Llanberis Training Weekend 2014 – Highs and lows, wind and rain, smiles and grimaces

Thanks Firstly, without any further ado, or leaving it as a footnote, a massive, massive thanks must go out to Graham and Ann, who have worked up to this weekend, and throughout it, to make sure that all riders were safe and sound. From beginning to end, they have selflessly looked after us all! Llanberis […]

Club Dinner and Awards 2014

A great evening was had by all at the dinner, and we were joined by members of the Short family (relatives of the late Alan Short), who gave us the Alan Short prize for Club Person of the Year – and for the first year, the deserved winner was Alan Silver. As our honoured guest, […]

Dry and wet

Dry and wet

A fantastic bright and sunny day greeted us the day after the club dinner (see post above), and those who took it easy at the dinner, and quite a few more – all turned up to take advantage of the weather, and head of to the Mills. As per usual, the group split into a […]

Club Track Night 13/02/2014

Club Track Night 13/02/2014

As a welcome change from all the wind and rain, Nick booked a track session for the 13th. A good number gathered, and spent an excellent couple of hours under the expert tuition of Paul West, who controlled proceedings, made sure we behaved, and gave us some excellent training and track experience. We were split […]

Short and breezy to Summertrees, with the odd hill for good measure

A few hills were in order today, to get the last bit of training in before some proper hills on the Llanberis training weekend, so a devious route was required, as it isn’t far from Hartford to the café. Al didn’t disappoint, and we turned right and right again out of the car park, and […]

A bit of windy, rainy Freewheeling

A bit of windy, rainy Freewheeling

At 09:55, I turned up at the legion, to see a lonely club run leader. I had already battled the first 12 miles of the day into the wind, and did expect a few more attendees for the comp. and to get the extra miles in. Most probably had the sense to go out on […]

Cycling, and hairdressing?

Cycling, and hairdressing?

Alan lost count of the amount of riders pitching up at the Legion this morning. It is January, and there are many (me included) who have started a little late with getting the winter miles in. With Llanberis looming, and without the ominous grey clouds of the 1st 3 weeks of Jan, a goodly number […]

“Flat, Alan said…” – Ice Cream Farm – short (flat) club run

A dull and cool day met us at the legion this morning, with a healthy throng of eager riders pitching up as usual for the 2 runs. The long one headed off to Prees, whilst the short run was to head off to the Ice Cream Farm via an as yet unknown route. Alan announced […]

Of cake and men (and a few ladies)…

A fantastic sunny autumn morning greeted the 9 of us opting for a short run. We meandered out through Comberbach and out towards Tatton, followed by pleasant lanes through Ashley, a short detour under the airport and then an extra loop back around to Ashley, before cutting across to skirt Hale and then to the […]

Helping set course today for @WeaverValleyCC for @nwcca race tomorrow. I hope the wind dies down! 🌪 pic.twitter.com/c06JEpWqY1
