    A fabulous but very tough ride today in the Wild Wales Challenge, along with a dozen or so Weaver Valley pals. 85 miles, 7,500 feet of ascent, beautiful quiet roads, monster hills and stunning views. Memorable, hard and fun. Blog on https://www.weavervalleycc.org.uk/blog-2/

    Great pic from around the table. Facial expression digressing perfectly from happy to fear!

    Wrinkley ride power rules the Wild Wales Challenge. Well done to those of us riding and completing the course. It was a good day and thank goodness, the weather was fine and dry.

    I’m not sure about my hill climbing ability any longer but, the exhilaration on completing the event and receiving a trophy in the form of an engraved piece of slate, forms a rewarding and 😎 lasting memory.

    Well done Weaver Valley riders and thank you to the Merseyside CTC for organizing the event.

    Great photos Andy and good to see you made some nice new friends, given that we all deserted you! (Nothing like club solidarity eh!) How did you get on, we were quite worried about you, but it looks like you had time to fit in some photography at least! How on earth did that bloke get up those hills on a recumbent, did he have some easy gears?

    I felt like the lamb escaping the slaughter Eleanor starting before everyone else! the guy in the recumbent just ground it out, his mate just walked beside him telling me “oh, he’ll do it alright….”

    Jed… he did your lot proud!

    how did I get on….? the kids were well impressed with the slate ‘medal’ 😉
