Pre workout mobilisation exercises

Here are a few exercises for you to do before you start your workout aimed at mobilising various joint and muscles. 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

Warrington R.C. 50 – 28/05/2016

A quick report on today’s local open TT.  3 WVCC riders started but sadly only 2 finished as Caroline Fearon retired at 34 miles but will be back for more next week. Second quickest in our colours was Alan Shuttleworth riding fixed wheel and he was happy with his time of 2:31:24.  Alistair Stanway was […]

The “almost as fast as the fast training ride” ride

Well this one was an eye-opener. I’d not done this training run before and it felt very different from a club run. We met at Hatchmere at 10 and right from the start it felt like I was hanging on. With me were Jim Williams, aka Cancellara, patron of the peloton, who professed to feeling […]

Cycling coaching

Hi fellow Weaver Valley members, Would you like to become a better bike rider? I am training to be a British Cycling Level 2 coach, and over the next few weeks I need to deliver some coached sessions to a group of riders, ideally 6-10.  I would like to know if anyone in the club […]

The Weaver Valley Autumn Road Race – a race organiser’s perspective…

2015 – Weaver Valley CC Autumn Road Race – 11 10 15 – Results Well in the end all went well, but this race was never straightforward. Cheshire Police decided some time ago to ban any races using laps of 10 miles or less, so our race was in doubt. Then Graham Gregory came up […]

Non competitive cycling, an alien concept for some…

Well what a fantastic turnout for the Northwich Pedal Power festival, with a few hundred riders setting off on various length rides this morning. I ended up with a large group on the 70 mile ride, which followed a beautiful circuitous route which criss-crossed betweeen Middlewich, Winsford and Delamere. Jim Williams is an amazing front […]

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....
