Llandegla lightbulb moment.

Llandegla lightbulb moment.

Due to the expectancy of a low turn out, and the enthusiasm for the riding around the Howgills that was the plan for our away-day this month, we decided defer and just go for a blast round Llandegla forest. OK, so not the epic trek that was planned, but I’ve never come away from Llandegla […]

Winch ‘n Plummet

Winch ‘n Plummet

This weeks ride was pinched from The Edge Cycleworks website. This is a brilliant resource for off road trips around North Wales and England, but a few days before we went I’d been thinking that 24 miles might be a bit short, would be done by just after lunch, so perhaps it needed a bit […]

Mountain bikes – uniting cyclis...

Mountain bikes – uniting cyclists since 1230*

*That’s 1230 hrs, not 1230 AD.

But I digress, because the main point of this blog to tell you about our ride this weekend. Some […]

Delamere Learners and Lazies day.

Delamere, differently familiar.

Delamere, differently familiar.

The first Saturday of February offered us mountain bikers near perfect conditions for our traditional Delamere local ride. Given the lack of rain we’ve had over the last couple of weeks the trails definitely lacked the “quagmire” label that they often attract over the winter months, and where the damp did remain for the most […]

Llandegla in the snow.

Llandegla in the snow.

So, my inaugural jaunt as the MTB secretary. At this juncture I’ll just say a massive thanks to Nick for doing this for all the past years, I love mountain biking, and the rides he’s organised have been a huge part of that. My plan for an early than usual start option were a bit […]

As a club, we’d like to wish Andrew Simpson @simmo_on_sport all the best for the future, with a heartfelt thanks for supporting WVCC all these years....
