TLI Crash Update

TLI Crash Update

Thanks to Richard Munro for this update on Tuesday night’s crash… As some of you are aware, Andy Poole and I were involved in a crash at the TLI race at Lower Withington last week. Andy and I took part in the under 50s race which, on a wet and dark evening, was cut down […]

Lee Quarry 2nd May

Lee Quarry 2nd May

Andy gets some air at Lee Quarry – between Rawtnestall and Bacup in Lancashire. They’ve made a great job creating a 5km “red” loop (Andy, Gareth and I did 5 circuits) with an additional 2km “black”(bonkers) bit for those who like checking out the ground with their faces. The red is great, quite a heavy […]

Wednesday Wrinklies to Malpas

Wednesday Wrinklies to Malpas

What do you call a mushroom at a disco? Fun guy. If you want to hear jokes as bad as this, come out on a Wednesday ride. If you don’t, you’re better riding on your own, or alternatively just don’t ride next to Gary Brown! 17 riders, yet another lovely sunny day, beautiful spring countryside […]

TLI Lower Withington Tuesday 28th April

A horrible wet night: because of the conditions and poor light the organisers thankfully limited us to 4 laps. Craig, Andy Poole, Richard M and Dave rode in the youngsters’ race, with Graham, Kevan and me in the over 50s, whilst Nick and Chas marshalled, Ann and Helen Gregory, Jed and Dave Astles supported and […]

Racing to oblivion…

Racing to oblivion…

Eleanor writes:Much to my disappointment, when I pulled into Weaverham High School all the riders looked fit, whippet-like and young. I was hoping to see at least a couple of duffers with stabilisers, but no luck. Anyway I resolved to follow the only piece of advice Kevan gave me: get to the front at the […]

Wednesday 22nd April to Nantwich

Wednesday 22nd April to Nantwich

Eleanor writes:Another beautiful day and 17 riders out, including a welcome return for Debbie, and a new rider Paul, who Claire apparently picked up on the way to Hashmere (the hussy). An uneventful ride out to Nantwich via Bunbury at a steady speed to keep everyone together. Nice lunch in the Marina cafe where we […]

Sunday 19th April to Garth – and a message from Malcolm about a stolen bike…

Eleanor writes:Thirty or so riders met at Hartford and split into three groups – a long ride to Garth, an intermediate group on a roundabout route to the ice cream farm and a beginners’ group straight to the ice cream farm. A large group elected to ride to Garth, with Ewart leading. And as all […]

Delamere Sat 18 April

Delamere Sat 18 April

Meet at the Station cafe as usual at 10am. All abilities welcome. We may split into two groups, technical and less so. Either way, you won’t get left to fend for yourself in the dark wood. If you don’t think the forest is challenging enough, then we’ll show you different!There is much more to go […]

Wednesday 8th April to Holt

Wednesday 8th April to Holt

Posted by Eleanor:Despite mixed forecasts 8 of us (Ged, Chris L, Cliff, Peter, Garry B, Dave D, Malcolm and me) enjoyed beautiful spring weather for a fairly swift ride to Holt – into a nasty headwind there and helped by a tailwind on the way back. I can’t remember which way we took as I […]

Coed y Brenin 4 April

Coed y Brenin 4 April

A smaller than usual group of three headed for North Wales courtesy of Andy’s van. We hit the Beast trail which is 37km of mainly singletrack with some rocky technical sections but more flowing than it used to be. It takes in 3500ft of climbing (that’s equivalent to riding up Snowdon), but that didn’t seem […]

Sunday 5th April to Llandegla

Sunday 5th April to Llandegla

Posted by Eleanor:The two groups (approx 15 riders) rode together (more or less) to Holt, where Ewart took over, to lead 6 of us (Kevan, Kevin, John Conboy, John Crystal, Howie and me) on the longer ride to Llandegla – he promised us a flat route there. Ha ha. As someone said, “never trust a […]

Sunday 29th March 2009, Rainow

Well done Eleanor, getting the blog going again. Here is something from the other blogger!The Sunday run to Rainow began very very cold and we were fortunate that the sun was out all day which brought the temperature up to just normal cold! The turnout was a bit down at 17 souls but there were […]
