Delamere – in the gloop

It was a very nice day. Cool, but in the sun, pleasantly warm. Off with the gilet after only a couple of miles and onto join the lads off road for a change, in my attempt to start to get some fitness back. Jim looked surprised as he overtook me on the way up Kingsley […]

How very civilised. Short run 28/02/2...

Let us for a moment ponder the climatic differences of last week to this: Yeah. Slightly different. This week the long run group headed off to Prees with a healthy number of riders, all keen to keep the Llanberis legs exercised. The short run was however to offer a more civilised and amenable approach. We […]

Llanberis. Brutal. Need I say more..?

Well I suppose I must, so here is a bit of a photo blog. There was a sense of foreboding on social media in the days before, given the weather forecast as the weekend approached. I popped up to Hatchmere for a quick roll call of the early leavers there, and was greeted by a bunch […]

Llanberis 2016 – update

As many will know, we had a bit of last minute drama after we found out that the cafe at Ruthin Craft Centre had closed, which is where we were due to stop for the feeding frenzy before heading onwards to Denbigh! Not to worry though, as Jim, Alan and Syd sought out the Seven […]

It’s all downhill from hereR...

..especially if you are one of the many who tried to get the crown from last year’s freewheel winner Jamie, by trying to freewheel down a different hill this year. On the club run out on Sunday, a stop was made at the top of the hill just past Brines Brow car park in Delamere, and […]

Llanberis 2016… Are you ready?

For those who have booked for Llanberis 2016, you should all have had your guide emailed to you. If not, please contact Jim Williams – or me – – to make sure you have all of the details. I have attached a shortened version of the document (which does not have you room […]

To Holt, or aaaarrrghhhhhh Llanberis&...

Yes, it is that time of year. We need the miles (especially me). It didn’t feel that time of the year though. Those turning up, stopped, uttered words like ‘Phew’, ‘too hot’ or started putting sun tan lotion on. Okay, not that last bit, but it was unseasonably warm on Sunday and many were over-dressed. […]

Northwich Police and WVCC team up aga...

According the the ImmobiTag web site – see – there is a bike stolen every 71 seconds in the UK. That’s a lot of bikes, and the pride and joy of many a cyclist. Insurance often doesn’t cover everything, and most of us love our bikes and would much prefer to have them returned […]

Glenn Longland – Special Guest ...

I’m very pleased to announce that cycling legend, and friend of WVCC, Glenn Longland, will be joining us as special guest at our club dinner this year. Glenn, who started with Crabwood CC and went on to form Antelope Racing Team, has done it all, and well: cyclo-cross, road racing, track racing and time trialling, […]

Club Dinner 2016 – Saturday 13t...

Ladies and gents, we have now finalised the date for the 2016 Club Dinner. Now in the calendar for Saturday 13th February 2016. This year we’re at home at Winnington Park RFC, and it’ll be a great evening with a chance to not recognise all of our club members when they dress (almost) like humans. We […]

Just a quick message to wish all club members a Happy New Year, and lets hope that you achieve all of your aspirations for another year which will no doubt be busy and exciting for WVCC! Club Dinner this year will be on 13th February – more details to follow this coming week – but […]
