Houston Marathon – Sunday January 15

Congratulations to all participants in yesterday’s marathon and half marathon races, whether you ran or volunteered. Once again, NWCC supplied a large number of bike guides to AWD athletes, and schussers for the main race. My friend and club member Wendy Larsen won the AWD race by a large distance in 1 hour 22 minutes, ably assisted by Kevin Fogelsanger, who took my place at short notice. Bravo Wendy! And bravo to all of you, too many to mention! Great job! – Geoff Donnelly

Spring Creek Greenway Ride – Thursday October 27

And that’s a wrap! It’s been a great season on the Spring Creek Greenway! Made a bunch of new friends, watched folks grow stronger and smarter on the bike, trained for all kinds of cool stuff, and most of all had a great time! Next year after we spring forward these rides will return. Till then, don’t be strangers, hit another NWCC ride, or post up here or reach out to club leadership if you want to put a ride on, or are just looking for a ride partner. Next Thursday at the usual 5:30 pm I’ll be at Hop Scholar pub if you’d like to share a beer and tell some stories! – David Harman

Hump Day Ride – Wednesday October 26

A nice no-drop group ride out of Hockley today. Thanks Wendy, Barbara & Craig for leading the group. Did the Jellystone park-Prairie View Route and then some. – Al Pitre

Coffee Ride – Saturday October 22

Coffee shop ride l saw lots of scary sights. – Tom Miller

Spring Creek Greenway Ride – Thursday October 20

Tonight’s greenway ride was probably the fastest ever. Raced the sunset, got 21 miles and won by 4 minutes! Great group tonight. Not pictured is Gene, who had to run. Nice to see Tom M on his killer ebike! One more week to go…

Zube Park Ride – Saturday October 15

What a perfect day for a ride! Thank you Amy for leading the No Drop group!

Coffee Ride – Saturday October 15

Spring Creek Greenway Ride – Thursday October 13

Fun and spicy group working to beat the sunset tonight! Also, we’ve got a new mascot! Junior in training? 😀

Hump Day Ride – Wednesday October 12

The “Grandma/Grandpa Hump Day Touring” Group had some special quests today. Kelly and her two daughters, Ashlynn, and Alaina, who are regulars at the NWCC Saturday Morning Coffee ride joined us today. We also had some familiar folks from our pre-pandemic days return today, Don Sanders, Sandy Powell, and Ken Kuntz. So, if you have been wanting to come out and ride on Wednesday out of Hockley Community Center but afraid you will slow down a group, please join us. It is a no drop group, and you don’t have to be a grandpa or grandpa as you can see. It is like the Coffee ride without the coffee shop stop (we are working that part). Thanks to David, dad to Ashlynn & Alaina, for the action photos that follow. – Al Pitre

NWCC in France – July 25 to August 5

August 5 – That’s it for this year! Mont Ventoux for our final ride and some personal challenges were met with some determined performances. We’re now performing some refueling operations, but there’s lemon drizzle cake!

August 3 – Seven NWCCers are still riding around Provence and, generally, behaving ourselves. We’ve had some 16% inclines, some rapid descents, some cols and mountains to get up, and some more rapid descents, on one of which one of us managed an OFOM in Strava. The pool’s been well used, food has been scoffed, wine and beer have been consumed and, all in all, we’re having a great time. And we found a new village called Prudence, too. Two more rides and we’re done.
I’ll be back in 2023!
July 31 – New week, new gang! Six NWCC members arrived yesterday, and today was the first ride for them after collecting their bikes from Albion Cycles in Sault. Up and over the Col de Negron we went, followed by a fast decent into Séderon for lunch, and then back to base for cake.
As one of the new arrivals said, it’s a bit different to the usual Saturday Zube ride!
July 29 – NWCC was well represented at the top of Mont Ventoux today, on a wet and windy day. You know it’s a climb when you feel you’re getting a break as it clicks down to a 6% grade. And, due to the damp roads for the descent, we had to keep our descending speed reasonably sensible at a maximum 40 mph. Chalet Reynard still does the crepes etc. but it ain’t what it used to be. However, we all took the right road down and a fab time today, and all week, has been had by us all. New victims arrive tomorrow.

July 27- NWCC in France today. Hills/mountains/cols, laughs, downhills, sun, friends, grub, wine, cake. Despite all that, we’re surviving.

July 25 – Geoff Donnelly is at Serre Des Ormes – Cycling, Walking & Running Retreat. NWCC and guest Paul W-W of Serre des Ormes on a fabulous ride. The 16% gradient was interesting!

Katy Flatland Century – July 17
