Guardian Cup 10 – Round 4 ̵...

Guardian Cup 10 – Round 4 – 31st May 2017

Another good night with a slight amount of rain but nothing to dampen the spirits.  Our humble club 10’s are attracting some quality riders these days with Olympic champions and pros last week and this week Simon Bridge, a regular winner in time trials and road races in the Manchester Area and recently moved to […]

Stone Wheelers 25 – 20th May 20...

Stone Wheelers 25 – 20th May 2017

This is the fastest course in the Manchester District on the A50 at Blythe Bridge.  It is also very likely that this will the last event on this road for a few seasons if not ever, as major road-works over the coming years will prevent racing.  So the event was massively over subscribed and the […]

Club 10’s – Guardian Cup Round 2 – 17th May 2017

Another good night after the light rain of the afternoon with little wind and some good times recorded. Not quite as fast as last week but no complaints apart from the usual excuses.  Jim Duffy showed his blistering form with a near PB for club 10’s of 22:42 but his PB was set on a much […]

M&DTTA 25 Championship – 13...

M&DTTA 25 Championship – 13th May 2017

Today was the Manchester District 25 mile championship and as has been the trend this season to date, it was massively oversubscribed with getting on for 200 entries for 120 places.  Fortunately the event was a preference to Manchester DC riders so all of the returned entries were people from other areas. Weaver Valley had […]

Club 10’s – Guardian Cup Round 1 – 10th May 2017

Last night saw the start of the Season long club 10’s and this Year the format of the series has changed slightly.  Previously the series was a handicap competition with points gained in each riders’ 5 best rides counting towards their final score in the Guardian Cup.  However there are 10 rounds in total so […]

Manchester DC Newsletter & Marshalling Register

Below is a link to the latest CTT newsletter for our District.  Also a new initiative has been set-up to encourage more people to volunteer a small amount of time to help out at events thus securing the future of the sport.  Participant numbers are up but unfortunately races are dropping off the calendar due […]

Dukinfield CC 50 – 6th May 2017

Dukinfield CC 50 – 6th May 2017

This first 50 of the Year in Cheshire has an amazing history.  It has been held every Year since 1928 and the Dukinfield Cyclists’ Club which is one of the oldest clubs in Britain was already 43 years old that year.  That first event was won by W.Ward of the Stretford Wheelers with a time […]

M&DLCA & East Lancs RC 10’s – 29th April 2017

Due to popular demand (from Jim Duffy as he hates writing reports), I am posting my first TT report of the Year.  Jim posted the others because this year I started racing much later than usual due to various holidays and annoying things like work getting in the way of my cycling. The afternoon started […]

Manchester DC – Future of Time ...

Manchester DC – Future of Time Trialling

Attached is the latest Manchester DC newsletter highlighting the discussions that took place back in November, at a conference to discuss the future of the sport.  Bottom line is that we need more people to help so if you would like to put something back into the sport, read on and get in touch with […]

Stone Wheelers 25 – 10th September 2016

Time triallists talk about “Float days” which come along very rarely but when  they do it just feels fast in all directions.  Today was such a day and those who were lucky enough to ride made the most of it as the J5/8 course at Blythe Bridge is the quickest one in the area and […]

WVCC Club Championship 12 Hour –...

It’s funny how these things come about as all 3 riders who entered the 12 hour this Year didn’t have it on their radar until very recently.  Jim’s amazing 24 hour epic was definitely the catalyst, so thanks for that Jim (not)!  I asked Jim a while ago if he was going to make the most […]

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....
