Touching on chaos theory whilst pursuing academia in a previous life I return to this mathematical concept on Sunday’s WCC roadie run. The ride is to Leamington Lakes east of Moreton in Marsh and there is a good turnout amounting to 11. As last week the feeling of autumn is abounding but the warm westerly wind that favours our outbound journey negates the need for ‘The rug up’
El Presidente blesses us with a guest appearance together with his far more attractive other half the Lovely Lou and from the off leads the way. He’s particularly keen on riding in pairs with a sense of ... See more

Free cycle coaching sessions for WCC members!

I am currently completing my level 2 British cycling coaching qualification. As part of the course, I will be planning, delivering and evaluating a series of 6 coaching sessions. These will take place in a traffic free environment during October/November (dates, times and location TBC - although they are likely to be Saturday mornings in/around Winchcombe).

The sessions will focus on key skills including riding in a group, riding through and off, bike handling, cornering and gear selection (sessions can be tailored to meet the needs of the ... See more

The chosen route for the Sunday Spin this week was code named ‘The Oxfordshire Raid’ Its a steady tread to Ramsden and an opportunity for the proletariat of The Combe to rub shoulders with the bourgeoisie of West Oxon.

The morning resonates the onset of autumn and as I climb Stanway a feel-good factor is in the making.
The gluttons for punishment have agreed to meet at the top of Stanway and ride to start point in Stow. A gang of seven congregate at the summit of Stanway in dribbles and consist of moi, Captain, The Veteran, (boasting once again the Bobby Dazzlers)The Pupil, Scouting ... See more

A few days late, but the results are in for the August segment. It's that man 'Brendon Hill' who claims the maximum, chapeau sir.

Two months to go until the curtain comes down on the league and it's pretty tight at the top. This month is a on the commuter run from Gretton towards Gotherington, with a pull up past Prestcott before a nice run down, finishing by the nursery (garden variety).

Blast Round Bredon Hill

Waking up to an inspiring Autumn morning it’s a pleasure to tread on down to ‘The Combe’ from Toddington to meet the other troops. Arriving at the Library, Veteran Mason is first at the starting gate and chomping at the bit to get out of the stalls. Apparently The Pupil has signed in but disappeared to scrabble around the cash points in search of funding. At 8.30 Railway Rog turns up – bang on time and reflecting train reliability of yesteryears. Finally Double Agent Ballanger out for a leg stretcher before his End to End mission next weekend. We are ... See more

Tour of Britain Stage 4 passes closest to us here in Winchcombe on Wednesday going through Ilmington/Ebrington at around 13.30 +/-.
Weather forecast looks good so this would be a great opportunity for those members of WCC with the time to cycle up to watch the peloton that contains Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome no less.
The MTB group hope to plan an off road route up towards Ebrington.
It would be great to have the roadies and the MTB in Club colours to support the Tour.

Great Sunday MTB ride out yesterday.
After an unintended drop down into Broadway we had a hard off road effort to tackle to get back on to the escarpment then tracking back via Broadway Tower and the Mount descent.
