Don’t miss – The Ron Sant...

It’s nearly time for the Ron Sant Memorial Ride Audax event! Sunday 1st May 2016 What? Audax? Well, for those who don’t know, you can check out Audax UK as this tells you what you need to know about the very idea of long distance cycling. Of course, this event is on the shorter end of the […]

Une belle journée et un tour de cycle...

A beautiful and a lovely cycle ride… (excuse my French). Chilly, bright, a good day for a beginner’s ride, and a few beginners turned out, as well as a returning beginner and a young lady called Shelagh, who made a welcome return to the Sunday run to brighten the day further. We headed out through […]

Clocks go forward – summer club...

Yes girls and boys, as long as it isn’t wet, you can ditch your mudguards and come along half an hour earlier than normal! Clocks go forward this weekend, and we’ll be meeting at 09:30 from now till the clock go back again.

Sunny days? Fresh air? Easy cycling? ...

Well I’ll tell you. There was only the slightest ‘cool’ to the air this morning, and as we gathered at the club amongst the usual throng of kids and adults about to play rugby, the sun popped out to say ‘hi’, as it did last week as well. Most odd. Two groups headed out in […]

The “almost as fast as the fast...

The “almost as fast as the fast training ride” ride

Well this one was an eye-opener. I’d not done this training run before and it felt very different from a club run. We met at Hatchmere at 10 and right from the start it felt like I was hanging on. With me were Jim Williams, aka Cancellara, patron of the peloton, who professed to feeling […]

UPDATE – Wild Wales Challenge 2...

Following on from my post in January, as promised, I can confirm this event is now open for entries, the fee is £20 and further details are below. If you are interested, please contact me and I will pass on the login details, without which, you wont be able to enter. The are around 10 people who […]

To Prees and back

To Prees and back

Celebrating the fact that the weather was rather better than last weekend, fourteen hardy souls set out on the long run to Prees. We’d been promised a steady ride, which would suit those wanting to step up to the long run. Buoyed by post-Llanberis hubris I decided I should be able to hack it, as […]

How very civilised. Short run 28/02/2...

Let us for a moment ponder the climatic differences of last week to this: Yeah. Slightly different. This week the long run group headed off to Prees with a healthy number of riders, all keen to keep the Llanberis legs exercised. The short run was however to offer a more civilised and amenable approach. We […]

WVCC & WRC Club Run – Ruthi...

WVCC & WRC Club Run – Ruthin

The 3rd Weaver Valley Cycling Club and Warrington Road Club Joint Club Run will be held on 8th May 2016 and will be a hilly route of around 80-90 miles to Ruthin. We will meet WRC at the Hazel Pear in Acton bridge at 9:20ish to set of by 09:30. We’ll be looking to add […]

It’s all downhill from hereR...

..especially if you are one of the many who tried to get the crown from last year’s freewheel winner Jamie, by trying to freewheel down a different hill this year. On the club run out on Sunday, a stop was made at the top of the hill just past Brines Brow car park in Delamere, and […]

Downhill Comp

Now the annual ride downhill is fast approaching and it’s date is on the calendar, it’s the last championship to be decided before the coveted trophy is awarded at the club dinner. Jamie Wilson who is the current holder has a injury scare that may keep him from defending his title. Just to let you […]

To Holt, or aaaarrrghhhhhh Llanberis&...

Yes, it is that time of year. We need the miles (especially me). It didn’t feel that time of the year though. Those turning up, stopped, uttered words like ‘Phew’, ‘too hot’ or started putting sun tan lotion on. Okay, not that last bit, but it was unseasonably warm on Sunday and many were over-dressed. […]

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....
