Whitchurch, The Sheep Shed 18/2/24

Reading Time: 2 minutes Another nice, mild and not particularly windy day had John K, Geoff M, Rich M, Emily M, Sam T and Carl J take a meandering ride out to a new club destination, The Sheep Shed near Whitchurch. It was generally a pretty flat ride but the hills, as much as they were, came before we […]

Pontcysyllte Chapel Tea Room 4/2/2024

Reading Time: 2 minutes Another mild day yesterday and there were 5 eager faces at the start, Sam, Emily, Jeff F, Alex and Me (I was definitely a little jaded after yesterday’s exertions on and off the bike). We picked up Ross at Whitegate and the 6 of us headed off in to the stiffening breeze taking ad-hoc turns […]

Malpas 21/01/2024

Reading Time: 2 minutes Jeff, Carl, Sam, Emily, Stuart, Dave, Paul, Graham, Neil and me turned up for duty at 9.30 this morning, a mild but damp day. The route was the old Saturday training ride but heading to Malpas. Emily suggested a brand new cafe that she was quite excited about going to, having never tried it, The […]

Saturday training ride 20/01/2024

Reading Time: < 1 minute I drove out to the club this morning and arrived late which meant a rapid ride out to Hatchmere. I made pretty good time and arrived to see several rear lights disappearing in to the forest. I caught up with Carl, Geoff and Alex and the 4 of us were a good unit into the […]

Long club ride to Higher Kinnerton

Reading Time: < 1 minute Today’s long ride to Higher Kinnerton saw 7 of us set off in chilly, damp conditions. I initially had concerns about black ice but it warmed up and started raining a bit. We had a pretty uneventful and pleasant 30 miles to Walters cafe. My first time there & my feedback is; on a nice […]

Club Runs

Reading Time: 4 minutes Following the announcement from the Government regarding the relaxation of some of the rules and measures that we’ve been subject to, I want to outline the approach to the next significant phase of easing. So, to start, we aim to formally start group rides as normal from Wednesday 19th May. We must still be responsible […]

The Long Way Home

Reading Time: 12 minutes The highlight of Summer 2020 It’s taken a few months before I got around to writing this one up – I rode in August 2020, in that narrow window of opportunity to actually ride in and out of Wales between the waves of the pandemic! For a long time I’ve wanted to try riding to […]

Steady schlep to sleepy Sleap

Reading Time: 4 minutes In an effort to pretend that life is still normal, a small, disparate group of us have taken to convening on a Sunday morning for a long non clubrun club run. Last weekend was officially classed as, ‘hilly’ and so it seemed only fair that this weekend should be in the, ‘flat’ category. During the […]
