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 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. We took the route used by the Countess of Chester Hospital Midnight walk down Dee Banks and Sandy Lane into Handbridge. Having crossed over the stretch of water where […]

Juniors ride to AJs – thanks Claire for the report

There were 11 riders, including 6 children, in this group today – Dave, Caroline and Connor Fearon, Claire, Robert and Elinor O’Brien, Derek and Claire Heine, Steven Shields, and also Dylan and Phil Sharrock. After the heavy rain the day before, it was a relief to have some sunny weather, even if it was accompanied […]

2nd Kids’ run to Nanney’s Lock – report from Claire

There were 12 adults and kids today setting off for Nanney’s Lock Marina between Church Minshall and Nantwich. We passed the riders from the Nantwich triathlon that was taking place at the same time, and for which I had a number! Dave Fearon wore some very fetching ‘faded denim’-look shorts from the 1980s to complete […]

Thurstaston – then there were two

Not sure where the shorter ride went, but the longer ride, led by Jed, went to Thurstaston (not easy to say if you have a lithp). It was like 8 green bottles. We started with a nice, companionable and conversationally-compatible bunch of 8 and set off through Crowton and beyond on a pleasantly-roundabout route to […]

Three rides in one day

Three rides in one day

Here is a picture of our junior ride enjoying the sunshine… Three rides today – one longer one, one shorter one, and one for juniors and beginners – an excellent idea, and judging by the numbers at the British Royal Legion, one that is proving v. popular. Dave Fearon led this ride, Alan took the […]

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