We had a good turn out today, with about a dozen setting off for the long run into the hills, and the rest of us heading in a large group of 20+ to Wheelock. This group was a bit too large for even the most sympathetic drivers, so we split up again just before Goostrey. The […]
Well,it’s nearly time for the big one! There’ll be a few that are riding Llanberis for the first time this year, so here are a few details to let you know what is going on. Luggage We’re only going for one night,so you don’t need to bring everything and the kitchen sink(!) There will be […]
With the thought of not being out on Sunday due to a much needed night out on town, I thought I would venture out on the Saturday training run. Marshalled by Jules it is a run to The Mills and back leaving from Kingfisher in Kingsmead at 9.30 and Hanging Gate, Weaverham 9.45. Today’s route […]
Kev offered to lead the longer run to Rainow, but this suggestion was met with a universal “but we want to be back in time for the Tour”. So Kev promised that we’d be back for 2 p.m. – and we nearly were. It was a beautiful day for a ride to the hills, and we […]
A perfect day for a ride – and a long one it was too: Jules recorded 86 miles at an average speed of 16.8 mph which was going some, given that the ride included some hilly terrain. Craig had planned a fabulous route to Loggerheads – we went out through Tattenhall and Holt, and enjoyed/endured some interesting […]
A beautiful day and a great route from Craig. We all set off at a fair lick up to Beeston Castle and to Malpas via Gallantry Bank. On the way out of Malpas Craig called a right which only four of us on the back of the bunch heard – the rest of the riders […]
What a fantastic day. After the gathering at the start, of eager(ish) souls all trying to still digest their breakfast, we waited for the go. Whilst we were waiting, we were treated to up-close scrutiny of Kev’s nice new red (pink) handlebar tape. Which I believe is now for sale on the forum… (http://wvcc.roflforum.net/t954-free-pink-handlebar-tape) As […]
Eager(ish) for another day of pain…
Well, the field arrived at various different times, all on one piece. Now at dinner, with an excellent looking menu. All went well on the ride, with most needing no assistance from a ride in the van. There was one reported incident, as yet unconfirmed by evidence, of a rider holding on to Dave Hinde’s […]
..’cos we’re half way there..
An enthusiastic bunch and fine weather to start! Ruthin here we come….
Well as El had got up at 6 and cycled to work, I felt guilty enough to turn up for my first Saturday training ride. I was wide awake anyway El doesn’t do anything quietly! Six intrepid souls were there, Alan K, Andy P, Kev C, Jon Conboy, Jules and myself. In view of the […]
