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 […]

31 May Sunday Llandegla & Llangollen NPS

Don’t miss this chance to see the country’s top downhillers in action. It’s MSC/Descent-Gear National Points Series Rd 2 at Llangollen on Saturday and Sunday the 30th and 31st of May 2009. In their words, round two is going to be off the Richter Scale and will go down in the history books as the […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

EMILY WINS AT TAMESIDE!!!!!... both went to the Tameside crit event tonight... 7 ladies entered mixture of cat 2-4. Emily did her fair share on the front. Jumped off a couple of times but the group did pull back. Emily won the prime at lap 10. Group stayed together until 2 laps when Emily jumped and stayed away to take the win!! As for me I am awful at cornering as expected... lost everyone after every corner then managed to get back on. Finished a miserable 4th but great experience and at least I now know what to work on over winter.... 🚴🏼‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️ Emily Jane Martin ... ’Expand’’Hide’

Hi all. Currently there's nobody told me they are coming to the off-road ride on Saturday. Still happy to run one if there are any takers. ... ’Expand’’Hide’

Hi, I am interested in coming to cycle with you, is there a beginners group or one that isn’t quite as fast to gauge what ability I am at and if I am quick enough at all. I can do about 30 miles comfortably but would like to join a club to improve my pace. ... ’Expand’’Hide’

I know what an Altruistic bunch some of you are, and I have benefited from this. As my kit rail will testify. However I’m looking for cold hard cash for the following items.

- Michelin pro 4 service course.
700 x 25
Too wide for my Dave Lloyd, lots of wear left.
£25 the pair.

- Campagnolo Khamsin front wheel, smooth and true. (No QR skewer). Wear holes still visible.
£20
