Pickmere TLI

Pickmere TLI

Alan warned me it would be fast and it was! Apparently there were a lot of good riders out. An interesting format tonight, where the over 55s were set off 2 minutes ahead of the under 55s and it was a handicap race. I managed to stay with my lot – just – then the […]

TLI Macclesfield

TLI Macclesfield

I really enjoyed this one, a longer circuit than the Lower Withington race and a few more hills but nothing too scary. Alan won his race, Nick and Kevan ended up in the break on their race and came in 8th and 9th so did really well, and other WVCC racers strutting their stuff were […]

TLI 4 – a lesson in futility unless your surname is Kemp

A brief report tonight I promise. Gareth and Andy Newby had a go off the front in the young ‘uns race but didn’t get anywhere. Nick had a go off the front in the over 40s race but also didn’t get anywhere. Mark Thompson had a go off the front in the over 60s race […]

Fred Whitton – a report from Gareth

For those of you who haven’t heard of the Fred Whitton ride, its basically 112 miles over most of the Lake District passes, ascending some 4000 metres at gradients of up to 30%. Last Sunday Derek and myself gave it a go. Starting at the sports centre in Coniston we set off at just after […]

TLI 3

TLI 3

Richard M, Andy Newby and Nick competed in the younger race – Nick got into a fast breakaway and managed to stay with them till the end. Kev, Mark T and I rode in the older race. Kev was determined to get into the “break that mattered” and tried to latch onto anything that looked […]

TLI 2

TLI 2

Another good night’s racing. Andy Newby, Chas and Gareth rode in the youngsters’ race – sorry I don’t know how they did, maybe one of them will post a comment – I know Andy said he worked hard in various efforts to get off the front but was frustrated that there was no organisation and […]

It’s racing time

It’s racing time

Well I’m feeling very virtuous having raced twice in three days! On Sunday I entered the National Women’s Series Road Race in Weaverham – it was a fantastic race, and was described by Paralympic gold medallist Sarah Storey, who came second, as the best women’s race she’s ever ridden in the UK. For more details […]

Some racing results from Dave Astles…

Thanks to Dave for the following report on various events – well done Carl, Dave and Mark, as well as all our TT riders! Former W.V. rider Carl Ruebotham,won the Welsh national 100ml time trial championships on Sun, in a stunning time of 3hrs-44mins-23secs,not sure if this is a personal best. The course was hilly […]

When I’m 64…When I get older, losing my hair, will I still be riding my bike as fast as these fellas?

A perfect hot day and 13 of us set off to the Lock Cafe at Whitchurch. Nine of us got there. We worked out that excluding me and Jed (we’re the relative youngsters) the average age was 64. Amazing. The normal quality of banter was enhanced by Richard Heywood’s return to the fold. Richard, removing […]

Oulton Park 3

Oulton Park 3

This will be hard as I was a bit too busy chatting to take in much of what went on, (apologies) but here goes…lots of WVCC riders in the action… It was a warm night with a thunderstorm threatening – we had a few drops of rain as we started but it never developed into […]

Oulton Park 2

Oulton Park 2

Another phenomenal turn out. This week we were split into three races, with the “oldies” going first. Dave Astles, Kevan and Graham all made their presence known at the front of the pack on various occasions but missed the decisive break of four riders which got away with about 4 laps to go and stayed […]

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....
