A hilly ride to the ice cream farm

A hilly ride to the ice cream farm

A good group met at Hartford and split into a longer and a shorter group. John Conboy led the longer group which I joined. We rode out of Weaverham via Acton Bridge and a succession of short poky hills up to Kingsley, then over to Delamere Forest, and up the Yeld to Primrose Hill and […]

Thanks to Nick for the following run report…Alan Silver took one group and Paul Lawson led the rest of us (about 18 to start with) along the lanes through Nantwich and Wybunbury to Dagfields for an early lunch. 12 of us enjoyed beans or the local delicacy; Staffordshire oatcakes, gallons of tea and victoria sponge.

A message from Gary Date; and a confession.

Gary Date sends the following message from the Lakes: I am going to start getting ready for the Fred Witton ( I wanna get sub 9 hours) I know I am already entered, plus my flat is a good base point for training loops etc. I’m sure we all wish him well… And an Underhill […]

Allgreave, Blaze Farm from above!

Aah the perils of the “grapevine”. 9.30 start? or 10.00 start?Well if your not sure best to try both! As some of us did who believed the website!There were about half a dozen of us who were very cold by the time we set off at 10.05 having hung around since before 9.30! Moral of […]

Zip ties rule…

Zip ties rule…

Lots of souls at Hartford this morning but most opted for Alan’s shorter run – including two tandems courtesy of the Fearons and the Gregorys. Once it had been announced that the longer group was heading for the hills there was a notable lack of take-up and eight of us set off. Five minutes later […]

Two Groups, One Destination….

Two Groups, One Destination….

30 August 2009 Lots of riders turned up for this one. I don’t know if it was due to Nicks PR recently but we had quite a few new riders, plus returnees. With the racing season drawing to a close as well, Alan Kemp, fresh from his success at the LVRCC Nationals, was also there. […]

Time travel, opiates and fit gits…

Only 15 or so riders today. We all stayed together till Waverton, then one group set off for the ice cream farm and another rode to Holt Garden Centre, into a strong headwind. The cafe conversation was entertaining, as is to be expected when Jed and John are sitting on the same table. We had […]

Advice from Baz..

Advice from Baz..

From Claire..I asked Baz what he did when he was younger to get fit? He said ” I used to cycle 100 miles up the Cheshire Cat to work, put in a 42 hour day then cycle home again with flat tyres because I couldn’t afford any air, and all this on one fish supper […]

A ride with Kev and Lance…

Here we are at the Tour along with our mate Lance! We had a great week in the Alps, staying in a chalet just above Bourg St. Maurice, owned by Sam and Andy – http://www.vanillaski.com/Alpine_etape/ – if anyone’s interested in staying there, we’d thoroughly recommend it. Sam used to cook for the British Cycling team […]

Dagfields Danger Ride

Dagfields Danger Ride

The long run to Dagfields was beset by a number of “unplanned incidents” which added spice to and otherwise ordinary Sunday run. The group of 18 set off in glorious weather which managed to last all day which made a pleasant change as we are so often caught in showers at some point in the […]

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....
