How to cycle underneath a river

If I hadn’t seen a Sustrans post about it, I’d never have known about it, but visiting the Newcastle area now and again, I had to check it out. It’s a tunnel you see, under the River Tyne, but not your usual, cars, buses and other motorised transport affair, this was built for pedestrians and […]

ToB and WVCC

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.

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:

The prize included 3 nights bed and breakfast at Paul’s villa in Beniarrés, 2 days bike hire, transfers to/from Alicante.

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 […]

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....
