Delamere Forest Sat 3 Dec

Delamere Forest Sat 3 Dec

What a cracking day! Sunshine, singletrack and serious fun in the mud. 11 starters from the cafe including Paul, proving that he can ride the trails just as well as the boards. He’ll be coaching us at Thursday’s track night too. This was a regrouping spot deep in the forest – as you can see […]

Elaine cops it – and where was Julian by the way?!

A lovely ride in mild, sunny (but very windy) Autumn weather to the very nice Lavender Cafe at Dunham and back. We had our share of stops, with 3 punctures (it’s that hedge cutting time of year) and Elaine deciding that she needed to challenge Julian for the wobbly wheel prize at the club dinner, […]

Weekend away 12&13 Nov Altura Trail and some other tracks

Glorious sunshine and unseasonal warmth helped make it a very memorable Lakes weekend. Eleanor (Kev cyclo crossing), Andy B, Derek, Matthew, Richard and I met at the Whinlatter forest visitors centre where we embarked on the Altura North loop. Within metres we had headed off on the wrong trail, Matthew broke his chain and Andy […]

Club Cyclo Cross Sun 6 Nov

Club Cyclo Cross Sun 6 Nov

A record field of 144 riders made it a cyclo cross to remember on a perfct autumn day, firm on the Greenbank playing field but much heavier and slippery in the woods. Tom Armstrong – Herbalife/Wheelbase was close to the head of affairs from the gun with stiff competition early in the race from Giles […]

The hatch, match and dispatch ride

The hatch, match and dispatch ride

What with Craig’s imminent baby (still not there, but we were all a bit twitchy when his phone rang) – and tales of an apparent suicide off the Church Minshull canal bridge, that led to the road being closed – we had a ride featuring a birth (nearly) a death (apparently) but no marriage, so […]

Llandegla and over the hills Sat 15 Oct

Thanks to Chris for the pictures. This was on our way from the top of the forest towards the Ponderosa. The view from the top. Then returning towards the cafe along a bridleway, Matthew and I doing our best to try and shake off Eleanor and Chris taking pictures on the move I guess. And […]

Delamere Sat 1 Oct

Come and enjoy the Indian summer in the forest on some of the brilliant singletrack trails. Conditions should be perfect now that the brambles are dying back and the mud will have dried up. This is one of our regulars, Kev C during Manchester’s Hit the North Race back in February. We are starting to […]

"Pillow"

"Pillow"

“Why do people shout ‘pillow’ when they ride over a bump in the road?” asked one of our newer riders today. Good question – I racked my brain for some arcane cycling terminology that I hadn’t yet learned, then finally realised what was going on. Pls. can people in future pls. articulate more clearly when […]
