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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
