Welcome, to the real world…

Okay, so we can’t go out and play, but we do need exercise, and playing our part in not spreading COVID-19 any further than our own sheds seemed to be the thing to do. We are advised that we can exercise outside, but for most of us, a quick jog around the park doesn’t really […]

Social Distancing – ONLY ride s...

This is a quick message to urge all cyclists, not just club members, to only ride solo whilst you are out on your bikes for the forseeable future. Only go out once a day, and avoid all contact with others (2 metre rule). We’ve seen an appalling lack of compliance to advice given thus far […]

COVID-19 WVCC Response

*IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ* For members of WVCC: COVID-19 – our response. As a committee, we recognise that we must support the government in their efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19. As such, from hereon in, we are suspending our Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday rides, and Tuesday evening social meetings at WPRFC. It’s not […]

Scones, comfy slippers and Llanberis ...

A far better outlook than last greeted those at the club. The sun even poked it’s nose out briefly. Still, Jim took no chances, equipping the broom wagon with snorkel, goggles and flippers. Just in case like…. The black swans in the pond in Hoofield Lane were impressed. Llanberis can be a smiling assassin, and […]

Llanberis 2020 – The routes

For the riders all set for the weekend, here are the routes for both days! They are GPX files for you to download to your bike GPS units. To download on a PC, right click on each of the links below and select Save Link As or Save Target As, and choose where you want […]

Club Dinner 2020

..and here we are in a new decade, and back to the social event you have all been looking forward to! Our club dinner is on Saturday 1st February 2020 at 19:00. This year we’re at the Winnington Park Recreation Club, and it’ll be a great evening with the usual chance to socialise whilst we’re washed […]

WVCC Cyclo-cross 2020

Well, it was certainly a cool day, with a harsh chilling wind to start, and dry-ish conditions, albeit heavy going for the riders. The biggest entertainment, and certainly the most technical part of the course, which favoured the faster and fitter, was a small and unassuming little chicane, up a gentle slope. By the time […]

Clocks go back this weekend 27th Oct!

https://clipartxtras.com/download/a17f5a16218c2d79b95f3a48e3e5b175b756e207.html

It’s that time of year again – so don’t forget this Sunday morning now will you? At 02:00 on the 27th October (early Sunday morning when you are fast asleep), the clocks will go back an hour! This is probably fine if you use a smart phone or computer as they’ll probably set themselves. Best […]

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

It’s been a great week thus far (and it’s only Wednesday) for the 2019 ToB, with the Green Jersey (for the overall leader of the race), swapping and changing. Facebook was busy with some vague plans for some who were interested to go and watch somewhere. I had plans just to cycle out to the […]

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 Summer Barbecue – 20th Jul...

The WVCC Barbecue is organised this year for the 20th. Food will be served from 19:00. We’re getting Clever Catering in like last year. The food was great and plenty for everyone. A great night especially for new members to come along and socialise! £10 per adult and kids under 14 £3.50. Please make sure […]

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....
