Club Dinner 2018 – get your tic...

Time flies, and here we are organising a Club Dinner again! Now it is in the calendar for Saturday 3rd February 2018 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 […]

Wrinklies Christmas Dinner 2017

There was some doubt as to whether weather conditions would improve today, but early in the morning there had been a convenient thaw, with the promise of filthy roads and rain. We’re on then. Up early, I festooned my bike with Christmas lights, and used bottle holder number 1 for a nice Malbec. After leaving […]

The challenge to find the Rickshaw, e...

Al had a good idea. As this year’s Children In Need Rickshaw Challenge was to pass within a hair’s breadth of us (well as near as Chelford anyway), Al thought it would be good and indeed different for us to ride down to see if we could cheer on the challenge, which was to ride […]

Clocks change this weekend!!

Don’t forget now will you? At 02:00 on the 29th 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 […]

WVCC Guardian Cup & Scratch Trop...

Well, a tougher night than we’ve had in a few weeks greeted the riders who were contesting the Final Fling, the overall Scratch, and most importantly, the Guardian Cup. Before this last round, Paul Connor found himself leading by a single point ahead of Tony Booth. tonight, it was an all out battle to improve […]

WVCC AGM 2017 – Tuesday 19th 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 […]

Guardian Cup and Scratch points after...

It couldn’t get more exciting with just 1 round to go in this year’s club time trial championships. The Guardian Cup is now hotly contested, with Paul Connor now only 1 point ahead of Tony Booth after spending most of the season way ahead. But, as more riders get to riding the maximum of 7 […]

Guardian Cup and Scratch points after...

Following a bit of a delay over summer, here are the updated points tables for the 2 competitions that we have running this year over our club 10 mile time trial series. Firstly, the Guardian Cup. We have 2 scoring rounds left this year. After round 9, Paul Connor has stretched out a nice lead […]

The ‘Cheshire is actually flat&...

On Saturday, amidst the chaos of the cancellation of cancelling the time trial, a few moments of respite gave way to conversations about club runs. Henrietta asked – ‘Where is the club run going to tomorrow?’ ‘It’s a TBA’ I suggested, ‘Rider’s choice, where do you want to go?’ ‘Somewhere flat and short’ came the […]

Bar, barbecue, cake…

A successful and enjoyable barbecue held on Saturday 29th July 2017. The weather, although slightly cooler, kept many in the bar (was that the reason, or just that the bar was open?). One of the evening’s highlight’s was the appearance of a specially baked and decorated cake, kindly made by Matt Buckley’s mum, showing our […]

Guardian Cup Round 7 – 5th July...

A clear, sunny and warm evening with barely a whiff of a breeze was almost perfect for some fast times. Indeed, despite some pre-race excuses, Jim Duffy stormed around the course for a mid 22, whilst others had the cup in their sights, determined to grab valuable seconds to convert to points. For the Guardian […]

Guardian Cup and Scratch 10s results ...

More controversial than Peter Sagan’s elbow, there have had to be some adjustments to the overall and cumulative points standings due to an error in recording the PBs from last year. Fortunately, I’m not going to be thrown off the tour, and the results have been corrected. Fewer riders were out last week, and therefore […]

As a club, we’d like to wish Andrew Simpson @simmo_on_sport all the best for the future, with a heartfelt thanks for supporting WVCC all these years....
