Wild Wales Challenge 2016

Wild Wales Challenge 2016

A number of you may (or may not) have fond memories from last year’s event, personally, it was probably the toughest ride I have ever done, over 8000 ft of elevation gain in around 85 miles 2015 route can be found here. I recall a number of conversations immediately following the ride along the lines […]

Searching for a ride… Short rid...

Having seen that no short ride had been planned for Sunday’s ride I thought that I would have a look back over my Strava activities to see if I could find something suitable. A quick search for “short” rides did not reveal many options, however I did find a ride that went to the Teddy […]

Who’s for seconds? The Wrinklie...

It’s that time of year. Warming up for Christmas, and what better way to do it than join the traditional Wrinklies ride to a Christmas dinner. Arrived at Hatchmere in shorts and a long sleeved top, just to mark the fact that we are sharing a climate with the Australian Christmas, except that we aren’t […]

In a change to the advertised program...

..we went to the Mills. Given the interesting weather, including an even more interesting wind, I didn’t want  to ride back from the cafe into a head wind, so decided on a different – call it unimaginative if you will – trip to the Mills, knowing full well that we’d be into the wind, with the […]

To Egypt and Back

To Egypt and Back

Following a wet Saturday, a hardy bunch arrived this morning hoping for better weather, it was quite mild for this time of year, with some even wearing shorts. Ady took the short run to the Mills, and we (the long Run) went to Cleopatra’s in Holt (formerly Hildegard’s). We set off via Weaverham and Gorstage, […]

To Holt with the Wednesday Wrinklies…

I managed to get a day off work today and enjoyed a rare ride out with our wrinkly colleagues.  Well they might be wrinkly, but they’re still very fit and also very friendly and chatty.  And they’re very bad at setting off on time. I was at the meeting point at 9.45 and we finally […]

A season of mist and mellow fruitfuln...

We had a good group out today on the short run, which was heading for the Lavender Barn at Dunham Village. We rode along pretty Cheshire lanes, in good formation and at a steady pace. The mist never relented and the road surfaces were wet and greasy, made even trickier by wet leaves on all […]

Clocks go back this weekend!

Don’t forget now will you? At 02:00 on the 25th October (early Sunday morning when you are fast asleep), the clocks will go back an hour! This is probably fine if you use a smart phone or computer as they’ll probably set themselves. Best to check though! You really don’t want to turn up an […]

A fast ride to Ruthin and back

A fast ride to Ruthin and back

Well having dithered about whether I was up to doing the long run or not, I decided to go for it, encouraged by the fact that John Keen (he of the “I hit the wall” forum post from last weekend) was doing it too and he might prove a useful ally at the back. A […]

The Wild Wales Challenge

The Wild Wales Challenge

A dozen or so WVCC riders rode in the Wild Wales Challenge today, enjoying/enduring a tough 85 mile route with no less than 7,500 feet of ascent. We started in Bala, climbed up to the Bwlch-y-Groes, then down and up and down and up and down and up to the outskirts of Barmouth, then Dolgellau, […]

Too late for a blog…. so not a blog… and not a race… a club run.

Far too late to be posting a blog on a Wednesday about last Sunday’s run, so here are a couple of pictures instead. Of note though, was that it was a really nice day, and that we got there and back before the rain later on. Also of note is that Carol accuses me of […]

All the ladies… and a few bloke...

All the ladies… and a few blokes too.. Short run to the Mills

After a sunny Saturday, I changed the TBA to the Mills. Lack of imagination, maybe, but a great destination on an August Sunday. I turned up at the club to already find a couple of lady club members, and soon there were more, until they were five strong, lined up and looking determined. There were […]

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....
