WVCC Oulton Park 2019 Round 2 –...

Well, the result of round 2 last night was a solid drenching of all the dedicated riders that turned out! Nevertheless, there was some excellent racing, especially in race 2, with a solo breakaway, that was never reeled in. Results and a few images below:

Spectacular Cycling from the Club Din...

Mark and I were fortunate enough to win the prize donated by Paul Simpson for the club dinner, spectacularcycling – http://www.spectacularvilla.eu/. The prize included 3 nights bed and breakfast at Paul’s villa in Beniarrés, 2 days bike hire, transfers to/from Alicante. We decided to extend the stay by an extra night and secure two additional […]

24/04/2019 – TT cancelled

Sorry guys. Tonight’s TT is now cancelled due to the two sets of traffic lights on the course, one of which stops us doing the 2 lap course as well. Please pass the message on to those who don’t check Facebook or the web site frequently. The work is scheduled to be completed this week, […]

Thought i’d Post something a bit different for a change. results that are worth recording from a few decades ago! In the image below, past members who rode the championship in 1976 on the Horseshoe Pass. Richard Proudfoot 11:28.00 and Brian Russell 11:48.4 listed below.

Llanberis 2019. The maelstrom. The su...

Where does one start to describe the Llanberis weekend this year? Madness? Possibly. A little bit wet? Maybe. Maelstrom? – a situation or state of confused movement or violent turmoil. That’ll do. Many dropped out, fearing what was to come. Weather reports suggested it would be wet and windy. Oh yes. It was. A few turned […]

Is Steve still with us? A short ride ...

Was it late March or April? It certainly felt like spring this morning as I headed into the wind towards club. There was even the sound of a Skylark over the fields near Little Leigh. Not a sound you would usually hear until March. It was bright, warmer than usual, with a brisk, but not […]

Dagfields, Mills, Hailstones and suns...

This was the scene at the club this morning, with ‘not as many as expected’ given that it’s just over a month to Llanberis. Either way, there were enough eager souls turning up to do a couple of runs, and the majority took off towards Ruthin, although most muttered about Loggerheads so that was to […]

Paul Sherwen Memorial

Not normally the type of video shared on the club site, but I thought it appropriate to embed the YouTube video of the fitting tribute to WVCC Club Member Paul Sherwen, held at Manchester Cathedral on 6th February 2019.

Track Nights 2019

Track cycling. The perfect opportunity to get some excellent training and experience with the club. We have a British Cycling coach that will train you and give you probably the best 2 hour workout you’ve ever had, for far less money than you would spend on a personal individual session not run through the club. […]

The not club run(!)

I’m not writing about the club run today, as I wasn’t actually on it(!) Setting out this morning after the weather forecasts for today, I was part delighted and partly in some trepidation of the day. The delight came at heading to Hartford. It was like riding an e-bike on full chat, with a monster […]

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