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 […]

Loggerheads on sugar

All things considered (Llanberis panic training), it was a fairly small contingent at the Rugby Club on Sunday morning. The weather was really mild compared to recent weeks so it was set to be a nice clear day on the bike for all, with just a bit of wind to contend with. Having ridden 85 […]

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 […]

Alpine mountain biking – yikes!

Alpine mountain biking – yikes!

When I booked us both onto a cross country Alpine MTB week (with a company called Trail Addiction, in the French Alps near Les Arcs) I had the idea we’d be riding on beautiful contouring trails, through Alpine wild flower meadows, under snow-capped mountain peaks. The chap I liaised with assured me that the riding […]

Mersey RC 24 Hour National Championsh...

First of all a big congratulations to Jimmy Williams for completing the Mersey RC & National 24 Hour championship this weekend.  The result and everything else are just part of the (lengthy sorry), story and we’ll get on to that, but the achievement for every rider is just getting to the finish.  Jim will create […]

The real long run

The real long run

Well Kev and I opted for the “shorter long run”, but as ours was run by a real WVCC rider in proper kit, whilst the other long run was run by some imposter in Dulwich Paragon kit (he needs to speak to the WVCC kit secretary), we considered ours was the real long run. Jules […]

Club 50 mile Champs – 18th June...

Club 50 mile Champs – 18th June 2016

  Today was the M&DTTA 50 mile champs incorporating the WVCC club champs.  A large field of 105 riders was on the start list and WVCC had 5 entrants.  First off was yours truly feeling OK but a little worried after spending 25 hours on planes this week flying to San Francisco on Monday and […]

Anfield BC 100 – 30th May 2016

Anfield BC 100 – 30th May 2016

This is a classic in the World of Time trialling as this event has been held since 1889 and the list of winners is a who’s who in our sport.  The course is largely on quiet single carriageway roads and unfortunately the start time is 6:01am!😟 Only two brave (stupid) souls met the starter and […]

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....
