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, […]

Hill Climb – Volunteers Required

Its that time of year again folks where we need your support in marshalling our Cat and Fiddle Hill Climb. We really need members to help out where they can. These events don’t happen without your commitment to support them. The Hill Climb is on Sun 15th Sept Important Note: Revised start time of 14:00 […]

A Long Time In The Saddle

Number 16 30 seconds 10 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, GO, good luck. Does this sound familiar? Of course it does you know how a time trial works by now. But this wasn’t the start of it all for me. It was way back at Oulton Park talking to Adrian Japp and Dave Fearon about […]

Titch’s debut 12hr TT

When you journey thru the distances of TT’ing, it is usual to do it in a progressive manner, spending a few years riding 50’s, and 100’s before venturing into the realms of a 12hour TT.. However, Titch turned the convention book on its head by only riding 10’s, a couple of 25’s and just one […]

Club 10 31/07/2019 Cancelled

Due to the flooding on the course, tonight’s 10 is unfortunately cancelled. There were official road closure signs between the garage where we start and the Three Greyhounds pub this afternoon, so, to ensure that we consider rider safety first, we have made this decision.

Club 10 – Round 9 – 24th ...

Club 10 – Round 9 – 24th July 2019

Cracking evening yesterday with lots of sunshine resulting in plenty of PB’s.  A special mention to our Carol (Robson not Kirkwood):), who demolished her PB from 28:22 to 27:03!!!  I think the club needs to order an EPO test kit and an X-Ray machine for next season as some of these improvements are amazing.  Only […]

Club 10’s- 17th July 2019

Club 10’s- 17th July 2019

A night for the riders with waterproof skin tonight!  16 brave souls turned up and actually despite the rain it was pretty quick with several PB’s.  Winner with a 22:00 was Dave Walker but there was a gaggle of 23’s after that with a very in form Titch taking second place with a PB 23:12.  […]

Club 100 mile champs – 14th July 2019 – SCCA 100

Just some words from me following Emily’s excellent blog yesterday.  It has been a quite a few years since we had 4 entrants in the 100 champs and having 3 novices including one lady entrant is even more unusual.  All 4 riders stepped up to the distance and took it on bravely.  100 miles at […]

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....
