Referendum for a new club run. I̵...

Emailed Derek a couple of nights ago to see if he was out on Sunday, eager to hear his stories of his epic 600K Audax. He replied, and as Tilley’s in Bunbury was on the calendar, he suggested a route. ‘Approx 50 from Hartford odd bump.’ he said. ‘I like it!’ I replied, looking at the […]

Are we the long long club run?

A good turn out this morning,  A short run to Tilly’s in Bunbury, navigated by Derek H, and a long run to Prees.. after the usual general socialising the long run set off first.. as we topped Burrows hill, Jules looked back and said “oh  Gosh, there’s quite a few takers” [or something to that […]

Ferry across the Mersey ride – ...

Hi – yes its summer, so its time for the Ferry across the Mersey ride. This is a reminder post just in case you’ve forgotten to book the day of work – or for those who don’t look at the calendar! I’ve moved to an earlier date to avoid the school holidays and it will be on […]

Guide Dogs, team orders, glorious sun...

Wow. What a day. Hot, hot, hot. It was great to meet at the club and get on our way to feel the breeze on a hot day. We all gathered for 1 ride today, and set off for a ride to the Ice Cream Farm. As we rode down the entrance drive from the […]

Guide Dogs for the Blind – Tour...

Guide Dogs for the Blind – Tour de Tattenhall – 5th June 2016 What’s that all about then? Well, it’s been a couple of years since we’ve teamed up with Guide Dogs for the Blind – http://www.guidedogs.org.uk for a day to a) raise a bit of money for this worthy charitable cause, and b) to have a […]

Mow Cop – The return of the Kil...

It was definitely time to put Mow Cop back on the club run scene. Normally only reserved for long runs, we decided it would be a good idea to give it a go, then try out a new club run cafe highly recommended by one of us who had spotted a sign last time we were […]

Jim “the b@st#rd”

With the recent racing on a Sunday, I had been missing the good old club run, and with Pott Shrigley on the calendar, I thought it would be quicker to ride another 20 miles or so to Chinley rather than wait to get served and to pay there! So I changed the calendar a few […]

The familiar unfamiliar, big cakes, l...

It was a cooler than expected start to the day as I left home for the club. I left my arm warmers on and did a few miles of spinning to get the legs warm. Fortunately, as I neared the club, glimmers of blue sky did appear in the distance, although the wind kept things […]

The Sun Shines on the Righteous

The last time a large group assembled to head off to Ruthin back in February saw us absolutely drenched by the time we got there. Remember these????? Well not this time, In fact Factor 50 was the order of the day as we all doned shorts and short sleeve jerseys for first time this year. […]

New cafe stop, new riders to feed

New cafe stop, new riders to feed

It was a very good day for a ride for those new to road cycling with a group, and so we had four who turned up today to see what we are about. Three ladies, Lynn (who had been out with us once before), Nikki, and Debbie, and a returning ex-WVCC member in the form […]

Mow Cop, the not club run

The weather was too nice, so it had to be a day off. A shout out on Faceache, and a few others joined the fray. Em, who also booked the day off work, and Jim and Syd, official wrinklies, who booked a day off being retired and joined me for a bit of a reconnaissance ride […]

Cafe? I see no Cafe!

A cool and bright sunny morning had us battling through the crowds at the rugby club to get to the club for this morning’s runs. The crowds were for a host of rugby matches held today. The long run was due to go to Loggerheads, but no-one seemed enthusiastic about taking it, so we split 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....
