A Long Time In The Saddle

Number 16 30 seconds 10 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, GO, good luck. Does this sound familiar? Of course it does you know how a time trial works by now. But this wasn’t the start of it all for me. It was way back at Oulton Park talking to Adrian Japp and Dave Fearon about […]

Titch’s debut 12hr TT

When you journey thru the distances of TT’ing, it is usual to do it in a progressive manner, spending a few years riding 50’s, and 100’s before venturing into the realms of a 12hour TT.. However, Titch turned the convention book on its head by only riding 10’s, a couple of 25’s and just one […]

Final Fling – 14th August 2019

Final Fling – 14th August 2019

Thanks to the riders who turned up for our final club 10 of the season.  There were some notable rides on the night.  Andy Milligan and Paul Longley have been producing some great rides this year and finally they got a win with a tie for first place with 23:13.  Titch now has to take […]

Club records 2019 – the story s...

As per Ady’s post on Facebook, it’s better for the club’s records if we blog results so that they’re in chronological and easier to find. With this in mind, here’s a record of the club champ results so far this year, with only the 12hr and hill climb left this season… 10 mile champs – […]

Club 10’s  – 7th August 2019 – Final Counting Round

So the cup competitions are all over bar the shouting.  16 people turned up to try and make a difference and as is the tradition I won’t publish the Guardian Cup and Scratch Cup final standings as they will be announced at the post Final Fling social in the Crown at Lower Peover next Wednesday. […]

Club 10 31/07/2019 Cancelled

Due to the flooding on the course, tonight’s 10 is unfortunately cancelled. There were official road closure signs between the garage where we start and the Three Greyhounds pub this afternoon, so, to ensure that we consider rider safety first, we have made this decision.

Club 10 – Round 9 – 24th July 2019

Cracking evening yesterday with lots of sunshine resulting in plenty of PB’s.  A special mention to our Carol (Robson not Kirkwood):), who demolished her PB from 28:22 to 27:03!!!  I think the club needs to order an EPO test kit and an X-Ray machine for next season as some of these improvements are amazing.  Only […]

Club 10’s- 17th July 2019

Club 10’s- 17th July 2019

A night for the riders with waterproof skin tonight!  16 brave souls turned up and actually despite the rain it was pretty quick with several PB’s.  Winner with a 22:00 was Dave Walker but there was a gaggle of 23’s after that with a very in form Titch taking second place with a PB 23:12.  […]

Club 100 mile champs – 14th July 2019 – SCCA 100

Just some words from me following Emily’s excellent blog yesterday.  It has been a quite a few years since we had 4 entrants in the 100 champs and having 3 novices including one lady entrant is even more unusual.  All 4 riders stepped up to the distance and took it on bravely.  100 miles at […]

SCCA 100TT

The 4am alarm rang this morning and I think Sam and I were too nervous about falling asleep to even consider a snooze, so up we got, dragged ourselves into some clothes, made some coffee and got on the road; leaving the poor dog mystified as to what the hell was going on. The last […]

Club 10 – 10th July 2019

A tailwind down Penny’s Lane last night which is always a good things on this course.  As a result we saw no less than 9 club riders setting PB’s from our of a field of 17 WVCC riders and 2 visitors. For the first time but I’m sure not the last we saw Sam Taylor […]

10 Mile Championship – 3rd July 2019

Fantastic turn-out for the 10 champs last night and probably one of our best ever in terms of number of riders and times recorded.  Conditions were perfect and as a result we had a lot of PB’s and some very close placings. Second claim member and local Pro Matt Nowell posted a sizzling 21:03 but […]

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....
