Who’s for seconds? The Wrinklie...

It’s that time of year. Warming up for Christmas, and what better way to do it than join the traditional Wrinklies ride to a Christmas dinner. Arrived at Hatchmere in shorts and a long sleeved top, just to mark the fact that we are sharing a climate with the Australian Christmas, except that we aren’t […]

M&DTTA Christmas 10 – 2015

M&DTTA Christmas 10 – 2015

Not a WVCC event, but an event organised by our own Mr Fearon, and always a bit of festive fun. The highlight of the event is the fancy dress, and those who enter into this spirit really go to town on their outfits. It was a cold, wet day as I stood shivering at Allostock, […]

Round and round we go

The third track night saw 20 eager participants brave the traffic and rain to enjoy the warmth and shelter of the best track in the country, and the best track coach to lead us through an excellent training session. There was something tonight for all abilities, with a good warm up session that had us […]

British Cycling Discount Membership

If you aren’t a British Cycling member, but you are a paid up Weaver Valley CC member – did you know that you can get a hefty discount on your first year BC membership? Why would I want to join British Cycling? Exclusive joining offer for members of British Cycling affiliated clubs (first year only), […]

Cheshire Classic Women’s Road R...

As the winter nights are drawing in, we are already looking at next year’s season, and in particular, WVCC’s own Cheshire Classic Women’s Road Race. The date is in the calendar – 24th April 2016 – and course details are pending approval. See the latest news on the Cheshire Classic web site. See the link […]


As a further addition to the site, as there are many Strava users in the club, and a club Strava group, there is now a feed sat in the sidebar where the gallery thumbnails were. There is also a weekly mileage summary in the footer. πŸ™‚

In a change to the advertised program...

..we went to the Mills.Β Given the interesting weather, including an even more interesting wind, I didn’t want Β to ride back from the cafe into a head wind, so decided on a different – call it unimaginative if you will – trip to the Mills, knowing full well that we’d be into the wind, with the […]

Another cafe update?

Yes, but this is just a post to let you know that I’ve now scripted an export to a simple GPX file that you can load onto your bike GPS or PC/Mac/tablet/whatever. It contains ALL the cafes, so lookout if you are running low on device memory (many GPS devices will limit the amount of […]

Cafe additions

The cafe list seems to be getting a life of it’s own now and demands to be be kept updated! Two new additions today – The Deli in Audlem, not open Sunday, but just down the road from our usual haunt if we turn up on another day and the Old Priest House is full! […]

Looking for a cafe?

Well, if you are, and you’ve used the cafe list before – pay another visit – it’s just here I’ve just spent a few hours cleansing some internet lists of cycling friendly cafes across the country (prompted by our own Mr Duffy who found a cracking little Google list). So, use the list – […]

WVCC Cyclo Cross 2015

The NWCCA Round 7 event was held as per usual, but a little wetter and a little muddier, which made for an increasingly challenging course as the day progressed! Nevertheless a very successful day, and the persistent and intermittent showers did little to put the masses from participating in all classes. Results are below, and […]

Kemp hits the headlines

A great story, courtesy of our friends at the Northwich Guardian, featuring our very own Alan Kemp. Well worth a read!

Helping set course today for @WeaverValleyCC for @nwcca race tomorrow. I hope the wind dies down! πŸŒͺ
