Penmachno & Marin Trails 27 June

Penmachno & Marin Trails 27 June

Turned out nice eventually. This is the atmospheric view across to Moel Siabod from the Dragon’s Back on the Marin trail. Just Andy B and I tackled this one after Penmachno in the morning where we were joined by Alan Cook of BNECC. Despite the drizzle it was warm and great fun combining these two […]

A minimalist post

A minimalist post

About 12 of us rode to Audlem. A perfect day: sunny and warm, a cloudless sky, good company, brisk riding. Our sympathies went to all those of you out there who were stuck in an office!

Oulton Park 3

Oulton Park 3

This will be hard as I was a bit too busy chatting to take in much of what went on, (apologies) but here goes…lots of WVCC riders in the action… It was a warm night with a thunderstorm threatening – we had a few drops of rain as we started but it never developed into […]

A touch of romance…

A touch of romance…

Romance was in the air this week. The long group did a fabulous ride direct out to Algreave, up the Dunbars. Reaching the cafe were Kevan, Andy, Dennis, Kevin, Craig, and two new riders. This is where Romance Number One comes in – our two new riders, Sian and Dan, have just come back from […]

A wet Wednesday…

A wet Wednesday…

Thanks to Claire for this report… This Wednesday the rain fell and continued to fall. Only 8 intrepid riders ventured forth, and all agreed that they had pressing business and could only make a short run! I wonder why? Only Dennis had a cast iron excuse ( no pun intended) as he had to take […]

Oulton Park 2

Oulton Park 2

Another phenomenal turn out. This week we were split into three races, with the “oldies” going first. Dave Astles, Kevan and Graham all made their presence known at the front of the pack on various occasions but missed the decisive break of four riders which got away with about 4 laps to go and stayed […]

Ruthin in the sunshine…

Ruthin in the sunshine…

Thanks to Kevin Campbell for this report on Sunday’s club run – I was otherwise engaged (see Bogblog for details!) On what proved to be one of the nicest days of the summer so far, a large group of over 20 gathered at the club house. It was especially good to see Andy P making […]

Polaris Challenge

Polaris Challenge

I teamed up with Gareth for my first attempt at a Polaris at Bamford in the Peak District. Sort of orienteering on mountain bikes, you get 7 hours riding Saturday and 5 on Sunday to reach as many of 40 checkpoints as you can, taking any roads or bridle tracks between them. On Saturday, in […]

A "pub stop"

A "pub stop"

Only six of us out today, probably because of the vile weather forecast – as it happened it rained on the way out to Hatchmere, but from there on it was dry and quite pleasant. As most people couldn’t be out for long Jed suggested a pub stop: a fairly radical concept in clubrun culture! […]

Oulton Park

Oulton Park

What a turn out! Both races must have had over 60 riders. And WVCC provided a good proportion of them. The first race featured Alan Kemp, Graham Gregory, Dave Astles, Garry Brown, Les Charnley, Mark Thompson, Kevan and me. The pace was brisk, the tarmac was smooth. Alan, Kevan, Graham and Dave all got involved […]

John Boote Memorial Senior Road Race

John Boote Memorial Senior Road Race

Well done to Graham and Ann for the impeccable organisation – everything seemed to go very smoothly. It’s amazing to see how everyone does their bit – a real team effort – there must have been at least 30ish WVCC members involved, in various capacities. Steve Thomas’s role as motorbike outrider looks the most fun […]

Star struck at the track…

Star struck at the track…

And who did I meet this morning at the track? No less a person than Mark Cavendish, who was hanging around with his bike in full Columbia kit in reception. He recognised me immediately and told me how impressed he was with my recent form. I told him that my family and I are his […]

We are proud to announce that WVCC will be the organising club of the 2018 J-B @TLI_Cycling national RR Championship , to be held at Siddington on 12th August 2018
