The not club run(!)

I’m not writing about the club run today, as I wasn’t actually on it(!) Setting out this morning after the weather forecasts for today, I was part delighted and partly in some trepidation of the day. The delight came at heading to Hartford. It was like riding an e-bike on full chat, with a monster […]

Track night – 10/01/2019

First track night of 2019. A pre-season leg stretcher saw a good numbner attending (that’s short for – I didn’t count how many). Training us this evening was our usual excellent coach Paul West, who put us all, now matter at what level of fitness, through the mill to deliver some excellent and exhausting training. […]

Club Dinner 2019 – get your tic...

Time flies, and here we are organising a Club Dinner again! Now it is in the calendar for Saturday 2nd February 2019 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 and clothed normally. This year, we are lucky […]

Cycling is tiring. Short run, 06/01/2...

It’s been a while since I’ve been on a full Sunday run, so I set out with some trepidation. I needed to get some miles in (but had at least done some warming up over the past weeks using Zwift to make sure that I didn’t make too much of an idiot of myself!). A […]

Ghent Six – 2019

There are a limited number of places available for the Ghent six on the 15th to 17th Nov 2019. The itinerary is you leave Newport Shropshire on the 15th at 6 am and travel to Ghent arriving late afternoon. Book into your Hotel which is the Ibis in Ghent. That evening we go out for a meal together.  […]

Boxing Day 10 Mile TT – Fancy dress anyone?

Eaten too much turkey? An extra helping of Christmas pudding weighing you down? This is what you need! A 10 mile fancy dress time trial to get you kickstarted! Meet at 11:00 in Shakerley Mere car park on Boxing Day. Entry fee: a present for prizes at the end. Chance to recover at the Crown Inn, […]

Extra track nights

Track cycling. The perfect opportunity to get some excellent training and experience with the club. We have a British Cycling coach that will train you and give you probably the best 2 hour workout you’ve ever had, for far less money than you would spend on a personal individual session not run through the club. […]

Clocks go back – don’t fo...

Don’t forget now will you? At 02:00 on the 28th 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 to check though! You really don’t want to turn up an […]

Wanted – an event organiser! WV...

I know that it is the end of the season, but we’re already looking at events for next year, and have pencilled in our open 25 mile time trial for 6th July 2019. This great, but we don’t currently have an event organiser, and we need to secure one so that we can run this […]

Wet, Wet, Wet – WVCC Open 25 20...

Remember them? Course you do. Most of the riders on Saturday also remember what wet, wet, wet really is, because that is what it was! Those who popped out, got wet. Although the day started out only slightly damp, more washing of the roads was to come. The day was split into 2 events, first […]

On the right track

Well, it felt really odd arriving at the velodrome in the daylight, but couldn’t let the first  winter(?) season track session go by, so landed at about 19:10. No sooner had I got into the middle of the track I saw a figre in black at the other side of the track on the rollers. […]

WVCC AGM 2018 – Tuesday 25th Se...

This post is to announce the date of the AGM, and encourage members to come along, listen to what we have done this year, what we plan to do next year, and hear proposals that you, our members may put forward. In addition to this, it is also a good opportunity to ask questions, and […]
