Pedal Power Festival Northwich – Sunday 14th June 2015

If you didn’t know already, this Sunday is the Pedal Power Festival in Northwich Town Centre. http://www.pedalpowernorthwich.co.uk/ For those club members who aren’t riding the sportives, it would be great to see you come down to our stand at some time between 08:30 and 16:30, to offer your support, help out if you can, perhaps […]

Club 10s – 2 – up/Tandems – 10th June 2015

Clunk.. $%”&%*(£… Despite the warm evening, there were fewer out than last week. Clearly most are saving themselves for the counting Guardian Cup rounds. Although this was a designated 2up/Tandems event, some chose to ride it as a 2 up, some as solo (we’re fairly flexible like that!). I chose to ride a 2up with […]

Club 10s – Guardian Cup Round 4 – 3rd June 2015 – and overall positions

A fine night brought out the numbers to contest the Guardian Cup further. Jim, aggressively with a full set of rides this year has secured his place at the top of the overall table, but after a holiday, Matt Sayle came storming back with another time improvement, and a bunch of points to go with […]

LeJoG Day four… and a club run or two

The day started with rain and wind. I didn’t expect to see too many out as I approached the club, but there was a healthy gathering of club members, all eager to trip out and try something a bit different. Today was a bit different. We were to meet Graham, Carl and the intrepid band […]

Club 10s – Guardian Cup Round 3 – 27th May 2015 – and positions

Well the rain put most off last night, although by the time 7pm approached, the rain had all but gone, and the 5 brave riders on the night set off. As the traffic lights are still there near Peover, the 2 lap course was used. Times in general were slower than most PBs, apart from […]

Club 10s – Guardian Cup Round 2 positions

..and just before round 3 kicks off tonight, here are the placings. Hopefully we are not going to have another year like 2014 with loads of roadworks, but it certainly looks that way with yet another course change due to temporary traffic lights in Peover. We used the old 2 lapper that we all know […]

All abilities starter ride: Short blog for a short ride!!

The weather certainly played a part today as we waited in the drizzle outside of the legion for 10:00 to arrive!! Nevertheless, expecting no-one, we had a young enthusiast pedalling up, suited and booted with his dad, club member Andy, along with him, and Gina, who came to get an idea of precisely what we […]

Club 10s – Guardian Cup Round 1 positions

This is what you’ve all been waiting for. The points and positions for the first round of the Guardian Cup. It’ll be a good year this year with some new contenders, and speaking of which, the early leader after round 1 is brand new member Matt ‘Scoop’ Sayle, grabbing a maximum of 25 points for […]

Sometimes you’ve just got to stop and look around….

A warm/cold* day greeted the riders with shorts/leggings* today, as we headed out for a club run to Bollington. A decent sized group was chatty and happy as we made easy and steady progress out from Hartford through Davenham, Lach Dennis, Goostry, Swetenham, and onto Siddington and up to Broken Cross. We scooted past Macclesfield, […]

Club 10s – Guardian Cup Round 1 – 13th May 2015

A warmer, sunnier evening brought out the numbers, with 26 starting tonight, and the start of the Guardian Cup for 2015. Less wind on the night, but not necessarily easier, as there was no helpful tail from the start. Some good times posted though as the time-trialling legs get stretched for the rest of the […]
