Club 10’s – Round 5 – 13th June 2018

A blustery night for once with rain threatening but fortunately never came.  Cheshire East decided to dig up some more roads so we reverted to the old Lach Dennis/ Barkers Lane 2 lapper.  We had 6 visitors and the winner overall was Dave Jones (unattached) who was once a quick rider and hasn’t lost too […]

WVCC 10’s – 2-up – ...

Another great night for the “so called” 2-up.  “So called” because only 2 pairs rode and 15 solos which begs the question should we drop the event and just have a solo race in future.  Fastest pair were Ged lacey and his partner (only for racing I hasten to add!), Alex Chaffey Green with a […]

Drinking and Eating

Drinking and Eating

Have you ever wondered are you eating or drinking enough on your  30 to 100 mile training rides? Well going through my many cycling books it’s always a nice reminder when you come across a picture which reminds you!  and reminds you in a big way! and reminds you of the question! am I eating […]

Club 10’s – Round 4 ̵...

An unusually still and warm evening following a rainy afternoon produced float conditions and as a result we had a number of PB’s tonight.  Paddy Lucas stole the show with his winning time of 25:08.  Carl Hitchenson wopped a massive 1min 40 secs off his PB to take maximum 25 points towards his Guardian Cup […]

WVCC Summer BBQ 28th July

WVCC Summer BBQ 28th July

  It’s around 2 months until the WVCC BBQ at the rugby club on the 28th July. The catering will be done by Clever catering again. Those that came last year all loved to food. Cost per adult will be £10 and kids under 12 £3:50. I will be asking for payment 3 weeks before the […]

Club 10’s – Round 3 – 23rd May 2018

Yet another cracking night with several PB’s.  Quickest man was Paul Connor with a his first of many 25mph rides recording 23:49.  Emily also stepped up another gear tonight on her meteoric rise to stardom with a stonking 24:40 for 2nd quickest overall out of 24 riders.  Emily will go well under the hour for […]

Club 10 – Second Round – ...

Club 10 – Second Round – 16th May 2018

A great turnout for the 10 this week on a sunny but cool evening.  Good to see a few new (and some old), faces setting benchmark times for the Guardian cup including: Rob Dacey, Darren Johnson, Luke Curbishley, Colin Latter, Carl Hitchenson and most notably 15 year old Sam Jones.  Your rides from next week […]

Club 10 – 1st Round – 9th May 2018

Members were clearly put off by the rain that started early evening on Wednesday as only 7 riders took part.  Shame as it stopped raining for the event so everybody who did ride got away with it.  Incidentally skin is waterproof (says he who also didn’t ride)! Roadworks on the A50 forced a change to […]

Club 10 – Practice 10 – 2...

Club 10 – Practice 10 – 2nd May 2018

A very windy night produced some surprisingly good times on Wednesday.  Regulars will know that a strong wind directly behind on Penny’s Lane is a good sign as you get a 2 mile kick start followed by mostly cross winds, with very little head wind.  We had a few first time riders and all went […]

Club 10 – 2-up – 25th April 2018

  Wednesday saw the start of our popular club 10’s on the Lach Dennis course.  The weather was cool with showers scudding across the skies but fortunately skirting around the course on either side.  18 riders supported the event, some riding solo and others as pairs.  The winning pair was Steve Malkin & Paul Connor […]

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....
