovely sunny day, beautiful spring countryside […]

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’
