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. […]

Bickerstaffe Road Race

Bickerstaffe Road Race! I’m home, showered and sunburned after my first real crack at a road race, so with beef hula hoops in hand I thought I’d write a blog – not least because I promised Mr Geoff Lovelady that I’d provide a summary. I entered Bickerstaffe several months ago whilst planning out my year […]

Loggerheads on sugar

All things considered (Llanberis panic training), it was a fairly small contingent at the Rugby Club on Sunday morning. The weather was really mild compared to recent weeks so it was set to be a nice clear day on the bike for all, with just a bit of wind to contend with. Having ridden 85 […]

A soggy, windy Withington Wheelers 10...

My primary thoughts when getting ready for the ten today were whether I should take the dog with me for a change or not, as I was worrying that with it being stuffy I’d come back to a Baked Bodi. I decided in the end that it was cloudy and cool enough so off we […]

CSP Summer Crit – a first try a...

So, Mr Ady Japp has been daft enough to provide me with blog access! Though I promise to use it for the greater good of cycling and not to bang on about food – as delicious as nachos may be. As most of you know, I’ve spent the year steadily upping the racing I do […]

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