WVCC Cyclo-cross 2020

Well, it was certainly a cool day, with a harsh chilling wind to start, and dry-ish conditions, albeit heavy going for the riders.

https://clipartxtras.com/download/a17f5a16218c2d79b95f3a48e3e5b175b756e207.html

It’s that time of year again – so don’t forget this Sunday morning now will you? At 02:00 on the 27th 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 […]

How to cycle underneath a river

If I hadn’t seen a Sustrans post about it, I’d never have known about it, but visiting the Newcastle area now and again, I had to check it out. It’s a tunnel you see, under the River Tyne, but not your usual, cars, buses and other motorised transport affair, this was built for pedestrians and […]

ToB and WVCC

It’s been a great week thus far (and it’s only Wednesday) for the 2019 ToB, with the Green Jersey (for the overall leader of the race), swapping and changing. Facebook was busy with some vague plans for some who were interested to go and watch somewhere. I had plans just to cycle out to the […]

Club 10 31/07/2019 Cancelled

Due to the flooding on the course, tonight’s 10 is unfortunately cancelled. There were official road closure signs between the garage where we start and the Three Greyhounds pub this afternoon, so, to ensure that we consider rider safety first, we have made this decision.

WVCC Oulton Park 2019 Round 2 –...

Well, the result of round 2 last night was a solid drenching of all the dedicated riders that turned out! Nevertheless, there was some excellent racing, especially in race 2, with a solo breakaway, that was never reeled in. Results and a few images below:

The prize included 3 nights bed and breakfast at Paul’s villa in Beniarrés, 2 days bike hire, transfers to/from Alicante. We decided to extend the stay by an extra night and secure two additional […]

Sorry guys. Tonight’s TT is now cancelled due to the two sets of traffic lights on the course, one of which stops us doing the 2 lap course as well. Please pass the message on to those who don’t check Facebook or the web site frequently. The work is scheduled to be completed this week, […]
