Warrington Road Club 4 Up TT

I’m just on a wind down after a fantastic night on the bike, so thought I’d write a blog about how tonight’s team time trial went… I remember in 2016 heading out with Elaine to watch a team of Jim Duffy, Jim Williams, Chris Gilbertson and Jo Blakeley ride the same 4 up in a […]

WVCC Oulton Park 2019 Round 3 –...

Again absolutely massive thanks to this crowd of judges plus the photographers and signers on. Who could have predicted that the weather would have been as bad as last week. Well it wasn’t, it was worse! Also thanks to motorbike Marshall’s and ambulance crew. Despite the atrocious weather we ran two successful races. Six hardy […]

Club 10’s – 2 up TTT – 5th June 2019

The popular 2-up was well supported last night and the conditions were also good. Probably for the first time ever the winning team was a mixed team with Emily and Sam putting out a scorching 22:47.  2nd team were Paul Longley and Dave Jones who were also fastest composite team with a time of 23:20.  […]

WVCC Oulton Park 2019 Round 2 –...

Well, the result of round 2 last night was a solid drenching of all the dedicated riders that turned out! Nevertheless, there was some excellent racing, especially in race 2, with a solo breakaway, that was never reeled in. Results and a few images below:

Club 10 – Round 4 – 29th May 2019

Once again I won’t comment about fair weather cyclists (actually I am:)), but from a turn out of 33 riders in the sun last Wednesday we had a very poor attendance of 7 riders this week.  In reality it was warm and only lightly drizzling so the one’s who did turn up had a good […]

Club 10 – Round 2 – 15th May 2019

A great turn out last night with 30 signing on and then Mike Lodge promptly signing off after snapping a spoke (better luck next time Mike).  No digs from me about fair weather cyclists but significantly more riders than last week on a dry sunny evening. I’ll cut to the chase with the results.  Dave […]

WVCC Club 10’s – Practice 10 – 1st May 2019

A great turn out for the first club 10 of the Year on Wednesday with 22 riders.  Conditions were good with little wind and dry conditions following a short shower 1 hour before the start. A new season and some new names in the 10’s and some of these with obvious form.  Winner on the […]

WVCC Open Hill Climb 2018

                  It was hill climb time on Sunday and time to see if all our preparations had worked. Being the first time I had organised an event there was more than a little bit of trepidation! I needn’t have worried at all, with all the help and […]

Wet, Wet, Wet – WVCC Open 25 20...

Remember them? Course you do. Most of the riders on Saturday also remember what wet, wet, wet really is, because that is what it was! Those who popped out, got wet. Although the day started out only slightly damp, more washing of the roads was to come. The day was split into 2 events, first […]

On the right track

Well, it felt really odd arriving at the velodrome in the daylight, but couldn’t let the first  winter(?) season track session go by, so landed at about 19:10. No sooner had I got into the middle of the track I saw a figre in black at the other side of the track on the rollers. […]

R25/3H 25TT

After encouragement from Dave Fearon, I entered the R25/3H 25TT a few months ago, then looked at where the course actually was and realised it was in the southest of Wales! So I planned a couple of nights away with lovely friends who live in Gloucester which meant I could see them and also halve the […]
