MTB rides are back !!

21 05 2015

Light nights, warmer weather and a need to do something different =  MTB action at Hanchurch !!sleepless 2009 smaller

Starting on the 27th May – Wednesday evenings – 7pm onwards – meet in the top car park for a couple of hour blast around some fantastic natural trails

Don’t expect way marked trails, cafes, shower rooms etc – this is good old school trail riding and it does get mucky when it’s wet!!!

More details and location maps are on the MTB page here

 





THE TOUR of BRITAIN !

14 05 2015

IMG_0323 Eric Wilkinson has set off on “THE” Tour of Britain – a 6 week circumnavigation of our coastline starting in Chester and travelling in a clockwise direction

Eric send this message before he set off;-

Hi Everyone,
43 days in the saddle – 3,635 miles (approx. 90 miles per day) – an estimated 3.4 million pedal revolutions and how many saddle sores – well, I don’t know, but I have taken plenty of precautions!
I will text you occasionally to let you know my progress or not! but have attached my schedule which you may find interesting reading.
I will have my phone on me but not sure what the signal will be like in the more remote areas, but feel free to call/text me at any time, to let me know how you are getting on – however, I will probably only have it on in the evening.
Enjoy your racing, training and riding but stay safe and I will look forward to seeing you all in late June (hopefully not before!)
Regards,
Eric
Everyone at the club wishes him every success on this epic marathon – the only downside he’s going to be fitter than ever when he gets back so Sunday club runs are going to be pacey !!
His itinerary is here Eric – Tour Itinarary 3635
