No sense rider at the no Car Cafe

Last Sunday (that’s Sunday 12th) I was full of a cold and was not going to go out on the club run but then thought I would tag along and sit on the back, that would be better than staying at home. Unfortunately due to an activity generally known as ‘sodding about’ I left the […]

The challenge to find the Rickshaw, e...

Al had a good idea. As this year’s Children In Need Rickshaw Challenge was to pass within a hair’s breadth of us (well as near as Chelford anyway), Al thought it would be good and indeed different for us to ride down to see if we could cheer on the challenge, which was to ride […]

Long Sunday Rides

I’m aware that not everyone reads Cycling Weekly so just thought i’d share this. Hits the nail on the head in so many ways: Dr Hutch: Revealing the real motivation behind Sunday morning bike rides The weekend ride is a sacred ritual, but what motivates us to haul ourselves out of bed on a Sunday […]

To the Jovial Lookout with the BFG

As soon as I left the house I realised I had put on the wrong base layer (that’s a vest to the older generation). I just had a lightweight one on but as it was only 4 degrees a thicker one would have been in order. I quietly shivered most of the day. Destination today […]

Long Ride to Loggerheads. Or not.

As years have gone by it has become more and more apparent that as I get older, if I leave the bike alone for any period of time my fitness evaporates like it was never there in the first place. So it was on Sunday. I did quite well in the National RR Championships 9 […]

Club runs

Hi, For those that don’t know, I’ve now taken over the role as runs captain from Al. Al has done a fantastic job over the last 10 years so no pressure on me then!! Big thanks to Al but he’s going nowhere!! He will still be leading the short run when he’s out. I don’t […]

The ‘Cheshire is actually flat&...

On Saturday, amidst the chaos of the cancellation of cancelling the time trial, a few moments of respite gave way to conversations about club runs. Henrietta asked – ‘Where is the club run going to tomorrow?’ ‘It’s a TBA’ I suggested, ‘Rider’s choice, where do you want to go?’ ‘Somewhere flat and short’ came the […]

When Alan Met the Birthday Girl

Yesterday’s ramble to Plassey was a curious affair, as we seemed to be going downhill for the larger part of the day. At the club several people were perhaps put off by the sighting of the rare and mythical Duffy. No need to fear people as the creature is (mostly) tame. Anyway Jim, Matt, Paul H, Alan, Steve, […]

Short report on the short long run to...

It was 12 degrees when i left the house on Sunday morning. And spitting. It was that wet rain, the sort of rain that gets you wet. It stayed wet till lunch. Game for a laugh were Steve, Stuart, Alan, Geoff and me. We took the direct route out to Press, direct and flat. The […]

Five Father’s Day Freaks

Father’s Day yesterday and we were the Fathers, King’s of the road. Who’s the Daddy? Who’s the Daddy? We were. At least that’s how we set off. By the time we returned home though the road had chewed us up and spat us out and we were vanquished like Arnold Schwarzenegger after his first day at […]

Posted on behalf of Tony Booth Started out from Northwich lead by Graham with his mate Martin, Steve, Stu, Mat, Dillon, Chris, Ewart, Bruce, and myself Tony. Sorry if I’ve for forgotten anyone! Well it was truly a ride which was expected to be straight forward to blaze farm and back! but we all know! this is […]

Gone fishin’

A chilly but bright Sunday morning promised much and the day certainly delivered. At the rugby club, bright eyed and bushy tailed were, Paul, Mark, Jules, another Paul, Colin, Geoff, Matt, one more Paul, Me and Dylan. Dylan was resplendent in a shiny new club jersey but he was a half an hour early as he was […]
