Llandegla in the snow.

Llandegla in the snow.

So, my inaugural jaunt as the MTB secretary. At this juncture I’ll just say a massive thanks to Nick for doing this for all the past years, I love mountain biking, and the rides he’s organised have been a huge part of that. My plan for an early than usual start option were a bit […]

Delamere off road ride Sat 6 Dec

Delamere off road ride Sat 6 Dec

It turned out lovely in the sunshine and great to see so may out on a frosty morning – probably safer on the tracks and trails than the icy roads. 15 is the most we have had out for ages so we split into 2 groups with Kev and El accompanying Nicola and newcomers Julia, […]

Off Road Ride from Hayfield over the Dark Peak 22 Nov

Just Kev, Tim and I, but a superb ride across to Hope. We set off up a gruelling climb to Rushup Edge via the Roych, then Mam Tor followed by a very steep descent from Hollins Cross to the Edale Valley. Although very wet, many of the tracks are rocky so shed the water, but […]

Off Road Ride Delamere Sat 4 Oct

Some tired legs after our exertions on the velodrome boards the night before, but 8 made it for a damp but very pleasant ride around the forest. By the time we got to the top of Old Pale the sun was shining. Steve M, Rob and Steve C, Geoff and Iain (from Scotland like Danny McCaskill […]

Off-Road weekend Coed y Brenin and beyond

A report by Eleanor which has been copied over from the forum (so that everyone can read it and see the photos here) Having read Kev’s post (I despair of the man) I feel I should counter with a straight version – but there again, maybe I should leave that to readers’ imaginations! At the […]

Man up and get out in the forest… He said…

Matthew braved the rain on Saturday, and hit the forest: Rain battering the windows is never a pleasant wake up call on an offroad ride day, but as I’d volunteered to lead while at Llandegla the other week, it was time for a dose of ‘man-up’, (and hope that no-one else was daft enough to […]

Lakes Off Road with a difference

Lakes Off Road with a difference

So many people were on holiday that only Kev Underhill and I were free for an off road weekend 26 & 27 July. So we (or at least I) had an interesting idea. Camp at Borrowdale Friday night, then ride over to Wasdale Saturday morning in time for the Lingmell Dash, which is a fell running […]

Cheshire Ring Canal Ride

Cheshire Ring Canal Ride

    Well this turned out to be one of my best days on a bike.  We (our valiant leader Andy B, Paul H, Matt, Derek, Tim and I) set off at the unearthly hour of 7 a.m from the Anderton Boat Lift – along the 100 mile route that is the Cheshire Ring.  If […]

Off Road ride Delamere

Off Road ride Delamere

Lovely day for a blast round the forest. Some new faces in the shape of Stu and Andy and good to see Geoff back – so 9 in totalSteve shows Andy and El how to cross the bridge (good to see he’s using his retirement wisely) Paul making easy work of the rickety bridge in […]

Antur Stiniog Sat 26 Apr

Uplift means you only have to ride downhill, so Andy, Mathew and I enjoyed 11 downhill runs of the Jympar and Drift trails, getting a lift in a minibus back up to the top every time. See Matthew at and Andy too It’s a fantastic facility with some very rocky, technical and tricky trails. We only […]

Off Road Ride Delamere 2 Nov

Off Road Ride Delamere 2 Nov

Due to the “Hell Run” taking place we headed over to Primrose Wood where the mud wasn’t too thick. 5 of us out – Steve M fresh from his Scottish climbing trip, Paul H who had already ridden 16 miles off-road from Middlewich, Chris G who had a tangle with a fallen branch which resulted […]

Off Road Ride – Wayfarer track Sat 20 July

Best turn out for a while with 7 of us heading over the Wayfarer track to Llandrillo from Llanarmon at the head of the beautiful Ceiriog valley. Steve M, Kev U, Rob J & Stevie C, Matthew & Derek and a recovering me rode up to the high point of the Wayfarer where a memorial […]

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....
