Delamere 21 March

Delamere 21 March

Here’s Ross showing us how to ride one of the narrow “bridges” he found on some singletrack, which was completely new to the rest of us, in Delamere Forest. Seven of us enjoyed the sunshine (until it disappeared) with the driest conditions so far this year. Lunch at the cafe, followed by a climb of […]

7 March Tegg’s Nose for 3 Shires Bridge

Seven of us set out from Tegg’s Nose country park a few miles E of Macclesfield for a challenging ride along tracks and back roads to Three Shire Heads where Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire meet. The bridge here crosses our very own River Dane just a mile or two from its source. Here we are […]

Delamere and the Packhorse Bridges

Delamere and the Packhorse Bridges

Ross led four more of us on a mystery tour taking in a remarkable number of new singletrack sections. From Delamere to the Whitegate Way, through to Oulton Park, Cotebrook, Primrose Hill then back over Old Pale for lunch back at our starting point. Mike had a disagreement with a rock, Eleanor had 2 punctures […]

Hit the North mountain bike race

Hey…see the video – courtesy of Alan’s Bikes http://www.hitthenorth.net/ I think the cameraman had a soft spot for El and Matthew! Looks a great course. Thanks to Matthew Hornby for the following report: The 7th of Feb was the date four intrepid members of the WVCC, (off road section) turned up at Phillips Park in […]

Polaris Challenge 13-14 June

Polaris Challenge 13-14 June

Take a look at this event http://www.polarischallenge.com/ and see if you fancy joining me to make up a team of 2. It’s basically endurance mountain biking orienteering?! This event is in the Peak District and would mean camping out Friday and Saturday nights. If we get lots of interest we could enter a number of […]

Delamere 17 Jan

Delamere 17 Jan

A bright but chilly morning saw 8 of us set off from the station cafe after tea and coffee. Up a winding track over Pale Heights to Primrosehill Wood where we hit the trails proper. The overnight rain had made it very slippy, especially over the tree roots which abound ( Steve leads Andy and […]

11 Jan Club run to Llandegla

11 Jan Club run to Llandegla

Thought I’d start a thread by creating a post, but it turns out it is on the bogblog not the Sunday runs blog – not as computer literate as I thought. Anyway, thanks to Alan and Ewart for getting us to the mountainbike centre at Llandegla through Holt, Rossett and Coedpoeth. Then back via a […]

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

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 […]

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’
