WVCC Oulton Park 2019 Round 3 –...

Again absolutely massive thanks to this crowd of judges plus the photographers and signers on. Who could have predicted that the weather would have been as bad as last week. Well it wasn’t, it was worse! Also thanks to motorbike Marshall’s and ambulance crew. Despite the atrocious weather we ran two successful races. Six hardy […]

Tour of the Abberleys – An idiot’s experience

For those of you who I have not already bored with the story of how I came to be in this mad event in the first place here goes – Alan Kemp, on my only Sat training ride of the year, smoothly cruised up next to me and in his silky persuasive tones asked if […]

Tim – the master of the bodge repair strikes again

The alarm had gone off and I was just starting to come to, when El rolled over and said ‘Kev do you know what I’d really like?’  Now the males amongst you will appreciate how a question like that can prompt over six hundred thoughts in under a second, all revolving around one subject.  However, […]

Club Runs are never boring with Chris B

I don’t know how these things happen, I guess it’s destiny (or stupidity) but I found myself leading a club run to Loggerheads with no planning and no Garmin (forgot to charge it). Now I know roughly where Loggerheads is and I’ve been there lots of times and my instinct was to go sort of […]

A Night ride with Andy

A Night ride with Andy

Not a great way to start a ride I thought as I redlined it through Northwich jumping red lights, mounting pavements, scattering mothers with small children, cutting up OAPs in wheelchairs and perhaps riskiest of all overtaking a police car on the inside.  However, as El will tell you I have never been wrong before […]

“This is crap I’m going home….”

… one of my wife’s more prophetic quotes.  To be honest I was surprised she had got this far, and this far was only 20 minutes from the start!  My early morning attempts at bravado had fallen on very suspicious ears.  ‘The weather looks fine, we can’t let Derek down, we won’t melt etc etc’ […]

“Ah – poor fools they’re with Kempy”

“Ah – poor fools they’re with Kempy”

Well as El had got up at 6 and cycled to work, I felt guilty enough to turn up for my first Saturday training ride.  I was wide awake anyway El doesn’t do anything quietly! Six intrepid souls were there, Alan K, Andy P, Kev C, Jon Conboy, Jules and myself.  In view of the […]
