Two Mills

Two Mills

A swift and uneventful ride to Two Mills today with a good size group. The outward trip started in the rain but this eased after an hour or so. We rode through Tarporley, Tattenhall, Churton then up through Chester, onto the old train track to Saughall – the return trip was direct through the Forest. […]

Llanberis 2011

Llanberis 2011

Another excellent weekend. Well done and thank you to Graham and Ann for organising and providing transport and en route support – to Steve for driving and for his enthusiastic encouragement – and to Dave Hinde for providing a big black van and much-appreciated mechanical assistance. Kev and I had a great ride out and […]

Summertrees and lots of climbing…

Above – the best bit – lunch at the cafe! WVCC takes over Summertrees cafe… Well ever since I started riding with WVCC I’ve been persuaded that if I want to be a good bike rider I’ve got to learn to love hills – so with some trepidation I agreed to go on the longer […]

Well we didn’t quite make it to Bangor on Dee – a report from Jed

Another good turn out today and a choice of Audlem for the shorter ride or Bangor on Dee for the longer. I (Jed) took sixteen riders on the longer run following a route I’d ‘muddled out’ using Google maps and the little orange man who can actually help you view the roads (as they were […]

Loggerheads direct

Loggerheads direct

Once again a huge turnout at the club – must have been 40+ riders. I set off with the long group to Loggerheads – we didn’t get very far till Gareth punctured in Delamere Forest and the shorter group went past us, never to be seen again. Graham led and up through Kinnerton advised us […]

An’ice ride to Prees

An’ice ride to Prees

There were loads of riders at Harford, all attracted by a sunny if cold day and their New Year’s resolutions to get some miles in. One ride went to Holt, I went with the longer ride to Prees.We were slightly disorganised to start with, but things did settle down eventually and we made a nice […]

Club run to Two Mills

Club run to Two Mills

The WVCC Allstars team at Two Mills. (What will it take to get Chris, Keith and Graham into club kit?!) (Craig you’re allowed – for a bit anyway – because you’re new: the others have no excuse!) Lots of people at the Royal Legion this morning – most decided to go with Alan on the […]

The great WVCC mudguard challenge…

Well Kev and I turned up at the Royal Legion at 8 a.m. (having intelligently put the clock forward not back) thinking it was 10 a.m. – and couldn’t work out why there was nobody else there. Maybe they’d started at 9.30 – so we set off like bats out of hell towards Prees to […]

Loggerheads – the way club runs...

Loggerheads – the way club runs should be!

This photo was taken during a very long cow stop on the way home from Loggerheads. But we were all bushed, so the stop (for about 1001 cows all walking very slowly) was very welcome.This was one of the best club runs I’ve done, with a baker’s dozen making it to the cafe – Vince, […]

Alan’s Guide Dog ride

Alan’s Guide Dog ride

Over 30 riders including lots of new adult riders, and (probably) a record turn out of ladies and lots of youngsters. And somehow Alan managed to keep everyone together and everyone entertained! There was a hill climb, a sprint and one 4 mile road race for the youngsters and another for the adults. The winners […]

Kids rool…

Sun 27th June:Kids run to Two Mills – thanks Claire for this report…Only six of us set out today, including Connor, Robert and Elinor. We quickly felt the heat as we climbed through Kingsley and over the top at Newton towards Mickle Trafford, bound for Two Mills. We took a new part of the cycleway […]

Wednesday Wrinklies Wriding to Wrexham

Wed 23rd June: Wrinklie Run to Wrexham – thanks to Claire for this report..A group of 16 riders rode to Chester on a hot, sunny day.
