Clwyd Hills Gareth’s Stag ride ...

Clwyd Hills Gareth’s Stag ride – Sat 30 July

A bit warm for a gorilla suit so we made Gareth some antlers which he sported for the ride. 12 was the best turnout for a couple of years. This was part way round at the Clwyd Gate following the climb up from a fast gravel descent. Brother-in-law to be Lee joined us and kept […]

Delamere and Harthill 4x 16 July

Delamere and Harthill 4x 16 July

After a fast blast around the forest with Andy B (now fully fit), Matt & Ed Hornby, Kev C and Jonti, it was off to Harthill for Derek and me to see the Schwalbe National 4x series. We rode through Primrose wood then down Tirley Garth, passed Beeston on the road and then through the […]

Polaris Challenge

Polaris Challenge

Weaver Valley had two teams in this annual competition, this year based in the Peak District with over 100 teams and solo riders from all over the UK. Richard Clader, new to this event – which is mountainbike orienteering on tracks and bridleways, teamed up with me to acheive a respectable score as the first […]

Waterproof socks don’t work

Waterproof socks don’t work

Here are some very wet riders at the Prees cafe! There were 12 of us – Richard M, Ady, Kris, Tony, Jim, three Johns, Kev, me and Carol and Woody – I think it was their first outing on the longer ride. Garry and Jed joined us en route but when the heavens opened and […]

Then there was one – a blog by Kev

It must have happened before but I suspect not very often, that the run leader returns on his own. Well to be honest there were only five of us to start with: myself, Dylan, Julian, Chris Latter and John Chrystal. Dylan and Jules, both race fit, set what would be fair to say was a […]

Keswick Mountain Festival – Lakes Epic

http://www.youtube.com/v/ZxsjKYQFi24&hl=en_GB&feature=player_embedded&version=3It appears that May is the month for riding in the lakes, with Derek and Gareth completing the Fred Whitton earlier in the month, and Kevan, Elenor and me, (Matt) riding Keswick Mountain Festival events this last weekend. All the road riders did well, completing the rides in respectable times in wild weather, but this […]

Delamere 28 May

Delamere 28 May

Now that Andy “big air” B is back on two wheels I though we should have a ride around the Delamere trails. Conditions are perfect with the recent rain to dampen down the dust. Hope you ARE fully recovered now Andy and can join us at 10am Station cafe as usual. All abilities welcome.

Blaze Farm

Blaze Farm

Sorry no photo today. Lots of people at the club today but only eight (Chris and Matt, Jules, Dylan, Graham, new rider Tony, Kev and me) opted for the longer ride. Kev led us (with a few helpful contributions from Graham!) and we took a direct route to the cross roads on the A54 then […]

TLI 3

TLI 3

Great racing in the over 50s and 60s group – Nick got into a break with 6 or 7 riders (all from the over 50s group) and worked really hard, coming in a well deserved 3rd – Alan waited and watched his own age group, who formed a second break – Alan won the sprint, […]

Two Mills

Two Mills

A great club run – instead of splitting into a longer and shorter group, we all stayed together to ride to Two Mills, and we had well over 20 riders at the cafe. The ride there was VERY WET! We were on the new Chester Greenway when the clouds opened and Garry very sensibly suggested […]

Borderlands MTB Challenge Sat 7 May

Borderlands MTB Challenge Sat 7 May

Saturday 7 May saw us heading for Rhiwlas on the edge of the Ceriog Valley near Oswestry for the annual Borderlands Challenge. This was KevC trying to thumb a lift. See http://www.rotary-ribi.org/clubs/committee.asp?ClubCtteeID=7178&ClubID=1699 and if you go to the gallery you’ll find pictures of us. This really is a very good event in aid of the […]

TLI races at Lower Withington – to ride or to race?

Lots of WVCC members of both the “riding” (trying not to get dropped) and the “racing” (trying to win) species out today. I was riding (certainly not racing) in the over 50s and 60s group and it was HORRIBLE, it seemed much faster than last year – whether it was, or whether I’m just less […]

Helping set course today for @WeaverValleyCC for @nwcca race tomorrow. I hope the wind dies down! πŸŒͺ pic.twitter.com/c06JEpWqY1
