Dancing on Ice on the Hornby Road

Six valiant souls (Nick, Jim, Jeff and his brother in law Jerry, Kev and me) arrived in Wray, near Lancaster, at 10 a.m., to ride the Hornby Road in honour of our absent MTB leader (Matt Hornby).  It was COLD!  I was worried that I’d be keeping everyone waiting so set off ahead, and due […]

I recall a number of conversations immediately following the ride along the lines […]

Searching for a ride… Short rid...

Having seen that no short ride had been planned for Sunday’s ride I thought that I would have a look back over my Strava activities to see if I could find something suitable. A quick search for “short” rides did not reveal many options, however I did find a ride that went to the Teddy […]

It’s that time of year. Warming up for Christmas, and what better way to do it than join the traditional Wrinklies ride to a Christmas dinner.

M&DTTA Christmas 10 – 2015

Not a WVCC event, but an event organised by our own Mr Fearon, and always a bit of festive fun. The highlight of the event is the fancy dress, and those who enter into this spirit really go to town on their outfits. It was a cold, wet day as I stood shivering at Allostock, […]
