Loggerheads 5th January 2020. I did i...

So, my comeback that refuses to comeback continues…. On Friday I had a prawn sandwich for lunch from a little cafe in north Manchester and a short while later started to feel rough. I got really sweaty, went home, went to bed and later on Friday evening was sick. I then didn’t eat till Saturday […]

Clocks go back this weekend 27th Oct!

https://clipartxtras.com/download/a17f5a16218c2d79b95f3a48e3e5b175b756e207.html

It’s that time of year again – so don’t forget this Sunday morning now will you? At 02:00 on the 27th October (early Sunday morning when you are fast asleep), the clocks will go back an hour! This is probably fine if you use a smart phone or computer as they’ll probably set themselves. Best […]

Llanberis 2019. The maelstrom. The su...

Where does one start to describe the Llanberis weekend this year? Madness? Possibly. A little bit wet? Maybe. Maelstrom? – a situation or state of confused movement or violent turmoil. That’ll do. Many dropped out, fearing what was to come. Weather reports suggested it would be wet and windy. Oh yes. It was. A few turned […]

Llanberis 2019 routes

2 weeks to go! If you want a bit more detail about the route, then here are the GPX files for you to download to your bike GPS units. They are standard GPX files (on a PC, right click and select Save Link As or Save Target As,  to download them to wherever you want […]

Is Steve still with us? A short ride ...

Was it late March or April? It certainly felt like spring this morning as I headed into the wind towards club. There was even the sound of a Skylark over the fields near Little Leigh. Not a sound you would usually hear until March. It was bright, warmer than usual, with a brisk, but not […]

Dagfields, Mills, Hailstones and suns...

This was the scene at the club this morning, with ‘not as many as expected’ given that it’s just over a month to Llanberis. Either way, there were enough eager souls turning up to do a couple of runs, and the majority took off towards Ruthin, although most muttered about Loggerheads so that was to […]

The not club run(!)

I’m not writing about the club run today, as I wasn’t actually on it(!) Setting out this morning after the weather forecasts for today, I was part delighted and partly in some trepidation of the day. The delight came at heading to Hartford. It was like riding an e-bike on full chat, with a monster […]

Cycling is tiring. Short run, 06/01/2...

It’s been a while since I’ve been on a full Sunday run, so I set out with some trepidation. I needed to get some miles in (but had at least done some warming up over the past weeks using Zwift to make sure that I didn’t make too much of an idiot of myself!). A […]

Tittesworth with some friends

Unfortunately I do not have the time this week for a proper report on the long run… Very briefly, the run heading to Tittesworth, I ignored the advice to avoid Congleton and then Gun Hill as both were supposed to have blockages. Instead I thought we should take the ‘suck it and see’ approach. Paddy […]

The great bacon adventure of 2018

Edmund Hillary, Ferdinand Magellan, Scott, Shackleton, all great adventurers, all lovers of a bacon sandwich. Add Keen to that list. For today’s inspirational, Boy’s Own style adventure was lead by none other than the great fool himself. It must be said that it was entirely by default as no one else wanted to be lumbered […]

A wet and windy Augember day

If this had been a November weekend it would have been viewed as mild but a bit wet. With it being an August day however I am sure the weather was perceived as a lot worse than it actually was. Does that make sense? In fact it was rainy. And windy. Rainy and windy, a […]

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....
