Cheshire (Holt )series no.4

Reading Time: < 1 minute By Sam Taylor The final round of the popular Wednesday night races tonight with Lloyd Smith, Jeff Wood and myself in the first race and John Keen in the second. I’ve had mixed luck so far in the series with a fourth and a last after getting caught in a crash on the last bend […]

Steve Jones Memorial RR 26/5.2024

Reading Time: 2 minutes Raced over 6 laps (60 miles) of the pretty flat Holt circuit, there was a good, strong field – my group (D) were racing with the younger (C) group, this can sometimes make things go a bit quicker than they otherwise would. The promised thunderstorm kept off for the race which was a good bonus. […]

Whitchurch, The Sheep Shed 18/2/24

Reading Time: 2 minutes Another nice, mild and not particularly windy day had John K, Geoff M, Rich M, Emily M, Sam T and Carl J take a meandering ride out to a new club destination, The Sheep Shed near Whitchurch. It was generally a pretty flat ride but the hills, as much as they were, came before we […]

Pontcysyllte Chapel Tea Room 4/2/2024

Reading Time: 2 minutes Another mild day yesterday and there were 5 eager faces at the start, Sam, Emily, Jeff F, Alex and Me (I was definitely a little jaded after yesterday’s exertions on and off the bike). We picked up Ross at Whitegate and the 6 of us headed off in to the stiffening breeze taking ad-hoc turns […]

Saturday ride to Holt 3/2/24

Reading Time: < 1 minute The 2 Carls, Andy E, Benn, Craig, Geoff, Kev and me tipped up at Hatchmere this morning & it was positively spring-like. Not a quick day, we all stayed together but Kev and big Carl needed to get home so didn’t do the BOD loop & went straight to Holt. The remaining 6 of us […]

Malpas 21/01/2024

Reading Time: 2 minutes Jeff, Carl, Sam, Emily, Stuart, Dave, Paul, Graham, Neil and me turned up for duty at 9.30 this morning, a mild but damp day. The route was the old Saturday training ride but heading to Malpas. Emily suggested a brand new cafe that she was quite excited about going to, having never tried it, The […]

Saturday training ride 20/01/2024

Reading Time: < 1 minute I drove out to the club this morning and arrived late which meant a rapid ride out to Hatchmere. I made pretty good time and arrived to see several rear lights disappearing in to the forest. I caught up with Carl, Geoff and Alex and the 4 of us were a good unit into the […]

Long club ride to Higher Kinnerton

Reading Time: < 1 minute Today’s long ride to Higher Kinnerton saw 7 of us set off in chilly, damp conditions. I initially had concerns about black ice but it warmed up and started raining a bit. We had a pretty uneventful and pleasant 30 miles to Walters cafe. My first time there & my feedback is; on a nice […]

Bickerstaffe RR 20th July 2023

Reading Time: 2 minutes Super 4, Bickerstaffe RR Time and again I get too carried away with myself in races, doing too much, covering too much and not being there at the pointy end of the day. Slowly but surely I am learning… ish. It was a nice, dry evening yesterday although with a stiff breeze. Once the lead […]
