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 […]

Clocks go back this weekend 27th Oct!

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 […]

ToB and WVCC

It’s been a great week thus far (and it’s only Wednesday) for the 2019 ToB, with the Green Jersey (for the overall leader of the race), swapping and changing. Facebook was busy with some vague plans for some who were interested to go and watch somewhere. I had plans just to cycle out to the […]

The prize included 3 nights bed and breakfast at Paul’s villa in Beniarrés, 2 days bike hire, transfers to/from Alicante. We decided to extend the stay by an extra night and secure two additional […]

24/04/2019 – TT cancelled

Sorry guys. Tonight’s TT is now cancelled due to the two sets of traffic lights on the course, one of which stops us doing the 2 lap course as well. Please pass the message on to those who don’t check Facebook or the web site frequently. The work is scheduled to be completed this week, […]

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....
