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 […]

Guardian Cup – Points after 4 rounds

Guardian Cup – Points after 4 rounds

Jim Duffy recording an excellent PB in round 4, and grabbed max. Guardian Cup points in the process. Paul Connor yet again improved on his time to gain 24 points, and has put in quite a lead thus far in the competition. The only other person to improve this evening was Clare Hargreaves, who looks to […]

Guardian Cup – Points after 3 rounds

Guardian Cup – Points after 3 rounds

Ahead of tonight’s TT (only just!!), here are the results after 3 Guardian Cup rounds. Of note is Paul Connor, who gained another clutch of points this last week to launch him into 1st place overall,  but also new member Clare Hargreaves, who bagged maximum points last week by shaving off 106 seconds from her […]

Club 10’s – Guardian Cup Round 3 – 24...

Club 10’s – Guardian Cup Round 3 – 24th May 2017

A warm sunny evening with a light breeze brought a large field out for a Wednesday 10. A mix of club members battling for Guardian Cup points, and non-members out for their time against the clock. Fastest time of the evening was that of our own Matt Nowell, now pro rider with Bike Channel Canyon […]

Guardian Cup – Points after 2 r...

Ahead of round 3 tomorrow, here are the standings thus far. Still early days, but early improved rides from Ben Jones and Paul Connor mean that they are at the top of the table in positions 1 and 2 respectively, with Dave Fearon also showing early season form. All to play for though, and plenty […]

WVCC Club 10s – Practice 10 ...

Wow was it windy tonight!! A tough night for all, with an unusual head wind off the start and indeed all the way to Toft and the turn back into Middlewich Road for the last 3.something miles! Tonight was about a solo practice and for setting a handicap time for this year’s 10s (unless you […]

Ron Sant 110km Audax 2017 – a v...

..to report on another great Audax. Derek does a great job with this Audax year on year, and we were presented with a good route, (starting with toast and a brew at the club), taking in familiar lanes around Cheshire, the Wirral, over the border into North Wales and back again. The first third of […]

WVCC Club 10s – Gents 2-Up R...

A windy night, but at least it was dry! There was a dark cloud looming in the sky, but it looked as though we’d avoid it bar the odd spot of precipitation. Seven pairs lined up and four solo riders, and thus, this year’s club 10s began… Results below. Next week, the setting of handicaps […]
