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 […]

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 […]

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 ...

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 […]

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....
