The familiar unfamiliar, big cakes, l...

It was a cooler than expected start to the day as I left home for the club. I left my arm warmers on and did a few miles of spinning to get the legs warm. Fortunately, as I neared the club, glimmers of blue sky did appear in the distance, although the wind kept things […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

In stark difference to the week before, the weather was dry but the wind was in an entirely different direction. This made for a very hard night for most, and there weren’t many who were gaining time on the night, with a crosswind off the start, and a headwind along the A50 for what seemed like […]

An off road weekend of ups and downs....

An off road weekend of ups and downs. And more ups.

The dates chosen for this year’s club off roader glamping weekend coincided with the ever popular Borderland Rotary Mountain Bike Challenge, so in democratic fashion I deferred my choice of the Scottish borders for the Welsh ones and last Friday evening eight of us arrived in Llangollen for the traditional MTBing triumvirate of eating too much […]

VTTA – Manchester & NW Gro...

VTTA Manchester & NW Group Flier Thanks and best wishes Brian […]

The Sun Shines on the Righteous

The last time a large group assembled to head off to Ruthin back in February saw us absolutely drenched by the time we got there. Remember these????? Well not this time, In fact Factor 50 was the order of the day as we all doned shorts and short sleeve jerseys for first time this year. […]

New cafe stop, new riders to feed

New cafe stop, new riders to feed

It was a very good day for a ride for those new to road cycling with a group, and so we had four who turned up today to see what we are about. Three ladies, Lynn (who had been out with us once before), Nikki, and Debbie, and a returning ex-WVCC member in the form […]

Mow Cop, the not club run

The weather was too nice, so it had to be a day off. A shout out on Faceache, and a few others joined the fray. Em, who also booked the day off work, and Jim and Syd, official wrinklies, who booked a day off being retired and joined me for a bit of a reconnaissance ride […]

Club 10s – Practice 10 – ...

What a beautiful night for hurting yourself on a club TT! None of the hailstone and changeable weather of last week, just sunshine, and a breeze to help you along the A50, (but against you on the way home). 29 riders came out to test their mettle and some very good times were recorded. The […]

Tour of the Abberleys – An idiot’s experience

For those of you who I have not already bored with the story of how I came to be in this mad event in the first place here goes – Alan Kemp, on my only Sat training ride of the year, smoothly cruised up next to me and in his silky persuasive tones asked if […]

Race Report – Cheshire Series &...

Tuesday evening saw the 2nd of the 4 event series in the Dave Astles Memorial Cheshire Series. Previously this was raced on the 5 mile circuit at Lower Withington, now the 10 mile circuit at Siddington due to the highly publicised Police restrictions on Cheshire. The evening also brought much better weather and was considerably warmer last week […]

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....
