Wrinklies Christmas Dinner 2017

There was some doubt as to whether weather conditions would improve today, but early in the morning there had been a convenient thaw, with the promise of filthy roads and rain. We’re on then. Up early, I festooned my bike with Christmas lights, and used bottle holder number 1 for a nice Malbec. After leaving […]

Flaps, Mills and Etiquette

Flaps The flip-side to enjoying riding on bracing winter roads is they tend to not be as clean as summer ones. Come October time and the clocks changing there is always a ‘mudguards’ call and people, over the next couple of weeks, polish up their summer bike and put it to bed for the winter […]

Llanberis 2018

  It’s that time again, … LLANBERIS TIME… Many of this year’s riders seem to have forgotten about the ‘weather’ [who could forget the weather?] and have already committed to next years trip. However, there are still some places available. So if you fancy the challenge of 190 miles over a weekend just send me […]

No sense rider at the no Car Cafe

Last Sunday (that’s Sunday 12th) I was full of a cold and was not going to go out on the club run but then thought I would tag along and sit on the back, that would be better than staying at home. Unfortunately due to an activity generally known as ‘sodding about’ I left the […]

WVCC Kit – New Administrator

Hi everyone, as I’ve newly taken over as kit secretary from Jim Duffy, I thought I’d do a post to update for those not already aware. I’ve sold a few bits of kit over the last couple of weeks, so thought I’d just update with the latest stocks. Below shows what we have in from […]

The challenge to find the Rickshaw, e...

Al had a good idea. As this year’s Children In Need Rickshaw Challenge was to pass within a hair’s breadth of us (well as near as Chelford anyway), Al thought it would be good and indeed different for us to ride down to see if we could cheer on the challenge, which was to ride […]

Long Sunday Rides

I’m aware that not everyone reads Cycling Weekly so just thought i’d share this. Hits the nail on the head in so many ways: Dr Hutch: Revealing the real motivation behind Sunday morning bike rides The weekend ride is a sacred ritual, but what motivates us to haul ourselves out of bed on a Sunday […]

To the Jovial Lookout with the BFG

As soon as I left the house I realised I had put on the wrong base layer (that’s a vest to the older generation). I just had a lightweight one on but as it was only 4 degrees a thicker one would have been in order. I quietly shivered most of the day. Destination today […]

Manchester Regional Track League 3rd ...

After last night’s Weaver Valley track night my legs were decidedly heavy and I went in to my first track league of the season with some trepidation particularly so as this was round 7 and so many other riders would have been warmed up through the previous rounds. I was however buoyed by the fact […]

Long Ride to Loggerheads. Or not.

As years have gone by it has become more and more apparent that as I get older, if I leave the bike alone for any period of time my fitness evaporates like it was never there in the first place. So it was on Sunday. I did quite well in the National RR Championships 9 […]

Clocks change this weekend!!

Don’t forget now will you? At 02:00 on the 29th 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 […]

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....
