Mary Townley Loop & Borderlands Challenge

Les and I joined Pete Riley and 3 more fiends at short notice to ride the Mary Townley Loop on Good Friday. It was a perfect day for this challenging 47 mile ride, mainly on old pack horse tracks around the Lancashire /Yorkshire border. Last time I did it was with Kev & El and […]

Long Mynd weekend 9&10 April

Long Mynd weekend 9&10 April

We couldn’t have wished for a better weekand, just a better turnout! Kev C and I had a brilliant time on Saturday riding over the Long Mynd 5 times in total. Each descent from the broad grassy ridge was better than the last, this was the third one down towards Bridges where we planned for […]

Delamere 2 April

Delamere 2 April

Thanks to Alan for this plot of a ride we did last September – he finished off up the Yeld which we don’t usually tackle! But as you can see we are never far from the cafe, so there’s no excuse not to come and join us for as long as you want, then head […]

Grizedale Duathlon 13 March

Grizedale Duathlon 13 March

Another well run event in the beautiful Lake District on a pleasant spring day. Kev Campbell and I completed the course along with my friends from Newcastle, Tim and Sharon who competed as a relay team. No prizes this time, just the satisfaction of covering 37km with 1500m of ascent and descent on foot and […]

Delamere Sat 5 March

Delamere Sat 5 March

Come and join us for a couple of hours around the forest. Plenty of interesting singletrack and hopefully not too muddy if the dry spell continues. All abilities welcome, we regroup frequently and usually get back to the cafe for lunchtime. Those who want to, do a bit more in the afternoon. Give me a […]

Llandegla Sat 19 Feb

After enjoying a circuit of the black trail, on our final run back into the centre Chas had a very bad fall. He was taken to Wrexham Hospital where he’s being treated for back injuries. The three of us who were also out on the ride, Andy B, Kev C and I wish him all […]

Hit the North 12 Feb 2011

Another fantasticly well organised event by the HtN team near Whitefield north Manchester went off in sunshine with 5 WVCC riders – if you look carefully you can see us all lined up for the start above. Thanks to John Climber for all the pics (I’ll be donating to mountain rescue as requested – probably […]

Delamere 5 Feb

Delamere 5 Feb

For Chas’s first club off road ride we organised rain, wind, mud and extra slippery tree roots in abundance. Matthew, Kev & El, Andy B, Richard C and I did all we could to break him and his enthusiasm. Despite all of this, and his slighly retro bike (with not particularly knobbly tyres), he lasted […]

Cannock Chase 15 Jan

Cannock Chase 15 Jan

By popular request and Matthew & Les’s recommendation, we returned to Chase trails where we really enjoyed Follow the Dog a year ago. Now they’ve extended this with more flowing red to form the Monkey Trail. Billed as the best trail in the country (it is England, so excluding Scotland and Wales I guess) we […]

Wed 29 Dec Peak District

Wed 29 Dec Peak District

The milder conditions gave six of us (Kev & El, Matthew, Andy B, Steve M and me) the opportunity to enjoy some of the excellent tracks and byways from Hayfield and over the Dark Peak on Wednesday. The predicted fog lingered in the valleys, so we soon climbed out of it, resulting in some spectacular […]

Llandegla Sat 18 December CANCELLED DUE TO SNOW

Due to me having flu, Matthew led the ride from Dealmere Station cafe. Thanks to him for this report and the videos – This first vid is of Mike, (Kev and Elenor’s daughter’s boyfriend) cracking what’s known as the ‘road gap’. It’s about 6 foot drop from take off to landing, and I reckon 20 […]
