Three Peaks Cyclocross

Titch was enjoying it really. Below are Kev and Dane – see Eleanors report on the forum – plus a picture of a more sedate ride I did with Ann on Saturday over some great old packhorse tracks

Off-Road weekend Coed y Brenin and beyond

A report by Eleanor which has been copied over from the forum (so that everyone can read it and see the photos here) Having read Kev’s post (I despair of the man) I feel I should counter with a straight version – but there again, maybe I should leave that to readers’ imaginations! At the […]

Lakes Off Road with a difference

Lakes Off Road with a difference

So many people were on holiday that only Kev Underhill and I were free for an off road weekend 26 & 27 July. So we (or at least I) had an interesting idea. Camp at Borrowdale Friday night, then ride over to Wasdale Saturday morning in time for the Lingmell Dash, which is a fell running […]

Off Road ride Delamere

Off Road ride Delamere

Lovely day for a blast round the forest. Some new faces in the shape of Stu and Andy and good to see Geoff back – so 9 in totalSteve shows Andy and El how to cross the bridge (good to see he’s using his retirement wisely) Paul making easy work of the rickety bridge in […]

Uplift means you only have to ride downhill, so Andy, Mathew and I enjoyed 11 downhill runs of the Jympar and Drift trails, getting a lift in a minibus back up to the top every time. See Matthew at and Andy too It’s a fantastic facility with some very rocky, technical and tricky trails. We only […]

Off Road Ride Delamere 2 Nov

Off Road Ride Delamere 2 Nov

Due to the “Hell Run” taking place we headed over to Primrose Wood where the mud wasn’t too thick. 5 of us out – Steve M fresh from his Scottish climbing trip, Paul H who had already ridden 16 miles off-road from Middlewich, Chris G who had a tangle with a fallen branch which resulted […]

Cyclo Cross Sat 19 Oct Greenbank

Cyclo Cross Sat 19 Oct Greenbank

Another successful event due to the fantastic help and support of so many WVCC members. The change from Sunday to Saturday seemed to go down well – club members can still enjoy their Sunday Run (although the weather might not be as good – thank goodness we got packed up before the thunderstorm!). Full results and a report […]

Off Road Ride – Wayfarer track Sat 20 July

Best turn out for a while with 7 of us heading over the Wayfarer track to Llandrillo from Llanarmon at the head of the beautiful Ceiriog valley. Steve M, Kev U, Rob J & Stevie C, Matthew & Derek and a recovering me rode up to the high point of the Wayfarer where a memorial […]

Borderlands Mountainbike Challenge 11...

Borderlands Mountainbike Challenge 11 May

This was the WVCC team for the 20th anniversary of this great fundraising event. The weather was chilly, but much better than forecast and the going firm most of the way round. Despite my decisive attack up the first hill,Tim reeled me in and rode away to be quickest of our team. I had a good gap on […]

Off road weekend 13 &14 April

Off road weekend 13 &14 April

Saturday saw four of us head off from Hawkshead through the Grizedale Forest onto this fantastic bridleway which gave us superb views over Lake Coniston to the Old Man beyond ( that’s a mountain by the way, not one off our club members).  Kev & El (who seem to always know these routes from previous Polaris […]

Off Road ride 6 April

Off Road ride 6 April

A fabulous sunny spring day saw four of us set out on the superb Penmachno trail. This was Tim former WVCC’s Anne on loop 2 (which we did first). Anne and Ann carried on  together while Tim and I rode both loops before lunch back at the Conway Falls cafe. The conditions were pretty good most […]

Club runs are back in the calendar for our members and new riders who are looking to join.
