The Early Days of Weaver Valley C.C.

Memories from former member Dan Preston. This is a blog that will probably be of more interest to our older members, but is nevertheless relevant as a record of the history of the club. This is a story of my experiences as a member of the Weaver Valley Cycling Club. It is not meant as […]

The Long Way Home

The highlight of Summer 2020 It’s taken a few months before I got around to writing this one up – I rode in August 2020, in that narrow window of opportunity to actually ride in and out of Wales between the waves of the pandemic! For a long time I’ve wanted to try riding to […]

New routes on the horizon…

Bit of a micro-blog, but relevant nevertheless. Yesterday, the 26th February 2021, the Silver Jubilee Bridge in Runcorn re-opened after 3 years. Why is this news and being posted on our web site? Simple. It is the first bridge locally that I know of that now has a dedicated and separated cycle roadway. That’s right. […]

The Big LEJOG Blog!

 LEJOG 28th May to 6th June 2015 Carl asked me if I would join him and 3 others on a ride from Lands End to John-O-Groats. It was to be part of his  celebrations for his 50th birthday. Having had a couple of health scares, stents in 2012 and then AF and an ablation in […]

COVID-19 Update

Given that the government announced changes and some relaxation to rules about time spent outdoors, this is just an update with regard to WVCC activities and cycling in general. There are still NO club activities. NO group rides, NO time trials, NO road or circuit racing until such time as we announce it. Do not […]

If you don’t have time to do them all focus on spinal and shoulder mobility and hip openers.  The roll down. Great for spinal mobility from the neck and will also stretch the glutes […]

How to cycle underneath a river

If I hadn’t seen a Sustrans post about it, I’d never have known about it, but visiting the Newcastle area now and again, I had to check it out. It’s a tunnel you see, under the River Tyne, but not your usual, cars, buses and other motorised transport affair, this was built for pedestrians and […]

ToB and WVCC

It’s been a great week thus far (and it’s only Wednesday) for the 2019 ToB, with the Green Jersey (for the overall leader of the race), swapping and changing. Facebook was busy with some vague plans for some who were interested to go and watch somewhere. I had plans just to cycle out to the […]

Drinking and Eating

Drinking and Eating

Have you ever wondered are you eating or drinking enough on your  30 to 100 mile training rides? Well going through my many cycling books it’s always a nice reminder when you come across a picture which reminds you!  and reminds you in a big way! and reminds you of the question! am I eating […]

In search of Peter Sagan

Inspired by the Boddington’s canal advert and 60s tv series White Horses, we decided to visit the (now triple) world champion’s home country and set off to do a small tour of Slovenia, putting off the hilly bit by starting from Venice. The bikes arrived safely in their cardboard boxes, courtesy of Easyjet and the […]

Cycling in the Hebrides – a bit...

I thought I’d spend a bit of time copying and pasting, to recount my week touring in the Inner and Outer Hebrides at the start of June 2017, and the nights are still dark, so, if you’re bored, or a just interested in reading a bit of a story (I say a bit, this is […]

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