Leo 30 mile TT – New Mens Competition Record

After missing out on a ride at the National 25 due to cancellation in July I was keen to round out the season on a high.  A quick look at the CTT events list unearthed the Leo 30 in Cambridge on the doorstep of some good friends who we’d not seen in a couple of years.  After […]

Weaver Valley CC – Hill Climb 2...

  It was hill climb time again this Sunday and this time we had already been through the loop, so things were a bit less stressful, only a bit mind! Yet again people came up trumps and we had all our helpers and Marshals lined up and ready to go. Quite a few new faces […]

How to cycle underneath a river

If I hadn’t seen a Sustrans post about it, I’d never have known about it, but visiting the Newcastle area now and again, I had to check it out. It’s a tunnel you see, under the River Tyne, but not your usual, cars, buses and other motorised transport affair, this was built for pedestrians and […]

ToB and WVCC

It’s been a great week thus far (and it’s only Wednesday) for the 2019 ToB, with the Green Jersey (for the overall leader of the race), swapping and changing. Facebook was busy with some vague plans for some who were interested to go and watch somewhere. I had plans just to cycle out to the […]

BDCA 100- the beating of the 4 hour barrier

By Sam Taylor BDCA 100 07/09/19 After doing my first 100 mile tt in July, I was keen to have another go at hopefully dipping under 4 hours and doing a 25mph ride, so Dave Fearon encouraged me to enter the BDCA event on the A100/4 course (on the A50 near Uttoxiter) which is known […]

Port Talbot 25 and a new PB

Port Talbot 25 and a new PB

By Alistair Stanway. Inspired by a man half my age after his superb ride in the 100 yesterday I travelled to South Wales today to have a crack at the fast R25/3H course for the Port Talbot CC 25. Keen to see what we could knock out and hunting a 25 PB. According to the […]

It’s Hot for Cross!

It’s Hot for Cross!

It’s only the 8th of September, and we’re already complete for round 1 and 2 of the North West Cyclocross Association League, with an excellent turn out by Weaver Valley!  Having had my CX debut last year in freezing conditions in a snow blizzard, 2019 round 1 and 2 have been positively barmy in comparison […]

Withington Wheelers 10TT – J2/3

We’re steadily heading toward the end of the road racing and time trialling season, and today’s 10TT by Withington Wheelers was a late add on after an event was cancelled with bad weather (I think!) earlier in the year. For the last J course 10 of the season, the entrants were Sam Taylor, Lynsey Astles, […]

That 25mile TT club record…

The women’s 25-mile club record has been an elusive one for me, firstly because it’s not something I thought I’d be worrying about when I started time trialling, and secondly because the club weren’t 100% sure what it was! With Dave Fearon saying “I’m sure Jackie White dipped under the hour in the 80s!” However, […]

These events don’t happen without your commitment to support them. The Hill Climb is on Sun 15th Sept Important Note: Revised start time of 14:00 […]

A Long Time In The Saddle

Number 16 30 seconds 10 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, GO, good luck. Does this sound familiar? Of course it does you know how a time trial works by now. But this wasn’t the start of it all for me. It was way back at Oulton Park talking to Adrian Japp and Dave Fearon about […]

Titch’s debut 12hr TT

When you journey thru the distances of TT’ing, it is usual to do it in a progressive manner, spending a few years riding 50’s, and 100’s before venturing into the realms of a 12hour TT.. However, Titch turned the convention book on its head by only riding 10’s, a couple of 25’s and just one […]

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....
