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 […]

A ride through Sandstone country to Erbistock

Carl, Kevin, Richard, John, Chris and Kevan enjoying spring sunshine at Erbstock.. A good turn out at Hartford – the shorter group set off for a circuitous ride to the ice cream farm whilst I joined the longer group, setting off to Bangor on Dee and led by Richard Munro. There were nine of us, […]

Spring has sprung

Spring has sprung

Well it must be spring, because we’re setting off at 9.30 on Sundays now. I know the “old” diary says 10 a.m. and it said 10.30 in the Guardian but they’re all wrong and we were right. This confusion might explain the lower than normal numbers out for a ride today – probably 12 or […]

Llanberis 2010

Llanberis 2010

An amazing weekend! Somewhere between 40 and 50 cyclists made it to Llanberis and back in weather that was considerably better than the forecast and infinitely better than the Acopalypse of two years ago. So we had a tailwind on the way out and nothing much to worry us on the way back other than […]

"Just to Two Mills…"

"Just to Two Mills…"

Well how hard can a ride to Two Mills be, I thought to myself as 11 of us set off from Hartford? I should’ve known as soon as Alan Kemp decided to take the lead and direct us over towards his favourite training grounds. Down to the ice cream farm and already we were down […]

Well at least some of us managed to get some miles in

Well at least some of us managed to get some miles in, despite the covering of snow and post-club-dinner-hangovers! Kev and I had a great ride on our mountain bikes up past Vale Royal Abbey, along the Whitegate Way (the dinky bits of singletrack along the side of the main path) then through the forest […]

It was wet but at least we were out…

Well at least we managed a ride, after all that snow and ice, but it was of the very wet variety, the sort where you don’t want to be either 1. the rider without the mudguards because everyone tuts at you or 2. the rider behind the rider without the mudguards because you get diluted […]

A message from Alan…

A message from Alan…

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....
