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 […]

Dagfields in Autumn sunshine

Dagfields in Autumn sunshine

An excellent long run today, to Dagfields in beautiful Autumn sunshine. It was one of those “what should I wear?” sort of mornings as we set off in a thick fog with temperatures of c 5 degrees, but sunshine was promised. It didn’t take long for us to ride out of the mists into the […]

Difficult one to categorize this one, so it’s filed under Road Run, ‘cos technically, we did ride on the road for some of it, but it’s also filed under Special Event, because it was a brilliant day out. Acton Lane (or ‘The Cliff’ as it seems to have become known) wasn’t massively busy when I […]

Amelia’s Journey – Club Run 31/08/2014

Today saw members of Winnington Park RC and Weaver Valley Cycling Club take part in a sponsored cycle ride in aid of Amelia Hill, the little girl with a heart defect. The run was called Amelia’s Journey and over 45 riders took part in the 50m round trip to The Eureka Cafe on the Wirral and […]

Short(?) Cub Run – 24/08/2014

Short(?) Cub Run – 24/08/2014

Well for a short club run, it ended up quite long. Quite right too, given that we’d got the gap in the recent wind and rain. So, a fantastic sunny start greeted us as we met as per usual. What we hadn’t counted on was the sight that was to greet us as Al turned […]

Alan’s defection, and Carol cleans up for the camera – short club run – 27/07/2014*

A sunny day with a breeze met us at the legion today. A refreshing change for most from the heat of this week. The long run were off to the unexplored unknowns of North Wales (well, near Wrexham anyway). We were on a different journey, and one which would see some reversals of routes. Alan […]

To Tittesworth and back

To Tittesworth and back

The prospect of a “lumpy” ride meant a fairly small group of us setting off from the Legion, on a beautiful route out to Tittesworth Reservoir via Congleton.  Unfortunately for me the group consisted entirely of good climbers, so I was last up every hill, but I tried to focus on staying positive and everyone was […]

Ferry Across the Mersey

Ferry Across the Mersey

It couldn’t have been a nicer day to take a day off work. a healthy crowd were at the swing bridge before 9. A minute after, and we were on our way. 27 of us pedalled through Sutton Weaver and Beechwood, and we were soon pedalling over the Mersey on the Runcorn/Widnes bridge. From here […]

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....
