Dagfields (Short Ride) – 19th February 2012

Well the week long wait and the daily grind at work is all worth while when you have a club run like today. Despite a chilly, and in some cases according to the Winsford division, a slippery start to the morning, the sun was out in full force and by the return ride home the […]

I think I can still see Alan and Dave

I think I can still see Alan and Dave

Alan S left on the short run announcing – we’re off to Two Mills, the long run can go to Holt or anywhere else they want. We all looked at each other – I stupidly said we could go via Summertrees and the Candle Factory and then round the back way to Holt. Fine said […]

To Prees and back

To Prees and back

Sorry about the dark photos – young Titch is studying photography at Mid Cheshire so clearly we need to get him to take them in future! The reason the top one is so bad is because the sun was so bright and was directly behind us – so it doesn’t give any idea as to […]

18 to Allgreave

18 to Allgreave

A fantastic turn out this morning with what must have been nearly 50 riders keen to start their 2012 fitness campaign – and anxious to get the miles in before the Llanberis weekend. The short group set off first (let us know how you got on) and I went with the long group, led by […]

Dave Astles RIP: Memorial Ride December 27th 2011

Here is Dave with Nick and Alan, when they had all won their categories in the TLI National Champs. He was so proud of that win – and this morning there can have been few more moving sights than that of his son Mark, wearing his Dad’s national champion’s shirt, leading out about 100 friends […]

Elaine cops it – and where was Julian by the way?!

A lovely ride in mild, sunny (but very windy) Autumn weather to the very nice Lavender Cafe at Dunham and back. We had our share of stops, with 3 punctures (it’s that hedge cutting time of year) and Elaine deciding that she needed to challenge Julian for the wobbly wheel prize at the club dinner, […]

The hatch, match and dispatch ride

The hatch, match and dispatch ride

What with Craig’s imminent baby (still not there, but we were all a bit twitchy when his phone rang) – and tales of an apparent suicide off the Church Minshull canal bridge, that led to the road being closed – we had a ride featuring a birth (nearly) a death (apparently) but no marriage, so […]

"Pillow"

"Pillow"

“Why do people shout ‘pillow’ when they ride over a bump in the road?” asked one of our newer riders today. Good question – I racked my brain for some arcane cycling terminology that I hadn’t yet learned, then finally realised what was going on. Pls. can people in future pls. articulate more clearly when […]

Waterproof socks don’t work

Waterproof socks don’t work

Here are some very wet riders at the Prees cafe! There were 12 of us – Richard M, Ady, Kris, Tony, Jim, three Johns, Kev, me and Carol and Woody – I think it was their first outing on the longer ride. Garry and Jed joined us en route but when the heavens opened and […]

Then there was one – a blog by Kev

It must have happened before but I suspect not very often, that the run leader returns on his own. Well to be honest there were only five of us to start with: myself, Dylan, Julian, Chris Latter and John Chrystal. Dylan and Jules, both race fit, set what would be fair to say was a […]

Blaze Farm

Blaze Farm

Sorry no photo today. Lots of people at the club today but only eight (Chris and Matt, Jules, Dylan, Graham, new rider Tony, Kev and me) opted for the longer ride. Kev led us (with a few helpful contributions from Graham!) and we took a direct route to the cross roads on the A54 then […]

Two Mills

Two Mills

A great club run – instead of splitting into a longer and shorter group, we all stayed together to ride to Two Mills, and we had well over 20 riders at the cafe. The ride there was VERY WET! We were on the new Chester Greenway when the clouds opened and Garry very sensibly suggested […]

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....
