21st Sept Stretford Wheelers 25TT (an...

Saturday the 21st of September was the last Cheshire TT for a few of our club, namely Sam Taylor, Ali Stanway, Andy Milligan, Carol & Dan Robson, Dave Curran and myself. For me personally it was a welcome end to the season after racing since March and feeling pretty tired of late, so a final […]

Withington Wheelers 10TT – J2/3

We’re steadily heading toward the end of the road racing and time trialling season, and today’s 10TT by Withington Wheelers was a late add on after an event was cancelled with bad weather (I think!) earlier in the year. For the last J course 10 of the season, the entrants were Sam Taylor, Lynsey Astles, […]

That 25mile TT club record…

The women’s 25-mile club record has been an elusive one for me, firstly because it’s not something I thought I’d be worrying about when I started time trialling, and secondly because the club weren’t 100% sure what it was! With Dave Fearon saying “I’m sure Jackie White dipped under the hour in the 80s!” However, […]

Club records 2019 – the story s...

As per Ady’s post on Facebook, it’s better for the club’s records if we blog results so that they’re in chronological and easier to find. With this in mind, here’s a record of the club champ results so far this year, with only the 12hr and hill climb left this season… 10 mile champs – […]

SCCA 100TT

The 4am alarm rang this morning and I think Sam and I were too nervous about falling asleep to even consider a snooze, so up we got, dragged ourselves into some clothes, made some coffee and got on the road; leaving the poor dog mystified as to what the hell was going on. The last […]

M&DLCA 10 – 29/06/2019

The Manchester and District Ladies’ Cycling Association Ladies Open Handicapped and Men’s Invitation 10 mile Time Trial Course J2/3 Report: Emily Martin. Race Images: Adrian Japp Not a nice day for a TT today, we were all beading with sweat just putting our socks on in the 28 degree heat! Plus it was deceivingly windy […]

Warrington Road Club 4 Up TT

I’m just on a wind down after a fantastic night on the bike, so thought I’d write a blog about how tonight’s team time trial went… I remember in 2016 heading out with Elaine to watch a team of Jim Duffy, Jim Williams, Chris Gilbertson and Jo Blakeley ride the same 4 up in a […]

Hi All, I just wanted to update you on club kit, and also on ordering for this winter. As you know, the last order we placed was with Giordana, as we’d been given a great offer by the company and wanted to save some money on kit. Most of what we got was great, sold […]

R25/3H 25TT

After encouragement from Dave Fearon, I entered the R25/3H 25TT a few months ago, then looked at where the course actually was and realised it was in the southest of Wales! So I planned a couple of nights away with lovely friends who live in Gloucester which meant I could see them and also halve the […]

Club Kit – Please Read

Bioracer increased their prices by an average of 14% for this year, due to an increase in costs and material prices. We discussed this at a committee meeting and agreed that whilst Bioracer are a great kit supplier in terms of kit quality and service, we also need as a club to offer cheaper kit; […]

WVCC Kit – New Administrator

Hi everyone, as I’ve newly taken over as kit secretary from Jim Duffy, I thought I’d do a post to update for those not already aware. I’ve sold a few bits of kit over the last couple of weeks, so thought I’d just update with the latest stocks. Below shows what we have in from […]

Fifty miler TT

Finally found some time to write a blog about my fifty miler TT at the weekend… So, in an effort to keep my much loved ladies BAR trophy I knew I needed to complete a 50 this year – a distance I always dread because it feels like a forever sat in a TT position. […]

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....
