All abilities starter ride: Short blog for a short ride!!

The weather certainly played a part today as we waited in the drizzle outside of the legion for 10:00 to arrive!! Nevertheless, expecting no-one, we had a young enthusiast pedalling up, suited and booted with his dad, club member Andy, along with him, and Gina, who came to get an idea of precisely what we […]

Sometimes you’ve just got to stop and look around….

A warm/cold* day greeted the riders with shorts/leggings* today, as we headed out for a club run to Bollington. A decent sized group was chatty and happy as we made easy and steady progress out from Hartford through Davenham, Lach Dennis, Goostry, Swetenham, and onto Siddington and up to Broken Cross. We scooted past Macclesfield, […]

The ‘Eleanor made me write it’ club run to Dunham Massey blog

It’s true, she made me do it. Now she is a media luvvy, she can command such power upon the rest of us to complete any journalistic tasks at will. Woe betide anyone who doth protest. Anyhow. Shorts today for me, but not for most who felt the chill after the balmy sun of Saturday. […]

Custard? came the hopeful plea…

It felt like spring had sprung a week early. A cool start saw a healthy group at the club this morning. The long ride started off to Dagfields, and we headed out with the aim of visiting Radway Green. The early morning sunshine and only light wind was most welcome, and we headed out on […]

Llanberis Weekend – 28th February – 1st March 2015

There’ll be a few that are riding Llanberis for the first time this year, so here are a few details to let you know what is going on. Luggage We’re only going for one night,so you don’t need to bring everything and the kitchen sink(!) There will be a van in which you can place […]

Cramming for Llanberis…

Cramming for Llanberis…

We had a large group out on the long run today, no doubt prompted by the imminence of the club weekend to Llanberis in two weeks’ time (eek!) Jim led us out through Davenham and Swettenham to Congleton – an incident free ride other than Heather getting a puncture and Carol being told off by […]

Dodleston. Allegedly.

Dodleston. Allegedly.

Dodleston was where the short run was to head, and by golly we were to be navigated there for the first Al navigated run of this year. We set off at a nice steady pace, and wandered up towards Norley, then on through Ashton Hayes, Waverton, before taking a minor detour across the A51 along […]

Loggerheads

Loggerheads

What a great ride. A large-ish group set off on the long run to Loggerheads and enjoyed an entirely straightforward ride, with, as for last week, not one mechanical or problem. We rode out at a sensible but brisk pace (thanks Jim our navigator!) through Waverton and Chester, up through Higher Kinnerton, up the Treuddyn […]

Club run – Chester 26/10/2014 – Al’s new pump, and the new king of cake

A blustery day today out on the bike, and it very much felt like autumn was here. Mutterings of Llanberis have already started, and outside the club house we chatted on this subject before being called to order by Leader Al, who despatched the long run off on their merry way to The Mills. We […]

Clocks change this weekend!

Clocks change this weekend!

You’ll already have noticed that it’s getter darker in the morning, but please don’t forget to change your clocks this weekend! Also, and equally important – especially for those of you who have joined the club since March – we now meet at 10:00 for the winter months. Other things not to forget: Mudguards – […]

Jim has a bad day…

Jim has a bad day…

A rare shout for the Wednesday Wrinklies! I’m working this weekend so had a day off work, and what a treat it was to join our club elder statesmen on their Wednesday ride. I turned up at Hatchmere at 9.45 – and not a soul was there. Slowly they arrived, in dribs and drabs, until […]

Helping set course today for @WeaverValleyCC for @nwcca race tomorrow. I hope the wind dies down! πŸŒͺ pic.twitter.com/c06JEpWqY1
