Six on tour this morning for a pleasant ‘easy ride’ to the King’s Arms at Tregony. The weather was fresh and sunny (how many times could we have said that last summer?) and, after hauling ourselves out of Tresillian up the hill toward Ruan Laihorne we all settled down to a very pleasing stroll. A brief stop at St Michael Penkevil to admire, from on high, the confluence of the Tresillian and Truro Rivers (Jude getting photogenic at this point) and onwards into the woods at Ruan Lanihorne. Peter at this juncture related a story about puncturing at Helford one day and positively revelling in the opportunity to leisurely repair his miscreant tyre in such lovely surroundings! Oh, the joys of cycling.
Sorry, back to the script – past Sett Bridge into Ruan Lanihorne and then an easy meander into Tregony direct and into the ‘Arms of the King’. The little tug up the hill into the village is always unwelcome.
Nice to see Barry (and Jennie) at the stop. Lunch on such a nice day, was predictably taken ‘al fresco’ and an easy amble back via Trewithen ensued. As they say, “what’s not to like”. Beautiful………………
