M&DTTA Awards Lunch

After a solid year of time trials for the club with more people racing than ever, it was fitting that Caroline and Dave Fearon didn’t go to the M&DTTA (Manchester and District Time Trialling Association) awards lunch alone this year. Instead seven of us comprising of The Fearons, Carol & Dan, Titch, Sam and I […]

Ouch , blinkin heck , that hurt!

Ouch , blinkin heck , that hurt.😪😂 !! I’ve always had an issue and some previous form with the race number 13 or 13th of the month , does not have to be a Friday ! So to do an off road ride today the 13th, in the foul weather after a tough weekend was […]

So, my comeback that refuses to comeback continues…. On Friday I had a prawn sandwich for lunch from a little cafe in north Manchester and a short while later started to feel rough. I got really sweaty, went home, went to bed and later on Friday evening was sick. I then didn’t eat till Saturday […]

WVCC Cyclo-cross 2020

Well, it was certainly a cool day, with a harsh chilling wind to start, and dry-ish conditions, albeit heavy going for the riders. The biggest entertainment, and certainly the most technical part of the course, which favoured the faster and fitter, was a small and unassuming little chicane, up a gentle slope. By the time […]

Manchester Regional Track League 22nd...

Since last Friday I have really piled in the training (not), a club run, a gym session, some efforts on the turbo and some core work. Sensibly (unusual for me) I am getting back in to it slowly so as not to do myself in. In any case some work has been done and so […]

Manchester Regional Track League 15th...

Some people would say that racing on no training and with less than zero percent fitness is a silly thing to do. I would entirely agree with them but my reasoning on taking the plunge so soon is that I really enjoy the track league, it gives me a good focus over the winter and […]

Llanberis time!

It’s that time of year again – so don’t forget this Sunday morning now will you? At 02:00 on the 27th October (early Sunday morning when you are fast asleep), the clocks will go back an hour! This is probably fine if you use a smart phone or computer as they’ll probably set themselves. Best […]

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 […]

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....
