Cheshire Classic 2016 Cancelled

We are sorry to announce that the 2016 edition of the Cheshire Classic Women’s Road Race has had to be cancelled. A suitable course which met both the Cycle Racing on the Highway Regulations Act 1960 and a British Cycling risk assessment could not be found. This is not a decision that I, Andy Wood, […]

Henbury (Short Run) – 17th June 2013

I think it was a first, other than during late January and February, that more people headed on the long run than the short! For those that headed on the short run, the destination was chosen as Henbury to be lead by Ian Smith as Al was having a weekend off on the back of […]

Holt (Short Run) – 12th May 2013

Still gripped with Cheshire Classic fever it was great to see so many ladies out at the Legion this morning including Nikki, Elaine, El and new rider Nicky. Nicky’s story is a good one, in that having always enjoyed cycling she’s been building up the miles ready for a London to Paris attempt. She caught […]

Summertrees (Short Run) – 7th April 2013

To celebrate the club run returning to it’s 9.30 (booo = less sleep) Summer start time, Al put together a classic route to take the short run to Summertrees. A route steeped in heritage, created by a certain Terry Veal years ago which features every hill en-route including The Yeld and Chapel Lane (the hard […]

Easter Sunday Club Run – 31st March 2013

Although he couldn’t be with us today, Al was kind enough to keep the start time of today’s club run at the usual Winter time of 10am, with the clocks going forward this was much appreciated. The other reason for keeping the time at 10am for this weekend was due to the past couple of […]

Freewheel Comp – 27th January 2013

2012 freewheel winner John Keen maintained bragging rights for another year as he took victory on a very windy Siddington Hill which saw probably the shortest freewheel competition in the club’s history. A good crowd rolled up to the Legion this morning, the 2 inches of snow on Friday evening had been washed away by […]

Henbury (Short Run) – 13th January 2013

Waking up to frost tinged surroundings and a delightful temperature of -2 does make it hard to pull yourself out of bed. Seemingly a lot of people had the same thought with only a handful of riders turning up to the Legion this morning. Graham was on hand with the club dinner tickets and was […]

Radway Green (Short Run) – 6th January 2013

For many it was to be the first club run of 2013, for all it was the first official club run of 2013 because last week 1. there wasn’t a set destination and 2. I wasn’t there either. Despite the long run departing 30 minutes earlier on their epic trek to Loggerheads, there was still […]

Audlem (Short Run) – 18th November 2012

Dead ends aren’t good. If you see a sign which says dead end and cycle down it, you know there is going to be trouble at the end. Be it rough cycleway, hauling bikes over gates, squeezing through gaps or narrow bridges. When Graham Gregory lead the short run down a dead end 5 miles […]

Riverside Cafe Chester (Short Run) – 11.11.12

Today’s short run ventured to Riverside Cafe in Chester. A beautiful sunny morning saw a good crowd of around 40 roll up at the Legion. Being Rememberance Sunday we were joined by a band unfortunately they didn’t give us a tune! 3 runs saw Ian Smith and Craig take a small sized group over to […]

Tour of Britain Run to Gun Hill

Tour of Britain Run to Gun Hill

The organisers had once again added the Stoke on Trent stage to the Tour of Britain calendar and it would have been rude to have not ventured along. Last year only 5 of the Weaver Valley ventured to top of Gun Hill but with Wiggins & Cav fever still in the air a big group […]

Malpas that turned into Holt (Short Run) – 19th August 2012

Sunshine and barmy temperatures greeted everyone at the Legion this morning. A strong turnout with a good 30 strong riders looking to take on rides to Malpas or Prees. With no people jumping up and down to take up the lead to Prees we all headed out together before a breakaway group formed just before […]

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....
