Peak View Tea Rooms

Peak View Tea Rooms

A wonderful ride – lots made it to Macclesfield and then nine of us made it to the cafe – Graham was the run leader, then Lou, Ewart (who said he had swine flu and I wasn’t sure whether to believe him), Kevin, Kevan and I (all with sore legs after yesterday’s mountain biking), Gareth, […]

Delamere 11 July

Delamere 11 July

Follow this man through the forest if you can! Here is Ross in action at Brown Backs Racing’s Lea Quarry event (thanks to them for the pic). He always seems to find some undiscovered trails, so don’t miss out. All abilities welcome and we can split into two groups if it suits. We certainly won’t […]

When I’m 64…When I get older, losing my hair, will I still be riding my bike as fast as these fellas?

A perfect hot day and 13 of us set off to the Lock Cafe at Whitchurch. Nine of us got there. We worked out that excluding me and Jed (we’re the relative youngsters) the average age was 64. Amazing. The normal quality of banter was enhanced by Richard Heywood’s return to the fold. Richard, removing […]

Two reports – a long wet ride and a less long sunny ride…

Thanks to Kevin and Claire for reports on today’s rides…it’s interesting to note the different weather conditions on each ride, both on the same day. The pics below are views to illustrate Kevin’s ride. From Kevin…With the promise of glorious views, sunshine, and the first climb of the day after 3 miles, five of us […]

The devil takes the hindmost…an epic tale of WVCC drama at the Warrington 4Up

Two caption competitions on the go here –1. For the story. The caption above is Craig’s. John Conboy has suggested “you may feel a little prick” but I’ve decided that this fails the decency filter!2. For the picture below. If you ask me, Dave looks like he’s enjoying Craig’s attention rather too much…Anyway an energy […]

Penmachno & Marin Trails 27 June

Penmachno & Marin Trails 27 June

Turned out nice eventually. This is the atmospheric view across to Moel Siabod from the Dragon’s Back on the Marin trail. Just Andy B and I tackled this one after Penmachno in the morning where we were joined by Alan Cook of BNECC. Despite the drizzle it was warm and great fun combining these two […]

About 12 of us rode to Audlem. A perfect day: sunny and warm, a cloudless sky, good company, brisk riding. Our sympathies went to all those of you out there who were stuck in an office!

Oulton Park 3

Oulton Park 3

This will be hard as I was a bit too busy chatting to take in much of what went on, (apologies) but here goes…lots of WVCC riders in the action… It was a warm night with a thunderstorm threatening – we had a few drops of rain as we started but it never developed into […]

A touch of romance…

A touch of romance…

Romance was in the air this week. The long group did a fabulous ride direct out to Algreave, up the Dunbars. Reaching the cafe were Kevan, Andy, Dennis, Kevin, Craig, and two new riders. This is where Romance Number One comes in – our two new riders, Sian and Dan, have just come back from […]

A wet Wednesday…

A wet Wednesday…

Thanks to Claire for this report… This Wednesday the rain fell and continued to fall. Only 8 intrepid riders ventured forth, and all agreed that they had pressing business and could only make a short run! I wonder why? Only Dennis had a cast iron excuse ( no pun intended) as he had to take […]

Oulton Park 2

Oulton Park 2

Another phenomenal turn out. This week we were split into three races, with the “oldies” going first. Dave Astles, Kevan and Graham all made their presence known at the front of the pack on various occasions but missed the decisive break of four riders which got away with about 4 laps to go and stayed […]

Ruthin in the sunshine…

Ruthin in the sunshine…

Thanks to Kevin Campbell for this report on Sunday’s club run – I was otherwise engaged (see Bogblog for details!) On what proved to be one of the nicest days of the summer so far, a large group of over 20 gathered at the club house. It was especially good to see Andy P making […]

Helping set course today for @WeaverValleyCC for @nwcca race tomorrow. I hope the wind dies down! πŸŒͺ pic.twitter.com/c06JEpWqY1
