VTTA – Manchester & NW Gro...

Hello Everyone At the last AGM of Manchester & NW Group of the Veterans Time Trials Association, we had a discussion about the desirability of letting more competitive cyclists aged 40+ know about the VTTA and so we have put together the attached A5 promotional leaflet. VTTA Manchester & NW Group Flier Thanks and best wishes Brian […]

New cafe stop, new riders to feed

New cafe stop, new riders to feed

It was a very good day for a ride for those new to road cycling with a group, and so we had four who turned up today to see what we are about. Three ladies, Lynn (who had been out with us once before), Nikki, and Debbie, and a returning ex-WVCC member in the form […]

Mow Cop, the not club run

The weather was too nice, so it had to be a day off. A shout out on Faceache, and a few others joined the fray. Em, who also booked the day off work, and Jim and Syd, official wrinklies, who booked a day off being retired and joined me for a bit of a reconnaissance ride […]

Club 10s – Practice 10 – ...

What a beautiful night for hurting yourself on a club TT! None of the hailstone and changeable weather of last week, just sunshine, and a breeze to help you along the A50, (but against you on the way home). 29 riders came out to test their mettle and some very good times were recorded. The […]

Club 10s – Gents 2 up 27/04/201...

Hay-ho, the wind and the rain, and the hail and another three season day… The first club TT of the season is always a bit of fun. Loads of early season anticipation, and an ideal time to ride a two-up time trial and ease yourself into the race of truth! We were joined by Robbi Unwin this […]

Cafe? I see no Cafe!

A cool and bright sunny morning had us battling through the crowds at the rugby club to get to the club for this morning’s runs. The crowds were for a host of rugby matches held today. The long run was due to go to Loggerheads, but no-one seemed enthusiastic about taking it, so we split the […]

Une belle journée et un tour de cycle...

A beautiful and a lovely cycle ride… (excuse my French). Chilly, bright, a good day for a beginner’s ride, and a few beginners turned out, as well as a returning beginner and a young lady called Shelagh, who made a welcome return to the Sunday run to brighten the day further. We headed out through […]

Clocks go forward – summer club...

Yes girls and boys, as long as it isn’t wet, you can ditch your mudguards and come along half an hour earlier than normal! Clocks go forward this weekend, and we’ll be meeting at 09:30 from now till the clock go back again.

Spin Cycling Festival – Free ti...

If you are interested or already intending to go to the Spin Cycling Festival in Manchester at the start of May – stop – don’t buy tickets! The organisers have offered free tickets to Weaver Valley CC members. All you need to do is drop me an email, and I’ll send you a code that you […]

M&DTTA – Call for voluntee...

Please take some time to read the latest M&DTTA newsletter below, and see if you can assist in keeping the sport alive locally. All such cycling events are manned by volunteers, and there are fewer and fewer new volunteers stepping up to take part and contribute in keeping our great discipline of time-trialling alive. Manchester […]

Sunny days? Fresh air? Easy cycling? ...

Well I’ll tell you. There was only the slightest ‘cool’ to the air this morning, and as we gathered at the club amongst the usual throng of kids and adults about to play rugby, the sun popped out to say ‘hi’, as it did last week as well. Most odd. Two groups headed out in […]

Helping set course today for @WeaverValleyCC for @nwcca race tomorrow. I hope the wind dies down! 🌪
