Llanberis. Brutal. Need I say more..?

Well I suppose I must, so here is a bit of a photo blog. There was a sense of foreboding on social media in the days before, given the weather forecast as the weekend approached. I popped up to Hatchmere for a quick roll call of the early leavers there, and was greeted by a bunch […]

Llanberis 2016 – update

As many will know, we had a bit of last minute drama after we found out that the cafe at Ruthin Craft Centre had closed, which is where we were due to stop for the feeding frenzy before heading onwards to Denbigh! Not to worry though, as Jim, Alan and Syd sought out the Seven […]

Wild Wales Challenge 2016

Wild Wales Challenge 2016

A number of you may (or may not) have fond memories from last year’s event, personally, it was probably the toughest ride I have ever done, over 8000 ft of elevation gain in around 85 miles 2015 route can be found here. I recall a number of conversations immediately following the ride along the lines […]

Ladies and gents, we have now finalised the date for the 2016 Club Dinner. Now in the calendar for Saturday 13th February 2016. This year we’re at home at Winnington Park RFC, and it’ll be a great evening with a chance to not recognise all of our club members when they dress (almost) like humans. We […]

M&DTTA Christmas 10 – 2015

M&DTTA Christmas 10 – 2015

Not a WVCC event, but an event organised by our own Mr Fearon, and always a bit of festive fun. The highlight of the event is the fancy dress, and those who enter into this spirit really go to town on their outfits. It was a cold, wet day as I stood shivering at Allostock, […]

Llanberis 2016

Victoria Hotel, Llanberis

All, the response to the Llanberis weekend has been overwhelming, so much so that I have had to close the list down, I have secured extra rooms but don’t feel that we are able to cope with more that the 70 riders who are going to be on the road. I will be now running […]
