Saturday night was the last night of the play my wife has been in, ‘Last of the Summer Wine’, not described by reviewers as, ‘a towering, emotional, epic, triumph’. Paula was excellent though. The play finishing was important (to me) as it meant that for the first time in ages I was able to go […]

Tigger and the Steam Train

Saturday morning saw a damp 12 degrees but as the day went on it warmed up and dried out to become a very pleasant, low wind, autumnal day. The crossroads at Hatchmere were positively busy as Jim D, Spanish Jed, Keith, Kevan, Eleanor, Jimmy, Ewart, Alex, Ben, Steve, Paddy and Me assembled in varying degrees of […]

Three punctures, feisty Kris Z and a ...

Today was a great day to be out on the bike; clear skies and fairly dry roads. Just about perfect aside from the strong headwind. My theory is that the winter wind is harder to get through as it is colder and hence denser. Is there any weight to this? The long run was not […]

The non club run club run.

When is a club run not a club run? What are the numbers needed to make the ride quorate and not just another ride? Is 2 enough? Rain was falling steadily when I left home this morning and by the time I arrived at the club the volume had increased somewhat. Imagine my delight at 28 […]

Weaver Valley CC Autumn Road Race, ri...

Sunday morning, a cold crisp day, just about perfect conditions for my first road race since July 2012. The six months I’ve been back on the bike have seen me progress from ‘fat middle aged man’ to ‘middle aged man’. Not bad really, you have to start somewhere and I had done as much as […]

Fooled by the forecast

Kev C, Matthew and myself

Ten souls were already assembled at the Hazel Pear when I got there just before 9.30 (I try to get to any rendezvous just a couple of minutes early as I hate waiting and getting cold). We were about half and half Weaver Valley and Warrington Road Club. The Weaver Valley half were me, Alan, […]

Loggerheads 10 September

Armwarmers or not armwarmers, that was the question faced on Sunday morning as it was bright and sunny but with a definite nip in the air first thing. No armwarmers for me. Bruce, Carol, Colin Walsh, Colin Wood, Craig, Mark, Paul, Stu, Tony and me set off for Loggerheads at a very civilised pace all […]

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