Audlem RR Series Event 1 (of 4)

Audlem is lucky to have 2 road race circuits that comply with the rules, however, last weeks event was cancelled as both had road works on, so tonight’s event became the first on the series of 4. Condidtions were dry with a bit of a breeze, it was initially quite cool considering we are now […]

Otley CC 50 – The No Gaffa Tape...

Many of you will remember Dave Fearon’s epic ride a couple of years ago when he had to Gaffa tape his trainers to his pedals as he forgot his shoes, well this was the same event. As many of you know, I am no stranger to getting up early, but when the alarm went off […]

Warrington Road Club TTT – J2/9

Warrington Road Club TTT – J2/9

Chris Gilbertson, Jim Williams, Jo Blakeley and Jim Duffy all took part in the WRC 4 up last night, the target was to secure win the fastest team with a Lady. Conditions were perfect. Five teams were eligible, we were off 2nd at 6:48 behind Knutsford Tri, it was the first time we had actually […]

Oulton Park Race Series – Event...

First things first, what a wonderful club we have, its great to see so may members coming along to help, too many to mention, but without which, these events wouldn’t be possible. Jim Williams also did a fantastic job, even though he couldn’t remember his off on Saturday, he fortunately remembered to order the weather 🌞, […]

Stretford Wheelers/ M&D Ladies 25...

Dave came up with some random excuse for not writing today’s race report so handed the batten to me!!!! Whilst the weather looked good, sunshine and no wind, it wasn’t really the best conditions for a TT, it was clammy, no air, and just plain horrible! There is normally some kind a wind, one way […]

Race Report – Dave Astles Memor...

Last night was the 4th and final event in the Dave Astles Memorial Cheshire Series. The whole series has been well organised and thankfully incident free. With Iain marshaling and Jules stuck at work, it left Kev (in the over 55s), Mark Adshead and myself (in the 45-54s) to fly the WVCC flag. Conditions were […]

Jim “the b@st#rd”

Jim “the b@st#rd”

With the recent racing on a Sunday, I had been missing the good old club run, and with Pott Shrigley on the calendar, I thought it would be quicker to ride another 20 miles or so to Chinley rather than wait to get served and to pay there! So I changed the calendar a few […]

The Sun Shines on the Righteous

The last time a large group assembled to head off to Ruthin back in February saw us absolutely drenched by the time we got there. Remember these????? Well not this time, In fact Factor 50 was the order of the day as we all doned shorts and short sleeve jerseys for first time this year. […]

Race Report – Cheshire Series &...

Tuesday evening saw the 2nd of the 4 event series in the Dave Astles Memorial Cheshire Series. Previously this was raced on the 5 mile circuit at Lower Withington, now the 10 mile circuit at Siddington due to the highly publicised Police restrictions on Cheshire. The evening also brought much better weather and was considerably warmer last week […]

Stafford RC / Stone Wheelers RR Serie...

My morning started by reading the results for Kevan Underhill’s exploits for the tour of the Abbeleys, I did giggle to myself when I read the advice from Kempy, “just clip off the front” he said, if only it was easy as that!!! Anyway, on to my race, this was my third race in this […]

Stafford RC / Stone Wheelers RR Serie...

Stafford RC / Stone Wheelers RR Series – Event 2

Another frosty start to Sundays proceedings with the 2nd event of 4. This initially should have been held at Audlem, unfortunately, due to Roadworks, the organisers managed to get a last minute change through the police so we were back at Swynnerton. By the time the race started at 10 am, the the sun was […]

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