Tigger and the Steam Train

Saturday morning saw a damp 12 degrees but as the day went on it warmed up and dried out to become a very pleasant, low wind, autumnal day. The crossroads at Hatchmere were positively busy as Jim D, Spanish Jed, Keith, Kevan, Eleanor, Jimmy, Ewart, Alex, Ben, Steve, Paddy and Me assembled in varying degrees of […]

The no-photo, no-sliced bread, no egg...

Not as fast or feisty as the long run, today’s ride was to got to the Candle Factory at Burwardsley. I didn’t count how many of us there were, but around 20 of us remained for the short ride at the club as the long ride departed. It was a fine day for a ride. […]

Three punctures, feisty Kris Z and a ...

Today was a great day to be out on the bike; clear skies and fairly dry roads. Just about perfect aside from the strong headwind. My theory is that the winter wind is harder to get through as it is colder and hence denser. Is there any weight to this? The long run was not […]

The non club run club run.

When is a club run not a club run? What are the numbers needed to make the ride quorate and not just another ride? Is 2 enough? Rain was falling steadily when I left home this morning and by the time I arrived at the club the volume had increased somewhat. Imagine my delight at 28 […]

Wild Wales Challenge – Trophy Award

August Bank holiday seems such a long time ago now, but for those who rode the Wild Wales challange, the best kept secret in cycling, it will be remembered as a glorious, if challenging day. Yesterday we were awarded the coveted Harold Kewish Trophy for the club team with most finishers, WVCC had twenty five […]

Fooled by the forecast

Kev C, Matthew and myself

Ten souls were already assembled at the Hazel Pear when I got there just before 9.30 (I try to get to any rendezvous just a couple of minutes early as I hate waiting and getting cold). We were about half and half Weaver Valley and Warrington Road Club. The Weaver Valley half were me, Alan, […]

Loggerheads 10 September

Armwarmers or not armwarmers, that was the question faced on Sunday morning as it was bright and sunny but with a definite nip in the air first thing. No armwarmers for me. Bruce, Carol, Colin Walsh, Colin Wood, Craig, Mark, Paul, Stu, Tony and me set off for Loggerheads at a very civilised pace all […]

It’s not all about the cake.. sometimes it’s about the ice cream too..

The weekend weather forecast just seemed to improve as the week progressed, and Sunday morning saw it only slightly overcast, but a pleasant temperature and little wind. The Wild Wales posse were already on their way as the few that were left met at the club. There weren’t many there, but what we lacked in […]

Long Run – The No Car Cafe

Well, the plan was to go over to Tea on the Green at Chinley as a precursor to next weeks Wild Wales Challange, however, I had already suspected that Tea on the Green may not be large enough with everyone making a last ditch effort to get miles and hills in the legs, so I […]

Two Mills Club Run – A case of ...

What a difference a few days makes in weather terms. As I rolled up at the club, I already felt overdressed with arm warmers on, so peeled them off at stuffed them into my saddlebag. The clear and warm weather brought plenty out, and two runs were set on their respective journeys, with Paul navigating […]

Ferry, puncture, walruses, pigeons, w...

I left the house without my rain jacket on, and within 6 feet, put it on as it started to rain. Well, we were warned, but nevertheless, a baker’s dozen gathered at the swing bridge with the skies delivering the promise of precipitation already. We thus set off promptly from Sutton Weaver, knowing that we […]

The real long run

The real long run

Well Kev and I opted for the “shorter long run”, but as ours was run by a real WVCC rider in proper kit, whilst the other long run was run by some imposter in Dulwich Paragon kit (he needs to speak to the WVCC kit secretary), we considered ours was the real long run. Jules […]

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....
