TLI: WVCC success

TLI: WVCC success

In the over 50s and over 60s race, Alan Kemp led a great breakaway of three off the front: they built an impressive lead of about a minute, but somehow the pack managed to whittle this down and eventually Alan and pals were swallowed up by the bunch…however despite all his hard work earlier on […]

Sunday 24th May: Dave Fearon’s manhood is threatened…

Well they say pictures speak louder than words so I’ll let the pics do the talking! Pic 1 – at Common Barn above Rainow, enjoying the sunshine and the views…12 of us made it Pic 2 – at the top of the “2 arrows plus 1 arrow” hill above Langley Reservoir… Pic 3 – Dave […]

Night Ride Sun 24 May

Ross has kindly offered to lead us on a night ride on the local tracks and trails. Meet outside the Weaverham shops at 8pm. We’ll do the technical stuff before it’s too dark; stop for some refreshment; then head home for around midnight. 4-5 recruits so far – so come and join us and don’t […]

Superman

Superman

Claire O’Brien has sent in this wonderful poem. Thanks Claire, keep them coming… Superman Fingers flex in gloves prepare to fight,pedals fusing feet to wheeled machine,helmet arrows bike to deco flight,no brakes or gears to intervene. Like actors in the Globe once tread the boards,track cyclists, performers in their own theatre,hear the same roar of […]

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

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 – 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 […]

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!
