The Carnedds "ride" Sat 30 ...

The Carnedds "ride" Sat 30 April

Richard had a great idea about heading over some of Snowdonia’s 3000′ mountains and the two Kev’s and I were game enough (perhaps daft enough) to accompany him. We took the Roman Road which was ridable all the way up Drum before pushing up Foel Fras, the most northeasterly of the Welsh 3000 footers. From […]

Mary Townley Loop & Borderlands C...

Mary Townley Loop & Borderlands Challenge

Les and I joined Pete Riley and 3 more fiends at short notice to ride the Mary Townley Loop on Good Friday. It was a perfect day for this challenging 47 mile ride, mainly on old pack horse tracks around the Lancashire /Yorkshire border. Last time I did it was with Kev & El and […]

Long Mynd weekend 9&10 April

Long Mynd weekend 9&10 April

We couldn’t have wished for a better weekand, just a better turnout! Kev C and I had a brilliant time on Saturday riding over the Long Mynd 5 times in total. Each descent from the broad grassy ridge was better than the last, this was the third one down towards Bridges where we planned for […]

Delamere 2 April

Delamere 2 April

Thanks to Alan for this plot of a ride we did last September – he finished off up the Yeld which we don’t usually tackle! But as you can see we are never far from the cafe, so there’s no excuse not to come and join us for as long as you want, then head […]

Cheshire Cat

Cheshire Cat

Thanks to Julian for this picture. Here we all are, in the B and Q car park at Crewe, about to start on the Cheshire Cat – well done Woody for getting us organised. From left: Dan, John Keen, Adrian, Elaine, Carol, Woody, Andrew and James Risk, me and Kev. Also riding but not in […]

Two Mills

Two Mills

A swift and uneventful ride to Two Mills today with a good size group. The outward trip started in the rain but this eased after an hour or so. We rode through Tarporley, Tattenhall, Churton then up through Chester, onto the old train track to Saughall – the return trip was direct through the Forest. […]

Grizedale Duathlon 13 March

Grizedale Duathlon 13 March

Another well run event in the beautiful Lake District on a pleasant spring day. Kev Campbell and I completed the course along with my friends from Newcastle, Tim and Sharon who competed as a relay team. No prizes this time, just the satisfaction of covering 37km with 1500m of ascent and descent on foot and […]

Delamere Sat 5 March

Delamere Sat 5 March

Come and join us for a couple of hours around the forest. Plenty of interesting singletrack and hopefully not too muddy if the dry spell continues. All abilities welcome, we regroup frequently and usually get back to the cafe for lunchtime. Those who want to, do a bit more in the afternoon. Give me a […]

Llanberis 2011

Llanberis 2011

Another excellent weekend. Well done and thank you to Graham and Ann for organising and providing transport and en route support – to Steve for driving and for his enthusiastic encouragement – and to Dave Hinde for providing a big black van and much-appreciated mechanical assistance. Kev and I had a great ride out and […]

Llandegla Sat 19 Feb

Llandegla Sat 19 Feb

After enjoying a circuit of the black trail, on our final run back into the centre Chas had a very bad fall. He was taken to Wrexham Hospital where he’s being treated for back injuries. The three of us who were also out on the ride, Andy B, Kev C and I wish him all […]

Hit the North 12 Feb 2011

Hit the North 12 Feb 2011

Another fantasticly well organised event by the HtN team near Whitefield north Manchester went off in sunshine with 5 WVCC riders – if you look carefully you can see us all lined up for the start above. Thanks to John Climber for all the pics (I’ll be donating to mountain rescue as requested – probably […]

Summertrees and lots of climbing…

Above – the best bit – lunch at the cafe! WVCC takes over Summertrees cafe… Well ever since I started riding with WVCC I’ve been persuaded that if I want to be a good bike rider I’ve got to learn to love hills – so with some trepidation I agreed to go on the longer […]

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