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 […]

TLI Tuesday 5th May

TLI Tuesday 5th May

Another wet night, this week’s numero uno hazard was a diesel spillage covered by lots of orange sand, not something you’d choose to ride over when trying to keep up with a bunch riding at >25 mph round a bend, but luckily this week no-one crashed. Another good turnout for WVCC, Craig and Dave riding […]

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 […]

Helping set course today for @WeaverValleyCC for @nwcca race tomorrow. I hope the wind dies down! πŸŒͺ pic.twitter.com/c06JEpWqY1
