Handlebars and Seatposts..

The Saturday ride of the 25th July set off from the Three Greyhounds in Glorious sunshine heading for Holmes Chapel en route for Mow Cop, Knypersley Reservoir, and The Cloud. In what turned out to be a memorable ride, not for “killer” climbs, only 765m in 42 miles, or for the great views from the […]

Peak View Tea Rooms

A wonderful ride – lots made it to Macclesfield and then nine of us made it to the cafe – Graham was the run leader, then Lou, Ewart (who said he had swine flu and I wasn’t sure whether to believe him), Kevin, Kevan and I (all with sore legs after yesterday’s mountain biking), Gareth, […]

Two reports – a long wet ride and a less long sunny ride…

Thanks to Kevin and Claire for reports on today’s rides…it’s interesting to note the different weather conditions on each ride, both on the same day. The pics below are views to illustrate Kevin’s ride. From Kevin…With the promise of glorious views, sunshine, and the first climb of the day after 3 miles, five of us […]

About 12 of us rode to Audlem. A perfect day: sunny and warm, a cloudless sky, good company, brisk riding. Our sympathies went to all those of you out there who were stuck in an office!

A touch of romance…

A touch of romance…

Romance was in the air this week. The long group did a fabulous ride direct out to Algreave, up the Dunbars. Reaching the cafe were Kevan, Andy, Dennis, Kevin, Craig, and two new riders. This is where Romance Number One comes in – our two new riders, Sian and Dan, have just come back from […]

A wet Wednesday…

A wet Wednesday…

Thanks to Claire for this report… This Wednesday the rain fell and continued to fall. Only 8 intrepid riders ventured forth, and all agreed that they had pressing business and could only make a short run! I wonder why? Only Dennis had a cast iron excuse ( no pun intended) as he had to take […]

Ruthin in the sunshine…

Thanks to Kevin Campbell for this report on Sunday’s club run – I was otherwise engaged (see Bogblog for details!) On what proved to be one of the nicest days of the summer so far, a large group of over 20 gathered at the club house. It was especially good to see Andy P making […]

A "pub stop"

A "pub stop"

Only six of us out today, probably because of the vile weather forecast – as it happened it rained on the way out to Hatchmere, but from there on it was dry and quite pleasant. As most people couldn’t be out for long Jed suggested a pub stop: a fairly radical concept in clubrun culture! […]

Oulton Park

Oulton Park

What a turn out! Both races must have had over 60 riders. And WVCC provided a good proportion of them. The first race featured Alan Kemp, Graham Gregory, Dave Astles, Garry Brown, Les Charnley, Mark Thompson, Kevan and me. The pace was brisk, the tarmac was smooth. Alan, Kevan, Graham and Dave all got involved […]

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....
