The Big LEJOG Blog!

 LEJOG 28th May to 6th June 2015 Carl asked me if I would join him and 3 others on a ride from Lands End to John-O-Groats. It was to be part of his  celebrations for his 50th birthday. Having had a couple of health scares, stents in 2012 and then AF and an ablation in […]

Inaugural WVCC “virtual” ...

Wednesday evenings once again saw the return of the Club 10 but with a slight difference. The first WVCC “Virtual” Club 10 Time Trial of the Tempus Fugit course on Zwift’s Watopia. With everything new there were a few teething problems with Craig unable to get in despite an invite. Titch had a last minute […]

COVID-19 Update. What you can and can...

Given that we are now in a second lockdown, and our movements are now greatly restricted, please now ensure that you obey what is in fact law, and keep yourselves and your families safe. British Cycling has provided some guidance in line with the new national restrictions. I fully expect all club members to abide […]

COVID-19 Restrictions 5th Nov. to 3rd...

As you all know, we’re going into another phase of lockdown from midnight tonight (see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-national-restrictions-from-5-november?utm_campaign=1595719_Lockdown%20Update%20%7C%2004%2F11%2F20&utm_medium=email&utm_source=British%20Cycling%20V2&dm_i=480K,Y79J,RB5PJ,49CJA,1) This obviously means, that as a club, we will continue to refrain from any club activities. You can still get out on your bike though, but please stick to the rules (also relevant to non club members and visitors to […]

Steady schlep to sleepy Sleap

In an effort to pretend that life is still normal, a small, disparate group of us have taken to convening on a Sunday morning for a long non clubrun club run. Last weekend was officially classed as, ‘hilly’ and so it seemed only fair that this weekend should be in the, ‘flat’ category. During the […]

Cliff Holden

Cliff Holden

I’ve just received the sad news that club member, Cliff Holden, has passed away. Cliff was a regular on the Wednesday Wrinklies rides up until recently, and had recently bought an electric bike so that he could keep on riding. He was making good progress following a series of operations and had even had a […]

Hello Club!

Whilst we’re all doing our own things, solo riding, socially distancing as a small group, or not riding at all, it’s always good to look forward in these changing times. WVCC is still here, still waiting patiently, and ready to unleash activities when safe to do so. At this stage, we remain cautious, but shortly, […]

Alan Kemp Us older riders will remember riding out to very early morning time trials , eg on courses J13 and 14 on the East Lancs road and many others , in my case mid to late 1960s , on a set up similar to the photo . Race wheels carried on aluminium brackets. A […]

WVCC COVID-19 Update

Following previous posts, and recent statements from national cycling organisations, including British Cycling, Cycling Time Trials, Cycling UK and Audax UK, it is important that the committee make a statement about a club approach during the coming months. Ahead of a committee meeting that we’ll be holding in on 7th July, we will not be […]

COVID-19 Update

Given that the government announced changes and some relaxation to rules about time spent outdoors, this is just an update with regard to WVCC activities and cycling in general. There are still NO club activities. NO group rides, NO time trials, NO road or circuit racing until such time as we announce it. Do not […]

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....
