Off Road Ride – Wayfarer track ...

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 […]

Borderlands Mountainbike Challenge 11...

Borderlands Mountainbike Challenge 11 May

This was the WVCC team for the 20th anniversary of this great fundraising event. The weather was chilly, but much better than forecast and the going firm most of the way round. Despite my decisive attack up the first hill,Tim reeled me in and rode away to be quickest of our team. I had a good gap on […]

Off road weekend 13 &14 April

Off road weekend 13 &14 April

Saturday saw four of us head off from Hawkshead through the Grizedale Forest onto this fantastic bridleway which gave us superb views over Lake Coniston to the Old Man beyond ( that’s a mountain by the way, not one off our club members).  Kev & El (who seem to always know these routes from previous Polaris […]

Off Road ride 6 April

Off Road ride 6 April

A fabulous sunny spring day saw four of us set out on the superb Penmachno trail. This was Tim former WVCC’s Anne on loop 2 (which we did first). Anne and Ann carried on  together while Tim and I rode both loops before lunch back at the Conway Falls cafe. The conditions were pretty good most […]

Off Road Ride 26 Jan

Off Road Ride 26 Jan

Eight of us made it out for a ride from Hartford rather than the planned Macc Forest due to the snow. It turned out to be extremely hard going in the semi-frozen slushy snow, but good fun nonetheless and a warm sunny day. Up through Davenham then along the tracks to Moulton before descending towards […]

Long Mynd Off Road ride 22 Dec

Long Mynd Off Road ride 22 Dec

The day before the Dave Astles memorial ride in much worse weather, 5 of us travelled down to Church Stretton for a superb day riding the tracks and trails of the Long Mynd. Alan K, Tim, Matthew, Steve M and I ignored the weather man and had a brilliant time. Although it was very wet, […]

Whinlatter Duathlon and Great Expecta...

Whinlatter Duathlon and Great Expectations 11 November

Third time I’ve done this event and it’s a classic. 6.5k run, 18k bike and 5.5k run – all hilly and rough terrain. Tim was fantastic with 15 place from 160 finishers in a time of 2hr15min. I was way down in 2hr 43min, but only 10mins slower than last year and it was a lovely […]

Off Road Weekend – Capel Curig ...

Off Road Weekend – Capel Curig and the Bwlch y Groes

Saturday started wet and it stayed that way. Richard led us on one of his fantastic “possibly rideable” routes from Trefriw via the steepest road I’ve riden up in years to Llyn Cowlyd where we followed the bridleway along the shore. Kev U tried his best to prove it rideable, but even he had to […]

Giles B, Steve M and Matt making up the regulars with welcome re-appearances by Phil S, Giles from Kingsley (with his gears now working) and Jim D (with a new rear mech) taking this tricky bridge in his stride. […]

Off Road Rides update

Off Road Rides update

Good turnout of 10 for the last ride on 21 July and some new faces to the fat tyre gang – Titch, Andy A and Phil. We were also joined for his first club ride by Giles from Kingsley who did fantasticly well to go the distance despite jumping gears and not being used to riding with […]

50th Anniversary Off Road ride –...

50th Anniversary Off Road ride – Mary Towneley Loop Sat 23 June

We nearly called it off due to the flooding in Lancashire / Yorkshire with Hebden Bridge, our intended lunch stop on the breakfast tv news due to the main street being submerged. But six intrepid off roaders set off from Waterfoot near Rawtenstall to tackle the 50 mile loop. This was early on, before we had hit too much […]

A Night ride with Andy

A Night ride with Andy

Not a great way to start a ride I thought as I redlined it through Northwich jumping red lights, mounting pavements, scattering mothers with small children, cutting up OAPs in wheelchairs and perhaps riskiest of all overtaking a police car on the inside.  However, as El will tell you I have never been wrong before […]

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....
