This year we’re at the Winnington Park Recreation Club, and it’ll be a great evening with the usual chance to socialise whilst we’re washed […]

WVCC Cyclo-cross 2020

Well, it was certainly a cool day, with a harsh chilling wind to start, and dry-ish conditions, albeit heavy going for the riders. The biggest entertainment, and certainly the most technical part of the course, which favoured the faster and fitter, was a small and unassuming little chicane, up a gentle slope. By the time […]

Manchester Regional Track League 22nd...

Since last Friday I have really piled in the training (not), a club run, a gym session, some efforts on the turbo and some core work. Sensibly (unusual for me) I am getting back in to it slowly so as not to do myself in. In any case some work has been done and so […]

Claims for club standards & BAR qualifying rides

It’s that time of the Year again where you need to let me have your claims for medals / BAR trophies for the 2019 TT season.  If you look on the WVCC website under “Club Info” – “Competition” you will find the rules explaining the BAR qualifying criteria and also a list of club standards […]

Saturday the 21st of September was the last Cheshire TT for a few of our club, namely Sam Taylor, Ali Stanway, Andy Milligan, Carol & Dan Robson, Dave Curran and myself. For me personally it was a welcome end to the season after racing since March and feeling pretty tired of late, so a final […]

Leo 30 mile TT – New Mens Competition Record

After missing out on a ride at the National 25 due to cancellation in July I was keen to round out the season on a high.  A quick look at the CTT events list unearthed the Leo 30 in Cambridge on the doorstep of some good friends who we’d not seen in a couple of years.  After […]

Weaver Valley CC – Hill Climb 2...

  It was hill climb time again this Sunday and this time we had already been through the loop, so things were a bit less stressful, only a bit mind! Yet again people came up trumps and we had all our helpers and Marshals lined up and ready to go. Quite a few new faces […]

BDCA 100- the beating of the 4 hour barrier

By Sam Taylor BDCA 100 07/09/19 After doing my first 100 mile tt in July, I was keen to have another go at hopefully dipping under 4 hours and doing a 25mph ride, so Dave Fearon encouraged me to enter the BDCA event on the A100/4 course (on the A50 near Uttoxiter) which is known […]

Port Talbot 25 and a new PB

Port Talbot 25 and a new PB

By Alistair Stanway. Inspired by a man half my age after his superb ride in the 100 yesterday I travelled to South Wales today to have a crack at the fast R25/3H course for the Port Talbot CC 25. Keen to see what we could knock out and hunting a 25 PB. According to the […]

It’s Hot for Cross!

It’s Hot for Cross!

It’s only the 8th of September, and we’re already complete for round 1 and 2 of the North West Cyclocross Association League, with an excellent turn out by Weaver Valley!  Having had my CX debut last year in freezing conditions in a snow blizzard, 2019 round 1 and 2 have been positively barmy in comparison […]

That 25mile TT club record…

The women’s 25-mile club record has been an elusive one for me, firstly because it’s not something I thought I’d be worrying about when I started time trialling, and secondly because the club weren’t 100% sure what it was! With Dave Fearon saying “I’m sure Jackie White dipped under the hour in the 80s!” However, […]
