Dave Astles Cheshire Series #4 –...

The curtain came down on the series tonight,  and what a fantastic series it has been, well done to all the organisers, very safe and very well run as usual. I suppose first of all, I think I need to give the TLI National Closed Circuit race last Sunday a bit of a mention, not […]

Dave Astles Cheshire Series – Event 3...

A fine sunny evening with scorching temperatures of around 16 deg greated riders as they arrived at the HQ, a far cry from events when I last raced here 2 weeks ago. I didnt have this race in mind when I entered the Tour of the Peak a few months ago, it seemed like a […]

Dave Astles Cheshire Series – E...

  This series, in memory of the late Dave Astles, brings the start of the TLI evening events, and just as it did last year, we saw a build of 4 seasons in one day with Sun, Rain, Hail, Sleet, Wind & Cold change a number of times throughout the day. As it turned out, […]

Macc Wheelers 25 – J2/9

I dont think I thought it through when I entered this event! I came home yesterday from a great 10 Days in Majorca, riding in general, every other day completing 470 miles and over 26000 ft of climbing. It dawned on me, as much as I wanted too, that it would not be a good […]

Withington Wheelers – 25m TT (J...

So today was the official start of my TT season. Cheshire TT courses are renowed for not being the quickest, so I was surprised when the start sheet came out with an enormous field of 150 names on it, in addition there was a further event before hand for Novice riders which included a further […]

The Curse of The Nova 2up!

The Curse of The Nova 2up!

Some of you may recall my previous experience of this event when I last rode it 3 years with Dave Fearon, my tri bar fell out, so I spent much if the ride with it bouncing off the front wheel. I started the morning off by actually getting my TT bike down for the first […]

Wild Wales Challenge – Trophy Award

August Bank holiday seems such a long time ago now, but for those who rode the Wild Wales challange, the best kept secret in cycling, it will be remembered as a glorious, if challenging day. Yesterday we were awarded the coveted Harold Kewish Trophy for the club team with most finishers, WVCC had twenty five […]

Long Run – The No Car Cafe

Well, the plan was to go over to Tea on the Green at Chinley as a precursor to next weeks Wild Wales Challange, however, I had already suspected that Tea on the Green may not be large enough with everyone making a last ditch effort to get miles and hills in the legs, so I […]

Pendle Forest L015 10 – 30th July 2016

I do not generally enter many open 10’s, indeed the last one I entered was March 14, however, inspired by Jim Williams performance in Hull a few weeks back, and my wish to obtain a sub 22:30 to obtain the senior gold standard, I entered this a few weeks back. As It happens, I actually […]
