TLI5

TLI5

A warm evening and fast racing tonight.  John Keen finished safely in the bunch in his race.  Alan won his race easily – or it looked easy to me.  He rode on his own for the last 2.5 laps – particularly harsh, as this was one lap too many, due to an oversight from some bloke called […]

Here we all are, lined up before the race – nerves jangling, adrenalin pumping.  A few WVCC riders in evidence – Kev, Nick B, Carol, John Keen, Julian, Andy Newby, Richard Munro, Mark Thompson and me – with Alan and Tim marshalling this week.  A good race was had by all. Our race (Carol, Mark and I […]

TLI 2

TLI 2

Only four laps tonight, because of the gloom – even at 6 p.m. cars had their lights on.  I for one was pleased about this decision!  Anyway the rain held off, the roads were reasonably dry, temperatures remained marginally above freezing, and all the races went off without incident.  Only a few WVCC riders out […]

TLI 1

Well as you can see from the photo (for which thanks – or in my case no thanks! – to John Keen) – Carol was out for a gentle cruise, whilst I was doing some serious suffering – funny that, given that we were both riding in the same race!  It was a clear dry evening […]

Cheshire Classic Women’s Road Race 2012

At Weaver Valley CC we promote a number of races through out the season, the first of which is the Cheshire Classic Women’s Road Race which takes place on Sunday 22nd April, starting at 10am. The race is part of British Cycling’s National Series calendar and is the longest race on it too. The race […]

TLI 3

TLI 3

Great racing in the over 50s and 60s group – Nick got into a break with 6 or 7 riders (all from the over 50s group) and worked really hard, coming in a well deserved 3rd – Alan waited and watched his own age group, who formed a second break – Alan won the sprint, […]

TLI races at Lower Withington – to ride or to race?

Lots of WVCC members of both the “riding” (trying not to get dropped) and the “racing” (trying to win) species out today. I was riding (certainly not racing) in the over 50s and 60s group and it was HORRIBLE, it seemed much faster than last year – whether it was, or whether I’m just less […]

Hip wiggling and pelvis rotating = freewheel success

We rode out of Hartford in a huge group: I didn’t count but there were well over 30 riders. We looked pretty impressive, with the majority of riders in club kit, although some drivers were probably rather less impressed with us than we were with ourselves! Some of us get tetchy (understatement) with car drivers, […]

Autumn Road Race – cyclists defy floods!

Well races don’t come much wetter. Unlike those soft golfers in South Wales, our cyclists weren’t prepared to throw in the towel (although a towel might have come in quite handy) – and 40 brave souls battled through flooded roads and torrential downpours today, to compete in the BC regional “B” series Weaver Valley Autumn […]

Oulton Park 2

Oulton Park 2

Lots of WVCC folk out this week, on a warm sunny evening.I have only a vague idea of what happened generally because I was too busy chatting (what’s new I hear you say). That’s apart from my own race when I was far too puffed to chat. Alan went off the front after 3 laps […]

John Boote Memorial Senior Road Race ...

John Boote Memorial Senior Road Race 13/6/2010

An excellent race today – exciting to watch, the weather held up well and everyone got back safely. Graham had a full entry of 60 plus ten reserves, and lots of people who turned up on the day in the hope of an entry on the line, so there was a full field, of mostly […]

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....
