Pre workout mobilisation exercises

Here are a few exercises for you to do before you start your workout aimed at mobilising various joint and muscles. If you don’t have time to do them all focus on spinal and shoulder mobility and hip openers.  The roll down. Great for spinal mobility from the neck and will also stretch the glutes […]

Claims for club standards & BAR qualifying rides

It’s that time of the Year again where you need to let me have your claims for medals / BAR trophies for the 2019 TT season.  If you look on the WVCC website under “Club Info” – “Competition” you will find the rules explaining the BAR qualifying criteria and also a list of club standards […]

21st Sept Stretford Wheelers 25TT (an...

Saturday the 21st of September was the last Cheshire TT for a few of our club, namely Sam Taylor, Ali Stanway, Andy Milligan, Carol & Dan Robson, Dave Curran and myself. For me personally it was a welcome end to the season after racing since March and feeling pretty tired of late, so a final […]

Leo 30 mile TT – New Mens Competition Record

After missing out on a ride at the National 25 due to cancellation in July I was keen to round out the season on a high.  A quick look at the CTT events list unearthed the Leo 30 in Cambridge on the doorstep of some good friends who we’d not seen in a couple of years.  After […]

Weaver Valley CC – Hill Climb 2...

  It was hill climb time again this Sunday and this time we had already been through the loop, so things were a bit less stressful, only a bit mind! Yet again people came up trumps and we had all our helpers and Marshals lined up and ready to go. Quite a few new faces […]

How to cycle underneath a river

If I hadn’t seen a Sustrans post about it, I’d never have known about it, but visiting the Newcastle area now and again, I had to check it out. It’s a tunnel you see, under the River Tyne, but not your usual, cars, buses and other motorised transport affair, this was built for pedestrians and […]

ToB and WVCC

It’s been a great week thus far (and it’s only Wednesday) for the 2019 ToB, with the Green Jersey (for the overall leader of the race), swapping and changing. Facebook was busy with some vague plans for some who were interested to go and watch somewhere. I had plans just to cycle out to the […]

BDCA 100- the beating of the 4 hour barrier

By Sam Taylor BDCA 100 07/09/19 After doing my first 100 mile tt in July, I was keen to have another go at hopefully dipping under 4 hours and doing a 25mph ride, so Dave Fearon encouraged me to enter the BDCA event on the A100/4 course (on the A50 near Uttoxiter) which is known […]

Port Talbot 25 and a new PB

Port Talbot 25 and a new PB

By Alistair Stanway. Inspired by a man half my age after his superb ride in the 100 yesterday I travelled to South Wales today to have a crack at the fast R25/3H course for the Port Talbot CC 25. Keen to see what we could knock out and hunting a 25 PB. According to the […]

It’s Hot for Cross!

It’s Hot for Cross!

It’s only the 8th of September, and we’re already complete for round 1 and 2 of the North West Cyclocross Association League, with an excellent turn out by Weaver Valley!  Having had my CX debut last year in freezing conditions in a snow blizzard, 2019 round 1 and 2 have been positively barmy in comparison […]

Withington Wheelers 10TT – J2/3

We’re steadily heading toward the end of the road racing and time trialling season, and today’s 10TT by Withington Wheelers was a late add on after an event was cancelled with bad weather (I think!) earlier in the year. For the last J course 10 of the season, the entrants were Sam Taylor, Lynsey Astles, […]

That 25mile TT club record…

The women’s 25-mile club record has been an elusive one for me, firstly because it’s not something I thought I’d be worrying about when I started time trialling, and secondly because the club weren’t 100% sure what it was! With Dave Fearon saying “I’m sure Jackie White dipped under the hour in the 80s!” However, […]

As a club, we’d like to wish Andrew Simpson @simmo_on_sport all the best for the future, with a heartfelt thanks for supporting WVCC all these years....
