Clwyd Hills Sat 1 Aug

Clwyd Hills Sat 1 Aug

Another good turnout and ten of us completed the “Arthur 2 times” route around the northern end of the Clwyd hills, thanks to Matt having programmed it into his GPS from the Ride the Clwyds website. A few spots of rain as we set off gave way to sunshine and fantastic views across the Vale […]

Handlebars and Seatposts..

The Saturday ride of the 25th July set off from the Three Greyhounds in Glorious sunshine heading for Holmes Chapel en route for Mow Cop, Knypersley Reservoir, and The Cloud. In what turned out to be a memorable ride, not for “killer” climbs, only 765m in 42 miles, or for the great views from the […]

Evening Ride at Llandegla 22 July

Evening Ride at Llandegla 22 July

Kevin C and son Jack rode the roller coaster Black trail at Llandegla for the first time on Wednesday evening. If you haven’t ridden these trails you don’t know what you’re missing. They loved it; especially Jack who probably hasn’t lost that big grin off his face yet. Andy Boyle made it too, but arrived […]

A message from Claire…

A message from Claire…

Claire’s sent this message through for the blog…I know we’d all like to wish her well, I’m sure those miles with the Wrinklies will stand her in good stead! Pls can you thank everyone on the Wednesday run for training me up for my L2P bike ride? Without their help, I would not have got […]

Peak View Tea Rooms

Peak View Tea Rooms

A wonderful ride – lots made it to Macclesfield and then nine of us made it to the cafe – Graham was the run leader, then Lou, Ewart (who said he had swine flu and I wasn’t sure whether to believe him), Kevin, Kevan and I (all with sore legs after yesterday’s mountain biking), Gareth, […]

Delamere 11 July

Follow this man through the forest if you can! Here is Ross in action at Brown Backs Racing’s Lea Quarry event (thanks to them for the pic). He always seems to find some undiscovered trails, so don’t miss out. All abilities welcome and we can split into two groups if it suits. We certainly won’t […]

When I’m 64…When I get older, losing my hair, will I still be riding my bike as fast as these fellas?

A perfect hot day and 13 of us set off to the Lock Cafe at Whitchurch. Nine of us got there. We worked out that excluding me and Jed (we’re the relative youngsters) the average age was 64. Amazing. The normal quality of banter was enhanced by Richard Heywood’s return to the fold. Richard, removing […]

Two reports – a long wet ride and a less long sunny ride…

Thanks to Kevin and Claire for reports on today’s rides…it’s interesting to note the different weather conditions on each ride, both on the same day. The pics below are views to illustrate Kevin’s ride. From Kevin…With the promise of glorious views, sunshine, and the first climb of the day after 3 miles, five of us […]

The devil takes the hindmost…an epic tale of WVCC drama at the Warrington 4Up

Two caption competitions on the go here –1. For the story. The caption above is Craig’s. John Conboy has suggested “you may feel a little prick” but I’ve decided that this fails the decency filter!2. For the picture below. If you ask me, Dave looks like he’s enjoying Craig’s attention rather too much…Anyway an energy […]

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 […]

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!
