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, […]

Hill Climb – Volunteers Required

Its that time of year again folks where we need your support in marshalling our Cat and Fiddle Hill Climb. We really need members to help out where they can. 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 […]

Final Fling – 14th August 2019

Final Fling – 14th August 2019

Thanks to the riders who turned up for our final club 10 of the season.  There were some notable rides on the night.  Andy Milligan and Paul Longley have been producing some great rides this year and finally they got a win with a tie for first place with 23:13.  Titch now has to take […]

Club records 2019 – the story s...

As per Ady’s post on Facebook, it’s better for the club’s records if we blog results so that they’re in chronological and easier to find. With this in mind, here’s a record of the club champ results so far this year, with only the 12hr and hill climb left this season… 10 mile champs – […]

Club 10’s  – 7th August 2019 – Final Counting Round

So the cup competitions are all over bar the shouting.  16 people turned up to try and make a difference and as is the tradition I won’t publish the Guardian Cup and Scratch Cup final standings as they will be announced at the post Final Fling social in the Crown at Lower Peover next Wednesday. […]

Club 10 31/07/2019 Cancelled

Due to the flooding on the course, tonight’s 10 is unfortunately cancelled. There were official road closure signs between the garage where we start and the Three Greyhounds pub this afternoon, so, to ensure that we consider rider safety first, we have made this decision.

Club 10 – Round 9 – 24th July 2019

Cracking evening yesterday with lots of sunshine resulting in plenty of PB’s.  A special mention to our Carol (Robson not Kirkwood):), who demolished her PB from 28:22 to 27:03!!!  I think the club needs to order an EPO test kit and an X-Ray machine for next season as some of these improvements are amazing.  Only […]

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....
