Lee Quarry Race 4th May

Lee Quarry Race 4th May

Thanks to Matthew Hornby for the following report and well done for completing the event. Picture above was taken the previous Saturday on one of the rocky sections. Monday 4th May started bright and early for Derek and myself – well actually it was very early and really quite damp, a little dispiriting considering the […]

Lee Quarry 2nd May

Lee Quarry 2nd May

Andy gets some air at Lee Quarry – between Rawtnestall and Bacup in Lancashire. They’ve made a great job creating a 5km “red” loop (Andy, Gareth and I did 5 circuits) with an additional 2km “black”(bonkers) bit for those who like checking out the ground with their faces. The red is great, quite a heavy […]

Delamere Sat 18 April

Delamere Sat 18 April

Meet at the Station cafe as usual at 10am. All abilities welcome. We may split into two groups, technical and less so. Either way, you won’t get left to fend for yourself in the dark wood. If you don’t think the forest is challenging enough, then we’ll show you different!There is much more to go […]

Coed y Brenin 4 April

Coed y Brenin 4 April

A smaller than usual group of three headed for North Wales courtesy of Andy’s van. We hit the Beast trail which is 37km of mainly singletrack with some rocky technical sections but more flowing than it used to be. It takes in 3500ft of climbing (that’s equivalent to riding up Snowdon), but that didn’t seem […]

Delamere 21 March

Delamere 21 March

Here’s Ross showing us how to ride one of the narrow “bridges” he found on some singletrack, which was completely new to the rest of us, in Delamere Forest. Seven of us enjoyed the sunshine (until it disappeared) with the driest conditions so far this year. Lunch at the cafe, followed by a climb of […]

7 March Tegg’s Nose for 3 Shire...

7 March Tegg’s Nose for 3 Shires Bridge

Seven of us set out from Tegg’s Nose country park a few miles E of Macclesfield for a challenging ride along tracks and back roads to Three Shire Heads where Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire meet. The bridge here crosses our very own River Dane just a mile or two from its source. Here we are […]

Delamere and the Packhorse Bridges

Delamere and the Packhorse Bridges

Ross led four more of us on a mystery tour taking in a remarkable number of new singletrack sections. From Delamere to the Whitegate Way, through to Oulton Park, Cotebrook, Primrose Hill then back over Old Pale for lunch back at our starting point. Mike had a disagreement with a rock, Eleanor had 2 punctures […]

Hit the North mountain bike race

Hit the North mountain bike race

Hey…see the video – courtesy of Alan’s Bikes http://www.hitthenorth.net/ I think the cameraman had a soft spot for El and Matthew! Looks a great course. Thanks to Matthew Hornby for the following report: The 7th of Feb was the date four intrepid members of the WVCC, (off road section) turned up at Phillips Park in […]

Polaris Challenge 13-14 June

Polaris Challenge 13-14 June

Take a look at this event http://www.polarischallenge.com/ and see if you fancy joining me to make up a team of 2. It’s basically endurance mountain biking orienteering?! This event is in the Peak District and would mean camping out Friday and Saturday nights. If we get lots of interest we could enter a number of […]

Delamere 17 Jan

Delamere 17 Jan

A bright but chilly morning saw 8 of us set off from the station cafe after tea and coffee. Up a winding track over Pale Heights to Primrosehill Wood where we hit the trails proper. The overnight rain had made it very slippy, especially over the tree roots which abound ( Steve leads Andy and […]

11 Jan Club run to Llandegla

11 Jan Club run to Llandegla

Thought I’d start a thread by creating a post, but it turns out it is on the bogblog not the Sunday runs blog – not as computer literate as I thought. Anyway, thanks to Alan and Ewart for getting us to the mountainbike centre at Llandegla through Holt, Rossett and Coedpoeth. Then back via a […]

Summertrees 3 Jan

Summertrees 3 Jan

A great turnout of 13 riders and a couple of new faces despite the freezing weather. This is the rambling route which Matthew recorded with his GPS http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Summertrees-and-Delamere. We headed off to Moulton then over the Weaver to the Whitegate way and some lanes and tracks to Little Budworth. More tracks through the woods near […]

Club runs are back in the calendar for our members and new riders who are looking to join.
