Hit the North mountain bike race

Hit the North mountain bike race

Four of us made the start of this year’s race (Ross missed out) but Kev Underhill had the misfortune to snap his chain fairly early on. It was a well run event with over 150 riders racing round a varied course with everything you would expect for mtb or cyclocross – a bit of a […]

Lakes Weekend 20/21 March

Lakes Weekend 20/21 March

This is the top of Skiddaw which we might do weather permitting. We’ll certainly take in the fast, flowing Whinlatter Forest trails and some of the superb bridletracks around the Keswick area. I’ve booked Stybeck Farm Camping Barn at £12 each if we fill it. See http://www.stybeckfarm.co.uk/accommod.htm for a max of 10 people and we […]

"Just to Two Mills…"

"Just to Two Mills…"

Well how hard can a ride to Two Mills be, I thought to myself as 11 of us set off from Hartford? I should’ve known as soon as Alan Kemp decided to take the lead and direct us over towards his favourite training grounds. Down to the ice cream farm and already we were down […]

Well at least some of us managed to get some miles in

Well at least some of us managed to get some miles in, despite the covering of snow and post-club-dinner-hangovers! Kev and I had a great ride on our mountain bikes up past Vale Royal Abbey, along the Whitegate Way (the dinky bits of singletrack along the side of the main path) then through the forest […]

It was wet but at least we were out…

Well at least we managed a ride, after all that snow and ice, but it was of the very wet variety, the sort where you don’t want to be either 1. the rider without the mudguards because everyone tuts at you or 2. the rider behind the rider without the mudguards because you get diluted […]

Gisburn Forest……….The Big Push!

Our first visit to Gisburn Forest had been eagerly awaited and the high turnout showed as much. Nick, Matt H, Kevin C, Eleanor, Andy, Derek, John, Rob and Richard made the journey north wondering what delights might await them.We knew it could still be snowy, so it was no surprise when we rolled into the […]

Gisburn Forest 16 Jan

Gisburn Forest 16 Jan

A new area for us to visit about 1.5 hrs drive away. Fantastic purpose built red and blue graded trails. We have had good reports about this place and there are plenty of other tracks to tackle, if we get bored, across the Trough of Bowland. See http://explore.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/os_routes/show/9918 Meet 10am at Cocklet Hill Car Park […]

Winter Wonderland 9 Jan

Winter Wonderland 9 Jan

Great idea to go for a ride in the snow Kevin! Four of us enjoyed a superb ride with no mishaps or falls. This was the zig-zag route up Pale Heights. We kept off the roads as much as possible. A quick coffee at Delamere then lunch at Summertrees. Lots of the usual tracks and […]

Enjoyed watching some great racing in the last of the series at Oulton Park tonight!

Great to see two former runners , both coming into bike racing late in their competitive years coming out top in the over 60s competition . The most consistent over 60s being awarded the Dave Astles memorial trophy !

This year the winner being Geoff Rawlinson twice British age related marathon champion beating Alan Forrester winner on 2 previous occasions of the series. Great riding gents!.

Blummin windy race tonight, spent most of it on my drops to be as small as possible!! I only dared take a drink once and when I did I squirted so much in my mouth it came out of my nose 😤 !! It still stings...

Anyway, thanks to everyone for organising such a great series. The whole event is a credit to the club!

Hi folks.
The Giordana kit has left the factory now and is due in later this week. For those with money still to pay I’ve sent you a reminder on message / email.
I’ll post on here once it’s in to sort collections.
As we will also be keeping a kit stock I will find a way to keep a kit list online so you know what we have and how much it is - including any existing Bioracer and all the club socks we have too!
