Cliff Holden

I’ve just received the sad news that club member, Cliff Holden, has passed away. Cliff was a regular on the Wednesday Wrinklies rides up until recently, and had recently bought an electric bike so that he could keep on riding. He was making good progress following a series of operations and had even had a […]

Hello Club!

Whilst we’re all doing our own things, solo riding, socially distancing as a small group, or not riding at all, it’s always good to look forward in these changing times. WVCC is still here, still waiting patiently, and ready to unleash activities when safe to do so. At this stage, we remain cautious, but shortly, […]

WVCC COVID-19 Update

Following previous posts, and recent statements from national cycling organisations, including British Cycling, Cycling Time Trials, Cycling UK and Audax UK, it is important that the committee make a statement about a club approach during the coming months. Ahead of a committee meeting that we’ll be holding in on 7th July, we will not be […]

Social Distancing – ONLY ride s...

This is a quick message to urge all cyclists, not just club members, to only ride solo whilst you are out on your bikes for the forseeable future. Only go out once a day, and avoid all contact with others (2 metre rule). We’ve seen an appalling lack of compliance to advice given thus far […]

*IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ* For members of WVCC: COVID-19 – our response. As a committee, we recognise that we must support the government in their efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19.

Scones, comfy slippers and Llanberis ...

A far better outlook than last greeted those at the club. The sun even poked it’s nose out briefly. Still, Jim took no chances, equipping the broom wagon with snorkel, goggles and flippers. Just in case like…. The black swans in the pond in Hoofield Lane were impressed. Llanberis can be a smiling assassin, and […]

M&DTTA Awards Lunch

After a solid year of time trials for the club with more people racing than ever, it was fitting that Caroline and Dave Fearon didn’t go to the M&DTTA (Manchester and District Time Trialling Association) awards lunch alone this year. Instead seven of us comprising of The Fearons, Carol & Dan, Titch, Sam and I […]

Hi All, if you want to give yourself a bit of extra motivation over the winter, why not put your name down for next years Llanberis weekend. 14th/15th March 2020, 100 miles Saturday, 85 miles Sunday.   I expect the final costs to be between £80 and £90.. for this you’ll get.. Bag Transport to […]

https://clipartxtras.com/download/a17f5a16218c2d79b95f3a48e3e5b175b756e207.html

It’s that time of year again – so don’t forget this Sunday morning now will you? At 02:00 on the 27th October (early Sunday morning when you are fast asleep), the clocks will go back an hour! This is probably fine if you use a smart phone or computer as they’ll probably set themselves. Best […]

How to cycle underneath a river

If I hadn’t seen a Sustrans post about it, I’d never have known about it, but visiting the Newcastle area now and again, I had to check it out. It’s a tunnel you see, under the River Tyne, but not your usual, cars, buses and other motorised transport affair, this was built for pedestrians and […]

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....
