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 […]

Spectacular Cycling from the Club Din...

Mark and I were fortunate enough to win the prize donated by Paul Simpson for the club dinner, spectacularcycling – http://www.spectacularvilla.eu/. 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 […]

Paul Sherwen Memorial

Not normally the type of video shared on the club site, but I thought it appropriate to embed the YouTube video of the fitting tribute to WVCC Club Member Paul Sherwen, held at Manchester Cathedral on 6th February 2019.

Clocks change this weekend!!!

Don’t forget now will you? At 02:00 on the 30th 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 to check though! You really don’t want to turn up an […]

Wild Wales Challenge – Trophy Award

August Bank holiday seems such a long time ago now, but for those who rode the Wild Wales challange, the best kept secret in cycling, it will be remembered as a glorious, if challenging day. Yesterday we were awarded the coveted Harold Kewish Trophy for the club team with most finishers, WVCC had twenty five […]

First of all a big congratulations to Jimmy Williams for completing the Mersey RC & National 24 Hour championship this weekend.  The result and everything else are just part of the (lengthy sorry), story and we’ll get on to that, but the achievement for every rider is just getting to the finish.  Jim will create […]

Northwich Police and WVCC team up aga...

According the the ImmobiTag web site – see www.immobitag.com – there is a bike stolen every 71 seconds in the UK. That’s a lot of bikes, and the pride and joy of many a cyclist. Insurance often doesn’t cover everything, and most of us love our bikes and would much prefer to have them returned […]
