The race to Tatton – the return of the beginners ride…

The forecast looked good, with only a slight chance of showers, so the planned beginners ride was on. At 9:45, Al and I rode to the empty car park at the legion and patiently waited, pondering what might or might not be. We didn’t wait long before the first arrived and introduced themselves. Clearly we […]

Dodleston, the return

Dodleston, the return

There was rain early in the day to wet the roads, so some of us came along ready with mudguards and overshoes just in case. Some did not. Skies had finished emptying the rain though, and we set off at a steady pace off towards Delamere. After the customary break at Hatchmere, we set off […]

Non competitive cycling, an alien concept for some…

Well what a fantastic turnout for the Northwich Pedal Power festival, with a few hundred riders setting off on various length rides this morning. I ended up with a large group on the 70 mile ride, which followed a beautiful circuitous route which criss-crossed betweeen Middlewich, Winsford and Delamere. Jim Williams is an amazing front […]

LeJoG Day four… and a club run or two

The day started with rain and wind. I didn’t expect to see too many out as I approached the club, but there was a healthy gathering of club members, all eager to trip out and try something a bit different. Today was a bit different. We were to meet Graham, Carl and the intrepid band […]

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 date is Sunday 24th May at 10:00 am , and the meeting location will be in the car park of the (now closed) Hartford British Legion in Bradburns Lane, Hartford (Opposite the Grange School). These rides are designed to get […]

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 […]

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....
