Club Runs

Following the announcement from the Government regarding the relaxation of some of the rules and measures that we’ve been subject to, I want to outline the approach to the next significant phase of easing. So, to start, we aim to formally start group rides as normal from Wednesday 19th May. We must still be responsible […]

WVCC 10 Mile TTs 2021 – Update

Announcement of change WVCC 10 Mile Time trials 2021 We’ve held 3 events this year thus far, and have had to take steps to ensure that we do this safely and in accordance with CTT rules. All events are in the club calendar, and we are now in a position from w/c: 17/05/2021 to relax […]

This year we are pleased to announce that we are going to run the Wednesday 10 mile TTs, starting on Wednesday 28th April. Further events will be added to the club calendar over the next few days. Given the current restrictions, we do have to make some important changes to the way we run them […]

The Early Days of Weaver Valley C.C.

Memories from former member Dan Preston. This is a blog that will probably be of more interest to our older members, but is nevertheless relevant as a record of the history of the club. This is a story of my experiences as a member of the Weaver Valley Cycling Club. It is not meant as […]

New routes on the horizon…

Bit of a micro-blog, but relevant nevertheless. Yesterday, the 26th February 2021, the Silver Jubilee Bridge in Runcorn re-opened after 3 years. Why is this news and being posted on our web site? Simple. It is the first bridge locally that I know of that now has a dedicated and separated cycle roadway. That’s right. […]

COVID-19 Update. What you can and can...

Given that we are now in a second lockdown, and our movements are now greatly restricted, please now ensure that you obey what is in fact law, and keep yourselves and your families safe. British Cycling has provided some guidance in line with the new national restrictions. I fully expect all club members to abide […]

COVID-19 Restrictions 5th Nov. to 3rd...

As you all know, we’re going into another phase of lockdown from midnight tonight (see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-national-restrictions-from-5-november?utm_campaign=1595719_Lockdown%20Update%20%7C%2004%2F11%2F20&utm_medium=email&utm_source=British%20Cycling%20V2&dm_i=480K,Y79J,RB5PJ,49CJA,1) This obviously means, that as a club, we will continue to refrain from any club activities. You can still get out on your bike though, but please stick to the rules (also relevant to non club members and visitors to […]

Cliff Holden

Cliff Holden

I’ve just received the sad news that club member, Cliff Holden, has passed away. Cliff was a regular on the Wednesday Wrinklies rides up until recently, and had recently bought an electric bike so that he could keep on riding. He was making good progress following a series of operations and had even had a […]

Hello Club!

Whilst we’re all doing our own things, solo riding, socially distancing as a small group, or not riding at all, it’s always good to look forward in these changing times. WVCC is still here, still waiting patiently, and ready to unleash activities when safe to do so. At this stage, we remain cautious, but shortly, […]

WVCC COVID-19 Update

Following previous posts, and recent statements from national cycling organisations, including British Cycling, Cycling Time Trials, Cycling UK and Audax UK, it is important that the committee make a statement about a club approach during the coming months. Ahead of a committee meeting that we’ll be holding in on 7th July, we will not be […]

COVID-19 Update

Given that the government announced changes and some relaxation to rules about time spent outdoors, this is just an update with regard to WVCC activities and cycling in general. There are still NO club activities. NO group rides, NO time trials, NO road or circuit racing until such time as we announce it. Do not […]

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 […]

Club runs are back in the calendar for our members and new riders who are looking to join.
